Wisdom Wednesday July 28, 2010

wisdom wednesday

Today is Wisdom Wednesday – an alternative to Wordless Wednesday for those who just can’t post without words!. If you have your own genealogy or family history related blog, you can participate in Wisdom Wednesday. What is it?

Wisdom Wednesday is a daily blogging theme used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

To participate in Wisdom Wednesday simply create a post in which you share words of wisdom about any number of things including weddings, marriage, children, work, and so on.  A post  could include such things as favorite sayings of grannies, superstitions, that sort of thing.  Words of wisdom should have their origins in the past and have been passed on from generation to generation.

A special thanks to Jennifer Geraghty-Gorman of On a Flesh and Bone Foundation: An Irish History for suggesting Wisdom Wednesday as a daily blogging theme!

Summer Vacation for May I Introduce To You . . .

Starting this week, our long-running series May I Introduce To You . . . will take a much deserved vacation until Monday, September 13, 2010 when it will return to profiling a variety of genealogy bloggers.

As some readers may know, Gini Webb of the Ginisology blog has been doing a fantastic job with the interviews and write-ups for the May I Introduce To You . . . series over the past year.  Last week, Gini’s mother passed away unexpectedly.  If you can, please take a moment to stop by her Facebook page or her blog and express your condolences during this difficult time for her and her family.
