So back to why blog. The little history behind my iron was only told because my grandmother wrote it down. She wrote down so many little stories in her diaries, tidbits about her days. I see blogging as the modern diary, the ability to share things about my day, changes about the house documented with pictures, just being able to get stuff of my chest (oh the posts I write and never publish), and the ability to interact with and share information with people I would otherwise never have the chance to, as well as family and friends. I hope I live a long life, so all the stories I have to tell I can share with my children and grandchildren, but if not I will leave behind all of these pages of my words. Words they can read to get to know me better, or learn the story of the iron, or why I have a million old books, where the old typewriter came from, or read our favorite recipes.
If you blog I'd love to hear what your driving force is, or if there is a special sentiment behind a hobby you have! Share share! Comments are my favorite thing.
