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.

  1. So….I put this up on my blog and in the past two days I’ve had three inquiries for more information. Is this cousin bait or what???
