I have a confession to make, don’t get excited, it is nothing scandalous or salacious and probably won’t come as a surprise to some of you, but I am pretty appalling at communicating. I appreciate that blogging is not just about publishing content, but also about community involvement and building relationships, and I am just not very good at those.
If you were to ask me why I would probably lay the blame on a lack of time, and whilst there is an element of truth to this it is more of an excuse rather than the reason. I guess the real reason is a cross between laziness and not being that outgoing a person.
So let me take this opportunity to apologise for my lack of involvement in the community and slowness to respond to emails and comments, and tell you that I am going to try harder in the future.
Starting today I am going to put aside some time each day for commenting, replying to comments and dealing with emails. It is true that I don’t have a lot of spare time, but I am sure that I can spare 15 to 30 minutes a day, it is after all part of the whole genealogy process, so I will still be able to count it as doing my family history.
