Why I Highlight Other Blogger Posts and Vlogger Videos

If you follow or read my blog, you may notice that I generally highlight two (2) blog posts and one (1) video vlog/day. There are exceptions as sometimes I will highlight more than the above. For example, today I highlighted a YouTube video as part of my Forgiveness Sundays series.

I also do a Featured Blogger of the Week on Fridays and a Featured Vlogger of the Week, mostly Tuesdays with occasional Wednesdays if I forget or am too busy. In both cases, the blogger or vlogger may range from somebody starting out to somebody who has been blogging or vlogging for a lot longer than I have been. The number of Followers for those blog posts/vlog videos can range from few (two in one case) to over 10,000.

I try and pick a range that fits my content description:

Content – Eclectic Mix of Genealogy, Bipolar Depression, Mental Health, Mental Illness, DNA, History, First Nations (aka Native Americans), Military History, World War II, Cemeteries, CrowdFunding, Authors/Writing, and Gaming (RPGs, Board Games, Wargames, etc.).

I have been trying to sub-divide them into the following categories/topics as mentioned in this blog post: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/03/12/my-1500th-blog-post

  • Genealogy, DNA;
  • Bipolar Depression, Mental Health, Mental Illness;
  • First Nations / Native American;
  • Military History, World War II;
  • History that’s not First Nations / Native American or Military is its own category.
  • Cemeteries are a separate category unless they are a military cemetery.
  • Museums, Ship Museums tend to go under History or Military History category

I didn’t include Humor in the above list, but sometimes my choices are humor related.
