Follow Friday - My Top Five, A Year In Review

Since this will most likely be the last Follow Friday I will be posting before Christmas and New Years, I wanted to take this opportunity to mention the top 5 blogs that I followed throughout this past year. They have contributed immensely to my personal development as a blogger as well as keeping me abreast on both blogging and genealogy news. I couldn’t have possibly chosen only one, as each blog has inspired me very different ways. I look forward to each one, and would miss them in my blog reader daily for their individual contributions to my continued growth.

Geneabloggers – Thank You Thomas, you are my go to site when I need anything answered on blogging. In addition, your expansive understanding of the genealogy industry makes your blog all that more valuable to a genealogy blogger. Thanks for being the genealogy ringmaster.

Genea-Musings – I always find Randy two steps ahead of everyone else. He has his pulse on the news of the day. I enjoy Randy’s amusing and entertaining style of writing.

Genealogy Gems Podcast- I enjoy Lisa’s down to earth approach to reporting the genealogy news. I especially enjoy her interviews with industry leaders. Watch for my review of Genealogy Gems Premium membership in a future post, January 2010.

Problogger- Darren Rowse offers up plenty of insights into managing a blog. I can always draw some helpful tips from his daily posts.

The Genealogy Insider-  Diane and the staff of Family Tree Magazine offer a continuous string of well written and informative articles that offer many helpful insights.

The above blogs are on the top of my reading list. I want to thank everyone for their entertaining, educating and helpful posts this past year, I look forward to reading more in 2010.
