I can’t believe I missed this milestone a few days ago, but on June 14, my blog turned two. (I’ve now added the date to my calendar so I won’t miss it next year.)
I’m grateful for this blog because brought me closer to my family and helped me make friends. If it weren’t for the blog, I wouldn’t know about (let alone be attending) the Brown family reunion I’m looking forward to in less than two weeks. I’ve also become acquainted with a distant Adams relative. And the blog helped me make a new friend at RootsTech, who made that conference so much less overwhelming.
Last year on my blogiversary, I listed a few stats. I thought I’d update them to see how things are going.
In the second year of this blog:
- I wrote 74 posts (79 posts in the first year).
- There were a total of 35,198 views (6,424 in year one)
- I had 316 comments–counting my own (106 comments in the first year)
- 160 people subscribe to the blog (that number was 82 on 6/14/13)
I like the trajectory I’m seeing, though I’d like to see the annual number of posts grow.
I so appreciate how interactive my blog readers are–I’ve been blogging on my organizing blog for six years and I don’t have nearly as much interaction, so thank you! If there are any topics you’d like to see me cover, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
