Thank you for 7 years of reading

Today marks the 7th birthday of the History Repeating blog!


It’s 7 years ago today that I published my first History Repeating blog entry.

I picked out a photograph of my Great Grandmother Clara Gilbert, with her siblings, parents, nieces, nephews, and Grandmother, standing outside the family home from about 1911, and decided to blog about it in my first post.

I’d like to thank you all for sticking with me to read my posts, and for all the comments, and sharing of my articles.

In those moments of doubt in December 2007, as to whether anyone would find my posts even the slightest bit interesting, I’m glad I thought ‘oh, sod it’ and clicked ‘Publish’. I’ve enjoyed writing this blog, and have found that it’s been a great way of connecting with more relatives, and helping to get opinions on areas of research that I am unsure of.

If you’re toying with the idea of blogging – do it! Start your blog in 2015.

Thank you.
