Many of you may have heard, I have been authoring the recent May I Introduce You To series on GeneaBloggers. This has been a great experience and I have been learning so much!
I am fairly new to the genealogy blogging circuit and actually blogging in general. I had many fears about starting my own genealogy blog: I felt that others would not be interested in reading what I had to share on my blog. Also, I have only been doing my own family history for less than two years, without much research or family history experience under my belt, so there really wouldn’t be a lot of material to post about yet.
In addition, I was working full time up to October 6th, but now I am gratefully retired, as I want to pursue genealogy almost full time. I feel I have found something I love to do - now, I just need to learn to improve my writing skills and stlye for my blog. Being a part of the genea-blog family as I call it has taught me so much about many different things that I would not have learned had I not started blogging.
Writing the May I Introduce You To articles has given me the opportunity to improve my writing skills. I love doing the articles and learning about other genealogy bloggers, how they started their blogs, what their fears about blogging were in addition to understanding their heritage and history. There are so many incredibly talented and knowledgeable people who make a difference in so many of our lives and the lives of others.
It is my pleasure to write the articles and get to know many of you. I want to thank GeneaBloggers for such a great opportunity. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
