“Why Would You Do That?”

Yesterday I looked at my stats for this blog, not the usual stats I see here on my lap top, but on my phone.

It was a little scary. I’ve written enough blog posts to blanket the planet with Sandhill Cranes, dogs and mountains with some political leaflets thrown in.

I remember the first time I ever heard of a “web log.” I was at lunch with a fellow teacher and wannabe writer. He was telling me how the world of writing was changing. His students were going to start writing their journals as a “web log.”

I thought, “Why? How is that going to be different?” At the time I didn’t have the Internet at home. Of course NOW I see the advantage, not the least of which would be not having to lug around piles of spiral notebooks.

And now I’m more than 2000 blog posts into this and that doesn’t count the numerous blogs I’ve deleted hoping to save myself from having to pay $100 a year for a domain name and no ads. Thank you everyone for reading my homework. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I love your homework — it’s among the first I read each day, and as it’s posted! The cranes are magnificent, and your dogs are great friends. And I love reading about other parts of the Wild West ๐Ÿ™‚ !

  2. From the Sunday comics (Heart of the City) today: “I found this website from before I was born – for ‘blogging’. ‘Blogging’ comes from web-log…”. It goes on to make clear that those of us who blog are ancient and out of touch…
