I started blogging in April of 2011 and blogged consistently for about a year. Blogging served as a therapy; it allowed me to get all of my feelings out about the successes and challenges of being a full time working mother and having a full time career. Over the past year, I’ve fallen off the blogging bandwagon and realize now more than ever how much I miss it.
My Grandmother was a wonderful woman and I had the distinct privilege to share her birthday. When she passed away, she left a wonderful legacy. Every book she had ever owned contained a little passage written just by her: where she was when she bought the book, who she was with, if she liked to book, or didn’t and for those special books such as ‘101 Famous Poems’ she left a bunch of inspirational messages that I look and read on a regular basis.
Moving into the digital world, I’ve found my library of hard-back books decreasing and purchases of online books increasing. Blogging is the tool that will help me carry on her legacy; leaving important life lessons for my children and those that hold a special place in my heart.
