I can hardly believe it, but today is my 11th Blogiversary! How can it be that I have been blogging about our families’ history, personal stories, and book reviews for more than a decade? The time has gone by so quickly.
In celebration of my blogiversary, I would like to share a few of my blog’s stats:
- Total number of views, 43,928
- Total number of followers, 335
- Total number of visitors, 22,877
- Total number of comments, 1,296
- Total # of likes, 3,325
- Total # of posts (not including this one), 367
- Posts’ average word count, 819
- Total number of shares, 851
- Most views in a single day, 300 (on 26 August 2018)
- Most popular viewing day of the week, Saturday
Although I know that this is not the blog to end all blogs, and those stats certainly aren’t gonna leave the world gobsmacked, I am proud of them nonetheless. So, excuse me as I celebrate 11 years of blogging ups and downs and get ready for year number 12.
As always, thank you for tagging along on my genealogical adventure!
Happy, happy, joy, joy, happy, happy, joy! Today is my 10th Blogiversary! A whole decade of blogging about our families’ history, personal stories, and book reviews. Wow! Where has the time gone?
Happy, happy, joy, joy, happy, happy, joy! Today is my blog’s 9th Blogiversary!
Feel free to join me as I do my happy dance…
Two days ago, our family said goodbye to a humble, hard-working, sensitive, soft-spoken man—my Uncle David.
Uncle David was a devout Christian who tried to follow the path of righteousness every day of his life. My uncle practiced random acts of kindness, always lending a hand or giving encouragement. He never expected remuneration for his kindnesses. Instead, he hoped that those he helped would pay it forward, doing good deeds and spreading goodwill to others.
Unassuming and modest, Uncle David would not have wanted accolades. However, because he was such a special person, I wanted to honor him in a way that would best exemplify the way he lived his life. So, in memory of my Uncle David, I am paying it forward.
