"Who are their People? My grandmother used to ask me this whenever we discussed anyone. She wanted to know family connections. Like her I want to know "My People". This blog is about that discovery.

My One Year Blogiversary!


         

  I can't believe that it has been a whole year since I began this adventure! I was so afraid to click on that "publish" button for the first time! What if what I write is dumb? What if I get laughed at? What if no one reads it?!!!!
  Well, my writing may be dumb and it might get me laughed at from time to time but what I have found is that there are people who will take the time to read my blog. I have been so blessed to have been given support, kind words and ideas on how to find my people. You will all have to forgive me  though when I say that my favorite comment came just last week. It was posted by my 9 year old Granddaughter Abbie! What a wonderful surprise!
 "Cousins" have found me too! Because of Carolina Girl Genealogy, I have been able to connect with family.  Currently I am collaborating with four "Cousins" from three different family lines! Luckily, they stumbled across my blog.
 So on this First Blogiversary, I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to come on over and read what I post about my people.
 As my Grandmother would say, "Y'all come back!"

  1. Happy Blogiversary! I just started my blog in December. It's always nice to see someone has made it for a while. I understand about pushing the publish button. I felt the same way and I still feel it on some of my posts. Have I put too much personal information in? I will be back to read more.

  2. Happy Blogiversary Cheri!

    Yes, I felt the same way you and Betty did about pushing the publish button. I noticed we both have 44 followers. I would follow you, but then you would have one more than I would. Maybe we should follow each other. Sorry I'm being silly, but sometimes we're allowed to do that at birthday parties.

    Regards, Grant

    1. I don't know if I will ever not feel nervous. It seems too that the minute I hit publish, I notice a typo or some other mistake even though I have read and reread it a million times!
      Yes, it was so great to see Abbie's name in the comments! I hope she keeps reading and tells my other grands about it!
      Thanks for stopping by!
