What is a blog?
Just a shout out to commend the California Genealogical Society & Library of Oakland for their wonderful blog produced by Kathryn Doyle. Recently Kathryn Doyle discussed in her blog (http://blog.californiaancestors.org) for the California Genealogical Society on Dec 4, 2009, that “Amy Coffin of WeTree blog featured the CGSL blog in her article Should Your Genealogical Society Have a Blog? She summed up the blog-website relationship perfectly: Blogs are websites. Websites aren't always blogs. A genealogy society's web page is like a store window. It highlights the group's value, hopefully enticing visitors to walk through the virtual door and explore the site. A blog is like a genealogy society's in-store sale circular. It is a good communication tool for the latest information and quickly changing details. A genealogy society's web page serves one purpose and a blog another. “ Happy Birthday to Kathryn’s blog – she has done a wonderful job promoting her large society.
