I can do many things. I can draw and paint, knit lovely wooly things, design websites and design and create artisan jewelry. I have good focus on the things that I am passionate about; family, genealogy, history to name a few.
But a writer I am not.
I can sit paralyzed at my computer for hours trying to come up with a subject to write about. Once I do think of a possible subject I’m at a loss as to how to present it. Not to mention the additional problem of having so many family stories swimming around in my head it’s overwhelming to latch onto just one to write about. I won’t even go into my being too wordy, and that old “comma overkill” thing I’ve got going!
I have had my genealogy website up for quite a while and my genealogy research goes back many years, but the blog is fairly new due to the above-mentioned problems.
So here’s my Thankful Thursday post. Having recently (just a week ago) come across a website where genealogy blogging prompts are offered daily, my heartfelt thanks to “GeneaBloggers” for making my blog more possible than it was a few short months ago.
You’ve given me focus, you’ve given me inspiration! I can look at a “Wednesday Wedding” prompt and think “Hey, I have a wedding photo to share!” I have a treasure, I have something I’m thankful for, I have an ancestor that fits the bill! And cemetery photos, I gots them!
Woohoo, I’ve been prompted!
Along with my joy at finding blogging prompts there’s also a wealth of timely research information and resources and a great community of genealogy bloggers with so much to share.
My sincerest thanks!
