I want to thank everyone who participated in my website survey. It is now closed, but I’m always interested in feedback so please feel free to email me with any thoughts you have. The winner of the set of Irish Quick Reference Guides is Renee Lange. For those of you who did not win, and have not yet ordered your Guides, they are available through my Store.
I really appreciate the comments and suggestions you’ve made. Some, relating to the website, I’ll work to incorporate into my new design. Since 2010 I’ve used software called Sandvox which allowed me to create everything on my computer and then upload it to my host (GoDaddy). Since it worked just like a word processor, I’m a bit intimidated by some of the language on the web design companies.😀 I’m presently looking at GoDaddy, Wordpress and SquareSpace, and someone suggested Wix. If you have any experience with any of these, let me know. The biggest issue with the blog is how people find things as I discussed last week.
Some of the comments and requested topics were on subjects I’ve written on in the past which relates back to the issue of finding things. Because of that, I may just repost some of the older blogs…sometimes it’s a good reminder even if you’ve seen it before.
You’ve also suggested some new topics and those will go onto my list. I’m always looking for that type of feedback, since after 11 years, it’s sometimes hard to come up with something new. Some of your suggestions will give me an opportunity to learn something new.
Someone mentioned that they had trouble finding my Research Plan document. Here’s a link to my blog on Creating a Research Plan. I used the method mentioned last week to find the document:
research plan site:moughty.com/blog
You can find the link to the template in the blog, but I’ll make it easier for you. It’s here.
Another request was for information on organizing your genealogy. Here are two blogs I wrote back in January on my organizing method for both paper files and digital files.
Back to work on the website.
It’s not too late to register for the Celtic Connections Conference, August 10-11 in Newton, Massachusetts. Reservations are open until August 1. There are lots of great speakers including John Grenham and Fiona Fitzsimons from Ireland.
