Talking to some blogging friends at church last Sunday morning - I raised that I felt that there needed to be a goal for a blog. Some are putting theological positions, some are sharing their lives, some are expressing a view on any and everything.
The goal of this blog - and our kid's ones - is much more modest. It is to motivate each of us to do a diary in the three months of long service leave - September to December.
I also have the goal with the kid's ones of developing their writing ability.
That's why I am not fussed if these blogs breaks some genre conventions - because it's more to motivate us to do a diary for ourselves - than anything else.
