Follow Friday – Generations of Stories

My follow Friday this week is a self-plug. I started another site to help people begin their research and most importantly, write their stories. The site is Generations of Stories.

Part of my Generations business plan is to write and I am doing a lot of that in 2011. One site I began writing for at the very end of 2010 is HubPages. It will feature different things than what I post on my blogs for genealogical research and maybe I will branch out and write about raising twins and add tips on how to stay sane doing it. LOL! Check me out if you are in the Hub.
