Problems Accessing GeneaBloggers Via StumbleUpon?


For the past several months, I’ve been using a site called when there are new posts here at GeneaBloggers. is part of the StumbleUpon site of social bookmarking and allows visitors to look at related items on the Web.

I use the site because I can post to Twitter, Facebook and shorten a long URL all at the same time. also lets me pre-post these messages as well as track how many hits each message receives.

Unfortunately, some users are having problems accessing the posts and the GeneaBloggers site via the links.  I’d love your feedback as to accessibility of the GeneaBloggers site – please leave a comment and let me (and other readers) know about any access issues.

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

  1. I can’t see any urls on my Motorola Razr phone so I know that if I am interested in something linking there, I have to go online to view it. Not user friendly, and easy to “miss” something that I really should see, but it’s not impossible to get to the blog if I want to. My phone works better with tinyurl.

  2. Several weeks (months?) ago I did experience the problem you describe, but haven’t since then. Since nobody else mentioned it and I’ve had so many ISP problems out in the boonies, I just assumed the issue was on my end.

    It loads fine for me now.

  3. Not having too much trouble, IE 8 user here. Sometimes I don’t know if it is the site I am going to, IE 8, Bill Gates, or just me. So, I start over. Most of the time, a fresh start works, helps to dump the temp files, I do that a lot lately, but just not here, seems to be everywhere that I am dumping, restarting, dumping, restarting.

    That said, since you had to change the template here, I cannot seem to find the blog list, or the suggest a blog or any of the other links at the top. Not sure you are done tweaking the new look or if it is me just not seeing the forest for the trees.

    There is now a menu with 8 different icons at the top including About, Genealogy Blog Listing, etc. This is where you should be able to access the other items.



  5. Thomas, can see them, but for whatever reason they are not hot. I surfed in this AM from Facebook and the words do not link. So, I opened another page in IE8 and surfed in from My Favorites, and still no links. Don’t know why – – I LOVE being special!

  6. Links on words work now, thanx

    Are there really icons?? Geeshh, don’t see any now and never did.

    Web site looks fab, by the way.

  7. I use Explorer and I’ve had no problems. I usually click on your Facebook links, and they work fine. Sometimes I need to click the compatability button, but I haven’t had to for your links to Geneabloggers.

  8. I had problems with and switched to I found it very easy to shorten urls, twitter, and post to facebook from there. I haven’t ‘clicked’ enough on links to give good feedback on consistency though.
