I spent some time visiting blogs that I don't always visit since I read the posts in my Google Reader. Well now that I am self-employed and have a bit more time (yeah, right!), I wanted to participate in Kathryn Lake Hogan's challenge Fun Friday - Would You Care to Comment? and make 10 comments over at some of my favorite blogs.
Fun Friday - Would You Care to Comment?
Hey cousin! I forgot to tell you Happy Thanksgiving yesterday so now I do so belatedly. Thanks for this challenge - I am going to see if I can hammer this out and then post about it. Cheers!
2. Virtual Dime Museum
The Lacy Cape
A lacy cape crusader? This is amazing - I am wondering the jacket was in such disrepair that his mother was trying to hide some damage?
3. West In New England
Would You Care to Comment? (Post #400!)
Congratulations on Post #400 Bill!
4. Shades of the Departed
Abraham Bogardus - Twice Told Tuesday
I have many Bogarduses in my tree beginning with Anna Bogardus (1725 - 1787) who was my 7th great-grandmother. I tried to find some ancestral information for Abraham but over on Ancestry I find conflicting information. Given that he was born in Dutchess County, I would think he would fit in my tree somehow but right now I can't see how.
5. Walking The Berkshires
We have autumn here in Chicago, short-lived as it is, but I miss the rolling hills of my home back in New York! I will be in the Hudson Valley in less than two weeks but I fear that the leaves will have all fallen by then.
6. Nordic Blue
Just Call Me Anna
I found this post very interesting and now I am wondering if anyone has done a Top 25 table for Dutch names for boys and girls!
Also - welcome back. I missed you all those months when you weren't posting!
7. Small-leaved Shamrock
The real Annie Moore remembered at last
Thank you! I've been following Meagan's progress with this project and I am glad it has finally come to fruition.
8. Little Bytes of Life
Happy Blogiversary To Me
Congratulations - I am a big fan of your site and I also want to thank you for all you've contributed to the genea-blogger community!
9. Family Matters
A Different Messenger
Thanks for highlighting this - I am a big fan of "cross platform" apps and it looks like Meebo might be the answer for some of my IM issues. Right now I am partial to Yahoo but I despise all their marketing downloads. I also find MSN Messenger (or whatever they are calling it this month) difficult to maneuver around.
10. Granite In My Blood
Hello Cousin Midge
I checked out Inspiration and wondered why you used this to create the chart vs. other apps. that are available.
