Just like with my wedding anniversary, I totally missed my genealogy blog anniversary last week. A year. A whole year. I remember the moment it clicked- blogging and genealogy. Blogging was NOT new to me. I’ve been blogging since before it was a verb. But I blogged for my personal life. Genealogy didn’t interest those in my personal life so I never wrote about my genealogy adventures. But I loved genealogy adventures and I loved writing (when someone would actually read it).
I went to the Northern California Family History Expo a little over a year ago with just the intention of having a good time. I sat down to adjust my
crap goodies and someone (I think it may have been Amy Coffin, although I never even got her name so I just imagine and pretend that it was Amy and that I met her in person) started talking to a new crowd about blogging. She was going over how free and easy it was and I knew about free and easy, but I sat there wondering how I could have Google Reader and follow a jillion mommy blogs that I read every day and never ever once thought to even look for genealogy blogs.
I made a note on a
piece of crap flier to look into that asap. Then I realized that I could WRITE ONE, TOO! Someone might read it and know what I mean when I say, “Genealogy Happy Dance”. Or, better yet, someone might read it and have some fun stuff for me. Like cousinhood. Which in one year has happened three times already.
I may have some times when not much appears here, but that’s only because I’m preparing stuff to appear here. (maybe).
Thanks for being here for me, oh blog o’mine. You keep me genealogically new.
