Genealogy News Blogging: Help others, gain a following, build your business

newspaperGenealogy News Blogs are a must-follow for every genealogist. But there aren’t enough of them! I know you might think it’s funny, it seems there are all kinds of blogs that tell us about the latest FamilySearch or Ancestry.com news.

But that’s not what I’m talking about – I’m talking about what YOU care about. Who do you follow to let you know about the new databases that are being posted for Indiana research? About webinars that focus on how to research in that area? Or even simply how to use the resources that already exist online for that locality? How do you stay updated with what’s going on where you are researching?

If you are a professional genealogist for a specific region, you have likely already found a way to stay updated. Have you ever considered using that knowledge to help build your business and reputation online?

There are a few bloggers out there who have captured the attention of the genealogy community because of specifically what they post about – online genealogy news for a specific area. They have become the top bloggers in their chosen localities.

You can do what they do - and the best part is, it’s not as hard or as time consuming, as you might think. Genealogy News blogging, especially with information about online records and resources, provides a tremendous service to the genealogy world, and researchers love it.
