Awards, Rewards & My Blogs Favourites

January may be a bleak month here in Scotland, but I am over the moon at being nominated for more blog Awards by my fellow bloggers on top of the two stars Blog of the Year Award recently received.

Thank you to Pauline (cassmob) at Family history across the seas for nominating me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award.  


Also my appreciation to  Diane at
for nominating me  for  the Liebster Award (Liebster means "friend" or "dearest" in German).

Thank you to everyone for first of all reading my blog,  and then for  thinking of me in this way.  I value the comments I get from all over the world and value the fact that people have taken  the time to make them. These are such a lovely Reward for blogging and  I certainly do not regard them lightly.

I have been asked to nominate further bloggers for the award.   This is such an invidious task to select a few from my reading list, as the genaabloggers community has  meant so much to me since I started blogging in August 2010.  I must admit to difficulty in keeping up with fellow blogger's activities.

So in the meantime, I have set up a new Page - My  Blog Favourites  -  where I am listing  the sites I aim to read and to comment on on a regular basis.   This won't be set in stone and I am sure I will add to it other great blogs that come to my cloae attention.  

So do have a look at it and maybe discover some new blogs that will provide interest, knowledge, stimulus, inspiration, humour and pathos to your reading and writing. All part of being in such a supportive blogging community.

Thank You to Everyone.

Happy researching and happy writing in 2013.     Susan.
