I’d love to know to what extent blogging runs in families. I know about 3 pairs of sisters who blog, 3 mothers and sons; 2 mothers and daughters and I think that’s it.
Maybe it’s just that I’m not moving in the right circles to find the families, or maybe I know them individually and haven’t put one and one or two and two together ( that always reminds of the card game ‘Fish in the Pond.’ Do you remember it? )
There is the little matter that there can be a sense that there is only room for one blogger in a family ~ a bit like one photographer.
I think my late mother would probably have got into blogging if it had been around in her day. She wrote a lot for publication and broadcasting and loved being part of a ‘community of writers.’ I often think of how I used to hear her tapping away at her typewriter when I’d come in from school. Those were the days of messy typewriter ribbons, carbon paper and fiddly little things to help you erase a mistake at the bottom of a page to save you having to re-type the whole page again.
I can’t quite visualise son, H, getting into blogging. On the other hand, he would probably say that he’s already into it as more often than not we discuss posts before I post them and he often seems to pop his head around the door when he sees me playing around with photographs.
Of course, there may well be lots of families who have ‘private’ blogs for building family trees and the like. As yet, I’ve never met any.
Are any other members of your family involved either directly or indirectly in blogging? How does it work out for you?
