My one year Blogiversary

Next week, it will be about a year since I started this blog. My blog has evolved since I wrote my first post. I first started it as a way to improve my writing skills and then it became more of an online family scrapbook.

I've read through old posts and I'm so glad that I was able to write down some important family events and post pictures. It has become very important to me to document those events.

My goal is to eventually put everything that I wrote on this blog and compile it into a blog book- something that our family could always look through like an old family album.

The past two weeks, I've been sorting through old pictures and journals. As I went through the pictures, I started to remember events that occurred when the picture was taken, and I couldn't help but wish that blogging was invented when Moe was a baby!

I used to love to scrap book, but it took so much time. You spent more time figuring out how to place the pictures on the page than doing what was more important - writing down the memories. Blogging is so much easier- it's a combination of a journal and a scrapbook.

To celebrate my "One Year Blogiversary", I'll be posting a series of flashbacks; edited entries from old journals and posting old pictures, especially the ones of Moe.

I found a written report by Moe that he did for his school when he was 12 years old. It's titled, "My Life". He writes about favorite memories of his childhood.

Moe's report is already starting to decay with age, so what better way to preserve those memories than to record here it in this blog. The next few posts will be from Moe's report.

I'm looking forward to recording those flashbacks on my blog and it has been fun blogging. I can't imagine a day that I get tired of it!

I wish I had known about blogging when my Little One was a baby too .... it is a great way to capture so many of the little moments in life you will probably forget about without it!

My DIL does a book from her blogging --after every year. Well, she hasn't been doing it that long, so only has her book from 2008 and 2009 and it is so AWESOME. She has the computer stuff to download it. It is everything ...minus the comments.

good idea. I look forward to some of these "memories" of yours.

congrats. i have printed a blog book through blurb. it is so easy, it slurps all your posts and pictures in order and you can choose which posts to publish and which posts you don't want.
my children love going through each year that I have blogged about and read about themselves.
