I went to my old blog to see if and what I blogged about during and after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast two years ago. I was astonished at just how much I posted! My blogging style is, like, so different today.
Of course, I made a big linkfest of the best that was written on blogs at the time, a useful reminder of some of the details if you are looking for inspiration for your own posts:
But, check this torrent of posting! I can't believe I did it! Some are one-liners with links, some are long quotes from others, some are provocative and sharp-tongued thoughts of my own, and a couple are pictorial:
