1st Anniversary

Well, we made it!  It's our 1st Anniversary!
For those of you who are just now stopping by, let me tell you how this all happened.

This time last year I was working on my family tree and had discovered research "outside the box" of  Up until that point, that was the only place I knew to look for records and other documents and information.  I was curious about a town called Delba, TX where my grandmother was born, so I did what every "smart" person would do, I googled it.  I had already been blogging at this time, but only had one personal blog.  Somehow, I typed the right combination of words in and I found Creative Gene.  As I read through the blog I was amazed at all the stuff that was out there in our computer world.  I then started reading more blogs and before the evening was over, "Where I Come From" was created. 

One of the blogs talked about the fact that our younger generations were not interested in paper chasing and dead people. We needed to find someway to get them involved and interested in what we were doing.  The most logical way was through computers.  In our computerized world, everyone uses a computer.  So, I did it!  Now "Where I Come From" can be a lasting memory for my children and future grandchildren to see where they came from too.



  2. Happy blogoversary!! Love your blog, and can't wait to see what new discoveries you will have to share with us during its second year!

  3. Belated Happy Blogoversary Robin! I'm sorry to say that I didn't see the comment you left on my blog until today. I don't know why some comments get sent to my spam folders and others don't :-7 Anyway, thank you so much for crediting Creative Gene with inspiring you to get started blogging. That was so nice of you! {{hugs}}

    And now that you've got one year under your belt you are officially no longer a "newbie". Not very many people make it to one year of blogging. Good for you!

    I see that you have other blogs too. I haven't had a chance to look them over yet but I will, soon.

    I have to agree with you Robin, my greatest accomplishment is being a MOM too! My kids are 24 and 19 now but they will always be my babies. I still champion their interests and efforts, celebrate their achievements, and worry about them if I haven't heard from them in a while (or if they're traveling, or feeling sick, or studying for an exam, etc. ;-) Being a mom is the greatest. Genealogy and photography are pretty great too :-)

  4. Congrats on your first year. I always enjoy reading your posts and am excited to see what you have in store for the future.
