Bonding while Blogging

More often than not, growing up in a nuclear family makes us forget the concept and importance of family relationships. Spending an afternoon lunch with a sibling has become uncommon in today’s jet set world of change. In fact, even friendships no longer last more than a couple of years. This is because we move around too fast and too often to maintain genuine friendships. Ironic is that, even when we live in a fast-paced environment there are more ways to maintain contact with friends and family.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Internet provides endless possibilities in bridging the gap of geography among distant family members. Starting up a blog with the whole family can maintain closeness among its members. In fact, blogging with the whole family is an awesome method of keeping in contact with each other. Try to consider a family project blog on political views or family history blog where all the members can contribute with photographs and memories. Everyone will receive a notification and everyone has access in that way no one is burdened to keep up.
