Stories, Posts and Social Media
At the heart of The World According to Greg is the written word. Be it through a blog post, a short story, social media postings or a tweet, for me, as for Truman Capote, who once wrote, “the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music that words make.”
The posts on this site are divided into two main subject areas. One is The Family Tree, stories and posts specifically related to genealogy and family history in general, and my family (and all its many branches) in particular. If you’re mainly interested in that and not all the political stuff, that’s the place to go.
On the other hand, The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth. According to Greg is, well, the stuff about current events, politics, religion — you know, all the things you’re not supposed to talk about over the family dinner table. In fact, talking about this stuff has gotten me blocked from the Facebook pages of two cousins of mine whose stories are a part of The Family Tree and who probably won’t be inviting me to their dinner table any time soon. Sometimes the truth hurts.
This page also displays my two Twitter feeds. Although it’s sometimes hard to separate one from the other, my personal account @Gregory_Hile has mainly the truth stuff, and my business account @FinescaleHD focuses on genealogy and family history. Facebook, Instagram and other social media outputs will follow soon.
