Capturing the Summer
Capturing memories is something that has consumed society for ages. Journals, newspapers, photographs, memoirs, videos... these are all great ways to pass on traditions as well as important family information that should not be forgotten. Scrapbooking was a unique way of capturing a moment in time. You would take typical memorabilia like photos, newspaper clippings, and even artwork and compile it all together. Most families turned to this option when new babies arrived. As their arsenal of photographs and trinkets got larger, they would keep filling up pages and keep the book as a keepsake. Journals are another favorite; portable and convenient, it was easy to pull out a notebook and start logging daily adventures.
Today, it seems more popular to take those memories to the internet rather than to a book. How many family members or friends do you have that live far away yet you still keep in touch with them through blogging, microblogging or email? For me, the internet has become the missing link in keeping my family connected. We're able to instantly share pictures, videos and say a quick “hello". Blogging is ubiquitous and will probably continue to grow and advance with time.
What's great is people don't just stop at blogging about their daily lives; they go on to blog about their likes and dislikes and ultimately review the business that they encounter on a daily basis. We have found Lou Malnati's pizza in so many blogs that we've lost count! It's wonderful to hear someone else describe their experience at one of our restaurants. What's even better are the pictures that tend to get posted - like they say, a picture speaks a thousand words.
How have you been logging your summer adventures? Have you taken it to the internet or have you resorted to a good, old-fashioned journal? We, as you can see, have taken our adventures to the internet. But that's not to say we don't have a few old journals or scrapbooks around here somewhere filled with memories waiting to be shared and relived.
