The Birth of a Blog

This morning, our family was sitting around the breakfast table discussing fruit spreads when we realized we didn’t completely know the difference between jams, jellies, preserves, marmalade, etc. Using our Google-Fu we quickly found the answer (more on this later). We decided that each day, as a family, we would answer a question of what, why, or how. In other words we would learn something new using the principles of grammar, logic and rhetoric as a basis.

Next, we asked “why not share our journey into greater depths of the trivial with anyone who will listen?” Thus, the idea for familytrivium.com was born. New Year’s Day is popular day for starting new things. Why not a blog?

Throughout 2015, we will endeavor to answer 365 questions and you are welcome to follow along here, at familytrivium.com. Next year, we’ll shoot for 366, before dialing back down to 365 for 2017.

We wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2015 and look forward to a year of learning.
