Robin M. to Martin Kelley, March 11, 2005
"I now understand more fully why some Friends--I've heard it most recently from Conservative Friends last week--preface what they say with the word, "Perhaps," as in: "Perhaps I am too much of a Luddite to have a blog of my own..." smile
Liz Opp to Robin M., August 7, 2005
Yeah, right. Little did I know. From love at first sight to a committed relationship in only five months, that's my journey with the Quaker blogosphere.
A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking of forwarding a post from Rob at Consider the Lilies to a Friend in my Meeting when I stopped to consider whether this was too much like forwarding chain mail and jokes via email. I thought, what I really ought to do is write why I think this is important and just quote from the post. I heard the voice in my head say, "It's like Rob saith this and Liz saith that, but what canst thou say? That's what important to your friends."
And then I knew it. I'd found a name for the blog I was going to write. Oh, I resisted. Last year, I refused to get my son's school's newsletter online because "I'd never read anything like that on the computer." -- I like paper. And books and holding it while I'm sitting by the beach waiting while my three year old takes a nap. Will I have to get all high tech now? Buy a palmtop/digital camera/cellphone/MP3 player? I don't think so. I still wrote this out longhand to start with.
Welcome to a relatively low tech, Conservative leaning, Green, feminist sort of Quaker blog. With lots of references to children and the occasional pie recipe. Published on Mondays, mostly.
Edit: (More info on what is a Luddite here)
