In many ways I feel like the New Kid in the world o' genealogy blogging. I have "had" this blog since 2009, but only really made a concerted effort to post last fall. These are two reasons that helped me get back on track:
I follow Thomas via posts to Geneabloggers, on Facebook, and on Twitter. His blog is so helpful for us little guys. I most appreciate his well-organized posts and ideas using technology in genealogy. By following some of the blogging prompts, I can keep on top of my own posting. It's kind of my mental posting calendar right now. I even started my own weekly prompt: THIMBY Thursday spotlighting The History in My Backyard. Thanks Thomas!
For a cosmic reason I have yet to understand, I spend an inordinate amount of time in cemeteries. When I lived in Michigan and was able to visit ancestral cemeteries, I took lots of pictures. We have since moved to Illinois, so I treasure those paper reminders of my ancestors. Now I photograph area cemeteries just because they're there! Find A Grave is the lucky recipient of most of my work.
When I came across Amy's gravestone blog, I knew I wasn't alone in my cemetery travails. She posts many interesting old stones with stories and epitaphs. Her blog is simple but compelling. I enjoy seeing stones older and dissimilar to the ones in my area. We even discovered a genealogical connection, and she probably thinks she has a stalker! Thanks Amy!
