I’ve been blogging since May 2006. These two bloggers also started blogging in May 2006. This may be as close as I’ll ever come to belonging to a tribe — bloggers who began blogging in May 2006. I hope to find more of my tribe as time goes on.
I discovered this red-haired mother of four through Bayou Woman. Pioneer Woman channels Lucille Ball, Viviene Leigh, and Ethel Merman in her daily blog from a ranch somewhere in the American West. She’s been posting almost daily for six years, no small feat when you consider she has four children under age six. At some point along the way, Pioneer Woman’s blog became heavily monetized.
This Florida newspaper photographer named Jeaux quits his job and takes up blogging, a perfect little pastime for retirees. With sentences such as the one in Great Sentence #1 below, this blogger has me looking forward to spending more time there. I discovered his blog through Shrinky’s Shrink-Wrapped Scream.
In the case of all these bloggers, their pictures and their words are what they make to share with others, because making things is what God does and therefore what we should be doing, according to this guy named Chris whom Jeaux discovered at the beach one day. Chris’s message is profound, and this whole thing feels staged. Jeaux tried his hand at three or four little moviettes before realizing he has no talent for moviemaking, but he still has a great eye for stills.
