Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.
How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.
If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 3rd) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

SoCS — Whether the Weather
“What’s tomorrow’s weather outlook?” she asked as we were getting ready for bed.
I checked the weather app on my smartphone. “Mostly sunny with a high of 65,” I said. “Why?”
“I’m trying to decide whether we should take a day trip up the coast with the kids or whether we should just stick around the house and have a backyard cookout in the afternoon,” she responded. “What do you think?”
“I think the weather will work either way, whether you want to take that drive or hang out at home.”
“Let’s do the cookout,” she said after tossing the two option around in her head for a few minutes. Then she gave me a rather wry look and said, “Now we need to decide whether or not to invite my parents over.”
“Um, on second thought,” I said, “maybe we should take that ride up the coast with the kids.”
Well, I thought, whether she knows it or not, my wife definitely has got my number!
This post is for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt over at Linda G Hill’s blog, where we’re asked to use the words “whether” and “weather.”
