Forgive me for blowing my own trumpet, but I am really rather excited to be celebrating my first blogiversary!! It’s one year ago today that I started this blog and although there has been a couple of gaps because of the awful internet connection problems I was having (and which is still happening a bit off and on), I am quite amazed at just how much information and photos and such I have on here already!
I still have so very much to add, and still don’t seem to have any order as such with adding things. I know I have badly neglected my Coming Soon section and my Ancestor Anniversaries, so as this blog goes into it’s second year, I will make an earnest effort to get those sorted and properly do posts for them!
As this is a special day, I am also going to announce a new theme for some of my posts, but will write about that in a separate post today.
I want to thank Thomas at GeneaBloggers for adding this blog to the many already listed there, because it has been a turning point which has helped immensely with the items I have blogged about. It was through GeneaBloggers that I came across the Daily Blogging Themes, and they are a great help to prompt as to what to write about.
I also want to thank all the new geneablogging friends I have made over this first year. Many have visited my blog and commented, which is always appreciated. I have visited their blogs and have found them so very interesting and it really doesn’t matter that their ancestors are not connected to mine!
Thank you also to my cousins who also have been popping in to see the blog and either commenting here or by email. I’m delighted to have found some new cousins both for me and my other half Paul, through this blog.
Onwards now, to look forward to my next blogiversary in a years’ time. I wonder if I will have managed to get all the info I have on the blog by then? More than likely not, as I have so very much and will probably gain even more copies of documents and Wills and photos as my new blog year progresses.
It’s been a wonderful year blogwise for me, and I hope you will find some items of interest in amongst the lot of chitchat I seem to do.
Yaaaaay!!! A first for me!! I’m doing a little genealogists happy dance just because it is my blogiversary, but hey, the first one is special isn’t it?
