Good Bye 2013 and Hello 2014

On this last day of 2013 I just want to wish you and your families a very Happy New Year!!!

Once again:

Happy, Happy New Year!!!

I also want to share a recap of 2013 and my goals for this blog in this coming year of 2013.

This blog started as a personal blog and a place to document my own family genealogy and history but with time it has turned out to be a valuable resource to many. I just hope it continues to grow and help as it has been doing so.

 

Recap of 2013

  1. Ended the year with 445 Facebook Likes. We got 312 new likes.
  2. 2069 New Twitter Followers that is 1584 new followers.
  3. Had 18,547 visitors and of those 11,121 were unique visitors
  4. Email subscribers grew to 244 from 110.
  5. Sent out twelve ok eleven news letters I did mess one up (I think). Sorry.

Goals for 2014

  1. Keep in good health surrounded by my family.
  2. Continue to post articles, not daily but at least every other day or every two days.
  3. Continue to repost old posts so that new members can read them.
  4. Increase traffic to this website so that more people are aware of it.
  5. Continue to share posts on social media websites, facebook, twitter, google+, etc…
  6. Hope to find more ancestors than this year.

I just hope that  2014 will be a more productive year since I know this blog has helped many and continues to help people connect with their ancestors and each other. I have been very fortunate for the wealth of records available at FamilySearch.org. I just hope they continue to be available and to put more collections online. Once again thanks for reading and see you in 2014, have a very Happy New Years!!! Can’t wait for the tripitas tonight!!!
