Blog presentation; one down, one to go

Well...(big sigh), my Blog Talk presentation at my local library went very well.  I had help from other society members too.  Can always use the support.  Now I can have my "life" back.  I was so consumed with this presentation; eating while writing it, dreaming of it, going over and over in my head what I wanted to say.

Thank you to everyone who gave me the encouragement, held my hand during the process, and patted me on the back when I was through.  I also want to send a big loving THANK YOU to my husband.  He always "has my back." 

Now I still have to give the talk to my society next month, but I Can Do It!

Blog Talk Presenation

I've been preparing a presentation I'm going to give to our local public library.  My talk is Genealogy Blogs 101.  Next month I'll be giving this same talk to my genealogy society.

I've been gathering information for weeks now.  Been staying up late and even dreaming of it in my sleep.  I'm not a professional speaker. I'm also really nervous.  I'm as prepared as I'm ever going to be.  It'll be good to step out of my comfort zone for just a little while. 

The feeling is a little like when I tried Zip Lining a few months ago.  That very first step off the first platform into midair was frightening.  But I did it, and the next four platforms weren't as scary.

I can do the blog talk, I'll be OK.  Just like stepping into midair.  WHEEEEE!

Blog test from my phone

I'm slowly dipping my toe into blogging-on-the-go.  I'm taking this for a test drive before I spend too much time on it, so here goes.
