Many thanks to Adam at Roots Traveler and Joy at A Grave Interest for giving this blog the One Lovely Blog Award last month. My other blog, The Historian's Family, was also awarded the One Lovely Blog Award by A Couple of Whiles.
To learn more about this blog, I "googled" One Lovely Blog Award. It seems it started by 2009 and is not limited to genealogy blogs. Many of the first nominees blogged about wine. Who knew there were wine blogs? As the award has wandered around the blogosphere the requirements have changed. Some "winners" were required to nominate 7, 10 or 15 blogs that were sometimes meant to be new to the nominee and other times simply favorites. One list of requirements I found said the nominee was to list 15 things about themselves as well.
It seems to me the object of this, and similar, awards is to promote blogs and that is a worthy aim. So, like Adam and others I will tweak the requirements yet again.
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person(s) who granted the award and their blog link.
2. Pass the award to a few of your favorite blogs and/or other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
My nominations are:
- Cleveland Area History: this blog was written up in The Plain Dealer recently. I'd never heard of it before, but it looks like it will be very interesting.
- Breaking Free: this one hasn't been updated in a while which is a shame. Mike's musings always make you think.
- Images Past: Jo always has the most amusing anecdotes about her family photos. I don't think my ancestors were near as interesting as hers.
- Scottish GENES: if you want to know what's happening in Scotland regarding documents, talks, and meetings, Chris Patton's blog is the place to go.
- The Journey Takers Blog: Leslie jumped into the blogosphere last fall to share adventures relating to her book and life in general.
- The Kuziura Family - Our Life on the "Begonia": a friend of mine from high school and her family have taken off for year to sail the Atlantic. It sounds marvelous.
