C: How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?
JANEANE: I’ve been blogging for about three years. I got started in blogging because my friend and I had a competition to read the bible (we’re such good Christians that we can’t just read the bible to read the bible…we had to read the bible on a bet [Laughter]). The deal was that whoever read the most at the end of the competition, would get $90 of yarn. I am so competitive, it’s ridiculous, and I knit like a maniac! So I ended up winning the competition. We were able to keep track of who won because my friend suggested that we blog about it. So we started writing blogs about what we were reading in the bible every day. That’s how I started blogging. I just started taking it seriously within the last eight months, and now blog every day.
Some of the women and I in SOSM are launching a website in which we will showcase some of the writing of the different women in the group. And I’ll continue to write for my own blog so I can see that grow and develop. I’m such a blogging nut that all of my children have blogs! They’re all different and they write when they feel like it. Those blogs are: Black Girl, Brown Sugar (by Euphoria Davis, age 16), Peyton’s Game Spot (by Peyton Davis, age 9), Zahirah: The Bright and Shining One (by Zahirah Davis, age 5), The Famous Camille (by Camille Davis, age 5).
