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
- Jasia, Creative Gene and The Carnival of Genealogy
- footnoteMaven, Shades of the Departed at Smile for the Camera,
- Evelyn Theriault, A Canadian Family
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. . .
