Pondering with a Purpose

This Week's prompt is:  Blog Hops
  Do you participate in blog hops? Or better yet...why did you start your blog... was it to particpate in other people's hops? 
Obviously, I participate in blog hops because here I am writing this, but along with this hop, I love to join in several others. Monday, I hop along with Heather on Meet Me on Monday, then on Wednesday I join Joyce for Wednesday HodgepodgeCome Thursday you will find me giving my thoughts on Pondering with a Purpose hosted by Brenda, and lastly on Friday I participate in Rachael's Friday's Favorite Things where I try to capture highlights of the week in photos, and I also fill in the blanks on Follow Friday hosted by Hilary.  I love the sharing that blog hops promote.  I am able to express my thoughts, and see how others think about the same topics.  Often, I gain perspective and another point of view.
The rest of the week, my blog is generally filled with stories of growing up in the Wild West many years ago.  I love relating the stories of "the olden days".  I started to blog to chronicle the change in my life once I retired, but because of many questions from friends and family it has morphed into what it is today.  Along the way I discovered blog hops and look forward to each one of them.


  1. As you know, I love Wednesday Hodgepodge, but maybe I will try some of the other ones you mentioned, as well! Hope you have a wonderful day, Marti!

  2. One of these days I will have to participate in some of these blog hops. I have never done that. It does look like fun. xo Diana

  3. I do the Wednesday Hodgepodge but not the others. I get the feeling that if I do, those blog hops dictate what I blog about and I don't like that feeling. I love to visit others however and see what is up with them. Go figure!

  4. I love the responses you got... and thank you for hopping along with me this week.
    Happy Pondering!

  5. Hi,
    I haven't done the blog hops buy maybe one day. I seem to spend far more time on the computer than I mean to. It is rather addictive isn't it?
    I will be back this week. Can't wait to hear about the old days..LOVE it!
