Sample post: Week in the life

Scrapbooking history has its roots in England.  In the 15th century, commonplace books and friendship albums became popular.  Letters, poems, recipes, quotes and similar items were kept in the commonplace books.

Friendship albums were typically used when company was invited to a home.  The company would be asked to sign the album and to include something personal.  Some people included a quote, a poem or their thoughts about the homeowners.  Others drew pictures.

Part I: Scrapbooking in the 1800s


Over time, scrapbooking history included preserving black and white photos and newspaper clippings. To house these mementos, scrapbook albums were invented. Many of these albums were large and bulky.

During the mid-1800s, leather bound albums were manufactured and quite often contained themes. Some albums contained corner pockets to hold photos and even had pages for water coloring or drawing.


Part II: Thomas Jefferson Popularizes Scrapbooking

In the world of scrapbooking history, you might be surprised to learn that one of our presidents was a scrapbooker! That’s right! Thomas Jefferson created album after album of pages containing newspaper clippings of his presidency.

In the late-1800s, Mark Twain capitalized on the scrapbooking idea and invented the Mark Twain’s Adhesive Scrapbook. The book contained pre-pasted pages that made putting an album together super easy to do.


Part III: The Internet

Today, scrapbooking history also includes the impact that the internet has on this popular hobby.  Now, scrapbooking materials are accessible worldwide.  There are numerous scrapbooking websites, many of which offer free layouts and other ideas.  Within seconds, scrapbookers can find answers to their scrapbooking questions or can order supplies online.  Scrapbookers also have the choice of scrapbooking by hand or digitally.

Walk into most any craft store and you’ll find a good selection of scrapbooking supplies.  Large retail stores typically have a scrapbook section as well.

Sample post for Organization

Sociology can be defined as the science of the institutions of modernity; specific institutions serve a function, akin to the individual organs of a coherent body. In the social and political sciences in general, an “organisation” may be more loosely understood as the planned, coordinated and purposeful action of human beings working through collective action to reach a common goal or construct a tangible product.

This action is usually framed by formal membership and form (institutional rules). Sociology distinguishes the term organisation into planned formal and unplanned informal (i.e. spontaneously formed) organisations. Sociology analyses organisations in the first line from an institutional perspective. In this sense, organisation is an enduring arrangement of elements. These elements and their actions are determined by rules so that a certain task can be fulfilled through a system of coordinated division of labour.
