Family Blogs and First World Problems
A number of months ago, my oldest daughter started her own blog. She too is an aspiring writer, and she wanted to get involved in the writer community a bit more. Not only is blogging good for that, but it’s a good way to stretch the writing muscles and the creativity ligaments. I didn’t make a big fuss of her blog when she launched it because I wanted her to establish herself in her own right, and make her own way. Yes, I was being Dad. But I think she’s started to do that, so I want to encourage you to go visit her blog. You may have already without knowing she’s my daughter. Please don’t hold that against her. You may even like her better, which is fine. Really. *sniff*. Seriously, though, go visit her blog, leave comments, and generally be the nice people you all are:
My wife has also just launched a blog. She’s loves cooking and food-type stuff. She also like to tell stories. Mix all that together, and you have her blog, Quips and Cuisine. Again, she’s just started, so there’s not a lot there right now, but she intends to post recipes and food-related stories from her childhood… and maybe from our family! Eeek! I’m vegetarian, and she makes some great veggie food, so you can expect an interesting mix of cooking ideas. Pay her a visit, leave a comment, and check back from time to time to see what’s new:
Finally, I’m sure you’ve all seen this, but in case you haven’t, my SecondBorn brought it to my attention. While I don’t want to belittle anyone’s suffering and hardship, no matter how small it is in the grand scheme of things, I think this helps us get some perspective. And it’s funny:
Have a great Monday!
