Happy 5th Blogiversary to Me!

I'm pretty sure 5 years of anything on the internet equals about 150 years in real time, so I'm pleased to see how long this whole blogging thing has lasted for me!  Who knew!

Thank you to everyone who reads and comments - I do enjoy having a forum to share research findings and photographs and I value all your comments.

And now, my favorite yearly tradition, the oddest search terms people have used to find my blog:

1. Empty Cat Bed

Aww.  This makes me sad.  :-(

2. Getting Undressed

It's true.  Once I wrote about getting undressed, but only to point out how I manage to trip and fall whilst doing so.

3. Money Maker Flower

?  If i had one of those, I'd be sitting in a much nicer chair right now, that's for sure.

4.  Queen Victoria Funny

For her sake, I hope she was.

5.  Septum Keeper

I don't even want to know.  I wrote about my nose once but this just seems a bit odd.  Would one be keeping something in one's septum or would one be keeping one's septum in something else?  Or does one want to be sure to keep one's septum.  I do know that I like mine right where it is.

6. Thufir Hawat

What?  Don't all of you have posts that would lead this person to your blog by typing this in?  Just keep calm and keep the spice flowing.

7. just like she suddenly became

I'm worried about this person.  I feel like they are concerned about someone but don't know what to do.  She became what?  Agitated?  Angry?  Happy?  Sad?  Indifferent?  I hope they figured it out.

8. my diaper pins

So they are searching for "their" diaper pins?  I didn't realize people still used them - I figured that binder clips would work fine for that because they aren't pointy.  I've solved a lot of problems with binder clips.

9.  grim litany

I see I might need to lighten up a bit in my posts for the coming year.

10. mickey mouse tombstone

This is what I get for blogging both about genealogy and family trips to Walt Disney World.

And now, off to start year 6!!


  1. Congratulations, Leah! The search terms that bring people too your blog are way funnier than mine have ever been! I'm jealous. I hope you have a great 6th year!

  2. Happy 5th blogiversary Leah. How you managed to do it, I'd like to know your secret. Loved some of the search words, they sure are funny. Good luck as you move into your 6th.
