What's this blogging business?

What is a blog? A blog is an online journal open for public viewing, a virtual room where only a fool would be inclined to share the secrets of his heart with the rest of the world.
"Blog" stands for "Web log,"-- slurred together it becomes blog. (A ship's log might be called a "Plog," and a captain's log a "Clog.")

Why a blog?:

Blogs are useful for:

Winning friends – The internet community has truly brought our world together, and blogging gives others the opportunity to share in our lives. It's a great tool to use to promote our passions, and our interests.

Making enemies – Unfortunately, most of our thoughts and comments really aren't fit to be shared. If you're mad at your husband, don't spout about it for the world to see. This is contrary to scripture and violates common sense. Private event really are best kept private.

Teaching – Blogs that offer knowledgeable information and advice have become like an online classroom. While it may be enticing to read about some stranger in California who spent the day surfing, my favorite blogs are the ones that draw from the author's experience to offer insight and advice.

This blog will share with you thoughts about the world colored with my point of view. Perhaps, as the blog matures it will develop to fulfill a particular niche, but until that time…Welcome! To the Wit and Wisdom of Janice LaQuiere.
