Building a Genealogy Blog

I’ve started a series of articles on building a genealogy and family history blog on one of my other blogs, . In this series, I discuss how a genealogy blog differs from a normal blog and how to incorporate those differences into a blog. I also discuss the planning and structural process of building a blog and website from the ground up. The focus is mostly on using as the blogging program and platform, but the techniques apply to any blogging service.

If you have a genealogy or family history blog or want to start one, and you have questions, please ask. There are a lot of topics to cover on this subject, from figuring out how much this costs to choosing website tools to publish your family history information and resources. There are a lot of things you can include related to your family history research on your blog, but what do you include, what should you include, and how to include it are often overwhelming questions. Ones that I’m still dealing with. No topic is off base. I’ve even written about how to include dead relatives as authors on your posts. Not your typical blogging issue, is it?

This is an ongoing series with articles from this blog and from , my blog dedicated to helping people blog and use WordPress. Let me help you develop and design your family history and genealogy blog, helping to preserve your family history research and your family’s story for everyone to enjoy.
