The Best of Genea-Musings in 2010 (My Choices)

I counted up the number of blog postings on Genea-Musings for 2010 -- 939!  2.57 posts a day, almost all of them original content (i.e., not press releases).  Of course, that includes almost weekly postings on Amanuensis Monday, Tombstone Tuesday/Tuesday's Tips, Not So Wordless Wednesday, Treasure Chest Thursday, Surname Saturday, Saturday Night Genealogy Fun and Best of the Genea-Blogs.
