A couple of years later, I was actually retired and while still enjoying photography, I had become deeply involved in genealogy. After considering whether I could maintain two blogs, I decided to focus my attention on a new blog: "Living in the Past: A Family History." At first, I expected the readers to not extend far beyond my family, but over time my readership has grown. I've found things to share with other genealogists and other bloggers, and the response has been wonderful.
I became curious about how the two blogs compared. Here's a small reckoning as of April 26, 2106:
One Woman, Reinvented
2-1/2 years, 175 posts, 41,875 pageviews
My Muse? Flora, Goddess of Flowers 1681 views
Is it cruel to keep cats indoors? 818 views
Okay, about bird poop . . . 506 views
Living in the Past
3-1/4 years, 212 posts, 50,636 pageviews
Lost in the Homeland Part 1: Researching Genealogy in Germany = 6922
Lost in the Homeland Part 2: Researching Genealogy in Germany = 722
Once You Open the Closet Door (A Mystery Solved) = 596
The strong response to my "Lost in the Homeland" posts have led me to expand the information in an e-book that should be available soon. The book is intended for beginning researchers in German genealogy and will be full of resources to help you on your way.
Leave me your email on the pop-up and I'll be happy to let you know when it's out!
