52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy : 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?

What an interesting question?  There are so many different blogs that I enjoy reading.  I read most of my blogs on my ipad using my Flipboard app which is a wonderful way to read and enjoy different posts.  I'm not sure I can narrow it down to just one so....I am going to list a few of my favorites in no particular order.

Genealogy Tip of the Day
I am thankful for all of the little words of wisdom that Michael John Neill provides.  Each day there is something new to think about that can help guide your genealogy and family history research.  I can always take something away to help me be better.

Climbing My Family Tree
I am thankful for this blog because it is enjoyable to read and to get ideas.  The photos are beautiful and her design in creative.  I get ideas and use this as a tool for linking to other great blogs.

The We Tree Genealogy Blog
I love Amy Coffin's blog.  I get a lot of great ideas and advice.  I recently purchased her e-book entitled The Big Genealogy Blog Book which I have incorporated into my 2012 genealogy goals.  I hope her tips will help me improve my blog.  It was one of the first blogs that I read and still enjoy.

This is my go to website to find new blogs, blogging ideas and general information about genealogy and family  history blogs.  If it wasn't for this site my blog probably wouldn't exists. 

I am thankful for this blog especially for its Saturday Night Genealogy Fun events.  Every Saturday a new challenge is posted related to an activity related to genealogy and family history.  These tasks have helped me to work on my own family research.  One of my favorite posts that pushed my research was The Ancestor's Geneameme.
