Genea-Bloggers: A B.A.D. Force
As Jasia at Creative Gene, Lori at Smoky Mountain Family Historian and Terry at Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi have all mentioned, the next Blog Action Day (B.A.D.) will be held on October 15, 2008 with the theme being Poverty. Any blogger can participate by registering at the Blog Action Day website.
One exciting bit of news and proof that the genea-bloggers movement is a force to contend with, is this: we've been able to convince the organizers to add Genealogy as its own category!
This is kind of a big deal since many times we find ourselves being lumped into the History category on many sites. While not trying to disparage any history-related blogs and bloggers, it really goes a long way for genea-bloggers to have their own identity and see Genealogy as a category when participating in blogging functions or sites such as B.A.D. and Alltop.
So, if you've already signed up and registered your blog, return to the B.A.D. site and change your settings and use the Genealogy category. If you've not signed up yet, what are you waiting for?
