Jumpstart Your Genealogy Blog: Week 2, Prompt 2

Week 2 of the Jumpstart Your Genealogy Blog Prompts says: Participate in carnivals. A blog carnival is a showcase of bloggers’ posts on a given topic. Genealogy bloggers LOVE carnivals because there’s something for everyone. To learn about when these showcase-type events are happening, read others’ genealogy blogs. Someone’s always talking about a carnival.

Been there, done that many times over. Check my tag "carnivals" on the right side to see the events in which I've participated.

Once you participate in a genealogy blog carnival and post your entry, I challenge you to go further. Read everyone else's entries and comment on the ones that move you. It's a very rewarding experience. You establish contact with other bloggers. If you provide the link to your blog in your comments, it also refers new readers to your work. Win win.

  1. Amy - Thanks again for this list of 52 prompts. I've been busiy re-organizing my home, my research, my room.. the list goes on and on. In the meantime, I finally did join a carnival this week, which I was a bit out of my comfort zone. I find I write better when I'm not thinking about the audience. Anyway, thanks for the list and the encouragement to keep going through it.
