Blogging 101

Mom mailed me a newspaper article titled Blogging 101, a very interesting article. The term “Blog” is shortened from the term “web log.” I always wondered why the term “Blog.” There are about 175,000 new blogs started each day. Who knew? When I started my Blog it was to keep my children informed as to what was going on at home. I never imagined there would be such an interest with friends & other family members. Although, Mick has never read it. Thank goodness, I am still scared he will find out why we had all the ants.
Some of the feedback on my Blog; “I check your Blog each morning.”, “I always like the entries with lots of photos.” during a dinner with friends “Do you have your camera? We want to get on the Blog.” and “Are you keeping things from me to save up for your Blog?” Also, I’ve received emails and been given ideas for subjects. I’ve also learned to be careful with my posts. The day I talked about the football pool 94 people from all over the world looked at the blog. I am not sure if they were criminals or law enforcement. Thankfully, none have returned to view.
It will be nice a year from now to look back and see what went on. If no one ever read this thing again I would keep it up just to have the diary. Two family members have joined this means of keeping in touch with family & friends. I hope more will join in. I am so glad I’ve started one & my life is no more interesting than anyone else’s, so I know you can do it.

Keep up the good work, but for now I will still have to remain blogless.

I think that I may attempt this next. It looks like so much fun and it will give the family one more blog to visit everyday. I am so addicted to reading everyone's posts. Hopefully mine will be as exciting and entertaining. Watch for something next week.

Go Leigh Leigh!! Looking forward to your blog! I am considering it as well; in fact,I have a gmail account now--so I got that far! You have to give people over 50 a little extra time to accomplish these tasks!

Hey, I resent that over 50 comment. How old was the person that started this blog craze???
Let's give us middle agers some credit.

That's true, I guess I should say over 51. Of course I am not talking about you, but just myself!! And with a name like Gel-oh, you are as young as you feel!! I absolutely, positively give Gel-oh credit for starting quite a wonderful pastime and keeping everyone up-to-date. :)
