New Year – New Blogging

2 Jan

Last year wasn’t a particularly good year for me or my blog so thank you to those who stuck with me last year, but what better time than New Year to resolve that I am going to make 2012 a better genealogy blogging year?

It is my intention to return to a daily blogging schedule this year. Time is still going to be an issue so I am not sure that I will achieve an 100% success rate on this, but I need to aim high to stand any chance succeeding.

I need to get more organised and achieve some time savings in the whole blogging process to maximise my time but most of all I need to learn to sit down and write, rather than worrying too much about what I should be writing or what else I could be doing instead.

I want to be tackling some new topics and making it more useful to my readers, in particular I want to make this blog much more Sussex focused. Whether it is news, walking or my own family history I intend to focus more on Sussex, hopefully not to the extent that other English counties don’t get a look in, but much more than I have done in the past.

One of my ideas is to introduce a new category of posts focusing on family history in Sussex, hopefully fulfilling my intentions to make this blog useful and informative. I also want to be writing more about aspects of Sussex history and life, providing more background on the county that was home to the majority of my ancestors and fulfilling my blog’s tagline, Exploring the Lives and Landscapes of my Ancestors.

    Good luck with your plans, John. I like the idea of focussing on your own county – and it has got me thinking along the same lines as a possibility for a new direction in my postings, perhaps concentrating on where I live now – the Scottish Borders which is rich in local and family history. This is what’s so great about blogging – the stimulation it inspires and the sharing of ideas. Thank you.

  2. When I first started blogging I didn’t blog at all about my area because all my ancestors came from other regions. But once I posted a bit of local information (about Kahnawake) I found out that lots of people from the States and even further afield needed information and it became a large part of my site and a very rewarding one!
    Good luck with your new approach,
