A Letter to My Readers

Like you, I have been very busy these past couple of weeks getting ready for Christmas, so today after returning from shopping I was totally caught off guard when a reader sent me an email congratulating me on being nominated for Family Tree’s 40 Best Genealogy Blogs for 2011. I was just a little surprised. What a lovely early Christmas Present.

I never thought I would be saying this, as cliche as it sounds, it truly is an honor to have just been nominated. What does it mean? …….. it means you are reading my posts and more importantly finding value in them.

It certainly motivates me on those lonely days when I think I am  talking to myself. And those times when I am certain, I am the only one who gets excited about a new found website, or writing your family history, or sharing a favourite family recipe. I try to write about things I would love to read about and learn about and hopefully with a little knowledge and a lot of reality. It’s nice to know that I am part of a community who values my contribution. For that I thank you.

It is not in my personality to solicit your vote, (unlike some others....uhhh… Ancestry Insider). I believe if you really really like me you’ll do that on your own. However, if you need a little information on how to do that, (since that seems to be the category I am in), you can place your vote here, and you can see the entire list of nominees here.

You can vote as many times as you like, but only until Monday December 20th, so don’t procrastinate, it’s just like, that dancing show, and Idol show, your favourites won’t win unless you vote. I know I will be voting.

Thanks Again! Lynn
