One year ago late in the night after attending the Family History Expo I started my blog. I was trying to sleep and thinking about all the things I had learned and all the things I have had to do. Since sleep was evading me, I got out of bed and started my blog. I already had a quilting blog so it was easy for me to start. It has been a great adventure. You can read that first post here.
During the expo I had spoken to Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers and Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems and they both encouraged me to start my blog. I am grateful that I did listened to them. They are both encouraging people.
Why am I grateful, I have learned a lot, I have started writing my personal history, I have made new friends and I learned from them. I have shared with others thinks I have learned and even my cousin heard a story she didn't know about our family. My blog has helped me grow as a Genealogist. It gives me things to think about and a place to share my thoughts. Some of my thoughts haven't been shared yet, but I need to save something for the next year.
I want to thank my 50 known followers and my unknown followers for your visits and your comments. I actually have more followers on my Genealogy Blog than on my Quilting blog and it is a year older. Thanks for all your comments and encouragement.
Here is a snap shot of my stats since May when blogger started keeping them. It is interesting to me to review the different tabs.
Well last year I was getting up late in the night to write a post this year I have to dash off to work.
One small step for me and my ancestors!
