One of my resolutions this year is to start using Genealogy prompts to help me with my blogging. There are a lot of them out there! I found these prompts through Amy Coffin’s blog and have decided to give them a try this year.
Week 1 – Blogs: Blogging is a great way for genealogists to share information with family members, potential cousins and each other. For which blog are you most thankful? Is it one of the earliest blogs you read, or a current one? What is special about the blog and why should others read it?
Right off the bat I can answer this question. It would have to be Daniel Dillman’s post on his Indiana Dillmans blogiversary yesterday! He inspired me to put myself out there and start publishing this blog! I also credit his blog with guiding me to these 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy prompts! So, kudos to Daniel!
I have read many genealogy blogs over the last several months. I joined Google+ back when it was still in testing and love the idea of using circles. I still have a Facebook account…but I use that for games and keeping up with siblings/cousins/nieces/nephews/friends etc. Google+ is where I go to find out what is going on in the real world! I have found many genealogists are on-board with Google+ and have put their postings to their blogs out there too. I have enjoyed reading them with great interest! I never realized how many genealogist are out there – blogging away! You are all doing a great job! So keep them coming fellow bloggers!
