It's My Party - And I'll Lie If I Want To
Of The footnoteMaven Blog
I can hear you. You're saying, "There goes Maven lying about her age again." But it's true.
They say that the Web doesn't run on human years, it runs on Web-years. Every blog year is the equivalent of six human years. That means that today footnoteMaven celebrates three human years of blogging, the equivalent of 18 web years. No wonder my hair is gray.
GeneaBlogging has changed a great deal since my first post. Today there are many more genealogists who read blogs than disparage them. Yes, there are still those who rail against the quality of our content, but their numbers are dwindling. Genealogists who blog are a fast growing segment of the genealogy population. The Genealogue's blog finder is tracking 1,556 genealogy blogs.
We blog in exciting times and I look forward to the year before us.
This year genealogy hits the masses with Faces of America on PBS, The Generations Project on BYU, and NBC's Who Do You Think You Are?
This week Family Tree Magazine recognized the GeneaBlogging community by publishing its selections for the Top 40 Genealogy Blogs.
This day, I celebrate my personal triumph of being a member of the GeneaBlogging community for three years.
As it's my party and I have the magic lamp, I'd like to make three wishes:
May I continue to blog in these interesting times
May I continue to enjoy writing, and you continue to enjoy reading what I write
May I find what I'm looking for, whatever that may be
And to those who take the time to read, enjoy, comment, and
become friends, thank you! I wouldn't be here without you
and it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.
