I’m pleased to announce that this blog is now a member of GeneaBloggers, an association of over 2,500 blogs on genealogy and family history, according to founder Thomas McEntee. (Check out the snazzy logo over there on the top right). I’ve been listed among the Alabama and Scottish-related genealogy blogs, naturally enough, and I will ask for a cross-listing among South Carolina genealogy blogs in the near future.
I’m delighted to join such a large community of like-minded bloggers and genealogists from whom I can learn and with whom I can share what I learn along the way. The sole requirement for membership in GeneaBloggers is that “you must either author a blog related to genealogy and family history or you are a reader of these types of blogs.” I’d say I meet both of these conditions. I’m writing a genealogy blog now, and have been and will be reading genealogy blogs in the future. I’m sure the GeneaBloggers blogs I find most interesting and useful will wind up on my blogroll soon.
The GeneaBloggers site includes a Blog Resources section with links to sites offering advice on topics such as customizing the look of your genealogy blog and finding free blog templates. There are also daily blogging prompts to stimulate thought and creativity and generate posts. I’ll be posting articles based on these prompts very soon.
In short, I’m happy to be a member of GeneaBloggers!
