The year 2011 started with two very interesting blogging events. The first was a Carnival of Genealogy (101st Edition) that focused on Genealogy Research / Writing plans for 2011. I read many of the posts with great interest. They were perfect for inspiration and fascinating to see what others hoped to accomplish. They really got me thinking about what I want to accomplish in 2011.
The other Blogging Event that really piqued my interest was Week 4 of the 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History. This particular week focused on the home. Bloggers were asked to describe the house they grew up in and mention if it was still there today. As a house historian I was excited every time I saw a new post on this topic.
Both of these series got me thinking about what my goals are for 2011. Just what do I have up my sleeve for 2011?
I have tried to keep my goals for 2011 on the small to manageable side. With the NERGC conference in April, I'm tied up the first quarter of 2011.
The newsletter would come out monthly and would focus on the things that I love - house histories, cemetery research and New England genealogy. Think of all the exploring and photographs I could take while preparing content for this newsletter!
Let me know if you like this idea and what topics you would like to see covered. I hope to get it started by July.
So that's my big plan for 2011!
