I have decided that it is about time to get back to some blogging because I am starting to feel rather lazy now for not having blogged regularly for so long.
When my father passed away I had no time or energy to blog and to be honest time had been an issue for quite a while before that but I insisted on continuing with my daily posting schedule even though it was a struggle. Having taken a break I now don’t feel quite so bad about not posting every day, so I probably won’t be. After all it is my blog so I make up the rules.
The other problem had been a lack of things to write about. Again time was an issue here and I hadn’t really been doing much family history, so as a genealogy blogger it was sometimes a struggle to come up with things to write about or to find time to research the things I wanted to write about.
I have started to do a bit of family history again, although I am getting a little frustrated by frequently running into dead-ends where a visit to an archive or record office is needed before I can continue. The problem of course is that I don’t have the time to actually visit an archive or record office at the moment, but I do know that time will come.
I should probably give my blog a bit of a makeover, I think the design is looking a little tired now although I am sure that the majority of you are reading this through a feed reader of some description and will never see my blog on the web for months on end.
As for content, I have lots of ideas about what I want to write about, but in general I want to focus more on Sussex. It is where I live, where the majority of my ancestors and relations lived and where my expertise (such as it is) lies, so it seems natural to me that I should concentrate on Sussex. I know I will sometime stray over the county boundary and occasionally leave these shores, but I would like the focus to be on Sussex.
Whether this actually happens is different matter, but watch this space…
