My day 1 of RootsTech 2016 began with the Innovator Summit General Session, which was held on Wednesday, February 3, 2016. One of the keynote speakers was Ken Krogue - co-founder of InsideSales.com.
Ken Krogue's keynote address was wonderful. I especially loved what he said about blogging. He shared the chart below that showed the results of a research study by a business magazine. The study asked "Which medias are most important?" The answer was blogging.
Here are some quotes by Ken Krogue about blogging that I really liked:
- "Don't think the word blog, think the word newspaper or magazine. It's a digital magazine for you. Your voice can be heard around the world if you blog. Forbes.com is nothing but a big Wordpress blog." ~ Ken Krogue
- "I would recommend that you get a blog. Tell your own story." ~ Ken Krogue
- "So, start your own blog. It's got some horsepower." ~ Ken Krogue
What Ken Krogue said about blogging really resonated with me. I especially love that he advised us bloggers to think of our blog as a newspaper or magazine. Blogging is important and powerful. As he said, "Your voice can be heard around the world if you blog."
I know firsthand how beneficial blogging can be. I wrote a blog post about the benefits of writing a family history blog in my post The Benefits of Genealogy Blogging.
I have also taught a class about the benefits of genealogy blogging at various family history events.
You can watch Ken Krogue's full keynote address in the video below.
If you don't have a blog yet, begin one now. Through your blog, you will be able to tell your own story, as well as the story of your ancestors.
Thanks for reading!
