This is far from the normal post I would write here, however it mainly refers to this blog.

“Wonderful Team Member Readership Award” nominations…

 This brand New Year has commenced with a wonderful surprise, with receiving a Nomination from caiteile, otherwise known as Catherine, of

for The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. 

 The idea is to pass on the Award, which is nowhere as easy as you would think, as I am blessed with so many great readers, so, as Catherine did, I will go back to the rules to decide...
The rules are as follows...


(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…”

For me,  a great reader is... someone who encourages and supports you by letting you know when a blog touches them, or encourages them to learn more about the subject you have written about. They also respond when you comment on something they have written.

 My nominations to pass on the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award are:

1) Angela         A Silver Voice From Ireland
(2) Fi                  Dance Skeletons
(3) Pauleen      Family history across the seas
(5)  Cassie        Inside History Magazine Blogspot
(6) Aillin            Australian Genealogy Journeys
(7) Sharn          FamilyHistory4u

 Thank you to each and every one of my readers, I always welcome your comments.
