As mentioned earlier, the National Genealogical Society has a brand new blog at http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org. It will provide more content sooner, convenience, readability, reliability, and will also provide a comments section.
While not mentioned in the announcement, the same NGS blog also has an RSS feed that makes it very convenient to read the latest news in an RSS newsreader. The RSS newsfeed is available at http://upfront.ngsgenealogy.org/feeds/posts/default.
For an explanation of RSS newsfeeds and RSS newsreaders, see my earlier article, "A Really Simple Explanation of Really Simple Syndication (RSS)," at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/a-really-simple-explanation-of-really-simple-syndication-rss.html.
