Just a Few Thoughts About Blogging
Submitted by Pam on Tue, 08/30/2011 - 21:22
I am loving my new journals! And all worries that the edges of my hand woven covers might not hold - unfounded! The covers are holding up very nicely! And a bonus - that hand woven fabric is just plain heaven to hold in my hands while journaling.
The page above is the very first entry in my new journal - well - I should say, my first journal!
I found this brilliant thought on ihanna's blog not long ago and fell in love with it. So I put it in the very front where I would be reminded of Hanna's wisdom every time I open my journal.
I just had to share it with you in case you missed it on her blog. Very good food for thought don't you think?
Another very wise friend, Tsoniki, wrote these words in a comment on a recent post and I have just added them to my journal as well.
"If you always watch what others are doing, how are you able to do your own thing?"
Tsoniki shares her thoughts and of course crafty goodness on her blog Me Being Crafty. Personally, I think she hit the nail squarely on the head with this statement about crafting and blogging. Her wise words apply to so many aspects of our lives, don't they?
Actually, many of my favorite blogs are written by people who simply do their own thing!
There are as many reasons for blogging as there are people participating in the blogisphere. While we are sort of on the subject, I wanted to share a couple of what I consider very good reasons for blogging that are near and dear to my heart.
Denise (Said the Hobbit) is writing her blog mainly for her great grand children so they will better know her, what she loves doing and how she does it. Think about it! How many of us would give anything to have the chance to know more about our great grand parents? For that matter, even our grand parents.
What an amazing opportunity blogging provides to pass on to our grandchildren our stories, our dreams, our experiences - intimate, firsthand knowledge.
Sasha lives in Sweden and is raising four beautiful children. I read her blog mainly because I see something happening in her family that I view as immensely important and that is ... that almost every single day she strives to provide her children with opportunities to build and exercise their imaginations.
Shash's main reason for writing Squashed Tomatoes is to create a "journal" - a "scrapbook" - a detailed record of all their family adventures so that her children will have this treasury of memories to enjoy as they get older and then perhaps share with their own children!
Next time you are wondering what to blog about or asking why you are blogging in the first place, perhaps one of these reasons might get you going again!
Or just take Hanna's advice and have a picnic in the ditch!
