Why not blog?

Should I blog? I ask my daughter, as I am driving her to wherever I am always driving her. "Sure", she says. What do I blog about? "Bitch and moan about your children", she replies. "Wait, your cooking so that I can get the recipes when I go to college", she adds.

I ask my sister the same question. She says a blog about Asian plants, The trials and adventures of raising teenagers or letters to my newly born nephew, her son. It would seem my love ones have an ulterior motive or two!

Why not blog? I have already been through so many changes in my lifetime that I forgotten what it was like before..... When measurements were gantang and chupak to pounds and ounces to the grams and kilograms. From when I did not know what was a floppy drive to TB hard drives that I can hold in my hand- so unimaginable, when I stood in the cold computer room surrounded by mega computers.
Moving to and living in a country, a world apart from my birth place.

For months now I have wondered about the people who blog. Who are they, where do they find so much time to blog let alone live! Why do they blog? How difficult is it? Just recently my lovely niece showed me her blog The Silver Mandoline, about her culinary adventures. I had been taking pictures of my cooking this past year with an aim of creating a digital scrapbook. It started me thinking......

Never one to let technology leave me too far behind. Always one to say I can do it too (hopefully I don't fall flat on my face). To better understand the world my children live in, I now embrace, albeit hesitantly blogging.
