Here’s a collection from the course to view – see below.

Years ago I was not confident to share my family history stories and I kept them in handwritten or typed form in my folders and journals. I was not sure if my writing was good enough or engaging enough to draw in readers to the content.

Over the last few years I have been digging deeper into my ancestral stories and finding new ways to plan, plot, write, illustrate and publish them to share with others.

The process for planning, plotting, writing and sharing stories in my blogs was something I wanted to share with others. So, I developed the Blogging in the Past Lane with beginners in mind. My free course Blogging in the Past Lane, containing 10 steps to success in blogging your ancestral stories, will help you get started on this fascinating journey.

You will be able to develop a blog site, write blog posts and share.
