At the Armchair Genealogist this week, posts included the following: 

Each week I’m choosing four blogs that deserve a shout out, they will be in the form of 4 categories, Internet Genealogy, Family History Writing, a New Blog and a blog that posted a great old-fashioned family recipe. OK some weeks I choose more than 4 just because it to hard to pick just one, and it's my blog so I can change the rules. 

Internet Genealogy – a great genealogy or internet tip that will benefit any armchair genealogist
This week’s mention:

A Patient Genealogist shares a  website she finds very useful,  in her blog about the  Family History Archives . The Family History Archives is a collection of published genealogy and family history books. It is part of the Family Search website, and definitely a worthwhile online resource.

Writing Your Family History – great advice or information on writing your family history
This week’s mention:

Stories to Tell again this week offered a thought provoking and timely post entitled A Father's Day Challenge: Preserve Your Family History. This website offers family history book publishing services, you can also find some helpful articles to guide you through the process.  

New Genealogy Blog – we will tip our hat to a newcomer who impresses us right out of the box
This week’s mention:  

This week I have taken a shine to Nuts From the Tree. The author is  taking over as the family historian and learning the ropes from her Mom.  Love the approach of this new blog. 

Family Recipe - a blog that makes us want to eat, and offers up a great old-fashioned family recipe to share on Family Recipe Friday.
This week's mention: 

This week Swiss Steak, caught my attention. Not because I'm Swiss or that even this recipe is (Really why did it get its name?) but I remember my Mom making this often. You can check it out at Mascot Manor Genealogy. 
You can find more newcomers at Thomas' list of New Genealogy Blogs at Geneabloggers.  For other great reads, Randy at Genea-Musings offers the Best of the Genea-Blogs.  Greta does a great job at Greta’s Genealogy Bog, she offers the Follow Friday Newsletter each week, click here for this week’s edition.
