I'm sure some of you already follow Dan Curtis - Professional Personal Historian - I have mentioned his posts a number of times. He is both a professional and a personal historian so some of you may say: "Why should I be interested in what he posts?" and you may be right, for you.
However, some of us are also folks that have been doing our own family history and genealogy work for a time, perhaps keep up a blog, and/or enjoy writing about what we do. Among that group, from time-to-time, there are a few of us who think about doing some work for pay, but don't know how to get started.
Dan's latest post, "Worried About Paying the Bills Between Major Project?" has a list of small projects that you may think about using to help you get started. Even just doing one of these for a friend or acquaintance, even a relative, might get you some word-of-mouth buzz or publicity that could get you going in a new direction. For what it is worth! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
