A little explanation

This is a little explanation for those readers who are trying to understand why they can’t read one of our blog posts with “Protected” in the title (Hi Mom).

There is a lot of information about our life that is “sensitive but not classified.”  I’m not 100% sure what the policy is about what I can share yet so I have decided to put a password on some of our blog posts.  This will protect the information from casual readers but not from serious hackers.  The information is what I would put in a personal email so it’s not that secret.

If you would like to read a blog post that is protected send me an email or put something in the comments and I will send you the password.

    I’m not a lurker, I’m a serious fan:) I would love to be able to keep up on your adventures. So, if I’m worthy, can I have the password?

    You mean I can’t let my google reader do the hard work and I have to actually come to the site…

      Sorry Man. I hate protected posts for that reason but I promise to keep it to a minimum.

    We need to be on the “PROTECTED” list. Please send us a password -pretty please!

  8. Glen · August 7, 2010

    Hey Jason….I told you we needed a “code.” I’ve got the pass word and will be expecting a nightly post from where ever you are and whatever you are doing.

    Erin, Jason and Family,

    My mom just sent me your address and I am so excited!!! I would love to keep in touch especially since we may be your closest family around! I just found out where you are going!…althought I won’t say where since I don’t know if it is confidential:)…but I have to tell you that I will be there next week for a meeting. Let me know if you need my to scout out anything like brands of cereal, marshmallows and ranch dressing:)

    Can’t wait to see you and your family on the “dark side” of the globe.

    Hello Jason and Erin, thank you for sharing your stories! About to join the 135th FSS orientation. Would love to keep up with your adventures as we enter this new life with the FS. Please email the password if okay with you.

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog. I’m about to start my FSS orientation class next month and wanted to see if you wouldn’t mind answering a few questions. We’re also from Utah and LDS and not sure what to expect. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
