#31WBGB: My Elevator Pitch

by Tonia Kendrick on July 8, 2011 in And More

Elevator PitchOur 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.

Other Versions

I updated my Twitter Profile with a play on this and retooled my “About” page.

Your Thoughts

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.
