What I Do Meme


I’ve started a new meme today and I’m hoping the genealogy blogging community will pick it up since I feel the knowledge that it can impart and share with the community is important.

The meme: called What I Do and you basically list what you use in terms of technology to either run your genealogy business or pursue your family history as a hobby.

Why is this important?  Very often – especially if you work at home like me – we operate in a vacuum.  We have no idea what other people are using unless they mention it in an email or a blog post.  Or we have to ask for a recommendation.

So take a look.  Copy and use the list below if you want to participate at your blog.  Use the words “What I Do” in the post title and I’ll list it here:

  1. Are you going to aggregate the results? I’d like a followup posting on trends, specific items that a majority have, etc.

  2. Martin

    I will be aggregating the results – probably after Tuesday when I return from the IAJGS conference in Los Angeles. I may run this in conjunction with an Open Thread Thursday posting where readers can discuss the results.
