My sister-in-law teaches a class on memoir writing and called last night to talk with me about electronic media and blog writing as a publication method.
All I could really tell her, other than the mechanics of putting a blog together, was that it gives me an outlet to express my thoughts and memories and to share information that I find interesting. It 's a real bonus to find others out there who share the same interests and with whom I can share an electronic friendship. Personally, I am somewhat isolated geographically and finding people to share ideas and interests, even electronically is a real treasure. I can imagine for people who are elderly or shut in, it is a real life line.
Feel free to share your thoughts in comments and perhaps she will be able to find some more ideas to share with her class.
