Using technology can create activity on your unsolved murder or missing person’s case. When years have past since you’ve heard anything from law enforcement and you feel like nobody cares anymore looking for ways to make people aware can help. We want others to know our loved one’s murder or missing person’s case continues to be unsolved. Blogging is one way to do that.
I use WordPress and have blogged since 2009. When I started out I didn’t expect it to be what it is today. People follow it, respond to it and seek help through it. It’s been a source of facts, a trail of history for me. I’m able to look up events, dates, places and people I’ve had contact with. WordPress is an avenue I use to share information with others. I use it to post updates on the sequel to A Child is Missing and let people know of past and future speaking engagements. I can quickly pass on information about Kathy’s case, Cold Case Units and laws that need our attention.
There’s so much WordPress can do and I’m sure I don’t touch the surface of it’s potential. Quite frankly I get overwhelmed with keeping all my information websites updated. I have three Facebook pages, one personal and two others for the book and unsolved. I have an official book page, an Amazon, and Goodreads page. I also update LinkedIn. But WordPress has been my number one information site since I began telling people about my sister Kathy, promoting the book and expressing my passion in speaking to law enforcement about cold cases. I share my desire to see Cold Case Units started in every state.
In the beginning, I had no idea what to do but allowed patience to be my guide as I fumbled through the process. Initially, my daughter Joscelyn helped me get started. Since then I’ve advanced a little. I’m more capable of making changes. I set up another WordPress site for someone else seeking justice for her sister. You’ve heard the saying, “If I can do it anyone can” and if you knew me you would understand this to be true. Start your blog and share your story.
