posted by Sandra Gardner Benward
Make your wish! Blow out the candles! Today April 29, 2013, Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society's (RCSGS) will celebrate its second anniversary as a member of GeneaBloggers - the ultimate site for genealogy blogs.
For our newer members that don't know about Geneabloggers, I will attempt to explain. Root Cellar SGS tech committee opened a blog for its members on April 29, 2011. We were introduced to a website (more of a blog community umbrella) called GeneaBloggers. It has all kinds of helps for bloggers trying to get started and to continue. A LOT OF SUPPORT AND HELP. It offers a set of Daily Blog Prompts (Society Saturday, Wordless Wednesday, Friends of Friends Friday) and searches on them nightly. Their search engine (like Google or Bing) crawl through the internet looking for and collecting posts from many different genealogy blog sites. They are then collected in GeneaBloggers roll-up for Daily Blog Prompts.
Root Cellar Ramblings Blog Team is very excited that we are so involved with GeneaBloggers and have been accepted by the genealogy blogging community. Over the past two years, Root Cellar Ramblings blog posts have appeared many many times on the GeneaBloggers roll-up for Daily Blog Prompts, and our events (Root Cellar SGS Spring Seminar/ Family History Day) have appeared on the GeneaBloggers Calendar. The benefits to our Society and members has been tremendous - increased visibility of what our Society has to offer researchers, e.g., publications (thanks to our Extraction Team), and an increased audience and a showcase for our member's family history including those pebble /stone /or brickwalls. The acceptance of our fellow bloggers has been so encouraging.
I personally have had a family connection this past week with a post I put up April 2012. It does work.
Let's offer a toast to our THIRD successful year on GeneaBloggers! A Special Thank You to Thomas MacEntee, creator of GeneaBloggers, for his service to the blogging community and genealogical societies. (You remember Thomas from our own Spring Seminar)
HAPPY SECOND BLOGIVERSARY
