I was picked by Flip-Pal and Thomas MacEntee from Hi-Definition Genealogy and Geneabloggers.com to participate in the Simple Gifts Blog Hop!! I have a ton of projects and ideas for blog posts for this Flip-Pal, and if everything goes to plan, I'll be documenting each and every blog post by video. With my iPhone. It's gonna be a technology-packed vlog-fest.
The Simple Gifts Blog Hop will run from next Friday, November 4, 2011 through Friday, November 25, 2011. And the other lucky participants are as follows:
The Educated Genealogist
Find Your Folks
Marian's Roots and Rambles
For Your Family Story
Heather Wilkinson Rojo
Julie Cahill Tarr
And? You know how I mentioned in my It's Time to Change the Game post about putting a Smartphone in the hands of the young and unleashing them in retirement homes and cemeteries?
What I was trying to get at is that putting technology into the hands of the young and letting them record family history would be such an awesome idea. It'd get them interested in *gasp* genealogy. It'd make their own family history relevant to them.
So, with this Blog Hop, I decided to put my technology where my mouth is thanks to Flip-Pal and Thomas. I'm going to be able to put some technology into the hands of the young. Okay. It's one young person, my daughter, and she only agreed to one video post. But we'll find out just how easy it is to use Flip-Pal.
I'm so excited! I have a lot of other ideas for projects with this scanner, and I can't wait to show them to you! Are you ready? [I am. Well, after I get my hair and nails done. And maybe buy a new outfit. Ohmigosh. I'm gonna be on video!!]
Thanks, Flip-Pal & Thomas!!
