When Mom was the web master for the Our Echo site, I posted a number of my childhood memories to that site. It pleased me to win one of the monthly writing contests there with my story Remembering My Grandparents’ Farm.
Browse around my list of stories there and you’ll find more from my childhood.
Over the past five years, I’ve posted some topics to Squidoo, so you can read about my Memories of the Five and Dime Store.
More recently I’ve posted memories to the Bubblews site. It’s a combination social site/writing site and many use it as an online journal. Here’s a list of the short posts about my childhood:
►I Was a Gypsy Once
►Remember Grandma’s Kitchen
►Second Hand Christmas Tree
►Shirley Temple Wannabe
►My Baby Picture
►Teen Fashion Fantasies
►A Long Ago Christmas
►Home Churned Butter
If you want to put your own memories online, I have a page explaining about writing for Our Echo. You can also self-publish your memories using the Blurb website. Here’s my tutorial on that. It makes a wonderful gift for your children or grandchildren.
