"Have you thought about writing your family history, but found yourself stuck from the start? Writing a family narrative can be a daunting task, but Karen Jones Gowen found a way to bring her mother's story to life." (Homespun Magazine)

Happy Birthday to my Quiet Blog

It was a year ago that I began this blog as an experiment. Well, not exactly a year. My first post was actually on March 31. I wanted to see what would happen if I posted about subjects that interested me-- memoir, personal and family history, family, nature, and of course myself hehe-- without doing anything else to get followers or views. No tricks or gimmicks-- just plain ol' everyday writing on the blog.

It's been fun because it's no pressure blogging. I'm not really trying to do anything special or even have a platform--it's simply a forum for random posting. Because I'm a compulsive writer who will write anywhere, anytime on any subject. Ask my kids who have carried dozens of boxes of massive journals from house to house.

Happy birthday to my quiet blog. Many thanks to those who follow me here and take the time to read and comment on my posts. I appreciate it so much!


  1. Happy birthday, blog. :-) That's the best thing about blogging. We can write about the things that we want to write about without any pressure. Keep on writing and enjoy.

  2. Happy Birthday or Blogiversary. I love your attitude about blogging, as I feel too many try to be competitive. Looking forward to another year of reading your posts.

  6. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I think I need cake LOL. Just noticing how "quiet" is a recurring theme of my posts here lately. Could it be possible that I am craving some peace and quiet in my daily routine right now?


I don't post very often, but if you leave a comment I'll know someone is out there reading. And then I will post more! Bwa ha ha!
