Every Saturday night Randy over at his blog Genea-Musings
hosts a challenge called Saturday Night Genealogy Fun, a.k.a. SNGF. [I told you genealogy was fun, didn't I?] Well, this week's challenge is inspired by a post written by Tonia Kendrick on her blog Tonia's Roots
where she explains why an elevator pitch is necessary for your genealogy blog and tips on how to write one. You can read more about it here
. [But don't go till you read my pitch.]Here's what Randy challenged us to do:
1. Write an elevator speech for your blog based on Tonia Kendrick's Blog series, 31 Weeks to a Better Genealogy Blog
, #31 WGBG: "Write an Elevator Pitch for Your Blog."
2. Post it on your blog, in the comments on Randy's blog, on Google+, etc.
3. Leave a comment on Tonia's Elevator Pitch blog post
. [Lots of blog traffic link love here, folks.]
And my pitch is straight from my About Page
. You have
read my About Page
, right? If not, you should go visit it 'cause there's more where this came from, folks:For Your Family Story blog is:
- For those who are completely new to genealogy (newbies);
- For those who've just started researching with no or very little instruction & could use some help; and
- For those beginner to intermediate researchers who've hit a brick wall or two & could use some help.
The one consistent theme you'll see here is that genealogy is not boring. It's not stuffy. It's fun. At least, I'm going to try and make it fun. It won't be hard. I promise. Ancestors rarely disappoint with their antics, with their silly decisions, and with their poor choices. Most worked hard. Sometimes they were sad. But sometimes they were downright hilarious, at least in retrospect. But what they're not is boring and stuffy. [Even though most of the time they look boring and stuffy in their photos.]
