For the last three years I have done a little job for Inside History Magazine in which I collate a list of 50+ blogs you need to read, the magazine editors look at the list and prune it down to the final 50 which they publish. It takes me ages to check out several hundred blogs and check them against a list of criteria that I have collated with the help of my genimates.
This is the third year of the list so I guess that it is now an established geneaevent, in case it is I have already started adding more blogs to include in the running for next year. As soon as I finished my task I found a few more new blogs. Geneablogging is alive and well in Australia.
After a chat with the magazine editor it was decided to have a little change in focus this year. We only included a few foreign blogs (there are plenty of best of lists for them already) and had an intentional bias towards genealogy and history blogs from Australia and New Zealand.
My digital copy of Inside History Magazine arrived yesterday and I was excited to see the latest list in print. There you will find example of blogs that are challenging, charming, chatty, classy and clever. There is something for everyone.
I commend to you the Inside History Magazine 2014 list of 50 Blogs you Need to Read.
