I love the idea of weekly blog prompts. I rarely expect to actually write on any weekly topic (it was only a few days ago I made a goal of monthly posts). Yet something about Amy Coffin’s series for 2012 captured me. It’s probably the concept of abundance. We are in a time of scarcity…economically, ethically, nutritionally. We are also soaked in abundance…of information. How we deal with that abundance is up to us. With that in mind, I have to consider what blog is my favorite, when I have so many to which I return, again and again, and so many that I read once and move on.
Despite her recent medical leave, I’d have to cite Pat Richley-Erickson’s DearMyrtle blog as one of my favorites. Ol’ Myrt started back when I was writing my first fan web page. I have found her posts informative, concise, and level-headed. She will often touch on some of the bigger news in the genealogy community without bombarding her readers with everything that comes through Geneapress or a string of the thousands of blogs that have sprouted up. I appreciate that.
Of course there are others, but I’ll leave those to others joining in the fun of abundant genealogy. Enjoy the abundance.
