Baby Boomers: Blog for your grandchildren.
It is a fact that baby boomers have grandchildren. Some of you may have lots of grandchildren. Now is the time to keep connected. A blog is an easy, low-tech way to stay in touch. adult proxy
I am not going to define blogs, or give you a long history on blogging. It is a technology that has been available for years, but now it’s the hip thing to do.
If you have ever thought of having a travel journal or cooking lessons for your family, this is the way to go.
Doesn’t it seem that the grandkids are far more advanced in technology? They have a language of their own, and they rarely share. Often, you will find kids on a computer, cell phone or mp3 player. Catching their attention is difficult and you want to be able to communicate with them.
What can we do to keep up? If you use email to replace snail mail then you are on the right track. Have you heard of blogging?? Don’t be afraid, it is easy to start one.
What would be some reasons to get a blog?
The whole family can visit a blog, anytime. The pages never go away, so information is not lost. Blogs are interactive. When you post to your blog, others can comment about that post. Blogs allow photos. Say you want to write about your tomato plants. You can talk about how they have grown, how many tomatoes you have this year and then snap a photo with your digital camera. Blogs have voice recording. You can set up your blog to have little conversations recorded. What would it be like to read a book into the phone, and that recording would be posted for all the grandchildren.
