Myrt's Webinar: Blogging for Beginners 20 Oct 2010

Just a reminder! Don't forget to register for the "Blogging for Beginners" webinar. It's in ten days. There's still time to participate. Our friends at have invited me to teach this free webinar on Wednesday, 20 Oct 2010 via the internet. This is a LIVE webinar where you'll see my computer screen and hear Ol' Myrt's voice explain how to get blogging that very day!
Directions for attending will be emailed to you once you've signed up.

Here's the course description:

Blogging for Beginners with DearMYRTLE. Step-by-step approach to creating a blog, and making postings using the free service at A great way to share genealogy research, post your society's newsletter, share info with extended family members. The webinar will also feature a survey of sample blogs, and links for additional help.
If you'd like to participate, register at the LegacyFamilyTree website.

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!
Myrt     :)
Your friend in genealogy.


  1. Pat, will you be teaching the new bloggers to enable ALL comment options on their blogs? They can still have comment filtering, but genealogy is much about sharing of information and if they limit who can comment and how, they might just miss out on connecting with a cousin or two. Wait! I can't even comment here with my name/url. Would you please enable that?

  2. DearCAROL,
    THANKS for your comment. I couldn't agree more about the SHARING of info among genealogists.

    By definition, a one hour class on any topic cannot possibly discuss ALL options. I am sorry you don't like the settings I've chosen using

    The really great news is that there is nothing preventing those who comment from inserting their name and URL with their response to a blog entry.

    Myrt :)
