Genealogy Blog Anniversary

    Today is the 5th Anniversary of my blog…time does fly!  My first blog was written on 30 July of 2007 and I've written (almost) every week since then.  When I started, I used iWeb which met my needs for the first few years, but I found I wasn't getting much visibility on the web.  If people knew my name (and could spell it <g>) it was easy to find, but I didn't appear on the first few pages of the search engines.  Last year I bit the bullet and upgraded my site to Sandvox.  Since there was no way at the time to migrate the site, I had to copy and paste the text from my old site, recreating each page.  In the process, I deleted some of my old blogs that were no longer relevant.  

    For those who are Mac users and interested in setting up a website, I would recommend Sandvox.  It is fairly easy to use although there are some differences if you're coming from iWeb.  The way it was explained to me was that some of the things that made iWeb so easy to use, caused problems with the HTML code.  

    From time to time I tweak the site and I'd like to ask for some feedback from my readers to improve the site.   Are there things about the site you like or dislike? (If you like the site, go to the Welcome page and click on the Facebook "Like" icon.) What topics you would like to have me write about?  If you have a website, would you recommend this site?  

   Thank you for your support and I look forward to hearing from you. 

    Happy Hunting!
