I’m On The FGS Voice Team

FGS Voice

Just announced today, I will be a contributing author at the FGS Voice blog which contains news from the Federation of Genealogical Societies.  Beside being the National Publicity Chair for the FGS 2011 conferences – Pathways to the Heartland – in Springfield, IL in September 2011, I am now assisting FGS with its overall marketing efforts.

If you don’t already follow the FGS Voice blog, I urge you to bookmark it, favorite it or subscribe to it! I have lots of new posts coming out about marketing and technology for genealogical societies and you won’t want to miss out on the discussions!

Article – Blogs: Easy Internet Presence for Genealogists

Genealogical Speakers Guild

The November 2010 issue of Speak!, The Online Newsletter of the Genealogical Speakers Guild is available. Inside on pages 5-6, you’ll find my latest article entitled Blogs: Easy Internet Presence for Genealogists.

In the article I explain how professional genealogists and genealogical speakers can leverage the easy-to-use features of a blog to meet their business objectives.  In fact, a blog is so much easier to create and maintain than a website, that some businesses have opted to create an Internet presence using the blog platform that mimics a website.  I bet that some websites you’ve visited are actually blogs on the back-end and you didn’t notice the difference!

The newsletter is available only to GSG members. Please consider joining the Genealogical Speakers Guild today!
