One Year Blog Anniversary

First I want to thank the awesome community of genealogy bloggers! You have been so welcoming, encouraging, and helpful. I have learned a lot about genealogy in general and my family specifically because of your kindness. By joining this community I have learned more in one year than in all the previous seven years of researching. I have to give some extra credit to Bill West of West in New England and Heather Wilkinson Rojo of Nutfield Genealogy as my earliest sources of inspiration and two of my biggest supporters. If you want to take your genealogy to the next level and see your ancestors as more than names and dates on a page, start blogging. Finding stories is easier than you think.

Some stats from my first year of blogging - 95 Posts:

Total pageviews - 10, 115

Top referring sites - Google, Facebook, Google UK, and Geneabloggers

Audience - Primarily U.S. but almost 1000 pageviews from Russia, other countries represented include: UK, Germany, Canada, France, Australia, Ukraine, Latvia, and China

Browsers - 41% Firefox, 26% Internet Explorer, 18% Chrome, 8% Safari, various mobile applications

Operating Systems - 61% Windows, 21% Mac, 11% Linux, the rest are mobile systems
