Ten years ago, I was introduced into the world of blog writing, and in the fall of that year, I began this blog, and all articles were related to genealogy. Probably two years later, I started, Flowers from my Area, it showed gardens and flowers and 25 people followed it. It wasn't publicized on social media, but I do know, some people enjoyed it. Perhaps a year later, my 3rd post began. Seeing New England consisted of many photos and information, and was followed by 75 or more.
Some of the Seeing New England posts were copied into Life from the Roots, and all are under the tab of Travel /Tourism, with the approximate date I took the trip.
So what about the current blog? Will it survive? I still have the picture problem,...that is a huge issue now. I've published 1,273 posts, have over 704,000 pageviews. The interesting fact is, my top 9 Posts as Determined by Google (you can see it on my home page) have little to do with genealogy. Three are photos of monuments, three about Lowell, Massachusetts, a photo of me and my grandmother, a post I wrote about visiting a Family History Center, and an outline of my Lay family (which is listed first). Over the years, most viewers are interested in the non-genealogy articles. More recently, it has been the historic houses and libraries I've visited.
Okay, time to cut this short, as I hate long posts. My Resolution? I really don't know what I'll do. More important than my blog is the reader, and if you have read one, twenty or more of my posts, I salute you. Thank You and Happy New Year's.
