I am here today to tell you it is a new day …. much like the old days … here at Onward To Our Past®.
An Old New Day At Onward To Our Past!
I was have a whole lot of fun writing my thoughts here and sharing information and insights. Having a lot of fun actually.
Then I listened to someone who told me I was ‘doing it all wrong’ and for the wrong reasons. Seems they thought that doing writing on the Internet only ‘counts’ if you do it for the God of Google, search engines, SEO, and other such focuses.
It quickly turned into a PITA rather than a joy. I was struggling to see how many links I could embed, how many photos I had to put in, what my word count was ……
I lost sight of why I was doing this! I was doing it to share my knowledge and experiences with others in genealogy and family history.
So …. from now on, I am going back to writing for fun and for my audience. Not for the masters of search engines and the like. If its hard to find me on the Internet too bad. All the effort wasn’t getting anything done anyway!
So …. I hope you enjoy the change. I will go back to my love and that is that I will write for fun, education, and sharing. Hints, tips, help, etc.
Always writing with my audience in mind …. so I hope you enjoy it!
Now …. back to the fun! And don’t forget you can always join me on Facebook Onward To Our Past too!
