Start Here

How do I start?  I thought this would be easy.  I have  stories to tell about my childhood and my family, but it is not easy to get started. 


 Dedication:
I dedicate the stories in this blog to my grandsons Jeremy and Dylan.   And to their children. 


Introduction:
When my mother was alive I helped her write a book of stories about her life.  I sent her  a book  that was full of questions to help her remember.  She answered them in many long hand written letters.


My part was easy.  I took what she wrote and organized it a bit. I entered it onto the computer, had some family pictures scanned and added. I used "quick pics" as illustrations, and had the books printed and bound. 


After they were done, we went back to Wisconsin and had a family picnic where we celebrated Mom's book and had her sign a copy for each of her children and grandchildren.


Now I am doing the same for myself.  I'm using the blog format because I am comfortable with it.
I will be using  "labels" to organize the posts.  


I'm also going to play with making audio tracks of the posts. 



So, lets get started!


Audio version : Merikay tells the story

  2. I love this.

    I might even copy your idea but I need to do something about my extra long Blog reader list. It aint healthy to have such a long list but somehow I feel as though I'm betraying someone when I delete their blog. I must get tough.

    I could save hours if I read less.

  3. Merikay - I was telling Barnes about your blogs - and when I mentioned that you were writing stories about your life he asked if you had ever read "Angle of Repose" by Wallace Stegner -- tho the protagonist in this novel goes back to the lives of his grandparents which he has to research. I think that the fact your idea started with helping your mother write her stories triggered the association with the book.
