In January 2010, I wondered
“would anyone would read what I wrote?”
You never know unless you try. So, I began. Tentatively, and with only a small hope that anyone would read my posts. Here is my very first post Blogging about family research - Day 1
Some years I've been more productive in terms of posts and others, not as much. But, I’ve managed to publish 660 posts. I’ve received 2,188 comments on those posts and have replied to every one.
Cousin connections have been made and furthered my research and theirs.
The support of our blogging community has been a huge part of my success. Shout outs to the following bloggers for promoting my posts in their “Best of” series.
Randy Seaver of Geneamusings (by far my top supporter and a very big thank you)
Jana Iverson Last in Jana’s Genealogy and Family History (I miss your Friday Finds posts)
Gail Deaver in Genealogy á la carte
Jo Henn in Climbing my Family Tree
Miriam Robins in AnceStories
Julie Cahill Tarr in Julie’s Genealogy & History Hub
Let’s look at what posts have been my ALL TIME most read.
Here are the TOP 10 and how many “hits” they’ve had
ADDING SIBLING LINKS TO FINDAGRAVE – 32,937
PHOTO DUPLICATION REQUESTS ON FAMILY SEARCH – PLUS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT LEGACY AND EVERNOTE – 6,925 (NOTE – this service has been discontinue)
THANK YOU to all the readers who have made this journey possible. I’m not done yet. Here’s to more discoveries and more connections.
Disclaimer – I do realize that some of the stats on all of our blogs reflect “hits” from people who are not necessarily readers, but trollers etc. Since we cannot distinguish those in our total numbers….as they say, it is what it is.
