|yes, I felt like I was running away.|
Today, I revisited my blog going back to the beginning and saw why I had loved it. I wasn't trying to meet a standard or show I had an understanding of writing, genealogy, etc. I was just sharing and having fun. Which unless you are a business and trying to show your professional side, that I believe is what it should be. I am going to start making an effort to go back to my personal blogging and sharing with my family again. I am not a professional and would hope that the blog would not be judged by such standards.
There are memes by Thomas...the Geneablogger Daily Prompts, Amy Crow has a 31 Days of Genealogy, Olive Tree still has a prompt Sharing Memories, Aine of BlueRaspberrySundays posts a prompt on Sundays. You can even find Family History Writing Prompts on Pinterest which is helpful for blogging if you think you are having a challenge with subject matter.
If you are like me, and see your posts have dwindled down over time, go back and see why you started, why you were excited. It is almost like a marriage, you have to work at the relationship to keep it alive. I have seen some move to a different server to perk up their blog; this I am not going to do as I have seen their pain as they went through that process. I am looking to renew my blog relationship not start a new one. I digress. Use the memes again, post fun things as well as great finds.
This has been my thoughts and I am sorry to use your time to help myself find what I have been missing. Hope it helps you.
