Hi everyone! It’s time for my Monday Musings!
There are quite a few things on my mind today but I will try to stay focused on the main items that need to be addressed. The most important things would be those that relate to my web site and blog and how I plan on getting things started again. So, let’s see what we can come up with!
First off, my blog is probably going to be the most active thing right now. Why? Well, simply because it is already up and running and it only takes a few minutes to write down what is on my mind. That being said, I will try to maintain a schedule of posts that will keep everyone updated on what is going on with my research and the development of my web site. There may not be many posts at first but I will try to at least keep my genealogy prompts going. By prompts I am referring to those things such as Monday Musings, Tombstone Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, and Tell Me Thursday. These are the main ones I have always tried to do. Those posts of the past will be just that now. I will have to start all over so you may see something posted that you have seen before but you have to realize that everything else was lost so I am starting completely over. There will be quite a few posts that you have seen before but that is just the nature of starting over!
So, on to my ideas for the website. First off, even though it is at kenspangler.com I will no longer call it KenSpangler.com! Instead I have decided to call it Ken’s Gen. The subtitle will be “The Genealogy Research and Writings of Kenneth W. Spangler”. Is that original? Heck, I don’t know. I doubt there is much of anything that is original anymore. I did do a search for any other sites that would be called Ken’s Gen and did not find any so I am hoping that I won’t face any copyright suits soon!
I hope that you all will understand that the website will take a little longer to get going. There is a lot more going in to the website than there is the blog. The beauty of WordPress is that I simply had to install it and then start posting! The website requires a little more attention. I have to decide on a layout, a navigational scheme, colors and such and then I have to start implementing that scheme. It requires a lot of coding, even if I use some sort of program to help me write some of the pages, I still have to edit them to make them fit my site! In other words, my website will not be up overnight! I’m hoping to at least get the shell up within a week or so. We will have to see how things go in my life.
Writing all of this makes me think that a good post topic would be “Back Up Your Website and Blog” but that is something for another day!
I’ll cut this message short today. I think I have covered what I wanted to. Be patient with my website progress and be sure to keep up with my blog as it will be the most active part of my site and will keep you updated on my progress!
Until next time, I wish you good luck in your research!
