Happy 1st Blogiversary to Me!














Happy Blogiversary to me!

Today marks one full year since I started this blog. To think I was worried I wouldn't have enough to write about for a few months let alone a year. I have to say that this year has been great fun being part of the Genea-Bloggers and the blogging world.

Blogging has given me special moments to look at personal photos I may not have looked at for several more years. It gave me discipline to write about my ancestors, and during that writing time I found I focused on each individual as a person instead of thinking of them as a name and number in a census or on a chart. I have made several family connections and friends because of this blog. I have become more organized with my family history and research. In other words, to put it bluntly, genea-blogging and Genea-Bloggers ROCK!

I am so very grateful to the seasoned bloggers who have helped me along the way. It was a pleasure to meet many of you at Jamboree this year! Genea-Bloggers are the absolute best in the world! I hope to meet many more of you in the future. Even though there are quite a few that I haven't met, I feel as if I have known you all forever!

I am especially grateful for all of my readers and those followers who leave comments. I slap my hands many times because I read so many great posts and don't make the time to comment. I appreciate that you make and take the time to do so! You are going to make me a better role model, by following in your footsteps. Please know how much I enjoy all of your comments and appreciate your support!

Gee, now how should I celebrate?

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  4. Happy Blogiversary! I also wondered if I would have enough to write about when I started my blog.I haven't run out of things yet. Sometimes I do wonder if anyone out there is reading. My blog isn't the greatest but I try. I am also trying to do better at leaving comments. Enjoy your blog!
