Colleen Greene, MLIS is a librarian, web developer, content strategist, and educator who regularly teaches and presents on web content strategy, social media, digital history tools, and other emerging technology tools and topics. She has a knack for being able to explain complex technology concepts in easy to understand terms.
She has taken the time to put together a wonderful series of posts on her website that walk bloggers and website operators through exactly how to add Genealogy Snapshots to WordPress based sites. She broke it down into three parts to make it easier to digest.
These posts explain how to do this for almost any website, including Blogger and WordPress.com, but what makes her efforts special is the work she put into teaching readers how to get the most out of a self-hosted WordPress site using plugins and re-useable code.
What makes these guides really stand out is how thorough they are. Colleen makes clear exactly what you should see at each stage of the process and she takes the time to explain her thought processes and why she selected the specific tools and techniques used for this project.
