For me, blogging started as a way to let people know what I was doing, where I was telling stories and a place to post pictures of those storytelling events. It has since morphed into more of an informational based blog. However I have not blogged in over a year which is why I decided to take the challenge of blogging 26 days in April.
We've all read various blogs. We know most bloggers write about what they know. Their observations, experiences, thoughts. There are cooking blogs, dog blogs, blogs for “cat ladies,” blogs about writing, storytelling blogs and the list goes on and on.
In writing today’s blog I discovered something I did not know – the origin of the word blog. Back in the 90’s when blogs began they were called weblogs. That’s web + log = weblog. But someone who could be considered a wordsmith changed weblog to blog, one syllable is faster to say than two. And isn't this the technological age where everything is going faster and faster?
So, what does a storyteller/writer blog about? If you guessed Story, you won’t surprised to be told – “That’s right!” Stayed tuned!
