Family Tree Magazine's explanation of the life of a Genealogy blogger is oh so accurate!
" Creating and maintaining an award-winning family history blog takes genealogical savvy, a modicum of technical expertise, a way with words and pictures—and, above all, stick-to-itiveness. That last lesson came home to us as we reviewed past winners and contenders in our annual “Family Tree 40” roundup for this year’s best-blogs list: Even a fine blog, alas, can become moribund after a few years, or at least distressingly sparse in its postings.Please read on and see what other blogs were chosen this year. You might find one you haven't yet read!
It’s little wonder that even the best blogs run dry sometimes. The life of a genealogy blogger, after all, can be a constant tug of war between writer’s block and the urge to blog, writing about research and doing research, online life and real life with all its daily demands and distractions.
So as we celebrate this year’s crop of 40 award-winning blogs, let’s tip our collective hats to these bloggers who stick with it and keep sharing their wit, wisdom and family history finds with us."
My blog was also honoured as one of the Top 40 Genealogy blogs in 2012 and 2011. While I didn't make the 2010 list of Top 40 Genealogy Blogs I was mentioned as a blog worth reading. Here's hoping I can keep up the tradition!
