How to make a blog in five minutes

12 years 3 months ago #13518 by Marcus
(Peggy posting) Our daughter, Amanda, started a blog for Marcus, her father, to share with friends and family, and even strangers, his journey/saga through bladder cancer. I know I've seen your name, Zachary, on prior visits to the site. You are spot on when you say writing can be healing - we've found it provides much comfort to Marcus AND us as caregivers. If you're considering starting a blog you can check out his at It's a very special site.

When I was in the hospital, my wife dutifully called and emailed many, many people to let them know my progress.

Another way for her to have kept in touch--and I didn't think of it at the time--was to keep a blog.

Studies have shown that cancer patients actually improve when they keep a journal of their thoughts and emotions during this trying time. But since many cancer patients are older and perhaps don't think they have the computer skills to create a blog, I've written a simple step-by-step guide to creating a blog in less than five minutes.

You can download it by clicking this link. It's in pdf format.
