I was thrilled this morning to discover that this blog, Geniaus, has been nominated for the Family Tree Magazine 40 2011 Top Genealogy Blogs. Thanks to those people who nominated my blog - I am humbled to be on a shortlist in such august company.
As I have been at work all day I haven't been able to share my excitement through the blog and on Facebook until now (I did manage to send out a few tweets during the day).
I am a very proud Australian as I don't think there are any other Australian blogs on the list. Wouldn't it be fantastic if Geniaus could represent our nation in the Top 40 for 2011. As most of the blogs on the shortlist are from countries with huge populations and voter bases it will take some sort of miracle for my efforts to make the 40.
I need help to put Australia on the genealogy blogging map. Please cast a vote more than once and spread the word by whatever means you can to garner the support of the Australian genealogy community.
Geniaus blog is listed in The Heritage category. I don't think you have to vote in all categories.
