Just another UMW Blogs weblog



I have decided that my story will be an analysis of the my mother’s life before I was born. I will write in my blog weekly with updates. I will interview some of her old friends (Facebook makes this really easy), search for pictures from her childhood, and get a autobiographical sense of what her life was through her own eyes.

I have some various people (friends and family — fortunately my mother is 1 of 7 kids) from my mother’s past life lined up on Facebook that I plan on interviewing via skype or phone to get an inside scoop. I’m embarrassing, fun, and interesting stories.

    This will be very cool if you do it right. Keep your stories straight to the point and avoid rambling on, maybe add in a twist of humor here and there.

    I really like this idea too. I’m sure there is a lot that you’ll be surprised to find out about your mother, good and bad. I agree with Chris just, try and stick to the point because 38 years is a lot to cover, there’s no need for excess fluff. Good luck!

    I too like the idea, no I want a bit of a project outline, how are you going to do this? Who are you going to interview? What are you looking to learn? Etc.
