Genealogy reminds us of where we came from, and sometimes who helped us get here.
And so too, as bloggers we should remember our origin from time-to-time. Probably the best way to do this is to review one’s early blogging moments and days. My thanks to Ascender Rises Above, for inspiring this article.
I began blogging on March 16, 2006. In addition to posting several stories that month, I sought out New Hampshire and genealogy-specific bloggers to add to my list of posted favorites. Among them was the first person to comment on this blog.
The article “Live Free or Die Here–You’re Going to Love it,” was a tongue-in-cheek article about New Hampshire’s state motto. Joanie from Grain of Sand, was my very first commenter, following immediately by DCE from “Weekend Pundit.” My thanks to both of them for the much-needed encouragement.
We should all take a few minutes to acknowledge our early commenters!
