On September 3, 2010 I sent out my first blog post. I wanted to reach out to others who might be related to my family tree and who would be willing to share & compare information. My daughter, Alyssa, helped me set up my blog. I was both nervous and excited as I made decisions about the layout, title & the first post.
One of the best things that has happened over the years has been the connection with GeneaBloggers! I have been entertained & educated & challenged to improve by Thomas MacEntee and fellow members of this great group.
An unexpected perk has been making blogging buddies like Charlie, Wendy & Cheri. They are always willing to encourage & give suggestions & just be friendly.
I have made some connections with distant family members. I hope to find even more. Maybe I'll discover that one person who just happens to have a trunk full of original family documents and a pile of ancient photo albums! ha!
Meanwhile, it is time for a slice of cake, a glass of wine and a look back at how far I've come.
