I’m doing a series of classes on genealogy basics for our local Council on Aging and I wanted to build a Genealogy 101 “resource center” to support it. Because there’s so much good information already out there – from people who know a lot more about it than I do – that I decided not to try and re-invent the genealogical wheel. I chose Tumblr for my platform because it makes it so easy to collect and share stuff from around the ‘net. Although it doesn’t have categories like you find in WordPress, it does do tags [Did I ever mention how much I love tags?] and even though the pages feature is a bit crude (those ribbons you see on the bottom right above are links to the pages on this site), you can still include them.
Unfortunately, this theme doesn’t include a tag cloud although I have seen them in other themes. I did find a tag generator script and was able to build a page to display my tags using it.
One other quick tip . . . since many readers are using the reader feature in Tumblr’s mobile apps to follow a number of blogs, it’s a good idea to occasionally include a post that points the reader to any static pages on your site.
