What I’ve Learned About Blogging — So Far….

So, this is just a brief post about what I’ve learned about genealogy blogging so far:

1. Starting a blog in the summer is a bad idea. This is a project best started in the midst of a cold/wet/rainy winter.

2. Trying to find things to blog about that anyone other than myself (and maybe a few family members) would be interested in reading is incredibly intimidating.

3. Once you get side tracked and take a break from blogging it is EXTREMELY hard to get started again.

That’s it….so far. I’m still really new at this so I’ll have a lot more to learn as I go along. But I had to pick this back up and start somewhere. Guess these brief observations were as good a place as any. Hoping to do something of more substance in the very near future!

Addendum: Apparently #4 would be to not blog late at night because my editing skills are far worse then (which would explain why this was posted with the title “What I’ve Learning About Blogging — So Far…..). And to think I edit for a living….sigh….!

  1. The great thing about blogging is that you can do it on your own terms. Write when you feel inspired by something, otherwise enjoy your Summer. The words will come when the time is right.


    • Thank you for the encouraging comment. I think I’ve been afraid that I would lose all the people who signed up to follow the blog if I let it flounder so soon. But then….since its summer….maybe most people wouldn’t have time to spend reading blogs any more than I’ve had time to be writing them! 🙂
