Jamboree 2010 ~ Smiling Saturday Sequel ~ Post #6

Continuing on with my "Smiling Saturday" theme at Jamboree, I next attended Blogger Summit part 2. This summit's panel consisted of Thomas MacEntee, Destination Austin FamilyGeneaBloggers, Craig Manson, GeneaBlogie, Schelley Talalay Dardashti, Tracing the Tribe, Lisa Louise Cooke, Genealogy Gems Podcast, Family Tree Magazine Podcast and Kathryn Doyle, California Genealogy Society and Library.

Part two was continuing on with after you have your blog; how to keep it fresh, beneficial and possibly profitable along with some other tips from the panel.

Also in the "Summit" room there was quite a conversation being carried on about this incident:

These are two GeneaBloggers who seem to have an awful lot in common! They had the same shoes, and each of them was wearing blue jeans and blue shirts. Pop Question! Do you know who they may be? Not fair if you attended Jamboree! I will leave this open for a couple days or so and give you the answer later on. In the meantime, I would love to read your guesses!

Next it was on to Lisa Lousie Cooke and her live Podcast. Interviewed were Maureen Taylor ~ The Photo Detective, Suzanne Russo Adams ~ from Ancestry, discussing research she did for WDYTYA , and Chris Haley ~ nephew of Alex Haley of "Roots" fame. It was both exciting and entertaining to be at one of Lisa's live podcast's. What was my biggest surprise? Well, actually there were two. The first one was the introduction of Lisa's grandson, who was a cutie. The second was listening to Chris Haley sing! It was great to be in the audience! Listen to the videocast for yourself!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. I am really enjoying your posts since I couldn't come to Jamboree. Did you hear me going "oohhh" when I read your remark that Lisa Louise Cooke's grandson made an appearance? That would have been a huge highlight for me too since I've heard sooo much about him!

  2. Hi Michelle, Thank you for letting me know you are enjoying these posts. Sometimes you wonder if they get read at all, and who really cares. I think I did here you say "oohhh," I just wasn't sure it was you! Now I know!

  3. I'd like to know who owns the feet. I really like the shoes - I'm a boot/shoe person myself! And I almost always wear blue!!! They must be my twins!

  4. Ok, glad someone asked about the feet finally! ;-)

    They belong to Steve Danko and Becky Wiseman...they must be related somehow! Thanks for asking Kathy, maybe they are related to you too!

  5. Ah yes, the shoes! There is a "back-story" to that as well, perhaps a post for another day!

    Had a great time being your roomie for the weekend and hope that we'll be able to meet up again sometime.

  6. Hi Becky,

    Did you tell me the back story? Seems to me you did, but I think I need to verify that with you!

  7. Hi Cheryl,
    I'm SO behind. Thanks much for the link and for the series. It's fun seeing things from your vantage point (through that wonderful camera) – there was so much going on that weekend!

  8. Hi Kathryn,

    You are welcome! There was always something going on that weekend for sure!
