Practical Blogging for Family History - Using Wordpress

So you think you would like to try blogging? Well, I think that’s an excellent idea! Blogs are a great way to express yourself, connect with others who share your passions, and share information.

Blogging has entered a realm of its own - from fad to industry. People are entering the blogosphere daily, thousands every day. At one time, we would have called a blog a diary, a journal, a scrapbook, or storytelling. It's just one form of a website, but one that is much simpler to use and needs no knowledge of programming languages.

I have been blogging for over 12 years - but we were all blogging newbies at one point. True, bloggers come to the table with varying degrees of online and social media experience, but we’ve all made more than a few mistakes. Truth is, a blog is a website and many people find it difficult to set up their first blog because, although they don't need any programming skills, the terminology has not been explained in simple terms. The evolution from website to blog changes how people communicate so we will look at the development of blogs to help you learn more about blogging. Using the Wordpress platform, We will cover how to install your own blog, step by step. We will look at the different aspects of blogging using plugins, themes, text, images, sounds and videos. Plus I will point out common mistakes that you can avoid.
