On July 19, 2007, I made my first blog post at ThinkGenealogy.com. This Saturday will be the 1 year anniversary. This has been a great experience so far and I am pleased that so many have stopped by to both read and contribute.

My web host uses AWStats to track site statistics and below you can see the first year report:

Note that the week of June 17 I was on vacation and the blog went down which results in the low number of visits for those six days.
The following countries have over 100 visits:
- United States – 1,833
- Canada – 127
- United Kingdom – 119
- Netherlands – 111
- Australia – 104
In the United States, there are visitors from each of the 50 states as well as the Washington D.C.:
So far, this site is most popular in California and Texas.
The top 10 posts for the last two months are:

I am looking forward to another year of thinking about genealogy and innovation with others in the genealogy software community.
