I ran across a Blog that may be interesting especially to those of you from the Midwest. It is titled: "Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog -- Genealogy and family history in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan, and neighbor and feeder states."
This is fun one to explore. One of the more interesting features is the way it handles tags (tags are the subject headings associated with each post so you can do some easy searching for topic of interest to you). On the right of the screen is a list of the most frequently used tags. The unique aspect is that the tags are listed in different sized type, with the largest type associated with the most frequently used tags. You can see at a glance where the most interest is.
