From diary to blog

Why would I  blog, I asked myself?  While thinking and reading about diaries and blogging I came across the following quote:  “the instinct to record daily life and thoughts is as ancient as  handwriting ” by Alexandra Johnson .

The old way

So here I am almost  60 years old and on the verge of evolving from writing a diary to blogging. I want to start the journey with a short history of  diary writing. The oldest diaries come from the Middle East and East Asian cultures and date from as early as the 2nd century AD. Through the centuries diaries have changed from beautifully handwritten and illustrated documents to typed pages and now the wonder of blogging, facebook, twitter, and digital photo dairies.

Now I will take the plunge and trust that my words will mean something not only to me but to others as well.
