Woohoo! I Made it into the Top 40 Genealogy Blogs!
- Hi everyone,
Last night I found out that Olive Tree Genealogy blog was voted one of
Family Tree Magazine's Top 40 Genealogy
To put it mildly, I was surprised, shocked and yes - delighted!
After writing about the nominations for Top 40 in a previous blog post To
Scramble or Not to
you can probably imagine my surprise at actually being voted into a top
place! Especially because I didn't scramble.
So thank you to all my loyal readers who voted for my blog! I appreciate
your support so much, it makes the hard work of writing a daily blog
worthwhile. Knowing that someone (or several someones) out there enjoy or
gain knowledge from what I write means the world to me.
I'm one of 5 in the "Everything" Category. I love the description of an
*"These are the "variety shows" of geneablogs. Find a little (or a lot) of
everything here: news releases, product reviews, tips, finds, rants, raves,
shout-outs and humor."*
I also chuckled over their statement that I've been blogging since "the
Middle Ages"! It's true, I started blogging in 2003 before most people had
even heard of a blog. Since Feb 9, 2003 to March 9, 2011 I've written 1,141
blog posts (I didn't write very often the first 4 years my blog was online).
My family always says I like to talk! And I guess that's the proof.
Being voted in to Top 40 with 39 other amazing blogs has my head spinning
and I'm honoured to be in such good company. I hope if you haven't read the
rest of those on the list that you'll take a few minutes to have a look at
