on death

I just read about a fellow book reader who died recently. I did not know her but she was one of my fellow "challenge" readers. I belong to a notable books challenge blog, in which I challenge myself to read books from several notable books lists and then review them in the blog.

There is much discussion about her and how to remember her. Suggestions to plant trees, to donate to the library she frequented, to continue her blogs.

I have long wondered what happens to this journal when I die? It is only a lifetime membership, after all! Does that mean it dies when I do? I assume that it does. I will be looking at the different ways I can copy it to another blog format - after all, my words are precious and not to be left lightly behind.

Should we create trusts, offering our blogs to others when we die? Or just let them fade away, quickly or slowly?

Thank you for your nice comments! I do not think you have commented here before.

I have read a bit that my grandmother wrote. She wrote some stories, some poetry. I didn't read it until long after she died and I am not sure I would have been open enough to discuss it when she was alive, as I was younger and callow and all that then.

Some of what she wrote has made me think about her very differently, to want to know more. So yes, i would love it if she left more behind. I am lucky she did as much as she did.

I'll find a way to KEEP THE BLOG ALIVE!
