It's not too late to be a charter member . . .

. . . of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits, a group of bloggers with a special interest in cemeteries. Already founder Terry Thornton of Mississippi has accumulated a number of associates, including Jessica Oswalt of rural Michigan, Amy Crow of central Ohio, Julie Cahill Tarr of Chicagoland and Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, Minda Powers-Douglas of the Quad Cities, Illinois and Iowa, and Chuck C. of Christian County, Illinois.

I look forward to learning from their hard-won experience (I'm thinking rain and snow and scorching sun and poison ivy) and hope that being association members will help the bloggers involved to persevere. I see that Julie has already created an interactive map of cemeteries in Bloomington-Normal.

Thanks for the mention --- I'm delighted that several bloggers from your region have started dedicated cemetery blogs as their contributions to The Association of Graveyard Rabbits.

And I'd like to extend to you and your readers a very special invitation to become members of the Graveyard Rabbits. As you say, it is not too late for a Charter Membership! Please go to for a more formal invitation, a list of membership requirements (no fees), and an application for membership form. I would love to see more Midwestern bloggers among the membership.
