My son and d-i-l each have a blog. Both are wonderful writers--witty and smart. Beatka writes kind of like I do, in a folksy way, like talking to you over coffee. Rob, on the other hand, writes a wry and acerbic blog that is more like a newspaper column. I don't agree with his politics (very often). But I love his writing and his humor.
The only reason I haven't given out his blog address to all my family and friends is that I know some people will be offended. But I also know that most people will enjoy his writing, even though they won't agree with some of it.
Beata's blog is worth reading. She is from Poland, by way of Denmark and Okinawa, and is getting ready to move to the states with Rob for the first time. She's on an adventure and it's fun to share that with her.
Rob's blog is also worth reading. I'm thinking about posting his url here soon. My blog (for unknown reasons) gets quite a few hits every day. Posting his site would drive more traffic there, and would allow his writing to be seen by more people. I need to bite the bullet and just do it.
But not yet.
