Two Years Ago Today
Two years ago today I began this blog by posting this postcard photo. My intention at the time was to just drum up some attention for a simple picture book I was having published to benefit the Menasha Historical Society. But it soon became apparent that this blog was something more than a vehicle for publicity. Yes, it served its purpose, but even after the initial interest for the book had faded, you came back again and again.
Considering that I administer this all from my home in South Carolina, it can be challenging at times. But because of the internet and email and Facebook, I am able to do this. I truly believe that in no other era could I be as successful at this as I am today.
Many of you have told me how much you gain from this blog, but in reality, I am the true winner. Your comments, emails, and Facebook posts have helped to fuel my imagination and contribute ideas while I add to this blog each week. Thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and friendship.
