Week 1 – Blogs: Blogging is a great way for genealogists to share information with family members, potential cousins and each other. For which blog are you most thankful? Is it one of the earliest blogs you read, or a current one? What is special about the blog and why should others read it?
I only started blogging in March 2011and started with lots of moral support from Judy Webster who has a number of excellent blogs.
Being a newbie, I also have spent a lot of time reading the resource pages at Geneabloggers and say thank you wholeheartedly to Thomas MacEntee for all his time and efforts, in compiling these resources.
I also spent a lot of time reading many of the excellent blogs listed on that site. I must also say thank you to everyone who have given kind support and have given suggestions on how to improve my blogs.
I now follow about 150 blogs, so picking just one is pretty much impossible for me. The joy of reading blogs is that, if you look, you can always find a writer/s on the topic in which you are interested.
Special mention has to go to James Tanner’s blogs, including his excellent one on TechTips.
There are so many wonderful blogs out there! All I can say is please keep writing them so I can keep learning from you all!
Thank you for participating in the Abundant Genealogy series. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for the compliment, Helen. As a fellow 'medical scientist + family historian', I enjoy reading your blogs. I wish I had some research in Kent. 🙂
