Use Newspaper Articles To Give Your Family Website "Color"

I've seen many family history websites that have hundreds of words strung together to tell a story of a person or a family.  I've even had posts like that myself.

But it is BORING! No one likes to read a blog post like they read a novel.  How about a photo or two - or better yet - if the story is mostly represented by a newspaper article - then include the article.

See how these headlines get your attention?

Don't these headlines INVITE you to read the article.  I think they do.

C'mon - give it a try.  You (and your readers) will like it!
