Things She's Learned About Blogging

One of my favorite non-genealogy blogs is Scribbit: A Blog about Motherhood in Alaska. Anyone who's read my blog for any amount of time is sure to understand why I'm a fan: the child from Alaska enjoys reading the work of the mother from Alaska. Even though I never lived in Anchorage like Michelle Mitchell does, there is just something about living in Alaska that is an automatic bond between people (not unlike being a geneablogger!). Michelle is a very well known Mom Blogger, and if you know anything about blogs beyond genealogy, you'll know that Mom Bloggers are huge in the social networking/technology world. Oh, yes, and here's a fact that's sure to interest a number of you genealogy fans: she used to work for a Nobel laureate at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. doing research on the Civil War!

Today Michelle wrote an interesting post entitled "Things I've Learned About Blogging." I thought it fascinating, not only from the perspective of a blogger myself, but also in retrospect to all that happened with the geneabloggers at Southern California Genealogical Society's 2009 Jamboree last weekend. Her eight things she's learned is sure to touch off a spark of knowing nods and "A-ha's" from those of us who've been blogging awhile. And if you're new to blogging, well, it's good know what to expect down the road. Savor her reflections!

Thanks Miriam for pointing out Michelle's great post and blog. Very often we are so focused on blogs dealing with genealogy that we can't recognize other blogs with content that is important to what we do.
