A couple of blog posts in GenieLand recently got me thinking about updating my blog. The first was Jill Ball’s (alias GeniAus) post “Trove Tuesday – Anonymous?” in April. And then, in a very timely post this week, there was Kate Vasicek Challis’ post on GeneabloggersTRIBE called “About Me Pages are Important for GeneaBloggers!”
They caught my attention like a smack up the back of the head.
For various reasons I did not want to put my name on my blog. The most obvious reason is that the Internet can be a cruel place and at the start of my blogging life being too exposed made me feel uncomfortable.
However, over the past couple of years I have found my little genie world is rather focussed, friendly and fairly self-contained and I am feeling more at ease.
