I humbly accept the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award and pay the honor forward.
When I was notified by Liv Taylor-Harris, at Claiming Kin, that she nominated me for the Readership Award I was quite taken back; shocked and speechless best describe my reaction. I read about the award on Twitter, and thought to myself, “What a wonderful award to receive,” and at the same time felt I was not yet in that league. When I began sharing my ancestors story just under 6 months ago; I was almost terrified in getting my stories out. Taking the big step of blogging appeared intimidating. However, Liv comments and others, gave me a greater confidence in blogging.
Being honored by Liv Taylor Harris at http://claimingkin.com has so much meaning. Her attractive blog is filled with family stories/research/pics of her Texas kin as well as tips, and bits. I often visit to catch up with the latest in the gene-world, as well as catch a glimpse of her visitors from around the globe. Whenever you stop by, browse, and leave a comment, she always takes the time to respond. Liv’s heart is as big as the state of Texas. Thank you again for your nomination.
Those who created this award wrote, “As bloggers, we are also readers. That is a part of blogging as listening is a part of speaking.”
Those bloggers nominated for awards are expected to “pay the honor forward.”
Here are the rules 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…”
This is my sentence:
“A great reader is one who approaches every word with an openness to learn, question, and comment with words of encouragement, laced with kindness.”
As I pay the honor forward
