Our family went to Guatemala in September, we spent about a month out there with our family, it was a great trip. Now I’m trying to play catch up and preserve our adventure in our family blog. It almost feels like a part-time job; editing pictures, laying the format and flow, and then writing the post.
Each post I try to limit to about 300 words, but it seems like I can’t put everything in such a limited word count. For most I’m close to 1,000 words, and the last one was 1,200 words. And it’s not that I sit down to write so much, is just that I want to convey the feeling and preserve the memories.
I’m very grateful that I have the medium to remember what we did and share it with others. I still get excited about doing it, and I like it so it is not a burden, I just look back and I’m amazed. I really hope that someone finds as much value to what I’m doing, but if not I am fine with just how rewarding it is to remember.
I started with the desire to write 15 posts of our adventures in Guatemala, it looks more that I’m going to write 11, and I just have 3 more posts to write; meanwhile I’m behind on the things we are doing, so it’s a catch up game. Hopefully I’ll have some quiet time to finish, yeah right ::SIGH::
