I have particularly enjoyed incorporating social media with my genealogical interests. I have to say that I have learned more in the short time that I have experimented with social media than I have in several years. Twitter has provided access to so many wonderful experts in the genealogical community.
I have become a more effective blogger because of @GeneaBloggers and many people I follow. I used to yearn for people with whom to collaborate who felt the same undying passion as I do. I will be forever grateful for how people like @familytreegirl welcomed and encouraged me and took me under her wing. She is also solely responsible for encouraging me to write for The Examiner. I did not know I had so much that I could contribute.
One of the most fondest experiences that I will forever cherish was the opportunity to meet in person, @LCAfricana. She invited me to be a panelist at the Heritage Days Symposium at the Penn Center this year. I am so amazed with her work. She is powerful. I am forever learning about myself from those I follow. They see things in me that I have overlooked. I am so excited about being able to discover ways I can serve.
I hope I will be successful in the coming year with being able to inspire others to connect in this way. I want others to have the same joy of sharing and learning.
