My Seventh Blogiversary


Today is my seventh blogiversary. It's hard to believe it's been seven years since I started blogging. As always, I appreciate my readers, especially the ones who have hung in there the past three years when my posting has decreased significantly. I enjoy the group of Scanfesters that come back month after month (or even every other month, when I have to postpone one!). Blogging takes time, because composing, researching, and checking my facts takes time. The physical act of writing also takes time, as well as the editing and revising process. Time has been one commodity that has especially been short in my life the past three years. This year, I've already been busy with ProGen, and I hope to post a bit about it, to keep you updated with my progress.

Thank you, once again, from the bottom of my heart, for supporting and encouraging me, and for taking the time to read and comment. It means so very much to me!

Wonderful! Congratulations! And I do understand the bit about time being an issue. (Who would guess!! :) Best wishes for many more happy years of genealogy and blogging.

Huge congratulations, Miriam, on 7 years! You are a committed blogger to keep at it for so long, especially with other challenges you've faced in recent years. I think your blog was one of the first I found when thinking about starting a gen blog a few years ago. What a good role model you are! Best wishes for another 7 years of a great blog.

Well done, Miriam! You were one of the reasons I started blogging - and just a year after you started (minus a few days). It's good to see you back but I certainly understand how life 'gets in the way' sometimes. Especially with the types of changes you've had in your life! Looking forward to reading about your adventures with ProGen.

Miriam,
Belated congratulations! I don't get here or to Scanfest as often as I'd like but know how much I value your friendship and your writing. Good luck with your ProGen adventure!

Miriam J. Robbins said...

Thanks, Kathryn! I miss "seeing" you at Scanfest!

Happy belated Blogiversary. It's always great to hear from you. I know you will enjoy ProGen. It's been an excellent experience for me. However much time you set aside for it, set aside some rxtra. You'll need it :)

Thank you, Michelle. I am enjoying it, and yes, it does take time...especially the feedback.

Brian said...

Wow, interesting, my 7-year blogiversary (at least this blog as it stands now) was on January 17, 2013. What are the odds?

Miriam J. Robbins said...

It was a great week, Brian! Happy blogiversary to you!
