Have you ever found a blog you just didn't want to leave? Maybe just in case it wouldn't be there the next time you tried to go to it? Or perhaps there was so much of interest that you just couldn't tear yourself away? Or maybe the photographs were so fabulous that you just wanted to keep looking?
I could hardly tear myself away from Sepia Saturday to write this post. But I like it so much that I wanted to share it. Every Saturday there is one post on the blog, but there are links to others who also post an image and a story from their family history at their own blogs. It's almost like a weekly carnival, but simpler.
This is what the bloggers of Sepia Saturday say about the blog:
"Launched by Alan Burnett and Kat Mortensen in 2009, Sepia Saturday provides bloggers with an opportunity to share their history through the medium of photographs. Historical photographs of any age or kind (they don't have to be sepia) become the launchpad for explorations of family history, local history and social history in fact or fiction, poetry or prose, words or further images. If you want to play along, all we ask is that you sign up to the weekly Linky List, that you try to visit as many of the other participants as possible, and that you have fun."
And fun it is! Alan usually posts a photo of his own and then highlights another blogger's photo and post. For anyone who likes to look at old photographs and read about them, this is a great blog. Go take a look. Join in if you feel like it. You can do it easily by adding a link to your post in the little box at the end of the most recent post.
I'm too late to participate this week, but I plan to post in upcoming weeks.
Thank you, Alan and Kat, for this great blog.
