Genealogy Journal - 03/15/09

Ah, the Ides of March! I watched my back all day. Nobody said "et tu Randy" because I refused to go to a meeting or be in a group at church. Can't be too careful on the Ides of March.

On the other hand, I kept my nose down and the fingers on the keyboard most of the day, except when it was feeding time or TV watching time. Blogger posted the 3/14 SDGS Meeting Summary about the time I had my rice Krispies for breakfast. My email and blogs were read before I got cleaned up and off to church at 9:30 a.m. I was home by 11:30 ready to go to work on the "Best of" post.

The Best of the Genea-Blogs - March 8-14, 2009 took awhile - I'm finding more nifty articles because more are being written by increasingly proficient genea-bloggers. While writing it, I listened to several of Lisa Louise Cooke's podcasts, especially the interview with Steve Nickle of FamilyLink and the interview of Mark Tucker on the GPS Chart. Excellent reporting and interviewing by Lisa. I'm going to try to listen to more podcasts. The Nickle interview resulted in the post Lifting the Skirt on, which I scheduled for later in the afternoon. After Twitter and Facebook, I started on my Carnival of Genealogy entry Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977) which I scheduled for later in the evening. It was still not dinner time, so I worked on more posts for next week when I'm away.

At 5:30 p.m., I went in and watched the World Baseball Classic game for awhile (the USA won) and read the paper, and Linda fixed Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes and Carrots for dinner. Yum. I was back on the computer by 7:30 pm. Spent the next 90 minutes writing blog posts for the rest of the week, and still have more to do. At 9 p.m., I went in to watch Desperate Housewives and then at 10 I washed the dishes, then came in and edited the Genseek post and wrote this post. At last count, that's 11 posts written today (7 to come during the week). Just the genea-blogging fool, eh?

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on T/FB, 0.5 hour listening to podcasts, and 6.0 hours writing blog posts.
