Who I am and why I’m here

I have decided to start a blog based on my interests in historic sites, my travels, graveyards/grave sites, photography, and chronicling future endeavors involving such things. Instead of keeping a personal journal, I hope to engage with others based on my interests as well as experiences. This post is step one in the Zero to Hero challenge here at WordPress.

The topics I will go into detail about are the historic sites I visit, as well as the interest I have in getting involved in local historic restoration efforts of local communities.

I would love to connect with others who have similar interests and goals. I would love to see other bloggers completed or in process projects associating with historical sites or generally antiquated objects.

If I successfully blog throughout the year 2014, I would have hoped to accomplish forming or getting involved in an online community promoting the efforts of maintaining & restoring grave sites that are meaningful to local communities that typically will not receive help monetarily or get the volunteers to accomplish such tasks. Being a new member of AGS [Association for Gravestone Studies] I wish to learn from others who are involved in such efforts. As well as doing massive amounts of research!

Cheers to day one!

  1. Hey, this is a very interesting and inspirational blog you’ve started. Can i ask, are you a conservator by profession? I look forward to your updates.
    Kind regards,

    1. Hello Viktoria,
      I am a hobbyist looking to make the professional move to conservationist. I enjoy restoring old things, and learning new trades. This is definitely an area that all encompasses my interests. I believe having a passion for something allows us to take projects and turn them into something truly special and meaningful. I truly enjoy the idea of contributing to a community or historical site that may otherwise go unnoticed and unaided. Hopefully that answered your question.

      Thank you for reading!

  2. The name of your blog is so cute. I think there are some really interesting old graveyards in certain parts of the country. We live in Texas and in Galveston is a very unique one mostly above ground. Quite a few photographers have used it for photo sessions. I could never do that for some reason it seems wrong. I would like to go there and take some pictures of some of the grave stones.

    1. Thank you! Sounds like some pretty nice scenery near you. I totally understand where you’re coming from regarding photographers doing shoots in graveyards, I would be hesitant as well! If you make it out to a graveyard or two, be sure to post. I would love to see some shots!
