Follow Friday: Carolina Girl Genealogy

Purely by chance I stumbled across Carolina Girl’s blog.  I was searching something genealogy-related (hey, what can I say, I’ve slept since then!) and ran across her post “Blogging + Cousin Bait = Mystery Picture Success!”.  It was such an enjoyable read that I started looking at her other posts and now I subscribe to her blog as well as following her on Twitter.  She has an honest, unpretentious writing style that appeals to me as a non-professional genealogist.  And I absolutely adore her “This Week On My Family History Calendar” posts.  It’s such a unique idea!

And, Cheri, if you’re reading this, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU!!!  Your encouragement to start my own blog was the last push I needed to take the leap and do it!

  1. Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog! I feel I have been a slacker in writing this summer with the kids home from school. I need to get on the ball again!
    Good luck with your blog! You are doing great!

  2. Wow – what a great recommendation. I'm going over to have a look now. Welcome to Geneabloggers!! I like your Disclosure statement…note to self…must do one of those one day 🙂
