A blog such as this is a way for the "blogger" to share something with the world; opinion, facts, pictures, a diary or other information. Since the only effort is signing up and then typing a "post" to your blog, it's the easiest way to create a web page. A blog can be an individual effort or a team effort. In a team effort, the host of the original blog sends email invitations to team members who can accept or reject the invitation. In order to accept, the team member must sign up or already have a blog.
The purpose of this blog is to demonstrate how a team blog could be useful for an extended family to share genealogical research. But, of course, that concept would apply to any afinity group; club members, classmates, present and former employees, etc.
If any Pastfinder member is interested in participating in this demonstration, you can email me either through email the webmaster at the bottom of our home page (listed to the right) or reply to any email from me and I'll send you an invitation to join. Note that Dotty accepted an invitation and is now a member.
