One Lovely Blog Award

Thanks to Anglers Rest I have been presented with the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you Anglers Rest for this honour! 

The rules for accepting the award are:
  • Accept the ward, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted the award and their blog link. 
  • Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.
  • Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I follow a lot of blogs with Google Reader, so this has been a very difficult choice. Here are 15 blogs I have decided to nominate for the One Lovely Blog award, some of these are blogs I have only recently discovered, others are long time favourites. I have tried to include several Australian blogs, including some which are quite new to me. My criteria was: genealogy blogs with content I find interesting and useful and blogs which I consider to have a creative design.
Congratulations to these great blogs... 
[10 March 2011 - since I wrote this blog post last Monday I have realised that this award, particularly the requirement to mention and link to the blog of the person who gave it to you, could look a bit like a chain-letter for blogs. I realised the 'rules' for this award don't really reflect my personality - my attitude is to give and expect nothing in return. Therefore, I give this award (and receive it with many thanks!!) and link to these blogs because I find them interesting and useful and want to encourage the bloggers. I do not require any mention or link or anything, the award is yours anyway :-) Thanks to one of my recipients, Kylie at Blog Blog Blog, for helping me to recognise this through her post ]

[I edited this post and accidentally pressed 'save as draft' rather than 'publish post' and then I thought I had saved a duplicate so I deleted it - however I actually deleted the original which include two comments which also disappeared - I am so sorry about the disappearing comments!]

  1. Hallo Aillin, Well, I want to thank you so very much for nominating me and my blog with this Award. I'm chuffed to bits and am happy to add a link to you through my Award (which I have done).

    I, like you have chosen blogs to pass the Award on to that I find interesting, helpful and generally very good. I see nothing wrong in passing on the blog links to others who might not yet have come across these blogs or where the Award came from at an earlier stage.

    You've delighted me with the nomination, and I'm happy to show my thanks to everyone else, that they are for you! :-) Hope that makes sense?

    Kind regards,

    Christine (rootsresearcher at So That's Where I Get It From)

  2. Thanks so much Christine, was just feeling a bit unsure of myself - I'm so glad you appreciated the award :)

  3. Dear Aillin

    Thanks for "Awarding" my blog. It was a surprise. It is through awards and lists that I've found some interesting blogs to read myself. I just thought naming 15 was too many, especially when you want to avoid the ones that everyone probably already knows about. I think it's good to link to where the award came from as if you look at that post you can see even more blogs to check out. It was also a good experience to add comments to a number of different blogs - must say some make it easier than others.

  4. Hi Aillin
    Thanks very much for the award. I've only been blogging for 6 weeks but am really enjoying it. I just wish I had more time to devote. However, I am determined to write at least one post a week. I've passed the award on to 15 other blogs.

  5. hi Aillin

    Thanks for the award. I've been caught up with family commitments for a few weeks and have only just caught up on some of my blogs on google reader hence my delay. Cheers Pauleen


Your comments are appreciated. Thanks.
