Happy Birthday, Blog!

Today is the one-year anniversary of the launch of Remembering Rochester. Twelve months and 103 posts later, I'm still enjoying the effort, so I'm going to continue writing this blog. I hope you have enjoyed it as well, and I appreciate all of the comments that have been posted thus far. Every extra tidbit of information that comes from readers' memories enhances the posts and makes the blog more fun for everyone who reads it.

Remembering Rochester has had 1,035 unique visitors in the past year, and they have paid a total of 3,417 visits to the site. They come from 43 different states and a couple of foreign countries. Readers with Rochester area roots are all over the map and still interested in their home town, it seems. If you know of anyone who would enjoy reading Remembering Rochester, I hope you'll pass the link along to them.

Now, I'd like to ask for some feedback from readers. If there is a story or topic having to do with the history of Rochester/Rochester Hills/Avon Township that you would like to read about on Remembering Rochester, please tell me about it! I won't promise to write on every topic suggested, but I'll cover as many as I can in the spare time that I allow myself for researching and writing for this blog. I will continue the Main Street Stories, Vanished Rochester and Subdivision Stories series, and I have a couple of new ones in mind that I may launch this year if time allows. Feel free to make suggestions for future topics by commenting on this post. If you would like to share a story idea, photo, or other suggestion with me directly, e-mail me at rochesteravonhistory@gmail.com.

Again, thanks for reading and commenting. Comments let me know that somebody is out there, reading, and as long as that is the case, I'll keep writing! I hope you continue to enjoy Remembering Rochester and share it with family and friends.
