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 PoohFor a bear with no brain, Winnie the Pooh sure had some pretty stimulating thoughts.
