Yes, folks, this baby turns ONE today. It seems older than that, doesn't it?
Last year I was hesitant to start another blog, but I needed a place to talk about genealogy without others having to listen to me talk about genealogy. I decided I could talk to this blog about it and give my family a rest.
We Tree has been a great billboard for sharing my research focus and using it to meet other long lost cousins. I also have met many wonderful bloggers. So many that whenever I go to a conference, I always know someone now. I feel very fortunate. My genealogical cup runneth over and this blog is a factor in that.
So what's on tap for the next year? Well, more of the same. This blog's focus is really "no focus." It's part diary, part advertisement, part coffee table. I do firmly believe in the value of blogging for genealogists and I may put some more attention on getting new bloggers up and running. Anyone can do it and I know I can be there to help. I also want to write professionally, so this blog may increase its duties as a platform for this goal.
Chances are that you won't even see a difference. I'm still the same hyper genealogy nerd who doesn't read instructions, won't follow the rules and finds humor in all the wrong places. So there.
Thank you to all those who read We Tree, those who left comments and those who dared to meet me in person. This has been a rewarding experience and it will continue because of your support and kindness.
