Two Years!

Atelier Tally birthday cake: 2 years old

Time really does fly when you're having fun.

I had no idea what I was actually getting into two years ago when I started this blog but it remains the best genealogy related decision I have made. My genealogy life would definitely be different today if I had not taken that step. 

I wouldn't have nearly as many Facebook friends. It's unlikely I would be using Twitter or Google+. I probably wouldn't have attended two FGS conferences, one NGS conference and two Family History Expos or be planning a trip to Salt Lake City in a few weeks for RootsTech 2012. I wouldn't have so many genealogy friends. 

If I hadn't started a blog, I would still be plugging along with research and enjoying the process but it wouldn't be the same. It would not be nearly as much fun.

  2. Happy blogiversary! Here's another one ... If you hadn't started blogging, I never would have met you -- that's a tremendous bonus for me, anyway :) Keep up the good work!

  4. Congrats on the two years! I agree with you about starting the blog, I definitely would not have as many great genealogy friends.

    I am so glad we got a chance to meet at FGS and hope our paths will cross soon!
