Sometime today when I do a couple of more posts, I will pass the 3000th post mark. When I started all this back in 2007, I would have been overwhelmed thinking about writing that much stuff. Well, you know the old saying about eating an elephant (not on my plans this week) that is same way this number of posts happens. In my presentation at RootsTech 2014 today about Blogging, I will tell how the most important part of the process of becoming a blogger is writing about something you are passionate about. I guess I am passionate about genealogy because that passion has kept me going for almost seven years of writing.
When I go back and read some of my very first posts, I can detect the lack of passion. One thing I hope I have learned is to let the passion show through into my writing. I am now seven years older and I suppose that helps some too. The total of 3000 will probably pass by without notice by most, but every thousand blog posts is another milestone and I have plenty to write about today. Let's see how much I get done before I am too tired to write today.
