In an earlier post I talked about strategy, breaking it down into ten segments. Today I am going to write a about sharing your material which is essentially segment nine. You can read the strategy series HERE
There is a great deal of overlap between today’s post and yesterday’s, but we are bringing together genealogical strands to make a robust project.
Some of the folk in my study are written about on my blog, either as standalone pieces or I focus on a theme and write a post on my blog. Each post that is published is also set up to post to Twitter and my Facebook page. Articles can also be written, a number of the genealogical magazines will accept relevant pieces, also the Journal of One-Name Studies will take articles relevant to One-Name Studies, on occasion that features a fascinating person in someone’s study.
A profile page on the Guild website is also useful. They are indexed by Google and are a great way of advertising your work, as are websites.
One thing I have not mentioned is about presenting about your study. Over the years I have talked about my Orlando (Italian) study and back in 2017 I reworked a presentation about my Italian study and made it available on the Guild of One-Name Studies website, you can watch the presentation HERE and download the Syllabus that I wrote to accompany it. You can also see both the presentation and the syllabus on my Orlando Profile
By sharing your knowledge, whether that is answering an email or writing a post you are advertising the study. That might lead to some interesting connections and perhaps information for your study, or you might inspire others to start their own study.
I will be back tomorrow with the last segment in this particular series.
