Bloggers are readers too…

I’m taking a moment to break from the letters because I have some thanking to do. Since January I have been up to my eyeballs in my Boston University coursework, and I have been nominated for several blogging awards over the last three months. I have put these on the back burner until I had more time. Well, guess what, spring break just started for me. So I have already written my blog for tomorrow, and if I might say so, I think it is a good one so make sure you read it!

The first blogging award that I was nominated for was the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. I was given this honor by ljhlaura who writes the blog Branch and Leaf…a family history blog. Thank you! It really means a lot to me.

There are four easy requirements for this one.
1) Thank the nominator and link back to their site
2) Display the award logo on your blog
3) Nominate readers of your blog that you appreciate and let them know
4) Finish this sentence: ”A great reader ….”

I would like to thank some of my most faithful readers. They read my blog pretty much every day and they let me know it when they hit that “like” button. I must tell you what this means to me. It tells me that what I am doing is worthwhile. I might not have a huge following, but ultimately that does not matter. Having one or two faithful followers (or a dozen) out there who are truly interested in what I am doing is more important than having huge numbers  in my stats. (Ok, that would be great too.)  Thank you, thank you, thank to my faithful readers! You truly brighten my day.

And, of course, my dad (who doesn’t have a blog) but for whom I wouldn’t be doing this blog because he saved the letters from the trash heap decades ago.

And Oh, before I forget…A great reader is someone who takes time every day to read, in spite of ALL the distractions the world creates around us.

      You are very welcome. I grew up in New England and I had a lot of Jewish friends. I love reading your blog because doing Jewish genealogy isn’t something I have had any experience with doing at this point.
      Feel free to accept or to decline posting the award. Acceptance is not manditory. 🙂

    Thank you for the nomination!! So kind of you! I appreciate your blog and your thoughtful comments on mine, too. I keep thinking I need to start at the beginning here and catch up. 🙂

    Congratulations for your well deserved Award Deborah and thankyou so much for nominating me… you’ve taken my breath away and I feel very honoured … 🙂 Looking forward to reading the blogs of others you’ve named… that I don’t follow already.

      Thanks Paul! All these awards are given amongst bloggers. There really isn’t a nomination, you just get it. They are basically chain letters but they can be a fun way to read new blogs.

      I currently have just over 100 blogs that I follow in my wordpress blog reader. I am constantly looking for new blogs to read and follow. 🙂 Luckily, they don’t all post every day!
