I want to read as many as I can. How about a post just to share your blog address for the challenge?

Here's mine: Converging Roots

Until recently, I really haven't been a blogger although I did have a Family History website which requires login to see most information.  But in an effort to participate in this Writing Challenge, I have installed blogging software, and you can read about my progress here - 1 day down, 27 more to go.

For Family History Writing Challenges, this year I started a new blog dedicated just to that. It is linked to my main blog, which deals with the research, and an online journal dealing with readings and ideas as I work on problem solving. This is the Challenge blog: Adventures in Family History Writing
You can find the home blog and the online journal by following the tabs at the top of the page.

My blog is more about my genealogy adventure than about specific family.  It's a place to vent about my frustrations and share my findings, and write about the process.

    I love the idea of a blog but I do not know how to go about setting one up.  Could anyone give me help with this.  Do I need special software?  I bought my laptop in Feb. of last year and it has Words Office 7.  That is where I am writing my story.  I would love to share it and have others critic and give insight.

Oh, I put mine on the "Newbie" page, but I'll post here too:

I've been reading the blogs of people have been posting, and I must say they are all GREAT!  Keep writing (I love reading just as much as I love writing!)!

I don't have a lot, as I have just gotten over the fear of writing about my family...please stop by and let me know what you think!

Louise, the two popular blog sites are Wordpress and Blogger (  I've used both, but I'm using Blogger now.  It's the easiest.  Basically you just sign up, pick a template (background and setup page) and start blogging. Blogger is free, and WP has a free option and a paid option.   Lynn may have some more ideas for you.

For Christmas, I gave all of my family a 2013 Family History calendar I created in Shutterfly.  Each month features a photo collage of my parents, grandparents, g-grands, my siblings and me, and December ends with a photo of the grandkids, or The Next Generation.  Then I promised to share family stories for the featured folks in my new blog I started on January 1.  It's my first time blogging and I learn as I go.  The grandkids, my target audience, are loving these new-to-them, short, photo-laden stories!

Love the style you've taken to in writing this blog. It's clear you understand who your target audience is and the writing is very suited to them. Congrats!

Shelly, what's not to like about a fellow Ohio family history writer's blog?  Loved the description from 1929 of Mrs. Eberhard and her egg incubation and how much she baked in a week's time.  Good writing, and interesting reading.
