Genealogy blogs are not the only genre of blogs I am addicted to! I love home decor/family related blogs. They are so much fun to read and look at, they blog about their families and daily life - recording family history now for generations to come. They are working on the here and now while we are working on the past.
As I was catching up on my blog reading, I clicked on the All Things Heart and Home blog. Robin posted about the 365 day project - I was hooked. The 365 day project was created by Stephen Poff - Stephen started this project to document his year in photos with short blog entries. As family historians, this would be a wonderful way to document our lives now and to also blog about.
I had already planned on taking more photos of myself with the family. Reading Cheryl's post over at Heritage Happens brought to mind that I have not taken as many photos as I use to. I love photos and there are very few that have me in them. I do not like photos of myself so I am usually the one taking them! I need to get back to taking photos and the 365 day project is a great jump start. So...I grabbed my camera and started to take a few photos. Some I will post - many I won't because they will be of my grandchildren and I try to keep them as private as possible.
Having said that, I could not resist the above photo of my granddaughter Lola! She is so precious and I wanted this photo to be recorded in our family history and to share with all of you.
I would like to try and blog more. Being retired will give me that opportunity. I am very involved with my grandchildren and things get pretty hectic around my house.
I enjoy doing the "May I Introduce To You" articles on Geneabloggers. I am continuously working on improving my writing skills. I look forward to meeting many more genealogy bloggers. It's alot of fun, I learn so much and I have met some wonderful people.
I would like to educate myself in becoming a better researcher and genealogist, and would like to enroll in ProGen 4.
I am very sad that the Christmas season is behind us and to be honest, I am not really ready to put the decorations away. I love Christmas, winter and this time of the year, but at the same time, I am looking forward to to the new year, discovering ancestors, their stories and sharing my finds here.
The above photo of Lola, was taken by the owner of this blog ~ 2010
