The week the Pilot and I have spent a lot of time researching our ancestors. With this research, a lot of stories have surfaced. Some are relevant and some are not. Some have been entertaining, some empowering and some quite deflating. And it got me to thinking. Blogging is our platform now. Will the words we right and send into virtual space still be here in 100 years or 200 years when my five generations down grand-daughter wants to know my story?
I'm not sure. But I know I've enjoyed reading the letters and hearing the stories this week. So i'm inspired! Since i wrote my story a couple of weeks ago, or bits of it anyway and shared it with you, I beginning to think I'm behind the 8-ball and need to step up the pace. So,I figure there are two options:
- I can print my blog every year or every 5 years as a memoir, hoping that someone will stumble upon it in years to come and find it equally as intriguing. Print2Blog is a great resource for just that. Prices start around $14.95 and are incredible quality. Blurb is another great resource. Their smallest book starts at $12.99. Both of these work well with Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal and TypePad.
- I can start to journal. I know. We learned in school how to journal, but who really does that any more? Well, one day someone might want to read your story from your own handwriting. It might even give it more validity than your IP address. But Not just any journal will do. I'm going to use my own journalling paper and make it almost like a scrapbook.
