Lisa Louise Cooke - Bless Her - Interviews The footnoteMaven

A big thank you to Lisa Louise Cooke (Genealogy Gems Podcast & Genealogy Gems News) for inviting me to be a guest on her podcast. The interview is today's post and podcast entitled Genealogy Blogging Wisdom: Be Youself - Everyone Else Is Already Taken.

Lisa, the Diva of the podcast, is an extremely skilled interviewer. She has the ability to put you at ease, become your best friend, and convince you you're just hanging out and getting in some girl talk; in the space of a few short minutes. That's real talent!

It was my privilege to spend some time with Lisa. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. The Pacific Northwest misses you Lisa, come back for a visit! I'll leave the lights on for you.

That was fun! Thanks for mentioning me, too! You even pronounced my name correctly and you've never even spoken to me - now that's talent - no one says it right!

Thanks, Lisa makes it look easy. Of course I'd mention you!

O.K., now you've freaked me. I never thought there was any other way to pronounce it.

fM - terrific interview! It was almost like getting to meet you in person, which I hope to do someday. I really enjoyed listening to how you got started blogging, and especially your comment about how blogging makes us rich in friends. So very true!

I also look forward to meeting in person. I'm glad you enjoyed the interview.

Like Popeye - I am what I am. One of the richest geneabloggers in the geneasphere.

To receive the Footnote Maven 'artistic treatment' is an honor! Love it! And be careful what you wish for...we have lots of relatives in Washington and visit every so often. I'll be looking for that light.

What a great podcast! Of course I already knew of your fabulosity a long time ago but it was a great opportunity for others to learn more about you. And thanks for talking about genealogy blogging and how it has progressed - we need more advocates like you!

Thanks Thomas. I love geneablogging and I am so looking forward to what's next. The next great innovation. What will it be, where will it come from? Until then I'll just ramble on.
