Our first challenge in “31 Weeks to a Better Genealogy Blog” is writing an elevator pitch – a short introduction to your blog that can be expressed in the space of an elevator ride. This was much harder than I anticipated, but I think it will all be downhill from here.
My Elevator Pitch
At Tonia’s Roots, I write about my adventures as a 21st-century genealogy hobbyist, striving to do professional-quality work. This is my journal, my scrapbook, and my research notebook. I cover all the things that intersect with my genealogy world – technology, tools, research, repositories, social media, educational experiences, and of course, those elusive ancestors.
If we have ancestors in common, then you’ll want to visit the “Family Tree” section, because I keep everything online – names, photos, documents, research notes, sources – it’s all there.
Whether you’re a fellow genealogist or a relative, I hope you’ll visit and have a look around.
What did you think about this task? Was it harder or easier than you anticipated? Constructive criticism on my pitch? Tell us in the comments.
