I was surprised and appreciative that Mariann thought of me and my blog. She writes such an inspiring and well researched blog herself that I’m sure Mariann had many, many folks to choose from.

The creators of The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award had one thought, “As bloggers, we are also readers. That is a part of blogging as listening is a part of speaking.”

Not only do I get the opportunity to receive this thoughtful nomination. I get the opportunity to acknowledge my blog readers as well. The bloggers nominated for this award are expected to “pay the honor forward.” Here are the rules we’re all supposed to follow:
(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…”
“A great reader takes the time to respond to a blog post, interacting with the author and letting him/her know how their words touched or motivated the reader.”
Now to unveil the bloggers who have read and responded to my blog posts! I’d like to gratefully nominate these blog readers:

Terri O’ConnellFinding Our Ancestors

Debi AustenWho Knew

Stephanie Pitcher FishmanCorn and Cotton

I also have an “Honorable Mention” list. Not that these great readers don’t deserve the award but they have already received it! Yet I want them to know how very grateful I am that they take the time to read my blog and comment.

Thank you again Mariann for your nomination and to all who read my blog. I appreciate your support and comments! The genealogy community is very helpful and supportive. I’m so lucky to be a part of it! Thank you!

  1. Cindy, you are so welcome! I am glad to be able to show my appreciation for your comments and enthusiasm. Thank you for your extremely kind words about my blog, as well. As you know, I find yours interesting and lively, too. I’m glad to see the people you nominate — one thing about this award is that it introduces people to each other!

    (I do have a confession to make: “Miranda,” above, is probably me. At one point people’s comment softwares led me to the name “miranda709″ which may have something to do with Google or Gmail, I’m not sure. But I’ve gone back and corrected most of those. Thought I’d better mention that!)

    Looking forward to continuing our online relationsip!

    • LOL!! Mariann! That’s funny! I tried to “find” miranda709 but couldn’t. I was left with emailing “her” and just hadn’t done it yet!
      Thank you for ALL the times you have stopped by and commented. It means a great deal!

  2. I’m happily joining in with the congratulations Cindy. Your gracious acceptance, and paying it forward, is a delight to read. I’m new to your blog and enjoying it immensely. Many thanks,.
