Often, I receive invitations to participate in Carnivals. I don’t often participate. It may be that I’m not good at following suggestions, or it may be that I’m not creative enough to relate my blogs to the carnival topics.
Imagine my excitement when I realized that there was no way out of the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy:
New Year’s Resolutions! What plans do you have for your genealogy research next year? How about for your blogging? No groaning or whining now. Write ’em up and let us know!
No more foot dragging, here are my resolutions for genealogical research:
1. Enter all the information from the BOX into my database. No exceptions, no cheating.
2. I will file all the paperwork in the proper place, not in piles on the floor, desk, or in any convenient box.
And for my blogs:
1. I will post on either GrannyPam or Granny’s Genealogy every day.
2. I will finish posting all the data from my “old” genealogy site to Granny’s Genealogy.
This seems like a tall order to me, which will require much discipline. I often find myself searching around the internet or a library for information, when my research goals would be better served by organizing the information I have gathered.
Time to stop and get on with the factory work of genealogy!
