    The Big Book That Could: Announcing Amy Coffin's New Blog Book


    Goals really do come true could be the 2011 motto for Amy Coffin who is the author of a brand new, hot off the presses e-book on genealogy blogging. My preview copy arrived this morning and delivers everything you might expect from the author of the WeTree blog -- great ideas, lots of encouragement, witty language, and clear direct style.

    The Big Genealogy Blog Book: 201 Topics Plus Tips and Tricks for Your Genealogy Blog presents just about everything a genealogy blogger needs to write better articles, connect with readers, encourage comments, and come up with new ideas. The book also includes a helpful encore of Amy's popular 52 Weeks... series on better genealogy and blogging.

    It hardly seems like nearly a year has gone by since Amy and I met for our ritual holiday meet-up while she was in town visiting her in-laws. We must have been feeling spunky, or bored, or both, because our happy-hour conversation shifted from current research to "So, what are your New Year's Genealogy Resolutions?" After some amount of head scratching we each came up with three things we wanted to accomplish in the next twelve months: a research goal, an organizational goal, and a writing goal.

    Amy has completed all three goals with nearly two months to spare. Lucky us, because her latest project gives the rest of us lots of ideas to get through these holiday weeks with fresh ideas for our blogs.

    Congratulations, Amy! I am looking forward to our annual meeting and your goals for 2012.

    Thank you. For everything.

    Also, just a heads up...I'm probably not going to make my scanning goal for 2011. 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

    Looking forward to our next pow wow.

    Thanks, Denise, this sounds great. And Amy, thank you for what seems to be concise, much-needed book! Congrats on it.

    BTW, I downloaded it and just got through reading it, and it's good stuff. There are a LOT of great ideas and food for thought-- I had never heard of Cyndi's List before...
