I’m starting this blog for a few reasons and I think this first post is the place to lay this out.
First and foremost I want to learn more about the Jersey shore’s history. One way to do so is the old, well worn routine of – research, read and write. Getting the first two in place has always been easy for me. The third one is the trick. Maybe a blog will help?
I think most places are neat but I spent a lot of time at the Jersey shore when I was growing up. So to me, it’s special. I also think you will find some interesting characters where ever you go. Provided you look. I will also be looking around to find out more of the past by asking those here in the present. This is my second reason for the blog. It will be nice to try and find others that know what they know – and that I don’t – and try to get them to share it with us. I don’t know how much time I will have to try and meet this goal. We will see.
My final reason is to try to have some fun while I learn. I have no idea what a good posting rate will be, if I will write regularly or not, how many people will even care…..but it will be whatever works. I’m definitely not going to stress about getting things done here if there is too much going on elsewhere. I am going to give it a go though.
Let’s see what happens!
