Carnival of Genealogy: An unusual topic, October 1

Some time ago, Tracing the Tribe wrote a post entitled “If your blog died today.”

The idea came from ProBlogger Darren Rowse, who asked “If your blog died today, what would it be remembered for?”

Jasia of Creative Gene – our Carnival of Genealogy Queen – ran with the idea and Tracing the Tribe is hosting the 81st edition of the COG:


“Your Genealogy Blog’s Obituary: If your blog ended or was lost/deleted today, how would you write its obituary?

What were the highlights of your blog?

What is its history?”

The deadline for submissions is October 1. Submit your blog article to the 81st Carnival of Genealogy using the carnival submission form.

Darren’s post was a two-part assignment which will provide more input. Here are some questions that might help:

– What do you want people to say about your blog?
– How do you hope it will have been perceived?
– What will people miss about it the most?
– What ground has it broken?
– What has it achieved?
– How has it helped people?

– Write an obituary for your blog as you think others see it now.
– What would they say about it?
– What would people miss about it?
– What has it achieved?
– How has it fulfilled a need or service in people’s lives?
– What ground has it broken?

Tracing the Tribe is rubbing its virtual hands in glee over the prospect of reading all your submissions.

Remember to please use a descriptive phrase in the title of any articles you plan to submit and/or write a brief description/introduction to your articles in the “comment” box of the blog carnival submission form. This will give readers an idea of what you’ve written about and interest them in clicking on your link.

Thank you to footnoteMaven for creating the excellent 81st COG badge above.

I’m looking forward to reading your posts.
