Blogging Sabbatical!

ImageChef.comPast-Present-Future is on a "short" vacation. Despite the fun beach umbrella photo, this is not a travel vacation. It is more like a blogging sabbatical.

I am currently taking part in the Boston University Online Genealogy Research course. So far the course has been great! The problem it, that it is much more time consuming than I imagined and I am finding it difficult to find time for blogging on top of the course workload and my family responsibilities.

I plan to be return to blogging in full force at the end of April, 2014 (once the course ends). I hope to blog a few times between now and then, so do check in! They did ask us not to blog about the course, so I will not be sharing my experience in the class on this blog.

In the meantime, if you missed some of my old posts, this is a great time to check them out! Do leave me comments when you stop by. I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Oh, too bad you can't even post a review of your experience in the course! I'd love to know!

    Best wishes on your course work, Smadar. I hope you get everything out of it you were seeking.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts start back up again--I certainly have been missing them.

  2. I'll echo Jacqi -- I'm eager to hear your thoughts about the course.

  3. Smadar,

    Wow! This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for you! Please do tell us how liked the course.

    I want you to know that your blog post is listed in my Fab Finds post at

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks Jacqi, Wendy and Jana! I'm going to check again what exactly we are not allowed to blog about. My understanding is that it's about the content, but I'm not sure if we can blog about our experience/feelings. If you have any questions about the course, I'm happy to answer them privately through email or IM. Thanks Jana for the Fab Find mention! Have a great weekend you all!
