If you have looked at the list of favorite blogs to the left of your screen, you may have seen the blog Three Beautiful Things. It is written by a British lady named Clare who posts every day. Each post consists of three beautiful things she has seen that day. Most of the time, these things are quite simple - for example, one recent post mentioned a cup of tea her father made for her. I've been thinking a lot recently about creating a new blog where I write my own 3BT. Ideally it would consist of photos, but realistically, I know that probably won't happen. I bet I could post pictures once a week, though. Maybe on Sunday? I'd like to have a reason to get outside more, to use my camera more, to DO more each day.

But would people read it? Clare does a great job with her blog, I can't imagine anyone wants to read a similar blog. I guess I'm plagued by indecision. What do you think? Would blogging three beautiful things from Maine each day interest you? What about the photo idea?


PS As promised, I will post pictures of the freak snow storm tonight.

Go for it, Amelia. When I first saw Clare's 3BTs blog and saw many spin-offs-many people had their own blogs.

Clare has made it an art-to see a beautiful thing and utilizes her describing skills to bring her words to life. She's good.

I like having my own "3BTs" blog. To me, it's more of an open-book diary. I can look back and remember the things that happened. Admittedly, some times I don't go anywhere or do anything out of the norm and pretty much repeat things. I do enjoy it. If I miss a day or two, I just post them with the date on the top and post them all separately.

It's up to you. Even if you can't post every day, you can still make a weekly list or something. I've seen all kinds.
