I Accept the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award and Pay the Honor Forward

I absolutely LOVE surprises! So I cannot tell you how surprised I was to log online today to learn that I’ve been nominated — not once, not twice, but three times — for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award by Mariann Regan at Into the Briar Patch: A Family Memoir (click to read Mariann’s nomination) by Cheri Hudson Passey at Carolina Girl Genealogy (click to read Cheri’s nomination) and by Debra Newton-Carter at In Black and White: Cross Cultural Genealogy (click to read Debra’s nomination) . . . woo-hoo!

Wonderful Team Member Readership Award
I’ve never heard of this award before. But what I’ve learned about it from visiting Jana’s Genealogy and Family History Blog (she is a recipient of this award as well) is that the creator of the award said,

As bloggers, we are also readers. That is a part of blogging as listening is a part of speaking.”

I’m honored to receive this award from two WONDERFUL geneabloggers who in my opinion . . . ROCK! Mariann, Cheri, and Debra THANK YOU so much for nominating me; I truly appreciate you and this online connection I have with you!

Recipients of this award are expected to “pay the honor forward. So here are the award guidelines . . .
(i) Don’t forget to thank the nominator and link back to their site as well;
(ii) Display the award logo on your blog;
(iii) Nominate no more than fourteen readers of your blog you appreciate and leave a comment on their blogs to let them know about the award;
(iv) Finish this sentence: “A great reader is…”

Oh . . . how I wish I could nominate ALL of the readers who have stopped by and interacted with me here. But if I did, my nominations would go beyond the 14 reader max limit this award has outlined above – LOL!

So my 4 nominees below are some fierce and exciting family historians who I have enjoyed following along since I launched my blog 2 years ago!

((((((((((DRUM ROLL PLEASE!))))))))))

Dee @ Shakin’ the Family Tree: A Never Ending Journey

Kristin @ Finding Eliza: The Story of My Family – Past and Present

Robyn @ Reclaiming Kin: Taking Back What Was Once Lost

Shellye @ My Genealogical Journey: Danish West Indies Family History


Last, but certainly not least, I must finish this sentence – A great reader is  . . .

A great reader is someone who reads with the expectation of enlightenment and who knows how to respond honestly and thoughtfully to the blogger and about the blogger’s message!

  1. Liv, you are so welcome, and I value our online connection too! This award turns out to be a way of getting informed about other blogs. I knew of Robyn’s Reclaiming Kin blog, which is great, but I did not know about the others. I’ll save thost references for the future. Thanks!
