Today is my 5th Blogiversary! Yes, that's right, I have been blogging for 5 years now! Wow, it is hard to believe sometimes. The time goes by so fast.
So what have I accomplished in these 5 years? I have managed to get photos, stories, and research problems out there for all to read about. I have met tons of cousins and other researchers interested in the same surnames and family lines. And geekily speaking, my page now ranks #1 on the Google search engine for the "Godwin" keyword search query!
And the best part of it all is that I still have so much more to write about! I am still amazed at how much exposure we bloggers get on our family lines just by writing about them. Whether it be a photo of a headstone or our grandparents' wedding, or just a census image shared and talked about. So if you are considering starting a blog or wondering what or how it would benefit you or your research, do not hesitate! Do it now! As you can see from experience, I'm on 5 years and still going!
I would like to thank all of you, my readers, for taking the time to stop by and check out my photos, read my stories, leave suggestions in my comment boxes and for all around supporting me and my efforts. Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me and because of it I have made so many new friends and learned so much.
And here's a cute little photo to highlight what I do when I'm not blogging and the weather is nice ....
