Amy Coffin's Genealogy Blogging Book
I ordered Amy Coffin's new ebook The Big Genealogy Blog Book and read it in a morning. Love it!
This is a book with a very tight focus -- writing genealogy blogs. I liked the ideas for quality control; it's amazing how often the simplest things get overlooked by even long-time bloggers. Anyone who has been around the genealogy blog world will recognize the "52 weeks" lists, and it's convenient to have them all in one place. A society that followed the suggestions for a society blog would have a winner, and i expect the same would be true for the tips for genealogy professionals.
This book shows off one of the true virtues of the digital book movement -- it's only as long as it needs to be, and is priced accordingly. Very nicely done!
Now I just need to implement some of her clever ideas...
