#10 - "Family Recipe Friday - Bunny Buns" - Two food posts made it into the Top 10 here and this is an Easter favorite in our family. My mom used to make them for us and I now make them for my family. A nice bread with a hint of orange.
#9 - "Sentimental Sunday - A Senior Class Picture with No Yearbook to Call Home" - Hmmm...beware before reading this. I let a 10 foot tall 500 lb skeleton fall out of my very own closet with this family tidbit. You have been warned...and no laughing at my hair!
#8 - "Wordless Wednesday - My Aunt is So Going to Kill Me" - My aunt probably won't be cheering (or twirling flaming batons) that this post did so well. It surprised me too, but what else can you expect with such a beauty!?!
#7 - "Treasure Chest Thursday - Another Reason I'm Lucky" - Oh a genealogical gold mine bestowed on me by my mother-in-law! And I rescued it from it's slow demise stuck in a "magnetic" photo album.
#6 - "Remembering Veterans & Veterans Within My Family" - So good the first year, I reposted it the second year. As a vet, I'm incredibly proud of all the veterans out there and those in my family that served. I was delighted to be able to add on to that over the past year too! Although I still need a picture of my aunt in uniform (ahem...hint, hint, Aunt Cathy!)
#5 - "Motivation Monday - Cherie's Got Her Groove Back" - How despite being pulled in all different directions by volunteerism, volunteering one hour to a friend gave me the motivation to refocus on my family and genealogical goals!
#4 - "Sunday Supper - Guinness Stew over Colcannon" - My desire to find and create Irish food that was actually good ended here with a new family favorite. A creation of my own for Saint Patrick's Day and, well, I impressed myself with my own mad-skills.
#3 - "The Peshtigo Fire - A Miracle From the Ashes" - The Peshtigo Fire occurred the same day as the Great Chicago Fire, but is only a footnote in history, but it's not a footnote in my family history. After a week of posts about the fire (and the Chicago Fire paled in comparison), I ended on this positive note.
#2 - "Military Monday - Vietnam Virtual Wall Searching for Pictures" - I posted about my cousin, Michael Paul Brown, and ended up getting contacted by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. An incredibly awesome project. They are trying to get a picture to go with every name on the Vietnam Wall. There's so much more to this post than I can briefly tell here. I'm glad that this post ranked so high. I hope it means that more pictures are being sent in!
And the #1 post of All Time.....
"Tech Tuesday - FilmScan35 I Negative/Slide Converter" - I was a bit stunned that this was my top post. It hadn't been until recently. I can only imagine that this post's popularity increased over the Holidays as all good genealogists got their very own negative converters from Santa. I guess Santa reads very untechnologically sound reviews!
Well, that was a fun trip down memory lane. I'll be excited to see what posts will be at the top next year!
Thanks for reading and have fun tending those roots!
