When Randy Talks, People Listen

I couldn't figure out why I had such a spike in blog visitor traffic today until I saw where everyone was coming from: Mr. Genea-Musings mentioned my daily reports from the NGS conference on his blog.

Thanks, Randy, and everyone else who has left comments. I'm glad someone is reading my reports because it is SO hard to get up early, spend all day at the convention center, go to dinner, then roll back to the hotel only to do the same thing the next day. The last thing I want to do late at night is draft a blog post, but I want to get the info out there for others.

I'm also surprised more conference attendees haven't written posts. I do know some of the bigger names are very busy. It seems there's a board meeting, a booth to staff or something else going on all the time.

I chose to blog daily and tweet often because I hope to see the same information from other genea-bloggers when they go to an event I can't attend. Mahatma Ghandi said to be the change you want to see, so I am. I want to see more updates from genealogy conferences and meetings.

(I almost wrote #genealogy. It's time to rest now.)
