Okay. It's been a while since I've visited Geneabloggers.com's website. So sue me. BUT...
Did you know that the ever-industrious Thomas MacEntee has a very hip search box capability in the sidebar of his website? But this is no ordinary run-of-the-mill search box. Oh no. [Thomas never does anything ordinary or run-of-the-mill.]
Thomas has a fantabulous search box that can search the 2000+ Geneabloggers' blogs on Geneabloggers.com. He even invites visitors to search surnames in his fantabulous search box.
You're probably thinking, "Duh. It's been there for a while, Caroline."
And my reply? "When was the last time you entered a surname that you've been researching in that fantabulous search box to see if other geneabloggers are researching and blogging that surname?"
Now, more common names like, oh I dunno like Smith, are not gonna be easy to search, but I tried a less common surname in my line, Blacketer, and BINGO! I have some peeps to contact.
"Hello? Yes. Um. You don't know me, but I noticed you are a fellow Geneablogger, and I noticed that you blogged about some Blacketer ancestors..."
Yeah. Duh. So go over to Geneabloggers.com and look for some geneabloggers blogging about the same surnames as you in that fantabulous search box.
Thanks, Thomas! =)

Well you've already answered all my sputtering objections so there's nothing to do but thank Thomas for being ... I don't know ... our mayor? I'll go check those surnames now. -- Diane
