I felt that with two genealogy blogs I was neglecting one for the other. I started mixing up my family research into my "industry rant" blog. I wanted to participate in more genealogy memes and didn't know which blog "deserved" the posts more. As I try to get more readers, I feel that it is time to change my focus.
One of the things that I have enjoyed and have gotten a lot of comments are my to do lists each month. With this in mind, I have decided to simplify the name of the blog to "Gen Wish List" (plus it matches the URL) and change the motto to "Where Genealogy Goals Meet Reality".
I think that the new motto will serve this blog well. Any place where what I want to do with my genealogy research and reality don't match will find a place on this blog. This includes but is not limited to:
- my own research goals
- online databases
- genealogy software
- ancestors who do not want to be found
To simplify my genealogy presence, I have also changed my twitter account name. You can now follow me @genwishlist. I also created a LinkedIn profile.
I hope you like the changes here and aren't too confused by the name changes. Please leave me a comment with your thoughts or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
