I am not usually one to follow trends. Sometimes this works to my benefit, sometimes it works against me. I believe this is an inherited trait. For example, my family did not own a CD player until I was almost finished with high school. I already had a few CD's by that time, but had nothing to play them on! We only got a DVD player because Fellowship of the Ring was being released and we wanted high quality. I resisted getting a cell phone for many years because I did NOT want to be at the beck and call of a little mobile device when anyone had the inkling to talk to me. So... even (or maybe especially) in the field of technological advances, keeping with the times is not a high priority. Of course, I have since come to realize the benefits of having a CD player, DVD player, and a cell phone.
This silly technological independence of mine has long kept me from creating a blog. I said, "Everyone's doing it, so I won't! If someone wants to know what's going on in my life, they can pick up the phone or send me an email and ask me, for Pete's sake!" But the other night I was talking with some friends (who naturally have blogs and told me I should start one), and they told me that you can create a book from all of your entries after one year. Well, I immediately thought that this was something I needed to do for posterity (family history, anyone?).
So...here is my blog. I do think my life is sometimes quite entertaining, so it may appeal to some, but even if it doesn't, that's just fine by me. This is posterity's blog!
