At this time of year many geneabloggers take stock of what they have achieved or not achieved in the previous twelve months and set themselves goals for the coming year. I have been reading several of these posts this week.
I feel that a lot of my geneablogging friends are too hard on themselves; several have reported on their successes this year but quite a number have lamented that they haven't achieved as much as they set out to do or that they haven't blogged with the frequency they envisaged.
You are a bunch of highly motivated people who have made great strides in the genealogy sphere. Let's share the good news.
Accentuate the Positive 2012 Geneameme
On a whim this morning I decided to throw together a Geneameme in which you can share the positive results of your Genea Activities in 2012.
I invite you to take part in this activity by responding to the following statements/questions in a blog post. Write as much or as little as you want. Once you have done so please share your post's link in a comment on this post or to me via social media. I will, in due course post a list of links to your contributions on this blog.
Remember to accentuate the positive
- please delete the statements that are not relevant to your situation.
