Q. Catchy. Who are you featuring now?
Q: Will you basically be featuring blogs that you already link to?
A: No. I will probably feature all those but I will also be featuring many others.
Q: Has your blog changed a lot over the past year. If so what about it has changed?
A: Yes, it really has evolved. In the first few months I was changing links and music and other things on a weekly basis. It was wearing me out. I did a lot of experimentation over the first few months as well. I really learned my lesson from the NABLOPOMO incident. Blogging is not an end in itself.
Q: Didn't you write about that in the End of blogging?
A: Sure did. Tackled it in Danger: Blogging as well. It is a theme I kept going back to. I constantly need to be reminded to put this blog in it's proper place. Another thing that changed was that the blog often took on a more personal nature than I thought it would when I started it.
Q: What do you think that was due to?
A: It was definitely due to the passing of my Brother last April.
Q: How did blogging affect your grieving process?
A: I think it both helped and hurt. It helped in the sense that I had an outlet to air my feelings. It hurt that it created an idea inside myself that because I blogged about it, I had dealt with it fully. But that's enough about that now. Ask me another question.
Q: Gladly. What have been some of the more surprising aspects of blogging over the past year.
A: I think most surprising is that I have started 2 more blogs and each of my oldest kids have started their own. Lucy can't wait until she can get in on the act.
Q: Isn't she already the act with all her Lucyisms?
A: She sure is.
Q: Do you have any more?
A: This past week she was on her way home from AWANA. She asked Amy if she (AMY) was a Christian and Amy said "yes, why." Lucy told her that she (LUCY) was not a Christian. Amy asked "why not, don't you believe in Jesus?" Lucy said, "Yes, but I'm not a Christian". Amy asked why not? Lucy said, "because I don't want to go to Medieval Times".
Q: Medieval Times! What's That?
A: It's a dinner theatre experience where there is jousting and knights and much merriment.
Q: That's quite a story, How do we move on from that?
A: Ask me what I'm doing tomorrow.
Q: Why can't I ask you right now?
A: Aren't I supposed to be handling the jokes?
Q: And shouldn't I be asking the questions?
A: Good point.
Q: What are you doing tomorrow?
A: Eating the leftover fish. Oh! On the blog! I am making a change t0 3 Things This Thursday. From now on I will call it Some Things This Thursday. That way if people only have 1 or two things going on they can still contribute.
Next Time: Some Things Thursday
