Would You Care To Comment? A Genea-Blogger Challenge

Earlier this month, Kathryn Lake Hogan posted the 'Would You Care to Comment?' challenge at her blog, Looking4Ancestors. We were each to make comments on at least 10 blogs we read.

Like at least one other Genea-Blogger, I started well, but didn't keep track! Oh, dear!

This morning when I received the last reminder, I was tired from a great, but long, day yesterday at the local Tri-Stake Family History Seminar, 'Finding Your Roots'. I had planned to spend this morning finishing up some filing, but instead of working, I spent the morning cruising the 'net catching up with genealogy blogs, mostly, but not all, written by Genea-Bloggers. Lots of interesting stuff here - from the serious to the (almost) silly, and the sublime (Randy's vacation!).

Here is a baker's dozen of blogs I commented on today:

Greetings Diane,
Reading and commenting on blogs is so much more fun than filing! I'm glad you made the deadline for the challenge.
