And I don't mean that literally.....taking the bull by the horns...but you will see what I mean.
When I started my blog last year, I never realized how much fun, joy, and entertainment I would get out of blogging. Likewise, I did not realize that some of my older relatives would get just as much joy out of reading my blog and yours too. However, they have been on the outside looking in for nearly a year now, and I thought it was time to do something about it.
I have mentioned before to my aunt and mom that they needed a blog. They are both seventy-ish and think I am crazy. I have gotten every excuse imaginable....I don't have anything to say...I am not a writer...I don't know how to do that....nobody would want to read what I had to say....I can not take pictures....on and on. I always replied with yes you can. I told them if I could figure this out on my own, then they could learn this too with my help. Still...after all my gentle nudging...I had no takers.
I decided to do something about that! I got the idea if I took the time to build them their very own blog, they would walk through the door of blog land and stop peeking in the window.
Let me introduce you to my Aunt Lavoice's new blog....Click Here to have a peek. My aunt posted a post today, it is her first one. Please stop by and leave her a comment to welcome her.
My aunt is a wonderful gardener, her yard in the summer is a showcase on our side of town. People are always stopping in front of her yard to comment on her beautiful flowers. She also collects antiques and has lots of vintage things. She also has weekly visits with her great grandson, and what better writing material is that? I know she will be a wonderful contributor to blog land.
Let me introduce you to Patsy, my mom's blog.....Click Here to have a visit. My mom has not took the step to post yet, but there is a test post there, so you can leave a word of encouragement in your comment to nudge her along.
My mom is an eclectic type of gal. She does a little bit of everything. She loves decorating at her church for functions and always does a wonderful job. She is always planning something for her ladies meeting, and she just does not realize she has lots to share. She is a avid snowman collector....she could write a book about that alone! She likes to travel with her friends and she has more stories to tell, she just needs a little nudge
Please take a moment to stop by and welcome these two seventy-ish ladies to blog land and offer a bit of encouragement. Maybe if they hear that all of us struggled with the same issues at first they will have their confidence built up and not feel so intimidated.
Thanks in advance everyone...I knew I could count on you to welcome them and make them feel welcome here in blog land.
