People often ask me ".......but why do you blog?" like I was doing some strange and useless thing that was a complete waste of time like, you know, wallpapering the railings of Stephens Green every Sunday with my dirty laundry and expecting to sell it as art. The reasons I blog are many fold but here are a few.
I blog because my brother and sisters live far away from me. My brother lives with is family in England and I have one sister living in Australia who misses my kids and another sister living on the other side of Ireland in Limerick with her family. It's a great communication tool for keeping track of each other and my blog also allows me to showcase my paintings which I have linked to on this blog.
My reason for writing on this topic is because of comments and links to my site saying that posting photos of my children is wrong. These are usually written by people who selfishly decorate their own posts with other peoples photos without crediting the rightful owner.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words and so to those of you who have commented or linked to me on this subject here's a special photo from my own album just for you.
