Default New Article - Blogs With Deep Roots - A Great Potential Use Of The Blogging Medium

Authored by: Miriam Ellis

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/mir...s-a-great.html

A Snippet:

The text-based Internet seems to confirm that we will never again attain the vast capacity for memory retention reputed to our ancestors. Taken to an extreme, the Internet can tell you what your own name is if you ever chance to forget it. Yet, there is the very positive side of the Internet acting as an unprecedented repository for the memories and knowledge of generations of mankind.

Thank you, Matt & Zoobie! It's a great pleasure to be here. This is a happy day for me.

Zoobie - Island of Seven Cities is an interesting book, if you like history and archaeology. The author is trying to prove that some ruins he finds on a Canadian mountaintop were built by his ancestors (the Acadians) but, in the end, he concludes that they are the ruins of an ancient Chinese settlement. This is in accord with that rather famous book 1421 that came out several years ago and was given such an impassioned reception by the public.

Some people think the concept of Chinese discovery is complete nonsense. Others are convinced it is true. I would categorize myself as a very eager student as far as this is all concerned and I recently spoke with the Island of Seven Cities author. He says that a dig is about to begin at the site, so the outcome will either be that he was correct or way off base. I can hardly wait. I love these real-life mysteries!

Again, I thank you and Matt for the welcome! I hope my contributions will live up to the quality of SEG.

Default nice article!

Hey Miriam, you're right, blogs are SUCH an easy way to publish updates on genealogical research & for popular names they could definitely be monetized (at least enough to pay for hosting & SOME of the time spent on setting them up).

Incorporating an open-source wiki (mediawiki.org) would also seem to make a lot of sense, though it probably requires a little bit more technical inclination.

Hey David,
I like your Wiki idea a lot...but as you say, maybe a greater learning curve for that. The beauty of the blog is that it is so simple. You can teach a person how to blog in a few minutes (of course, teaching them how to blog well is an entirely different matter!).

It's so nice of you to comment here. I really appreciate it. I've gotten such great feedback on this post at the various forums. I'm so pleased!
Miriam
