During the last few weeks, I have been working on my presentation on blogging for genealogists. Thanks to the assistance of fellow genea-bloggers who gave permission to use screenshots from their blogs, the presentation is coming together very well. It will be a colourful presentation.
I wish I could highlight all the genea-blogs out there, but I can't; but I will point to places where the audience can find them.
The talk will be divided into two sections: reading blogs and writing your own blog. Not everyone will want to have a blog of their own but genealogists benefit from reading the work of others.
Some of the points I will cover
What is a blog and how does it differ from a web site?
Different parts of the blog.
How to find blogs
How to keep updated on postings - RSS feeds and readers
Different types of blogs with examples
Getting Ready to blog - Who, When, Where, Why and How
Setting up a blog
Tips concerning layout and writing
