I will be starting a new WordPress blog soon dedicated to my family genealogy. I will be writing extensively in a new series about the step-by-step process of starting this new blog to help you all learn about what goes on behind the scenes in developing a specialized blog.
And what is so special about a genealogy blog? Well, that’s what I’m asking you!
If you have a WordPress blog dealing with family history and genealogy, I want to talk to you! Better yet, I want you to talk to me.
There are a lot of issues to confront with a specialized blog like the one I’m working on for genealogy. The family tree, for example, can be generated from most genealogy software programs, but blending them into a WordPress blog takes some work. There is also the issue of including current information while protecting the privacy of living relatives. This is just the challenges I face as I think about them. I’m sure you’ve run into more.
So, here is your chance to be a part of helping me, which will eventually help others. If you have a WordPress blog dealing with genealogy, tell me how you did it. Share with me, and others, your tips, advice, the challenges you overcame, how you overcame them, and what we should know to help make creating our family history blog.
