Team Fencepost Request – Interview 4

Happy Saturday, Team Fencepost!

Time for interview question #4.

Who inspired you to blog?

I know you didn’t just wake up one day and decide to design and maintain a blog.

Am I right?

I know I didn’t.

When I first heard of blogs, I thought they were a waste of time.

Okay, you can smack me now!

I thought they were all about weight loss and exersize and news and….well you get the drift.

Then one day while researching my genealogy, I ran across a blog from my home state, in an area very familiar to me.

I clicked on page after page after page… I was addicted.

She wrote of things and places I was familiar with. And I got to thinking maybe I could do this too.

That blog was Chickens In The Road, the author was Suzanne Mcminn.

From there I found Kasey and her midwestern flair had me looking through a camera lens in a different way.

Then on to Tipper. Reading her blog was almost like looking into a mirror of my own life.

Then, The Pioneer Woman. Her life on the prairie was different and interesting, but the same in other ways.

I could go on and on with the various blogs. Each one with something different, something inspirational and something familiar.

So many blogs, with such diversity and all with amazing pictures and narrations and written straight from the heart of each author.

For several months I lurked in the shadows and absorbed information, then researched until I eventually landed here on Twisted Fencepost.

I’d like to tell you that one person could take the credit for inspiring me. But I cannot.

In all honesty, you could say it is that diversity that inspires the writing here on Twisted Fencepost.

Now, I’ve told you that it was more than one author who inspired the birth of this blog.

You tell me….
