Do I need a Web Presence?

If you are an author or genealogist, the short answer is a shouted YES. Whether it be a Facebook or MySpace page, Twitter account, blog (Blogger, WordPress, etc.), a dedicated website with your own domain, or combinations of the above, being on the internet is becoming as standard as business cards, letterhead, and post office boxes for professional and hobbyists alike. You need to “get out there” to be found, just be careful how much you reveal. I always suggest using a post office box for an online address. If you want to talk to folks on the phone, but are worried about giving your permanent information out, buy a pay as you go phone. They are like disposable email addresses, if the account becomes a problem, discard it.
