This morning I'm joining Thomas MacEntee's Jamboree panel, "Blogger Summit I - Beginner to Blogger in 60 Minutes," to talk about my first year of genealogy blogging.
As I think about some of the questions Thomas poses in this session, it's clear that geneablogging has helped my family research and best of all linked me to a warm and wonderful community of other geneabloggers.
The biggest unexpected dividend of having a blog is that my Gen X nieces and nephews (the plural is nieblings according to a friend of mine) have gotten more interested in our family history via my blog entries and Facebook posts.
I've put a poll up on the right about geneablogs that will run through Jamboree weekend. Since I'm from Chicago, I invite you to vote early and often.
On Saturday I'm also presenting my session, "Think Like an Archivist: Finding Hidden Genealogical Records in Libraries and Archives." Feel free to post comments or questions below.
