I am a pioneer. I’m basically the first person to ever start a blog. The first one. Here I am blazing the trails for other would-be bloggers (one who blogs. A little nickname I came up with. Double pioneer points awarded to me.) I can’t even believe how unique and original I am.
Hey, speaking of pioneers, what if they had been able to post on Facebook back then? I’ll bet their status updates would have been really good:
Sarah Elizabeth: Butter churned- CHECK. 2 loads of laundry scrubbed in the creek- CHECK. Built a new wall in our cabin- CHECK. Kettle of stew already on the fire for supper- CHECK. 2 cougars shot for trying to eat our cow- CHECK. T’was a productive morn!
Emma Catherine: The delivery of our child is upon us!! Number 11 on the way! I am going natural (since that’s the only option…) but I wanted you to know that I am doing an at-homestead river birth. I am well. I have not even had to bite on any pieces of bark yet.
Charles Joseph: I am on my way to chop logs. My current record is 250 logs, but I am hoping to max out at 255 logs this afternoon. Yesterday was leg day. (I got a new leg yesterday.)
Laura Jane: Young Josiah can already plow the field all by himself and he’s only 37 months. Proud ma over yonder!
Harriet Ann: I drew 5 pictures from different angles of the freshly-made pie I just pulled from the oven. I posted them on the Town Hall wall if anyone is interested. You may trace one if you’d like to re-post in your own home.
William John: Huzzah! I am in utter bewilderment that that just occurred!!
Mary Sue: My neighbor gives her children honey, raspberries and melon to eat. I do not think that is right; that is quite the excess of sugar. I will be sure to inform everyone how I feel on the subject.
