Genea-Blogger Games: 4th Update

Only a few things have been accomplished towards The Games in the last few days. We're at the halfway point of the "competition" and there is still a lot of work to be done! The pressure is mounting. Stress levels are rapidly increasing. The nice summer days are full of temptations and procrastination is worrisome, but hope is on the horizon and the end is in sight! Sources will be cited, data will be safeguarded, research will be organized, fingers will be worn out with writing, and other researchers will be helped!

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources!
Current Status: Nothing completed in this category yet.

2. Back Up Your Data!
Current Status: Tasks A and C completed - Bronze, Gold ? A medal for each task completed?

3. Organize Your Research!
Task B is now done: The 74 newspaper clippings that were scanned earlier this week have been digitally filed. Added labels, metadata, descriptions, etc. via Windows Vista.
Current Status: B, C and E completed - Gold Medal

4. Write, Write, Write!
Task C complete: Have written several posts in draft mode and scheduled them for future publication.
Current Status: A, B, and C are complete - Gold Medal

5. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness!
Task C is done: Have recommended facebook to several genea-bloggers that are not there yet. Also mentioned facebook to several members of my local genealogy society. Thus far, none of those contacted have signed up.

Current Status: All tasks completed - Platinum Medal
