Ahhh – What a Picture Perfect Day :)

If I could special order weather for the perfect summer day, today would have been pretty darn close. The sky is blue, the temps are in the high 70s, and the air isn’t at all humid. Of course, as usual, I spent it all inside at work, but I did come home on my lunch break, just to get outside for a few minutes. I had intended to make a run over to Walmart tonight to get some of those little tabs to label my contributions to the tag sale, but it is just too nice to spend the last bit of the day going shopping. So the shopping excursion has been postponed until tomorrow, and tonight we are going to go out and have a nice walk.

At the risk of overkill, I guess I’ll add my 2 cents to the ongoing discussion of what to blog, how to blog, content of blogging, etc etc. I find it so interesting to see how interconnected this “rv-ing blogging community” is. It’s so obvious when one person blogs about a certain subject and then all of a sudden topics on the same theme are popping up on the other blogs I read with that person’s particular take on the subject. I’m not going to say what I think a blog should or shouldn’t include – that topic has been more than adequately covered!! What I wanted to add is that I’ve found it very interesting to read what different people consider important, or the opposite!, in a blog. It doesn’t bother me – if I am or am not doing this or that, that’s just my style, and I probably couldn’t change it if I tried. As far as page elements, such as text and font, I did think about enlarging my print size, but decided the large print look just wasn’t for me. Winking smile I haven’t taken anyone’s opinion on their blog personally though, it’s their opinion and they’re entitled to it. (That’s just my opinion.)

The thing I’ve found the most intriguing as the discussion has progressed is, again, the sense of that larger, RV community that inspired me to start writing this blog in the first place. And like any community, people aren’t always going to agree with each other, but isn’t that just life? Smile


  1. I read what is of interest to me. There are parts of most bloggers writings that I skip over. Usually it is the stuff about their family visits, but they are writing for themselves and for their families. I feel privileged to be able to read what they are writing at all!

    As for me, I just write what I want.

    Oh, and I love days in the 70's to!

  2. I feel that everyone has different reasons to blog. Mine initially was for myself, sort of a roadmap to the full time life. That way, years from now, I can go back and reread where I started.

    Now that I've let others know that I have a blog, I hope that I inspire others to do the same.

    Once we are on the road, I hope to use my blog as a window into our life for other RV'rs and family as well.

  3. I feel much the same way, Laurie. A big part of it was going to be to let our family and friends know where we are, and what we are up to. Then when I started reading others, I was inspired to start putting it together a lot earlier than I initially planned, and now I enjoy it so much that I'm glad I jumped in. :)

  4. I reserve the right to disagree! Surely that will stir up somethin!!!
