In all of the busy-ness of the last couple of weeks, I missed sharing our Blog's first birthday. In the Blogosphere, the anniversary of the start of a blog is called a Blogiversary!
Last Sunday, April 22, the Brant OGS blog turned one. In just one short year, we have had over 7,000 visitors to the blog. They have come from all over the world and have resulted in an increase in our query requests as well as an increase in attendance at some of our talks.
I have made 185 posts - that's a lot of knowledge! Ok, it's not all about me, but the posts have allowed the Branch to share information about our Library, our workshops, our speakers and some unidentified family heirlooms. We have also promoted local happenings, new publications and genealogy events around the region. As we have learned of new resources, we have passed them along to our blog followers.
The blog would be lost in cyberspace if it weren't for our readers (through RSS feeds) and followers, so thank you to each and every one of you.
We are looking forward to the next year and sharing all of the exciting news in the genealogy world.
Happy (Belated) Blogiversary!
