(Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) It's been quite a year. I posted my first post at Heritage Zen on February 28, 2010, and I honestly don't know where the year has gone. When I started I wondered to myself, who's going to read this stuff? I really began blogging as a way to write about my research and document my memories, mainly for myself and eventually for my son when he is older.
I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my posts or make a comment. You have encourage me, greatly. Thank you also to those of you who have decided to follow me on an ongoing basis. I've learned so much from you all as well--about blogging, about writing, about genealogy, and about the generosity of the geneablogger community. It has been such a positive experience.
Over the year I've discovered that my blog and my blogging has been a changing, evolving process. I am facing new challenges with my time, and am trying my best to still blog on a regular basis. You may have noticed that I'm not posting quite as much as I use to. I've been asked to fill in for a bit at my old job, so that is taking up much of the time I use to spend blogging and researching. At home we try to follow the Cub Scout motto--Do Your Best--so that is what I will do to try to keep posting on a regular basis.
My short term goals are to post on Monday and Wednesday, and maybe occasionally post on one of other daily themes as time allows. I hope to continue to contribute to the Carnival of Genealogy each month. I also hope to post on one special topic per month, such as my Flu 1918 series in January and my interview with Colleen Fitzpatrick in February. I already have a topic in mind for March. I know this seems like an ambitious schedule given my time limitations. I'll have to see how things go and adapt as needed.
Thank you all again for being such a generous and supportive group of bloggers. You are the reason I'm looking forward to year two.
