    This is definitely something to look into!! On a side note, y’all should update your family section and pictures. I think the family has grown a little bit since Thanksgiving 2014!! <3

    Shot in the dark here, but are you guys ever going to post like you used to? After several years of consistent blog posts about every major family event, it’s kind of a bummer not having any posts at all anymore. Except of course when you’re plugging Erin and Lawson’s music and your friend Andy’s new CD. There are huge family milestones that have never even been mentioned on the blog that, a few years ago, would have garnered multiple posts.

    *Michael’s engagement was never even mentioned. Each of the other married children each had a blog post (Erin had 2!) complete with numerous pictures to celebrate the occasion.

    *Michael’s wedding was never mentioned. Each of the other married children had MULTIPLE blog posts with dozens of pictures celebrating their weddings.

    *Bradley’s 1st birthday was never mentioned.

    *It’s obvious that Nathan is in a courtship relationship with Ashley Salyer and yet not a single word has been mentioned. When the other couples started courting there was a blog post with pictures to celebrate the event. Even Zach’s courtship with Sarah was blogged!

    It’s like y’all have fallen off the face of the Earth! I know I’m not the only one who misses the blog because it used to be really amazing. Y’all answered questions and replied to comments and really made us all feel like we were a part of the family. You don’t do that anymore and it’s very disappointing. Not having a good family of my own is probably why I’ve grown to be really attached to yours. It’s always been a dream of mine to be part of a family like yours and I miss feeling, through blog posts and regular updates, that I am a part of the family.

    I’m really sorry if I’m pushy and annoying. I know y’all probably don’t like me because I’m always nagging at you. It’s fine; not many people do like me. I still really love your family and I wish you nothing but the best. I always get super excited seeing a new post on Instagram and I love Bringing up Bates. But I do really miss the blog the way it used to be. <3

      I was thinking the same thing. I love seeing new updates but there haven’t been any recent ones. Is there another blog that y’all post pictures & updates on?
      Thanks, McKenna
