The Genealogists Genealogy Daily Publication

You may not even be aware of it, but I also have a Paper.li publication that I created some time ago. The name of it is, as you can see, The Genealogists Genealogy Daily. When I began tweeting on Twitter the first account I had was as @webduck with strictly a genealogical or historical focus. That hasn’t changed at all. The Genealogists Genealogy Daily gets all of its stories from those who primarily tweet about …genealogy or history. That was done through making a Twitter list of my friends and that feed fuels the list.

You Can Be A Contributor and A Subscriber

It’s free to read the Daily (please subscribe!), and if you would like to be in the feed for the Genealogists list, there are only a couple things you need to do: 1. contact me via Twitter (@webduck) and 2. Tweet predominantly about genealogy and/or history. I try to keep the feed free of commercial tweeters even though they may have a genealogical bent. Right now, there are 309 in the list.  [Disclosure] I do have some of my own affiliate links on the sidebars. The main focus though is to promote the genealogy community and how much fun it is to trace your ancestors!!


How To Add The Paper.li Publish It Bookmarklet To Your Bookmarks Bar

With so many people publishing their own daily paper through Paper.li, you might need to quickly add something to your current issue. That’s where the new Paper.li “Publish It!” feature comes in handy.

I’ve noticed though that some people don’t quite know how to add this tool to their bookmarks toolbar. What seems easy to the creator of tools like this isn’t always the case for people still learning the lingo and locations of things.

  • First, go to the Paper.li home page and login.

  • On the black bar at the top, click on Newsstand.

  • This takes you to another page where you will be able to find the Publish It! tab on the right of your screen.

  • Click on that tab and it will open to show you the view of the actual button you will drag and drop.

  • Hold your LEFT mouse button down as you DRAG and DROP that blue button up to your bookmarks bar. (Favorites in IE).  Hovering over the button directs you to do this. Image below is from my Firefox browser.
