It's Coming: Story @ Home

In a little over a month, the Story @ Home conference will makes its debut in downtown Salt Lake City. It's not a writing conference, and it's not just about family history. It's about well, bringing stories and family history to life . . . at home.

Family history and genealogy are some of the fastest growing interests in the world.

We now have access to more resources and information than ever before on how to do it, how to organize, get involved, make it a family affair, or even how to blog or simply write your personal life story.

All that information can be overwhelming. The idea of writing your personal history can seem daunting, especially if you don't consider yourself a writer.

That's where this conference comes in.

Created by Cherished Bound, the conference will focus on three tracks: Blogging, Genealogy, and Storytelling. When you register (for the steal of $79, which covers both days), you'll indicate which track you're most interested in, but that's mostly so they can plan. You can attend any class that strikes your fancy.

I'll be teaching, as will several other writer and bloggers you may be familiar with:

Rustin Banks from the Blog Frog
Elisa Scharton (also known as The Motherboard and the co-founder of the Casual Blogger Conference)
DeNae Handy (I challenge you to read her blog and not snort with laughter)

And many others, including, as I mentioned, yours truly.

It's going to be a ball. Be sure to register soon!

2 of my sisters are going to this conference! I have no doubt it will be amazing. I'm so excited for Aundi because she has just discovered writing and blogging and how to connect both to family history in a unique way. She blogs at She's just discovering who she might become and I think this conference will really help her grow as a person. She has a brain injury that has slowed her life down and is now getting to finally start moving forward with her own dreams. It looks to be a pretty great event. I'm sure you'll be awesome!
