Comment Challenge

I read a lot of blogs. Genealogy blogs, mostly, but a number of others as well, and I find myself adding more to my RSS reader regularly. Truth to tell, I can't begin to keep up with them all, but I love to visit each blog occasionally and scroll through to see what I've missed. Most of the time I scroll through the feed reader and just click through to a few enticing titles or a blog I haven't visited in awhile.

I don't leave comments very often, so when I read Kathryn's "Would You Care to Comment?" Challenge, I took it to heart. Having just recently reactivated my Facebook account to join the Genea-Bloggers group there, I discovered our little group has grown by leaps and bounds, so I've been visiting a lot of new blogs lately anyway. It's great fun to see the many ways people blog about genealogy. 

I ended up commenting on more than ten blogs, most of them new to me. 
I also added a few blogs to Blog Networks, and hope other Genea-Bloggers will join their networks so they'll get their feed added to the Feed Wall at Facebook. Some blogs which need additional readers are:
And now for something completely different, the ancestral spirits are stirring! There are 21 haunting tales of fact or fiction in the Carnival of Genealogy, 58th Edition, posted today at Creative Gene. Trick or treat!
