Happy Blogoversary!

Happy Blogoversary!

It’s hard to believe that it has been 4 years since I started this blogging journey.  At the time, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to keep it going.  To be sure, some months I have posted more than others. 

I’ve almost completed my MBA through Indiana Wesleyan University, which has taken most of my time lately.  Once that is completed, I can hopefully have more time to dig into the details of my family that have yet to be discovered.

I’ve learned a lot about my family simply by putting the facts down in this blog.  For many branches, I’m learning that I don’t have as much information as I thought I had.  For branches closer to me, I’ve realized that over the years I’ve overlooked some basic genealogy 101-type information that I need to go back and document.

Thanks to Geneabloggers and the memes, I have been tried to keep current content.  I’m better at posting Tombstone Tuesday than any of the others.  I would really like to start doing some Follow Friday and Treasure Chest Tuesday memes in the coming year, if time permits.  John at Transylvanian Dutch’s meme of Amanuensis Monday looks interesting as well.

The community of geneabloggers is a growing group, and I try to keep up with as many as I can through Google Reader.  It has been neat to find connections with other bloggers who share distant ancestors.

This past year I’ve joined the Twitterverse and met and exchanged tweets with several of my fellow geneabloggers.  I find Twitter very helpful in getting out the word on blog posts and furthering discussion in the community.

I hope that my “Family Milestone” posts are not too boring to people.  Through them, I’ve managed to make contacts with a few far-flung relatives.  In the coming year, I hope to add information about my wife’s side of the family as well.

May you continue to have genealogical success!

Travis, Happy Blogoversary to you, and four years at that, I'm impressed. I didn't know you were working on your MBA, extra kudos there. I always read your blog, I think you know that, because you never know when a common name will appear. Cheers to you.
