    Is it o.k. to post the link here? http://mycommentary.weebly.com/

    I don't know how to format sites like that very well, and the topic titles should be on the side not on the top, but hopefully you can read it if you want to.

    I just started a new blog too, however, I have only posted once. I think I need to get to it! I will post the link when I get around to it. I just have so many things that I really should be doing, that I don't have time to fit everything in. I will read yours Janice, if you read mine! lol

    Thank you... If I can do it, anybody can... try www.weebly.com, it's not too difficult to figure out.

    Oh, I have a blog, if you could call it that, but it's not what I'd like.

    That's a fairly nice read, @Janice Martin, interesting to us members of this forum. And if I may suggest, why not put in some photographs that are relevant. We have a blog about pets and our first articles were just text until someone suggested on the pictures which would make the blog more interesting. And he was right because photos are good to look at and definitely enhances the article.

    Good luck to your blog and keep us posted here of your new articles.

    @Corie: Thanks, that sounds like a good idea... I'll see what pictures/images I can come up with.

    May have been me. There was a link in the earlier pages of 'Reading and Writing', posted under the heading, Take A Look.

    Judging by the responses, this "blog" deal is a significant, far-reaching concept geared to internet use.

    So, what is a "blog", then?? Frank

    @Janice Martin

    Web log. Logs we burned in our stoves in MO. Can you forgive my ignorance of the current jargon?

    I've read several of your blog entries, Janice. Good going. You have something to say. That's all mine lacks and some good editing.

    Not meaning to be cantankerous, but how does one know which member one's post is "aimed at"? Is it me, or Janice? No offense, eh? Frank

    One should say which member he/she is addressing.

    I have a blog, too, although I have not written there lately. I guess I should get busy with that again. Mine is more of a family history type of blog, and I just add stories from the past as they come to me.
    It all started because my oldest son asked me to write down some of the things that I remembered from when I was growing up and about his grandparents. Rather than just make a list or send an email each time I remembered something; I decided to make an online record, and then whomever was interested could read the stories as I added them.
    I actually enjoy doing that, and it does make me feel like I am preserving important information about what my mom and dad were like, and what life was like back when I was growing up.
    I set mine up through google, and it was fairly easy to do, even for a person with no experience, like me. I think this is a great way for us seniors to share family history with our children and grandchildren.
