Wander project the actual wander project…

Today is more focused on a poll than a true wander. Although I suspect I have a couple of sojourns to take today. It is heading into the time of year that can be hard. My father passed away five years ago in June. There were many that passed before him. All four of my grandparents died long before my father passed. I miss all of them for different reasons.  There are several questions I am covering today just to figure out what people would like to see.

1. Do you want me to continue publishing the mix of pictures that I have been for the past five years?

2. Should I focus more on old pictures?

3. Should I focus more on new pictures?

4. Should I focus more on my Grandfather’s Pictures?

5. Should I focus more on my father’s pictures?

I’ve been using Mylot has sort of feeding ground for my tech posts. Sometimes when I have a concept or an idea that is buzzing around, I post it here first. But I hadn’t stopped and considered the go forward path for the family history project. Today is that day. I will resume the sharing of pictures tomorrow and will begin to incorporate the changes and recommendations over the next week or so.

PS one of the reasons why I share 12 pictures each time, is that I am sitting on 40,000 pictures and burning through those 4 or 5 at a tie would take longer than I have left to live!

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

  1. Since you have so many old pictures, it is good to post them for the past always has its own interesting side after all, but it’s always fun to see new things around you as well. I will enjoy any picture you share here… Well, even I miss a lot too though…

  2. I say post what you feel like posting. I understand that sounds like a generic answer. But we will enjoy whatever your decision will be. The old photos of your family are close to your heart and very special. If that is what you want to share, then do it.

    Sorry I cannot fully answer your questions. I can only say that when you post what you are passionate about, others will know it and enjoy your passion as well.

    I understand about certain times of the year being hard. But you knew that already. I was told a few times to stop looking at the calendar. But how do you do that? I don’t focus as much but I still have days that knock the breath out of me. Always will when we lose our loved ones.

    • I’ve been told that, (don’t look at the calendar) as well. There are days that I rejoice! There are days when I am wistful. It doesn’t mean anything, other than I have lived.

      Thanks, Carol, your thoughtful response really helped!
