Inside History – 50 Best Blogs List
As I mentioned here I really love Inside History magazine. Because I live in the country my subscription issue usually arrives a few days after it’s release. I’m usually getting impatient for it, after my twitter friends start tweeting about the content. I was really hoping that Issue 10 would arrive in the mail today, for no reason, other than to look at the beautiful photos as well as read the varied articles. The cover photo is always a highlight.
But my reasons for looking forward to checking the mail changed when I read Western District Families Blog. Merron mentioned there, that Jill Ball had compiled a list of 50 Best Blogs To Follow in Inside History and she was understandably excited to see that her blog was on the list. But the big surprise to me was to read her comment that this blog has also been included as a best blog to follow. I’m still very surprised to have been included but feel deeply honoured to be mentioned alongside what I consider to be amazing genealogy and family history blogs. I wasn’t at all surprised to see a few other blogs that I enjoy following were listed.
Congratulations to all bloggers who made the list. I’m looking forward to checking out some of the blogs there that I haven’t read yet.
So far I’ve just had time for a quick flick through the magazine, but my first impression is that this issue looks to be the best yet. I’m most looking forward to reading an article about The Salvation Army written by Barry Gittins. There are quite a few links to The Salvation Army in both maternal and paternal branches of my family. I have used their fantastic Archive Service many times.
