WOW, It's My Third Blogiversary!!!



Yes, a couple of weeks ago I actually thought about putting this blog to rest. Nighty night, good by, adios!


If I hadn't walked away from the blog, laptop and internet for several days, that very well could have been the case. By the time I came back to it all, there had finally been improvement with the URL I purchased. It only took 6 or 7 phone calls, a couple of months, a lot of waiting AND literally going in circles!


I am not sure how everything is working for all of you, but it seems to finally be correct at my end! I would be interested in hearing if you have any issues or problems, so please don't hesitate to leave me a comment if you are having difficulties.

For now...today...

I CELEBRATE!

  "my Heritage Happens" ~ 3rd Blogiversary!
 (I hoped to have the new URL in place by blogiversary time, and it looks like I just made it!)


Please, don't forget to take note & update your Google Reader, lists etc. to the new URL if you haven't already done so ~
www.myheritagehappens.com  
(You do need the www. in front of the URL  for the link to work properly)


So where is this next year going with my Heritage Happens? I have been making changes to the blog and am not complete with this project yet. I have been taking a few genealogy classes with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies and have been participating in the #31 Weeks to a Better Genealogy Blog with Tonia over at Tonia's Roots, so I am hoping there will be more improvements with the posts here as well.


I plan to continue sharing my ancestors and their stories with you as well as sharing what I am learning, seeing and doing in the genealogy field. Like most of us bloggers, I have been crazy busy and still can't find enough time in a day. I don't think this year I will be able to fix that though.


I plan to continue to share a bit of my personal life here and there also, such as crafts, photos, vacations and maybe even a bit of the prince and princess! (My grandson and granddaughter) I have been printing my blog to books, which hopefully will be heirlooms one day. This is why I have chosen to add a bit of personal life also, after all, we all have lives!


A great big THANK YOU to all of my followers, supporters, and teachers, including my "personal assistants!" (You know who you are!) I have made great friendships and thoroughly enjoy the GeneaBlogger Community. I hope I have grown in the last three years of my blogging career and plan to continue to learn, grow, and share!


Keep in mind also, I still have to live "MY GREAT SWEDISH ADVENTURE" and plan to share this with you in the up coming year also!



Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  3. Hi, this is my first visit to your blog. While I have been blogging since 2006, I have only recently gotten into genealogy blogging. (Actually, I only jumped in to the fascinating world of genealogy about 4 months ago.)

    Anyhow, it's great that you didn't delete your blog. Take that from me. I started blogging in 2006, but in 2009, I had some personal issues that I needed to work through, so I stopped blogging. I ended up deleting my blog, and when I went back to blogging in mid 2010, I wanted to kick myself...because I was starting from scratch and was really longing to look back at some old posts.

    So, congratulations on 3 blogging years.

    Blessings to you,
    Patti

  4. Happy Blogiversary, Cheryl! Keep up the good work, and don't get discouraged (even when it's technology-related). Stepping away and taking a break is usually the best way to clear your mind and calm your nerves. If all else fails ... start drinking, then blog ... it may not make any sense, but it sure will be entertaining :)

    Happy you are going to be around longer, I enjoy reading your Blog. How do you NOT feel guilty about not posting when living get in the way of your life like what's happening to me. To do a quality post takes me more time than I have at present - I hate that feeling!

  24. Patti, even if I quite blogging I wouldn't delete my blog, I would hope there would still be more "relatives" to find it!
    Jenny, technology is the worst!
    Lori, that must have been a blogger problem, the Follower section is working here
    Marian I look forward to that also!
    Barbara, we have been around together for a long time, glad you decided to blog finally!
    Heather, I agree and feel exactly the same way!
    Greta, I am so honored! Now there are only a couple thousand blogs to choose to follow!
    Renee, I either post a non quality post or don't post at all! lol Sometimes it is just that way!

    I thank you all very much for acknowledging my blogiversary! Thank you for taking the time to let me know you are glad I am still here and look forward to more blog posts from my Heritage Happens. I am glad several of you commented and like the newest look of the blog.

    Again, thank you all! Time to get moving into year number 4!
