A New Look for Facebook Bootcamp

The admins of this blog have had a discussion over the past few days as to the focus of Facebook Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers. Initially as many genea-bloggers took the dive into the world of social networking and Facebook, there was a need for a "how to" guide geared towards our community. Posts that explained in easy, step-by-step fashion how to join Blog Networks, how to add your blog posts, etc.

Over the past two months, we've seen more and more requests for help and information that did not include Facebook but blogging in general: how to add a badge with an underlying link in the sidebar or how to participate in a blog carnival. By not limiting our focus to just Facebook procedures, we've been able to assist many genea-bloggers and have also helped those new to genea-blogging get their blogs set up.

While our URL will still remain, the focus will include all technical aspects of genea-blogging.  Many have gotten into the habit of calling this site simply "bootcamp" and our new banner is in keeping with that simplified name.

If there are any topics you'd like to see here on Bootcamp, please let us know!

Thanks again for all you do for the genea-blogging community. This Bootcamp blog is a tremendous service to many.

Hat's off to each of you for the time and effort you have put in toward "holding our hands" as we continue to get acquainted with the digital world of online journaling.

Thanks for the positive feedback. The biggest hat belongs to Thomas - he is the Big Kahuna of Genea-Blogger Bootcamp. I think it is fair to say that the rest of us just try to keep up with him. (I fail miserably!)

I agree with Kathryn! :-)
