    The Love is Growing

    I’m “It!” Always did love the game of Tag, and now I am honored to be tagged TWICE with the “I Heart Your Blog” -- by Sheri Bush at TwigTalk and by Linda Steinstra From Axer to Ziegler. Thank you for the kind words and your vote of confidence.

    In the spirit of passing it on, I understand that the recipient:

    • must link to the person who gave the award
    • nominate seven other blogs and link to them
    • leave a comment on each of the nominated blogs
    • and can add the logo on his/her blog
    What a great way to move around the blog world discovering new blogs and meeting new bloggers. So many wonderful blogs have already been tagged that I will try to focus on blogs where I haven’t seen the badge and maybe share a few new-to-you sites:
    • I met Craig Manson of Geneablogie fame this summer at the Southern California Genealogy Society Jamboree and couldn’t wait to get to my computer and catch up on his blog. His recent experience with a treasure of family memorabilia mirrors my situation and I enjoy hearing how he is dealing with the challenge.
    • Speaking of the SCGS Jamboree, Paula Hinkel did a great job keeping attendees updated with information and addendums for the event at the Jamboree Blog. This blog is definitely worth bookmarking if you plan to attend next June.
    • As a Legacy Family Tree user I also regularly check in at the Legacy News Blog to see what tips and techniques Geoff Rassmussen has discovered. His clear and direct explanations make Legacy a real favorite for many of us.
    • Archivist Rebecca Fenning posts wonderful family history articles and photos at A Sense of Face providing a great connecting point for her family. I love the little vignettes she writes with each photograph.
    • Sally Jacobs is another archivist who keeps a helpful and interesting blog at The Practical Archivist. Her How-To articles are filled with tips for preserving and understanding family photos and papers.
    • Sometimes, a blogger needs a change of pace (or sound) and that’s when I head over to Tipper and Blind Pig & The Acorn where streaming music, photos, and stories all provide a virtual visit to Appalachia – a place I’ve never been!
    • And for a little city life, I enjoy Lisa’s stories of ethnic life at 100 Years in America. She makes me realize what a lot of heritage I have yet to discover in my husband’s Slovenian family history.
    It's a tribute to the blogging community that there is so much talent and mutual knowlege being shared. I can only imagine the months and years ahead!
