I ask this because GeneaBloggers will be out in full force at the Southern California Genealogical Society’s Jamboree this coming weekend (June 26 – June 28, 2009) in Burbank, California and I will be marketing our blog list like crazy!
Not only will I and more than 30 other geneabloggers be in attendance, in the exhibit hall there will be a Tech Zone where attendees can walk up and use computers equipped with free access to on-line genealogical sites and more. Also, there will be free wifi at Jamboree so those with laptops and netbooks may want to check out various genealogy blogs.
If you have a genealogy blog listed in the blog roll to the left, I strongly recommend you do the following before this Friday, 26 June 2009:
- if you haven’t posted in quite some time, create a post or two about your family history or current projects
- consider creating an introductory post about yourself and why you decided to create a genealogy blog
- think about a permanent welcome post (either specifically for Jamboree attendees or in general for all new readers) at the top of your blog*
* For Blogger users, the best way to create a permanent post is to a) first create a post in the normal fashion then b) go back and in Edit mode “pre-date” the post using the Post Options link and setting the date to July 1 or some date in the future. For WordPress users, in the Publish section select Edit in the Visibility section and click “Stick this post to the front page.”
