If My Mom Were A Blogger

Today’s post is linked up to Mama Kat’s Writers’ Workshop. After reading and commenting on my post, stop by Mama Kat’s site and check out some other writers’ work!Mama’s Losin’ It

If my mom were a blogger she would be able to convince you that romance novels don’t need overt sex. She always preferred Regency novels that led the reader to the brink but never crossed over. Sorry, Mom, but I just couldn’t resist the photo.

If my mom were a blogger she would be writing about her beloved Ohio State and its sports teams — and also the Cincinnati Reds. She used to let me stay home from school on opening day to watch the game on television with her (but don’t tell anyone).

If my mom were a blogger she would have had to fight with my dad to get computer time. Once he discovered the magic of the internet, there was no chance for her.

If my mom were a blogger, there would be a healthy competition with the blogs of her daughter and her granddaughter. She is so full of wisdom with a pinch of spice that there would probably be little chance for Jessie or me to win. 🙂 But she would be really proud of both of us (and she still is).

If my mom were a blogger, it would probably have led to a book. Before she got sick, she had everything it takes to publish. I wish that she had gotten around to writing the novel about our immigrant family that she always intended to write.

If my mom were a blogger, I would devour every single word she wrote as if it might be her last.

    I like this.

    1. My dad wrote genealogy books and when he discovered he could access his work at libraries via their search engines, he was in seventh heaven. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is so sweet! We chose the same prompt today, and I almost closed my post today along the lines of yours: I would have treasured my mom’s blog, had she written one.

  4. Mr. V always says that when Grandma has something to say, it is definitely worth listening to. And is usually hilarious. He loves her so much, one of his most redeeming qualities. 😉 Enough that he let me name our daughter after her.
