My mom is blogging!

When my mother moved into her apartment we gave her our old computer, which still works quite well. We got her hooked up to Comcast so she has internet access.

She is still learning so hasn't done a lot with it so far. However, the other day when I was there, she told me she wanted to write a "column" about grammar, a subject she has always cared about very much. I told her it wouldn't be a column, but a blog!

I told her about blogging and how she could write about her pet grammatical peeves, and she could publish the articles on the internet and people from all over the world could read them. She liked that idea so I started up a blog for her. She has now posted her first blog entry. It's dated Sunday because I was just showing her how to publish when I was there Sunday but she wrote it today.

So, please stop by my mother's blog: Marge's Words to the Wise. If you have a chance to comment please do, she'll love to hear from you!

Thanks Ruth, I'm sure she'd love to hear from you. My mother will be excited to be in touch with someone from England. She loves England and has been there several times. She used to have a penpal from Scotland who later lived in London. (She corresponded with her since age 14 until her friend got Alzheimer's and stopped writing. We visited her several times while we were visiting England).

Myspace, thanks, will check out your blog! BTW, I'm 53 - my Mom is 88!!! (This means I am your mom's age! LOL!)
