In Which We (Finally) Discuss Taboo Stuff

18938728_72a862bde4_zThere’s a discussion going on about making money from genealogy blogs (and genealogy in general).  In my opinion, it’s long overdue.  I’m tired of tiptoeing around these issues.

It started in the comments on Joan Miller‘s Genea-Bodies: The New Somebodies.  Then it continued with tons of frank comments on Marian Pierre-LouisFacebook pageMichael Hait also has a thoughtful post, and now Thomas McEntee is starting a whole series on the topicLynn Palermo also revived an old post for further discussion.

I’m not writing a whole post about this today, because I’ve said plenty in those comments and on Facebook already, and it’s time for me to do some actual paying work.  But if you’re not reading this stuff, you really should be.
