In a prior thread, Aaron suggested that we make a blogger family tree and Bryce gave his own information. It’s a fun question — who knows who, and how, outside of the loose cluster of LDS blogs that we call the bloggernacle?
I’m not particularly well-connected, I think. I went to law school with Greg Call and Steve Evans and Christina Taber (all bloggers), among others. I’m in the same ward as Logan and Amy Bobo. I was previously in the same ward as Greg and Cirila, Steve and Sumer, as well as D. Fletcher, Jim Lucas, the Bushmans, and a whole host of other people (some of whom occasionally drop by to comment here). Finally, Janelle from Let Your Mind Alone works right around the corner from me.
As far as relatives, I can’t offer much. I’m a second-generation member myself, and my family isn’t related to anyone. My wife does have about a million relatives in Arizona (she’s related to Joneses, Johnsons, Bunkers, and a bunch of the big Mormon clans), so she’s probably a third-cousin or so of Adam, but didn’t know him prior to blogging (there’s really no way to keep track of all of her cousins, and she only knows a small percentage of them). Surprisingly, none of the relatives or neighbors who she actually knows (quite a few, really) are bloggernacle participants.
And that’s my data point. Let the games begin!
