Follow Friday - Favourite Blog Posts from 25 May to 28 June 2013

This will be my last Follow Friday post for a while. I have been quiet on this blog over the last few months as I have been using much of my genealogy time to meet my monthly Motivation Monday goals. I will be taking on some new challenges outside of genealogy in the second half of 2013 so I am cutting back on some social media and blog reading.

I still hope I can create at least one genealogy blog post here each month. 

This month I have decided to use Storify to show my favourite blog posts from 25 May until 28 June 2013. I got this idea after seeing how Amy from Branches Leaves & Pollen used Storify to present the weekly Trove Tuesday posts from across the genealogy blogs. Please be sure to take a look at the Trove Tuesday page at Amy's blog to see how effectively she is using Storify for this purpose.
