Three Years Blogging ~



Another year has passed and my Blogiversary is here once again! It's hard to believe it passed so quickly. I had big blogging dreams for 2010, but as non-genealogy life stuff happened, I didn't blog as much as I would have liked. I appreciate those that have visited and left comments for me with the few posts I did manage to get out there. I also discovered a cousin, Russ Worthington over at A Worthington Weblog . . . so blogging has been very rewarding and I appreciate the friendships I have made.

I have learned so much in the last three years and I say a big thank you to many of my genea~blogger friends who have helped, supported and guided me and just made it fun to be here. In the very beginning, my writing really needed help. Thanks to Thomas for giving me the opportunity to do the "May I Introduce To You" interviews at GeneaBloggers, my writing improved greatly and I am now a little more comfortable with posting.

I still consider myself a "newbie" researcher and family historian with a very long way to go . . . but, I am very excited to get back into my research in 2012, and with that, I hope to have more to blog about here . . . here's to a new year of sharing with you and keeping up the search.

Happy Blogiversary. I'm surprised you've only been blogging for 3 years. I would of pegged you as one of the real old timers.
