I began blogging when a very dear friend urged me to co-author articles for her website. I wrote a few but it wasn’t until I joined Twitter in October 2008 when I realized that 1) sometimes I wanted to say more than 140 characters could allow; 2) I wanted to say something more visually than text could allow; and 3) I wanted a record of my journey, my life. My children and grand children and great grand children will all read this one day. I think they’ll enjoy me.
