“Girls, do you think everyone will be groaning because we've created yet another blog?” I ask my daughters.
“Everyone will sigh and say, ‘Oh no! Another new blog. More posts to read. More comments to write. Just what we needed!” says Imogen.
“Just what we didn’t need!” corrects Gemma-Rose.
But I have an idea. “I’ll write a post and reassure everyone that this is not a normal blog. I’ll tell everyone that this is a blog without all the usual commitments.”
So that’s what I’m doing.
Dear readers, if you’d like to follow or subscribe to our Mother, Daughters, Sisters blog, we’d love to share our new adventure with you. But don’t feel you have to read all our posts all the time.
And if you do hop over to see what’s happening around here, you can creep in and creep out without leaving a single footprint (or word). It’s fine with us. Though of course we shall smile (very widely) if we do see a comment.
Or if you want a quick way to say, “I liked that post” or “That was funny!”, you could click on one of the reaction boxes at the end of the post (if I can get them to work). I don’t think I’ll bother with a ‘dislike’ reaction. Just think if everyone clicked onto that. We might get discouraged.
Or maybe I could be very clever and install a ‘like’ button connected to Facebook. That’s always assuming we post anything that deserves a ‘like’.
Does that sound okay with you?
“What if no one reads our posts?” asks Sophie.
“We always have each other.”
That’s the advantage in sharing a blog with a number of people. It’ll never get lonely around here.
“Okay, who’s writing the next post?" I ask. "I’ve written two in a row."
The girls look at each other. Imogen? Charlotte? Sophie? Gemma-Rose? Who is up next? Could it be Felicity? (I wonder if she received my invitation to be a blog author.)
Perhaps you'd like to come back later to find out who wrote post number 3.
And if you don't... that's okay. No pressure!
Here's something else that's not normal. A dog wearing glasses?
