P1090521I’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.”



Back in the Geneacave

Mr and Mrs GeniAus have been away from home for two months on a journey that was part pleasure and part Geneajaunt (that part was probably pain for Mr GeniAus). While we were travelling we managed to meet up with some cousins and visit ancestral sites, archives and libraries.

Before I took off on the journey I was able to schedule enough posts to the Geneadictionary to cover my absence from home.

Now I am back in the Geneacave  I have done a bit of houskeeping on the blog and scheduled a few more posts to carry it through the Holiday Season.

In my Evernote account have a healthy list of new terms to be added to the Geneadictionary in 2015 so it is definitely an ongoing project. Now that I am on the lookout for words and phrases to add it is amazing how many I manage to find.

I am so grateful to all those generous Genimates who provide content for this blog.

Having a Chat

As I believe that blogging is a two-way street I appreciate comments on my blog posts.

At the moment I have my WordPress L plates on and can’t quite work out the security settings for commenting.  Please bear with me as I try to get my head around this feature.

While I want to deter spammers I also want to make it an easy process for my genimates to have a say.
