Follow Friday: Around the Blogosphere April 22

Here are some of my favorite posts from the genealogy blogging community this week:

What Do You Mean It Isn't Free from the Minnesota Family Historian is an excellent discourse on the value of genealogical services and information and the actual behind-the-scenes costs.

Along the same lines, Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers was quite transparent in sharing information regarding making money in the genealogy field. Those who have a dream of doing genealogy as a full-fledged career may have their eyes opened to this economic reality. It is not as easy as Thomas makes it look!

Also weighing in the topic of making money in genealogy were Amy Coffin of We Tree Genealogy and James Tanner of Genealogy's Star.
