Blogs are a wonderful innovation. They have truly altered online networking, communication, and websites.
Like many bloggers, I have ‘surfed’ blogger to check out the other blogs.
There are a number of blogs devote to families. Parents often post pictures and general ramblings about their growing kids so that friends and family from far away can keep in touch.
To set up a family blog, I would suggest going with blogger. You can limit who can see it and you can allow every family member author rights meaning, they can post pictures etc.
Recently, I attempted to get a family blog going for my husband’s family.
They are spread all over the world and now that everyone is getting older, I thought that it would be an excellent way to keep in touch.
For many families, it would have worked well.
For my husband’s family, it was not so successful. Maybe it’s because they are too old to learn something new. Maybe they just don’t care what we are doing.
I’m not upset. I was doing it for them and if they didn’t want it, it’s not my problem.
I would recommend that you attempt putting together a family blog.
It’s a wonderful idea.
