Post #15,000 For Genea-Musings

My motto: “Life is brief – eat ice cream and do family tree first!”

A humorous factor occurred fifteen years and 6 months in the past (April 15, 2006) on my option to the ice cream retailer – I mentioned to myself: “Randy, possibly you possibly can weblog about one thing as soon as per week or so … about family tree, politics, sports activities, faith, you, know, your life.”
My spouse mentioned “Honey, that will most likely be fairly boring – who on the earth would learn what you write?”

So the experiment started, and 15,000 posts later (#15,000 was the Replace publish on Saturday morning) right here I’m – fortunately caught in a “routine” of writing two or three or extra weblog posts every day about family tree sources and outcomes on Genea-Musings!  Then there’s Fb and, Twitter, together with my virtually weekly participation on video (accessible on YouTube) in Mondays With Myrt! My spouse wonders what I do within the Family tree Cave each day for eight or ten hours! Heh heh.

Oh, I forgot, there’s my society conferences, society shows, Zoom conferences, and I even discover time to spend on on-line analysis (and really occasional repository analysis), getting into information and sources into my family tree database, watching Padres baseball video games on TV or at Petco Park, the San Diego State Aztecs soccer and basketball video games on TV, and the ex-San Diego Chargers soccer video games n TV. 

 There’s Life with Family tree! However, for me, there isn’t any Life with out Family tree! It is a part of me, who I’m, and have been for 33+ years.

In celebration of my 15,000th publish (that is over 2.7 posts per day on common, and over 970 posts per 12 months on common), I’ll take the remainder of the break day from … running a blog, not family tree. Or possibly not if there’s something attention-grabbing to weblog about. Tomorrow is one other day.

The statistics for 15.5 years of running a blog, from StatCounter and Blogger:

*  4,539,867 web page views (StatCounter since 2006)

*  12,963,644 web page views (Blogger, since 2010)

*  Blogger says I am getting about 130,000 web page views per thirty days, or about 4,300 a day.

Then there are the static Pages (see the hyperlinks beneath the Genea-Musings header) that proceed to pile up guests.  These depend on the customer and web page totals, I feel.

The statistics for my every day memes inform a part of the story:

*  Amanuensis Monday – 611 posts
*  Tombstone Tuesday – 79 posts
*  Tuesday’s Tip – 192 posts
*  Wordless Wednesday – 590 posts

Notice that the majority of these posts are about my very own family tree and household historical past analysis.  A few of the others are curation about blogs, document suppliers, conferences, and many others.
