Six Years and Over 2000 Posts

Today is the 6th anniversary of Steve’s Genealogy Blog!  I would have forgotten all about it if Jim Sanders of Hidden Genealogy Nuggets hadn’t left me a congratulatory comment.  Jim, in turn, noticed that it was my blogiversary via the notice at Geneabloggers.

During the past year I’ve done a bit of traveling, visiting Italy, Monaco, France, Spain, Tunisia, Haiti, Mexico, Massachusetts, Illinois, Utah, California, Texas, Florida, and New York.  As a result, my blog has sometimes seemed more like a travelogue than a genealogy blog.  Still, this blog is a convenient place for me to describe my travels so that my family and friends can share my journeys.

During the past year, the most popular posts on Steve’s Genealogy Blog have been:

  1. Changes to the Public Death Master File (DMF) and the Social Security Death Index (SSDI)
  2. Bearded Iris
  3. Water-Lilies at Filoli
  4. Hydrangias in Bloom at Filoli
  5. The Vincentian Institute in Albany, New York
  6. The Homestead Act of 1862
  7. The Old Town Marketplace in Warsaw (Rynek Starego Miasta)
  8. A New Look at Immigrant Passenger Manifests
  9. The Angel Raphael
  10. Flowers of El Yunque Rainforest, Puerto Rico

Looking at the most popular posts, it’s interesting that only one post in the top ten (Changes to the Public Death Master File (DMF) and the Social Security Death Index (SSDI)) was written in the past year; all others in the top ten are older posts.  It’s also interesting that the most popular posts are photos of flowers!  Perhaps I should write a blog about botany instead of a blog on genealogy.

According to WordPress Site Stats, Steve’s Genealogy Blog is receiving an average of 729 views per day this month, but that doesn’t tell me much about how many unique visitors this blog attracts each day.  One interesting fact is that, while Word Press Site Stats reports that my blog has been receiving more and more views each month, the site Alexa.com reports that my traffic rank has been getting lower and lower <Sigh!>.

When I started this blog, I tried to link to other genealogy blogs, but I could find only a handful.  I was so desperate to find other genealogy blogs that I even linked to a blog where the author mostly wrote about his dogs!  Geneabloggers now lists over 2,500 genealogy blogs.

The purpose of this blog is to document my family history.  The blog has been successful in that goal and I’m pleased to say that, in the process, I have been able to reconnect with “lost” branches of my family.  And, that has made it all worthwhile.
