Maybe it was excitement from Pauline s Blog of the Year 2012 nomination or maybe it was the incessant cries of MUUUM! that distracted me, but I somehow managed to overlook a Blog of the Year 2012 nomination from Catherine Crout-Habel from the blog Seeking Susan – Meeting Marie-Finding Family. Last night when she drew my attention to my nomination, once again excitement set in. Two nominations for Blog of the Year 2012. Who would have thought?
Catherine wrote in my comments – “I want to thank you for the information you provide and the pleasure I get from your thorough research. Your Trove searches are brilliant. It therefore gives me great pleasure to nominate you for the “Blog of the Year 2012 Award”…”
Why thank you Catherine, I feel humbled by your kind words. But of course I couldn’t have done it alone. Trove, the resource, many of us know and love, plays a large part in my research and it is the information there , that is so easily accessible and searchable, that makes blogging so much easier and fun.
When I considered who would be my next nominees, I thought I would go for two Trovites. My nominations are:
Branches, Leaves and Pollen – Amy Houston – Since the end of August, Amy has sent many of us scrambling to Trove each week to find a special treasure for our Trove Tuesday posts. Thanks to Amy and her Trove Tuesday idea, I have been able to regularly share some of my Trove treasures. Also Amy has a knack of finding some great treasures and her blog is testament to that. Thank you and well done Amy.
Small History – Chloe Okoli – Thanks to Amy, I found Chloe and her blog Small History. Chloe has also been a regular contributor to Trove Tuesday and her well researched posts and her ability to write about history in a refreshing way, make it a pleasure to read. And she has big things planned for Small History in 2013. Well done Chloe.
Apologies to Catherine again for missing your comment and thank you for your nomination of Western District Families.
