Hello Big Beautiful Blogospere!!

Hello readers out there in the virtual world of Family History Blogging.   I am very excited to finally be joining many of my wonderful friends and colleagues in the blogosphere.   I look forward to sharing the goings-on in my research, teaching and all that is my passion for family history.
To start off what I wanted to do was tell everyone about some of my favorite blogs.  I know the authors of many of them personally or really, really hope to meet them someday.
You will see as I discuss each one of them, how and why they are important to me.
I am going in alphabetical order according to the list under the Favorite Family History Blogs to the right, that way there hopefully won't be any glaringly obvious favortism.  Believe me it was hard enough to limit it to the ones that I did!  There are many, many amazing bloggers out there and this list only contains a few of them.
The Everything Guide to Online Genealogy: A complete resource to using the Web to trace your family history (Everything Series) Let's start with the About.com Genealogy Blog by Kimberly Powell .  She is referred to as the "Genealogy Guide" for About.com and that she most certainly is!  She regularly provides guidance to all sorts of subjects related to genealogy.
She is also the author of the book The Everything Guide to Online Genealogy.  What I love about her blog is that she always describes things in a very user-friendly way and I can always learn something new from one of her timely posts.
Thanks so much Kimberly for sharing your knowledge!
