I did it. I finally did it. Because of the Open Thread Thursday post at Geneabloggers, I decided to bite the bullet and put together my research toolbox. Well, I started it anyway. Turns out I had a LOT more links than I thought I did, which is great ... but also made me realize how disorganized they were (which is probably why I'm not having as much luck with my research as I anticipated ...).
Using Thomas MacEntee's suggestion of a Weebly website (it's free ... and fun to say), I built
(cue the dramatic music) ...
Wheee! (Yes, I've been waiting a long time to use that name for something).
Ok, so it's no 6-million-dollar man or anything, but I'm hoping it will help me keep my links organized. I have included a link on my blog, and a reciprocal link to my blog from my toolbox. I may at some point or another move my blog over to my website (since I went ahead and bought the domain name before someone stole it's awesomeness), but I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet.
I hope to also incorporate some Surname pages and other stuff ... but I want to get my toolbox up and running first. It's a work in progress, so be gentle if you come visit. Any helpful hints or ideas will be greatly appreciated!
