I've made a half-hearted attempt at a personal blog, jillballau, where I post the odd thought and, when I am travelling, a few reports and photos of the places I have visited. Whenever a friend lets me know that they are writing a travel blog I subscribe and enjoy the vicarious travel experiences I get from reading about their journeys.

As genealogists we look so much to the past as we gather stories of our ancestors for ourselves and our children. Today a light bulb went on for me - I am going to try and share a few more thoughts and photos on my personal blog so that, when I am gone, future generations will be able to read a little about their Gummy.
Thanks for this Jill. You've certainly spurred me on to finally do this. It's something I've been thinking about for some time now, and for exactly the same reasons you've given.
It will be for future generations and others who may choose to read it now are warned that they may find it quite boring... :-)
I've been trying to do this. As family historians our job doesn't end with the dead relatives !
We don't mind writing about our ancestors but I find it difficult to write about myself. Well for a change this week I tried and mentioned you in my post as the inspiration.
I agree Jill. This was one of two reasons I wrote a blog recently on our family trip to Hawaii, for our children and their children to read when we are no longer around.
The other reason is so I can remember, because it is so easy to forget!
