I understand that Geoff from Legacy Family Tree will also have some nice door prizes for attendees.
If you'd like to finally get that family history blog off the ground, this free webinar is just for you!  Remember it is going to be held Wednesday, 20 Oct 2010 via the internet. You'll need to make note of the various time zones, so you won't be late:

8:00 PM Eastern (U.S.)
7:00 PM Central
(U.S.) 6:00 PM Mountain (U.S.) - that's where I'll be! 5:00 PM Pacific (U.S.)

If you live elsewhere in the world, no problemo! Use the World Clock Time Zone Converter.

This is a LIVE webinar where you'll see my computer screen and hear Ol' Myrt's voice explain how to get blogging within minutes. I'll demonstrate live how to add graphics, and include a few tips about add-on widgets that will make your blog easier for folks to find.
Directions for attending will be emailed to you once you've signed up.

Here's the course description:

Blogging for Beginners with DearMYRTLE.

Ol' Myrt's goal is to see you emerge from this class as successful bloggers, ready, willing and able to join the ranks of genebloggers who are taking advantage of free internet space to tell their ancestral stories.

Happy family tree climbing!
