Genealogy Journal - 09/23/08

It was a pretty good blogging day - this makes 9 posts, I think. I also got my CG101 syllabus finished and sent off.

I read my emails and blogs, then went off searching for blog fodder. I looked first on Geneanet, but got frustrated by the site. I finally wrote a post about the GeneaFreelancers.com web site, which sounds like an interesting opportunity for seekers and specialists. Then I finished the editing of my CG101 syllabus, made it into a PDF and emailed it to the CGSSD folks. I remembered that I hadn't posted about the CVGS meeting on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, so I did that and added another indexing post too. Then I put four posts on Randy's Busy Life just for good measure (and to reduce my email Inbox stack). I ate lunch, then filled out all of the genealogy cruise forms and made our hotel reservation in San Juan.

After reading blogs, I posted about a DNA question at the CGSSD meeting, hoping someone would give me a good answer (Blaine did, later in the evening). I decided to burn off more of my email Inbox, so I did that for over an hour. I wrote some draft blog posts for the weekend, too. After reading email and blogs again, and Facebook too, I went out front and picked weeds until dinner time. After dinner, I cut the front lawn, and came back to read email and blogs before I watched the Padres game (they lost 10-1 to the Dodgers, and it wasn't really that close). After the game, I read email and blogs, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 1.5 hours doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hour on the CG101 syllabus, 1.0 hour on the genealogy cruise stuff, 0.5 hour on Facebook, and 0.5 hour working on Geneanet. I counted the emails I read (110) and the blog posts (110) on Bloglines today.
