This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first blog. Since that time blogs have gone from just online personal diaries to include legitimate news sources, tools for education, and powerful professional development resources (the ILN blog being a case in point). In more recent years online information sharing spaces like Twitter, Reddit and of course Facebook have taken over the functions that many blogs filled by allowing people and organisations to connect with each other online. But these platforms generally only allow users to broadcast of snippets of information, rather than long format writing.

Blog Every Day in June was started a few years ago by some Australian librarians who wanted to challenge themselves to blog every single day for one month. See our post from last year

I am a part-time blogger and a full time observer of people and culture. I have been researching my family history for over 20 years. I previously served as President and President-Elect (Vice-President) of one the local genealogy groups. I’ve conducted genealogy lectures and training's for corporate organizations and family history centers. I have researched my maternal and paternal sides going back 7 generations. With all that work, there is still more to discover. My genealogical goals for 2014 are to submit to libraries and history centers, family history books covering several of my family lines. I am available for consultation.
