I can't believe I'm writing this. Today is my 10th blogiversary! Lisa Hork Gorrell and I started our blogs on January 15, 2011. They say time flies when you're having fun, but I am amazed to realize that we've been blogging for a whole ten years.
Admittedly, the past year hasn't been as productive as some earlier ones. What with my shoulder surgery last August and the pain leading up to it, I definitely have not posted as much as I wanted to. I have this long list of topics I want to write about, but I still have trouble finding the energy to follow up on them.
I still managed to squeeze out a post about every three days. (It's harder to count the posts now that Blogger has "improved" [cough] the platform interface. Whereas before 100 posts were shown on a page, now it's one of those endless pages that keeps growing as long as you keep scrolling. Highly annoying, if you ask me. Which they obviously didn't.) Most of those were Wordless Wednesdays and Saturday Night Genealogy Funs (thank heavens for regular memes).
I'm happy to say, however, that I finally did write up a couple of the stories I had on my list. I described the tortuous path I took to find my great-great-grandmother immigrating to the United States (traveling with one more child than I had expected), and I celebrated my maternal grandfather on his birthday. I also reported on a surprising DNA match on my mother's (Jewish) side of the family, and posted about my aunt's son on his 75th birthday, keeping my fingers crossed that I can find him (or what happned to hiim) before my 95-year-old aunt passes away. And there were a few additional original, nonmeme posts as well. Progress!
So it's on to the next year, with more plans to get my schedule back on track. Hope springs eternal!
