Today’s Blog Exercise from Lorelle on WordPress is to write about someone who changed your life. Lorelle herself shared some tidbits about her grandfather.
I thought I’d write about my grandfather. I wrote an essay about him six years ago when I was taking a writing class called “Writing from the Heart.” Or I could write a bit more about my father, copying a post from my previous blog. But that would just be cutting and pasting previous work, neither of which would flex my blogging muscles very much.
I’ve been following Lorelle on WordPress off and on for many, many years—so far back, she was still living in Israel and was using Rubric, one of the first standard WordPress.com themes (or was it Regulus?); back when WordPress.com didn’t have the option to customize themes and had only a million or so blogs—perhaps even fewer.
