About Blogging

What is a blog? That is the question I often hear when I tell people I’m a blogger. Simply put, a blog is the combination of two words: web and log. Put those two together, and you get blog. A blog is like a journal or diary. There are different types of blogs. There are casual blogs as a hobby, business blogs for money, and in-between blogs that may be for business purposes but written in a casual manner. Pick any subject, and there is probably a blog about it.

Everyone has a strength, a hobby, or just in plain simple terms, something he or she likes to do. I like to blog because I like to meet people, and I like to read about their fascinating stories. Every person has a story. I enjoy interviewing people because I learn. There are no two stories alike. In fact,  I wrote the soon-to-be-released book, Phantom Seven which is a personal history book, a collection of WWII memoirs about seven men. What’s funny is two of the men can tell about the same thing that happened yet tell two different stories. Why is that? I guess it’s because just like there are no two stories alike, no two people think exactly alike. Maybe that’s why I find it so fascinating to learn the history and experiences of people.

Blogging News

It’s feeling more like summer, a busy time for weddings. I’d like to invite you over to Southwest Cottage Designs where I blog about southwestern cottage living. This month I’m blogging about a wedding series that includes a wedding ring quilt giveaway. Go by and enter to win the quilt. There are three ways to enter:

  1. Enter your ideas on how to decorate a country outside wedding
  2. Follow Southwest Cottage Designs blog
  3. Make a donation that goes toward the wedding ring quilt expense and/or the bride’s and groom’s mission trip

This pretty vintage quilt was purchased at Carriage House Antiques. It is old but has been well taken care of.

Wedding Ring Giveaway Quilt

What have you planned for the fathers in your family for Father’s Day? Last weekend my husband and I went by Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures and Antique Station on Hwy. 18. Incidentally, these are not just antiques for ladies. We saw several gentlemen browsing, too. If you’re looking for a unique antique perfect for your man, visit these fun shops. Sunday we went by Carriage House (had to pay on the quilt layaway). My other half found an old brass toilet paper holder, perfect for our little high desert cottage cabin. Now if you’re wondering what kind of things the gentlemen might look at in antique shops, look at these photos:

If you see any antique items in the slideshow you’d like to have for a Father’s Day gift, take some time to go antique shopping this week. Tell them Angi from High Desert Blogging sent you.

In regard to the latest High Desert Blogging news, I’ll be teaching a blogging workshop soon in the High Desert. The workshop will include information on setting up a blog, how to blog, how to connect with other bloggers and how to build traffic to your blog. If you are interested in attending, contact me for the details.

Come back soon for another visit to High Desert Blogging. Enjoy your summer, and plan some fun family time in your busy schedule.
