I’m sorry I don’t have a source for this word but I define Bloggerhoea a compulsive outpouring of stories via blogs. I suspect the term was a play on another word that describes an outpouring.
I know that I heard a genimate use Bloggerhoea several years ago but I did not make a note of who that was. The first mention of the term I could find was from a blogger in 2008 who said “i think i’m suffering from bloggerhoea. lock me in a room with internet connection + com with all my med notes and tell me that i only can get out if i memorize all of my notes you’ll find me blogging 99% of the time.”
A while ago Amy Johnson Crow blogged about How to Avoid Genealogy Overwhelm.
Amy described Genealogy Overwhelm : “So many ancestors; so little time. With the number of ancestors doubling with each generation, it doesn’t take too long for it to feel a bit much. Add to the mix all of the different types of things you want to find and the projects you want to complete and you have a recipe for genealogy overwhelm.”
Thanks to Amy for permission to use her description in the Geneadictionary.

Attention Deficit Genealogy Disorder
My friend Chris Goopy shared a new word and definition on Facebook recently: Abibliophobia is the fear of running out of reading material.
That prompted me to conjure up another word Ageneaphobia – the fear of running out of ancestors to research.
Thanks to the lovely folk on Maryborough Family History Society’s Facebook Page for granting me permission to use their image.
This post on Google+ came through from Lineage just now and I had to share it straight away. I know that I suffer from this affliction on a regular basis.
