This has been a landmark year for ABG. One year ago this week, we launched the new website, replacing the Blogspot we had been using for several years with our own custom website. We started off by sharing why we eat blackeyed peas and greens for New Year's and then let you see a little of how that tradition actually happens. We have added tales from The Duchess, The Judge, and our resident gentlemen of fiction, the Meigs Men. We've discussed the Southern-ness of Walt Disney and the rabbit family from Goodnight Moon. We finished our commemoration of the sesquicentennial of the War Between the States. We've talked history, tradition, and agriculture. We even took a trip to Savannah.
And that was just on the blog.
On the social media front, we've added a few while the old ones have gained in popularity. We can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. We're experimenting with some multimedia on Soundcloud and YouTube. We even have boards to peruse on Pinterest.
Mostly, we'd like to thank you. Without readers, followers, friends, likes, and whatever other category you fit in, this would be one big electronic diary. You make this endeavor fun and your feedback is appreciated.
As we look forward to 2016, we invite you to join along with us again. And if you are enjoying what you find here or on our social media sites, please share us with your family and friends. The more, the merrier.
Thanks, Y'all! And Happy New Year!
Historian, self-proclaimed gentleman, agrarian-at-heart, & curator extraordinaire
