Follow Friday ~ Fab Finds for March 14, 2014

Hello my awesome readers! As some of you may know, I'm on Pinterest. I have several genealogy boards there. Surprisingly, I get a lot of traffic on my blog from Pinterest. In fact, right now Pinterest is #3 on my list of referring sites for the month and #10 for all time. If you don't already share your genealogy blog posts on Pinterest, you may be missing out on a great thing.

So, what does this have to do with my weekly Fab Finds posts? Well, I've created a new board on Pinterest called Genealogy Fab Finds. And, I'll be sharing my weekly Fab Finds posts there. If you'd like to check out this new board, click HERE.

  1. Hi Jana!

    As always and impressive list of tips and I am honored to be mentioned among them. Thank you! I am not on Pinterest and have not really looked into it, but will do so on your recommendation!

    1. Hi John,

      You're very welcome for the mention! Let me know if you join us on Pinterest so I can follow your boards. =)

  2. Thanks for the mention in Fab Finds Jena.


    1. You're very welcome Diane! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thanks! What a great list to be a part of! I'll be spending a fair amount of time exploring these resources!

    1. You're so welcome Pete! And thanks for stopping by!

  4. Thanks, Jana, for mentioning one of my blog posts again. I don't do Pinterest myself very often, but I appreciate others pinning my posts. On my blog Pinterest ranks #2 out of referring website, right after Google, and I receive about 1,000 hits per month from Pinterest, more around holidays like Christmas and Valentines for some odd reason.

    1. You're very welcome Heather! Wow! Sounds like Pinterest is a great referring website for your blog as well. =)

  5. Hi Jana--Thanks for including GENEALOGY UNIVERSE in your genealogy finds. I read your "About" page and saw you are a Find A Grave volunteer. That is great work, and tremendously valuable. Although I am not LDS, I do volunteer indexing and arbitration for FamilySearch. I teach genealogy classes and tell my students Mormons are the greatest genealogists in the world.

    1. Hi Ronald, You're very welcome for the mention! And thank you for indexing and arbitrating records on FamilySearch! That's a wonderful service you are doing!
