More on Daily Blogging Themes

GeneaBloggers [see geneabloggers.com] has suggested using Daily Blogging Themes. They suggest... "Many genealogy and family history bloggers like to post every day but at times are at a loss for ideas. Using the series of blogging themes below is not only a great way to create new content, but also lets you participate in a community effort with other genealogy bloggers." Genea-Musings added the last two.

Check it out! Will this work for you?

Black Sheep Sunday
Madness Monday
Tombstone Tuesday
Wordless Wednesday
Treasure Chest Thursday
Follow Friday
Surname Saturday

Black Sheep Sunday
Create a blog post with the main focus being an ancestor with a "shaded past." [geneabloggers.com]

Madness Monday
Create a post with the main focus being an ancestor who either suffered some form of mental illness or an ancestor who might be hard to locate and drives you mad. [geneabloggers.com]

Tombstone Tuesday
Create a post which includes an image of a gravestone of one of your ancestors and it may also include a brief description of the image or the ancestor. [geneabloggers.com]

Wordless Wednesday
Create a post with the main focus being a photograph or image. Some posters also include attribute information as to the source of the image (date, location, owner, etc.). [geneabloggers.com]

Treasure Chest Thursday
Create a post with the main focus being a family treasure, an heirloom or even an every-day item of importance to your family. [geneabloggers.com]

Follow Friday
Recommend another blogger, a specific blog post, or a genealogy resourse to the genealogy community. If you've found something or someone helpful, post about it/them and tell others why they should be followed. [geneamusings.com]

Surname Saturday
Post about one or more of your surnames - talk about the origins, talk about their geographic locations, etc. Anything that would help you bring more attention to the surname, especially if you have hit a brick wall or need assistance with research. [geneamusings.com]

  1. Hello Dr. Bill!

    Thanks so much for highlighting our Daily Blogging Themes at GeneaBloggers. For new bloggers or even those writing their own family stories, the themes can help give some structure and provide prompts especially when writer's block sets in!

    Cheers

  2. I have posted Tues, Wed and Thurs this week. Do you pick them up automatically, or do I need to do something else, to get them shared?
    Thanks,

    ;-)
