The Bluster About Blogging

It was inevitable that there would be some magazine or online articles, or presentations to local societies or conferences, about genealogy blogging.

Alan E. Mann has an online article at http://www.alanmann.com/articles/blogs.htm that covers all of the bases very well.

He provides a list of sample genealogy blogs that included a few that I have not visited, but I will [BG]. He provided a link to Genea-Musings that a number of people used today - that's how I found Alan's article!

Read the whole article. alan knows a lot about using the computer for genealogy research.

This was very interesting to me, since I am the speaker at the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego (CGSSD) on Saturday, 17 March at UCSD. See the www.cgssd.org web site for location, time and directions, plus a summary of the talk and my biography.

My topic is "Genealogy Blogging - Soapbox or Service?" I completed my Powerpoint slides over the weekend and made my handout yesterday. I will describe my presentation after it occurs on Saturday.

Thanks for mentioning this article Randy. It's really well written and I'm sure I'll refer others to it the future.
