Today marks the fourth anniversary of The We Tree Genealogy Blog.
I started this blog as a conversation with myself since nobody around me wanted to talk genealogy with me. If you look at the majority of my posts, I still write that way. This is my outlet and I'm cool with that.
I also used this blog as a tool to publicize some of my more unusual surnames in an attempt to reach out to new cousins. I'm pleased to say that I've been rewarded 100 times over in this department. Sure I've received photos and records, but I've also met and corresponded with so many friendly cousins. This has been the best part of blogging.
What I didn't expect was to be part of a vast growth of genealogy blogging. I've met so many other genealogists this way and I love my blogger friends.
One of those friends even encouraged me to write a book on genealogy blogging so I did!
Thank you to my readers, those who comment and those who stop by quietly. I appreciate it.
Hmm...wonder how may genealogical discoveries I can make in another four years? Stick around and see...
