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.

Because she has given me permission to use her images I am adding this definition from Twisted Twigs and Gnarled Branches.
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.
