Today is my actual blogiversary. My ‘Hello World” post went live two years ago and I’m still writing… not as often as I want, but hey, I’ve managed to keep it up and I’ve had fun doing it. I’ve also had a lot of neat experiences that I think are a direct result of the blog and the people I’ve connected with through it.
I’ve been invited to speak (and write) for what I consider my home genealogical society—WMGS, at the annual Abrams Family History Seminar hosted by the Archives of Michigan, and most recently at the Ionia County Genealogical Society. Thank you all! Each was a fabulous experience!
I’ve also become one of the genealogy resources at my workplace and have a couple of programs in the works for them in the winter—which is kind of neat for a Readers’ Services Librarian.
And, as I’ve noted before, this experiment has helped me identify problems and holes in my research, helped me connect to new friends, relatives, and fellow genies in a new and fun way, and it’s kept me seriously working on something that both excites me and pulls me out of my comfort zone.
So, thank you all for a fabulous two years!
