"Why I Blog"
"I write Grandma's Briefs so I can feel a connection, day in and day out, to my long-distance grandsons. But that's not all, and it's definitely not just for grandmas. Grandma's Briefs is where I suss out--for all the world to see and hopefully relate to--all that goes along with being a grandma, a mom, a wife, a woman getting older yet still working out how to best make a positive mark on my family, on my world." (Via email. Read Lisa's blogging advice.)

Guide's Comments
I don't know anyone who has done more for grandparent blogging than Lisa. Her "Grilled Grandma" feature has enabled blogging grandparents to find each other and form a real community. She does, however, have lots of readers who aren't grandparents, thanks to her eclectic mix of topics and her daily posting.
