t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
The Blogger World
If pbskids.org had a blog, ellery and callista would be the number one posters I'm sure. Of course I have to teach them to type first! I had no idea of the community of bloggers on the web. My friends have some beautiful sites devoted to their families and I love checking up on all of them. However I am just beginning to delve into the networks of mothers and parents and vegetarians etc. I'm excited about the networking potential. I have always loved researching on the internet before I buy everything, but the whole blogging world adds a new and great twist on this. It is an instant forum for discussion. I think we are all more connected. But that does pose an interesting question, because we are all sitting alone at our computers! Hmmm.
