A few announcements:
Ten years ago today I uploaded my first posting on my new WordPress blog.
And here we are 520 weeks and 638 posts later! Yes, I’m still here though I have to admit that I have not been too active lately.
This blog is full of photo stories about our travels during the last ten years but we have been locked down in Crow Canyon since mid-March and so we don’t travel anymore and I seldom pick up a camera these days.
I still plan to post once in a while — perhaps once or twice a month — but I would like to also announce that I have turned most of my attention lately to another of my favorite interests — genealogy — and have decided to build another blog focusing on my family history.
Long-time followers of my blog will recall that I have combined my genealogy interests with travel as we visited the places where my ancestors lived — my Thelers in Germany in 2012, my Bolducs in Paris in 2014, my Muckles in Northern Ireland in 2002, 2009 and 2019 and in Australia and New Zealand in 2011 and in New York and Canada in 2007.
Now I am concentrating on my Dwyers and McAuliffes who left Ireland and settled in San Francisco long ago.
My new blog is called The Dwyers of San Francisco and you can find it here.
My great grandfather James O Dwyer, born in Tipperary, Ireland in 1844; died in San Francisco in 1896.
One more announcement before I close this post: One of my long-time followers, Disperser, has recently posted two slideshow guidelines on how to get back to our precious WordPress Classic Editor and avoid the horrors of the new Block Editor.
Highly recommended. See here and here. I followed Disperser’s tips to produce this post.
You can find that first post I published way back on October 10, 2010 here.
Oh, and thanks to all who have followed my blog all these years!
