    How to Write for Blog Carnivals, Each One Teach One COG

    The May Carnival of Genealogy gives bloggers an opportunity to share what they know best with the theme How to: Each One Teach One, and I can't wait to see what topics genealogy bloggers will come up with. Just imagine the collective wisdom of 30 genealogy bloggers x 3 articles! Nearly 100 articles showcasing specific genealogy and blogging How tos. What a wealth of information!

    footnoteMaven's announcement is all-inclusive:

    Choose a topic that you can give helpful advice on and
    write a series of articles (3+) about it

    I suppose the keyword here is helpful. And we can assume, helpful to genealogy bloggers. Which could mean just about anything. . .

    • Sheri Fenley, The Educated Genealogist on How to find the PERFECT harem outfit for your next conference.
    • Thomas MacEntee, And I Helped on How to make a PERFECT slow cooker meal to give more time for genealogy
    • Caroline Pointer, Family Stories, on How to create the PERFECT rhyme to commemorate most any family event

    For my bit, I am starting off tomorrow with an revised edition and encore of my series on How to Write for Blog Carnivals. The two-part article published last fall featured email interviews with three veteran blog hostesses

    These "hostesess with the mostest" shared the background of Blog Carnivals, how to participate, AND how to write a truly memorable carnival entry. I hope the encouragement from these three champion genealogy bloggers will compel you to pull out the keyboard and tell us all How To. . .

    I am hoping that I lose enough weight from my belly dancing classes to fit into the harem outfit by the time Jamboree rolls around! I will see you there Penny!

    The PERFECT rhyme? I dunno about "perfect", but it's a rhyme all right!

    Hm. Let's see...

    Find the rhyming dictionary online;
    Now add a bottle of wine.
    They'll help you to rhyme
    Most every time!


    Thanks for the mention & compliment!
