kinexxions is two!

Two years ago today, I wrote my first blog post, which was no masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a beginning. So, now, can I say I'm one of the Old Timers?

It was while lurking on the blogs of those Old Timers, and being inspired by them, that I decided that, hey, I could do that too! And I'm so glad that I did. It's been fun, educational, challenging, and immensely satisfying. For me, one of the best parts of blogging has been making connections, not only with extended family, but with other bloggers and readers. There is a definite sense of community, a sense of belonging to something good, that cannot be surpassed.

In September, as part of the Genea-Blogger Games, I wrote a summary of what kinexxions is all about and just a few days ago reviewed my "best" or favorite posts of last year, so I'm not going to include another list of "favorite" posts here.

Thank you everyone for reading kinexxions, for leaving your comments, for providing help and moral support when needed, for the inspiration, and for the great research tips! It's been an interesting two year journey. It's not over. Hopefully the best is yet to come!

Congratulations, Becky! Yes you can join us "old timers" now, but I prefer to think of us as "young bloggers" :)

Congratulations Becky! In my mind you've always been one of the old timers --- you were online and already established when I posted my first blog in April 07 --- and I'll never forget the warmth and welcoming support you old timers gave me! Thank you for your work and wonderful articles --- and may this just be the start of kinexxions!

Regards,
Terry Thornton
