Welcome

New Year-New Look

01 March 2011

One year ago today I started blogging.  I thought I would quietly enter the world of blogging and take my time to become comfortable with it.  I didn't know what a wonderful world of geneabloggers there was out there.  I was amazed at all the genealogy blogs and bloggers that were doing the same thing that I was, only better.  I have learned so much from reading other blogs.  And the guru of the genealogy world, Tom MacEntee, what a great resource he provides.  So, after 190 or so posts, what I thought would be a quiet, unknown entry into blogging became so much more.  I would have never guessed that I would be the recipient of such support with blogging.  Thank you so much to all my readers.  I appreciate all the comments I have received.  It helps make me a better blogger.

You may have noticed a little change here.  As a blogoversary present to myself I have decided to spruce things up a bit.  I am tired of the dark background and want to go lighter.  So, I have changed backgrounds and organized a few things.  I hope you like the changes, the blog itself will stay the same, of course!

Here's a little trip down memory lane.  My top five posts by pageviews are:
  1. Happy Birthday, W.K. Kellogg
  2. Ancestor Biography-Daisy Ellen Graf
  3. Ancestor Biography-Harry Glover
  4. Tombstone Tuesday-German P.O.W's
  5. Don't Let Yourself Be a Future Brickwall
I hope if you are reading about Daisy or Harry because they are in your family, you will feel free to contact me.  I love to connect with new 'cousins'.
