The Tenth Annual Regional Genealogy Fair took place on Saturday, June 21st, 2008, at Mitchell Memorial Library on the Mississippi State University campus. About 50 genealogists from across the state participated.

The keynote speaker for the Fair, Anne L. Webster of the Mississippi State Department of Archives and History in Jackson, presented an overview of the resources and services available at the Department of Archives and History. She shared examples of documents, both common and rare, that researchers might find and emphasized that researchers should check every possible resource, even documents that might not appear to be pertinent, because information is often recorded in odd places.

Elizabeth Downey, an instructional librarian at MSU Libraries, presented Famiva, a new social networking website that allows family members to build a family tree together and to communicate with each other. The site allows blogging, maintains family calendars, and archives family photos, as well.

Participants were able to get together during lunch to share information with others researching the same family lines. Dessert at lunch was a special 10th anniversary birthday cake.

The afternoon sessions consisted of personal research in the Libraries’ Special Collections department, tours of resources throughout the Libraries, and "brick-wall breaking" sessions. MSU Libraries’ Lynne Mueller, a Special Collections librarian, presented sessions on incorporating new research techniques with more traditional research. At the same time, Elizabeth Downey, Mattie Sink, the manuscripts librarian in Special Collections, and Becky Murphey of Oxford, Mississippi, were in the Special Collections department to work one-on-one with researchers who had identified specific, difficult research problems and brought their documentation with them. They worked together to identify possible strategies and sources to solve seemingly unsolvable problems.

What should I Make My Website About?

Question by : What should I Make My Website About?
First of all… I’m not stupid. Even though I’m only 14 doesn’t mean I don’t know what it takes to full-fill a full time website that makes money. I do know that what people want is money. If you make a website about profitable techniques you will find you site loaded with hits in a mere couple of months.

If you try to make a forum about just people “chatting” this will gently die. Unless you know the right technique. Create false accounts, create false personalities, such and such. Basically talk to yourself. What people want is communication and participation. If you’re just sitting there on a forum by yourself chances are you’re going to struggle to make it stay alive or you’re going to give up. Simple as that.

What I found out in my childhood around 7 or 8 was that clubpenguin was the best thing to blog about. I blogged about it for days…. even months… maybe even a year. I found out that other kids crave clubpenguin cheats / tips / trackers.

I made a website about clubpenguin that got 60,000 hits in maybe 4 months. Yeah… how about that. Me making the most fatal mistake quit the site and decided I was to old for it. I didn’t know that I would’ve made a fortune off of it if I would’ve kept going.
__________________________________________________

What I’m trying to say here is.. what should I make my website about? Should I go back to clubpenguin and start posting about it even though I’m to old for it? I got to think about what other people are going to think of my when I’m like 16 and still posting about clubpenguin. I’m even curious to know what my girlfriend is going to think whenever she finds out I’m even begging the public to give me some ideas on website making.

Q: Anyways, what should I make my website about? Should I make it about a child’s game? Should I make it about blogging? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should make a website about?

Best answer:

Answer by misunderstood teen
why not mix everything into like a super website like you could have blogging on the site chatting video uploading qustions with answers all in one bundle and i would make sure for it to be an instant messenger included too eh but idk if thats your kinda thing or nt but thats just a crazy idea that popped up in my head i hope it helps :)

Blogging to the Bank 3.0 – Honest Review

BloggingToTheBank.gozto.com Blogging has been around for a few years now. Most people use blogs to record their thoughts and lives, while the select few use them as a free way to make a fortune. One guy who uses this to his advantage is Rob Benwell. In 2006 he dished the dirt on the tips and tricks to making a fortune using blogging. But as time passes the old systems become obsolete and new techniques are required. This is where his brand new, fresh off the press Blogging to the Bank 3.0 system comes into play. For those who know who Rob Benwell is like me, youve probably made a killing using blogs. For those who dont, hes the story Back in 2005 he was struggling to make any profit online, had dropped out of college and was getting deep into debt. He was trying all the techniques the gurus tell you and wasnt getting anywhere fast. All of that went in the bin and he started using his own techniques and started making more and more money using simple blogs. In early 2006 he shared this with the world and had a great ebook called blogging to the bank. Tons of people got rich from using these techniques (including me). He then spoke at Online Marketing Legend Yanik Silvers underground Seminar where he revealed even more of his underground strategies. Then July 2007 he released Blogging to the Bank 2.0 which showed users his new methods to creating online wealth using blogs. In total both versions have been read by over 50000 people across the world. But as I said earlier
