got sources?

got sources?

As a result of last week’s fantastic Open Thread Thursday discussion – Genealogy Bloggers and Source Citations – Martin Hollick of The Slovak Yankee blog came up with what I think is a great idea:

How about a badge that bloggers could display in their sidebar that tells readers to contact them about source citations for blog posts?

Excellent idea! So I figured it would be fun to do a riff on the successful “got milk?” campaign from several years ago.  I even went so far as to research and download the font used for the print ads!

So you’ll see the badge above.  Feel free to copy it from the image above.  You should link it to your email address or your contact page on your blog.

In addition, I’ve create a public Picasa album with various images sizes for the badge. Click here to access the album.

About Thomas MacEntee

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.
