SOL16 Day 4 of 31: Celebrating Ten Years

IMG_0785Everyone has a story and you can catch up on more slices for the  SOLSC at
Two Writing Teachers.

Day 29 of  the Found Objects Poetry Challenge was this photo from Diane Mayr.  It’s festive and I’m celebrating.


Hooray, hooray
my blogs are ten
I remember when
blogs became
a writing place to play

Yes, my blogs, Check It Out, Solace in Nature (photo) , and this blog turned ten the end of February.

I remember another librarian in the district talking about blogs as a means to communicate what life in the library was like.  I ‘m a jump in kind of person so I was eager to learn about blogging.

My blogs migrated early.  Check it Out: Life and Books in a K5 Library School Setting was the first blog. This entry from 2007 talks about it being my blogaversary. Those first year entries are in cyberspace somewhere.

It wasn’t long before I needed a personal blog for my writing, Deowriter was born.  When I moved from Blogspot to WordPress, I thought I would just have a photo blog at Blogspot but I have a difficult time keeping up the photos.

I think I could do a better job with blogging on a more consistent manner.  It is why I love these month challenges as the give me a boost to write.

  1. Congratulations of having a blog for ten years. I hope you have fun this month and this challenge is a boost to your writing. You have stories only you can tell.

    Ten years is a big deal, and I’m impressed that you are managing different blogs, too, Jone. I’ve been wondering if it’s time for a change for me.

  3. Tara Smith says:

    Congratulations, Jone…the thing about blogging is that it grows you as a writer and a thinker, AND it connects you to a world in which you “meet” word lovers, poets, and thinkers every day.
