While writing for a blog like this is ultimately enjoyable, it requires some effort and time. Trying to ensure accurate facts, balanced with humour, and striving to provoke thought, while still providing an interesting read, is challenging. We often discuss what we want this blog to be. What we want it to reflect, and say about us.
Our goals are manyfold. We write for personal achievement and satisfaction. We write to document that which we know, and that which we’ve learned. We write to preserve memories. Not just our own, but of those people and places we’ve experienced, who and which will someday no longer be.
‘Course, a few laughs never hurt anyone either. We may be a few years on from the days of coloured hair (lots of coloured hair), but we remember how to laugh and have fun. It just hurts a little later into the next day than it used to, that’s all. We write about fun, to share it with you.
Researching data for our postings is as educationally rewarding for us as we hope it is for you. We make every effort to provide the most accurate information possible, cross-checked from as many reliable sources as are available to us. Of course, the most reliable data is that provided by personal experiences. However, with limited resources, that’s not always forthcoming.
Web logging is many things to many people, but the common denominator seems to be a desire to share with other like-minded people. So, we have reached 1,000 hits from an indeterminable number of readers. We know we have seven followers, some from across town, and some from as far away as England and Thailand. Our question is :
Our relationship is symbiotic. We write because you read. You read because ____________ ?
We just lit a bonfire on the beach, and you came and sat down with us. You could’ve stood up and walked away, but you didn’t. On this celebratory occasion, will you take a moment to leave a comment telling us why ? We enjoy your company, it’s always our pleasure.
