How to Create a Blog Title Graphics

How to Create Blog Title Graphics

When a reader asks a blogger a question and a challenge presents a deadline, the stars align so that I can put on my teaching hat (the one I love best to wear).

Dana Leeds, The Enthusiastic Genealogy, posed the question "How do you create your blog post graphics?"

Initially, I wanted to answer Dana's question through a step-by-step long-form written tutorial with screenshots showing every step of my process. The teacher in me felt this was not the best way to answer her question. Recently, I discovered how to create video tutorials so I could talk and walk others through my process. It was so easy I wish I had attempted this skill earlier. Perhaps sometimes a teacher has to become a student in order to better teach?

Okay, what's up? Why all the 'back to school' jargon?

Well, that's the challenge I initially mentioned. Elizabeth O'Neal hosts genealogy blog challenges each month. With September being a common American 'Back-To-School' season, the challenge was to "Genealogy School is in session, and it's your turn to be the teacher! What do you think your students need to learn?"

Ah ha! I knew what one special student needed to learn, and likely others who are starting or continuing their family history and genealogy blogging journey. As an added bonus, I learned how to create a digital tutorial that is a much better 'look over my shoulder' teaching method that I prefer.

Photoshop Elements is a handy program to have installed on your computer. It helps you create blog titles and scrapbook pages. If you have any questions I could answer in a future post, I welcome the opportunity to be your teacher. Leave your questions in the comment section below or on my Family History Fanatics YouTube Channel. I look forward to serving you.
