Top Five Then and Now

Top Ten Posts on A Patient Genealogist


Summer is a GREAT time to slow down and reminisce. School is out. Vacations are filled with making memories. And your priorities can really snap into focus. The New Year comes on the tail end of the busy December season and I'm always lacking clarity. But this summer, I'm making plans for the rest of the year and into the next. Part of that involves taking a look at the road I have traveled so far.

Five years ago today, I posted the most popular posts on my blog at that time. Sadly, I only had a top four.
As you can see, my popular posts had a trend. Tech Tuesday!


There are two ways to answer what are the most popular posts now. The first can be found in the side bar. There I keep the running list of which posts are the most popular in the past month. It changes so often, I can't ever hard wire that list into a post.

But there is a Top Five of all time I can share.

Heritage Scrapbooking: Family Tree Pages
Heritage Scrapbooking: Family Tree Pages
Book Release- Power Scrapbooking: Get Caught Up, No Matter Your Scrapbooking Style
Heritage Scrapbooking: Color Schemes Part Two
How Could I Miss That Clue for Agnes Anderson?
Tombstone Tuesday: When Do You Post a Second Photo on Find A Grave?

Notice how some of the newer posts have great graphics to go with them? That's a new trend on my part, rather than my readers.

I also notice that scrapbooking dominates the all time list. My recent series detailing how I cracked through a brick wall hit the top this year! And a Tuesday tip type post has continued to draw interest.

I thank all the scrapbookers who keep my page alive and interesting in the world of genealogy. I also love my genealogy fans and friends who find different posts of interest as well. We'll see what strikes the fancy of my readers in the coming years.

  2. I love your scrapbooking posts, too, and always have good intentions of following up on them. :)

    I have been really enjoying your graphics. Could you maybe do a step-by-step tutorial? For example, I love your "breaking through... brick wall" graphic. Actually, I love them all!

    1. Dana... I have this on my task list I promise! I'm working on a series of videos of a youtube channel and that is one of the videos to come. I appreciate your patience. I promise it's coming.
