Blogging is a great way for family historians to capture and share their research efforts and the stories their research discovers. Anyone can create a free WordPress site and be up and running in minutes. WordPress also offers a number of impressive support services to help you get started. One of those is Blogging University sponsored by The Daily Post. Their online “classes” are free and delightfully easy. The Blogging Fundamentals course is three weeks long. Each day, you will receive an assignment via email describing a feature for you to put in action.
At the end of the course, you’ll have a good grasp on the basics of posting content on a WordPress site.
Don’t have a blog site? You already have a user account with WordPress.com – it was created when you accepted the invitation from SAGS to join the Writers Group – and can use it to create your own blog even if it’s just for learning. It’s free and easy!
