Late last night, I reviewed the list of posts on my blog reader program, Feedly.com. This morning as I got going early, I had 18 new blog posts from the 280 or so blogs I am following. Ten of the eighteen were from commercially sponsored entities. Of the eight remaining blog posts, seven were from well-known, established bloggers. There was only one post from a "family blogger," that is, someone writing about their own family research. I only subscribe to a relatively few non-genealogical blogs, but of the 18 posts that showed up this morning, seven of them were from non-genealogical blogs such as my subscription to the JSTOR Daily.
The most remarkable thing about the posts was the number. From time to time, I will post some more observations and see if there is a trend or if I am merely acting like Chicken Little.
