Blog

A weird word, don't you think? A few years ago, I had never even heard the word. Now, it's common and most everyone knows it. I wondered how it began and found out that the first 'blog' was begun in 1994, though the term 'blog' wasn't coined until 1999. The word comes from web log and morphed into we blog, therefore, blog!
In my day, we hand wrote things like letters, (Gasp! Can you imagine!?) I have journals from back in the day, which I won't share here to spare you my angst.



I also already blog in my scrapbooks, well, when I actually do them, but more on that later.....


So, a couple of months ago a friend sent me a link to a blog. I thought, ok, what is all this about? A few hilarious stories later, I was hooked! I spent hours at work, oops, I mean at home reading and laughing until I had tears rolling down my face. I have since found others that are also humorous, heart breaking, informative, or just plain interesting. I realized, it's just another way to journal, and that way all my family and friends can read at once and I won't have to bring back my carpal tunnel typing numerous emails. So, here it is. I'm not a journalist, a photographer, a comedian, or a writer, I'm just me, take it or leave it.
