Alright, I’ve decided to become a BLOGGER!!! Having a blog is the newest thing, especially with the younger generation--my daughters and their friends. Their blogs are adorable and a great way to keep up with each others’ lives and families.

A few years ago, I thought it would be fun to start a website for people who have lived and still live in Tempe Tenth Ward as a way of staying in touch. I tried but couldn’t find the right source to do it. Then lately I’ve discovered blogging. This seems to be the answer. For those of you of my generation (grandparents) and don’t know what the heck a blog is, here is the definition:

A blog (short for weblog) is a personal online journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. It’s a series of entries posted to a single page in reverse-chronological order. It’s a web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often links provided by the writer to other peoples’ blog or other websites. A blog is usually updated frequently, maybe monthly, weekly or even daily, depending on the blogger.

Many of you may already have a blog that I don’t know about cause I’ve never been invited to view it. But if you don’t, I’d really like to encourage you to start one. It’s a great way to keep a journal to share your thoughts, happenings, family goings on, pictures, recipes, good news, trials, opinions, etc. with friends and family. If you don’t want it out there for anybody to find and view, there is an option to make it private so that only those you invite can view it. So here we go!!!!!!
