52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 25 - Blog Commenting

This weeks challenge was to :
Write one good, solid comment on at least one genealogy blog every day for a week. Sometimes we get busy and the genealogy reading we should be doing just piles up. The same thing happens with blogs. This week, take some time to read genealogy blogs. Select at least one post a day and establish communication with the author. Offer a compliment, a question or genealogy information you may have. This challenge provides a little love to bloggers and some new perspectives for researchers. Authors of genealogy blogs can use this opportunity to comment on comments, so to speak.

I needed this assignment. With summer family activities in full force along with the day to day workings of life, I've fallen a bit behind on blog reading and we won't even talk about commenting. So this week I put forth the effort to get back into the habit of commenting on postings that were particuarly enjoyable or that I had something to contribute to.  After all that's really the other half of what blogging (life in general for that matter) is all about - interacting with one another.

Thanks to Amy over at We Tree for developing this series and this week's assignment in particular and to GeneaBloggers.

  1. Our past is why we are now in the present. Its amazing, the men and women who make up our existance leave this earth and are so often forgotten. Yet without them, we wouldn't be here. I enjoy reading back on history and gaining knowledge about my own roots and others.
    Bless you.

  2. What I love about genealogy and internet is the ability to pick one another's brains. I browsed to this post of yours and then started working backwards. I got hooked when I started your Sorting Saturday posts. You've given me such useful suggestions (and a gentle Atta Girl shove). Thank you!
