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.

High Desert Blogging is a blog about individuals, businesses, opportunities, places, High Desert gardening, photography, antique shopping, thrift shopping, things to do, and more about the High Desert and near the High Desert. High Desert Blogging is a service for Victor Valley communities of and near Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley, Lucerne Valley, Adelanto, and Phelan.

For example, did you know that the High Desert branch of the California Writers Club (CWC) meets at the library in Apple Valley once a month? That is a fast-growing group. Today one of their members, Holly La Pat (also known as Sierra Donovan) held a workshop on romance writing at Hesperia Library. CWC is a non-profit organization with numerous critique groups available. For more information, check out the group’s website.
