In April of 2008, I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress and changed the name and focus of the blog as well. When I started on Blogger, my focus was strictly my O’Connell family line, so I titled the blog Climbing the O’Connell Family Tree. Not long after I started the blog I noticed that I was moving in many directions and needed to make some changes. I also had started reading many more family history/genealogy blogs and decided that I really liked the look of all the WordPress blogs. Thus, the change from Climbing the O’Connell Family Tree to Finding Our Ancestors, from blogger to WordPress.
In the past 5 months of 2010, Finding Our Ancestors has increased its readers by 4% so far, compared to 8 months of 2009. With 5 months and 10 days left in the current year, I cannot wait to see where we will end 2010!
Thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen, by your continued reading and linking to Finding Our Ancestors, you are helping me get my family information out there. I truly appreciate it. The genea blogging community is a great one and I am glad to be a part of it.
