For all the Jackie lovers out there...

When I was recently doing some online research, I came across a new blog called "Everything Jackie". The writer clearly has done her homework and has all sorts of Jackie and Kennedy tidbits. She has in depth information on all the houses the Jackie had lived in, her family life and much more. Each post delves into another aspect of Jackie and her fascinating life. I am hooked!

A recent post turned me onto a new Twitter account to follow. Since she was pregnant during much of JFK's campaign, Jackie did her part to be involved by writing her "Campaign Wife" column. She wrote about politics, family issues and what was like to be a candidate's wife. Her clever columns are now being released by the JFK Library as tweets. They are so interesting and a clever way to bring Jackie in to current social media.

These are some sample tweets so far:

“For the first time since Jack and I have been married, I have not been able to be with him while he is campaigning,” she wrote.

Another tweet: “You can imagine how frustrating it is to be in Hyannis Port reading all that he’s doing and not participating in any way.”

Ooooh! Thanks for passing along such a fun and fascinating blog. I've been obsessed with Jackie since I first read a biography of the Kennedy family in middle school. :)
