Wisdom Wednesday - It's all about ME

This is being posted early because my blog is blacked out all day Wednesday in protest of SOPA and PIPA.

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again? ~ Winnie the Pooh

I love my blog.  I also love doing my research and finding cousins and blogging about it, and most of all, getting feedback from the blogging community.  

Unfortunately, I realized (after looking back over my blog posts for the past month or so) that I was losing sight of WHY I was blogging.

I brought this up to Laura, my Success Team partner, and we agreed that I should bring the focus of my blog back to my research to find more cousins and, more importantly, discovering more about the people who had a direct impact on the person I am today.

While I still intend to tip my hat to some of the more obscure celebrations on the calendar, I want to try to do it in such a way that I work some of my research into it a little better.  (Of course, if the mood hits, there is a possibility that I will post something WAY off topic - just never know).

For example, today is Winnie the Pooh Day.  No, Winnie and I are not related (though we do resemble each other from the neck down occasionally - except I try to wear pants).  I was able to find a quote that was fitting for genealogists:

Before beginning a Hunt, it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it. ~ Winnie the Pooh
For a bear with no brain, Winnie the Pooh sure had some pretty stimulating thoughts.

As a blogger who blogs strictly family history, I applaud your decision...clap,clap! I will be blacking out tomorrow too and I'm going to TRY to stay off the Internet. We'll see how that works out...LOL!
