After reading my post about root cellaring in our early days up here in Minnesota, my friend and reader Jenyfer commented that it would be wise to "save" such blog posts somewhere besides within my blog on the Internet. This is a wise suggestion coming from a gal who is currently having terrible-awful-horrible-bad problems with her own blog and is very uneasy about the possibility of losing the information she's written there over the years.
A couple of years ago, because I am so NOT versed in the mysterious workings of computers and, therefore, a little nervous about the whole concept, I asked my computer-savvy daughter how I could obtain a hard copy of my blog posts.
This is what she gave me for Christmas that year. It's a lovely, hard-bound book of my blog posts, including all pictures, that she had printed up.
To sit of an evening with this book in hand, and look back over what I wrote in 2008 is so much more satisfying than scrolling back through my blog entries on the computer.
Not that my blog posts are anything that will live on into the future as great works of literature, but someday these books will be handed down to my daughter as a record of these particular years in my life.
Dear daughter got me started on the collection of these books of my posts and I plan on keeping them up. I seem to be behind on that little project right now, but within the next couple of months I hope I can get caught up on it.
