One of My Posts Makes The "Best of the Genea-Blogs" List!

I am so very honored (and still blushing) that Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings chose my article A Light That Still Shines as an article worthy of his "Best of the Genea-Blogs" column!

Each week Randy picks several articles that he feels are the best articles written from the genea-bloggers. This is a monumental task in my opinion! There are hundreds of genea-bloggers and articles written each week. So many great articles and great bloggers! Many of these bloggers have been blogging for years and have wonderful formats, stories, articles and information. Other's are new to the blogging world, and bring fresh ideas. To go through the posts and pick a few to make his list would be very tough indeed to do.

I ALWAYS read Randy's "Best of the Genea-Blogs" column as the articles he chooses are articles I don't want to miss! As I was reading his most recent column for the week of March 1-7, maybe you can understand my surprise when I ran across one of my own articles! Wow, was I stunned...

The most recent "Best of the Genea-Blogs" column is posted here. If you don't already, be sure to follow this column every week as Randy chooses what he feels is the "Best." They are articles you won't want to miss!

Randy, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for thinking my article was worthy of your column! With the multitude of articles and bloggers I am indeed beyond words having found one of my posts on your list! I am truly honored!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. You are worthy... in fact, every genea-blogger is worthy and it's hard to pick out the subjective "best of..." each week.

    Bloglines makes the task really east for me. i'm up to 430 blogs on thel ist, and I read every day for maybe 30 minutes - it probably average 100 to 150 blog posts a day. I use a quick "read it once" method to pick the ones, then write them down on a list.

    On Sunday, I go through my short list and pare it down (there's usually 20-30 on it) and write up thep ost - it usually takes 60 to 90 minutes.

    I love doing it because it brings traffic to my site and yours, and we both deserve it! And I can usually find your great post in my key word list.

    Did you get a Blogalanche in your blog visit numbers? That usually happens for all of us when someone provides al ink.

    Thanks for the link back - they all count!

    Keep up the good work -- Randy

  2. Hi Randy!

    Sounds like you have a great routine! It has to be so difficult to pick from so many blog posts. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment! I will check and see if I got that Blogalanche! :-) I enjoy your blog so much and again appreciate the recognition!
