Alona, you make me feel like dancing...

...a Genealogy Happy Dance.

Early this week Alona Tester, one of a small band of young enthusiastic Australian geneabloggers, nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award. Thank You Alona for selecting my blog; knowing that a fellow geneablogger appreciates my efforts provides great encouragement to keep on blogging.

As I want to encourage some of those bloggers I love to read but whose blogs for one reason or another (they may be very new) do not appear in the Must Read list with which I am connected I will nominate them. Their blog addresses are in my Inoreader RSS feed and I love it when they post. I hope that you will take a look at these blogs and add them to your RSS feeds.

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:
• Thank the person that nominated you and link back to that blog.
• Share seven things about yourself – see below.
• Nominate 15 bloggers you admire – also listed below (or as many as you can think of!).
• Contact your bloggers to let them know you’ve tagged them for the One Lovely Blog Award.
Seven (Bloggy) Things About Me
  • I have been blogging since 2003
  • I chose the nickname GeniAus years ago because I was frightened of  revealing my true identity on the evil internet
  • My profile picture drawn by a grandchild seven years ago was also chosen because I was frightened of revealing my true identity on the evil internet
  • I have been geneablogging since 2008
  • I have a few dormant and practice blogs
  • After 11 years as a Blogger girl I am getting to know Wordpress
  • I have a new blog,, that I hope you will read.
Now for some nominations (Ten is enough for me)
Please don’t feel under any obligation to carry this forward; I am just using this opportunity share some blogs that I enjoy.

Thanks Jill. Wow, 11 years blogging, no wonder there's more and more Aussie bloggers. You're doing such a great job of spreading the word.

And what a fabulous list of bloggers on the bottom. I shall go and check each of them out.

I think one of the best things about these awards is learning more about people.
Congratulations on your well deserved nomination. I am now heading off to read (follow) your other blog.

Janelle Collins said...

Thanks Jill! I'm thrilled to be nominated.
Your blog is an inspiration to me :)

Sandy said...

Appreciate being nominated! Never know who is reading my blog! :o) Now...just having an even bigger challenge...trying to find 7 interesting facts about myself LOL!

Jenny Mackay said...

Awwww thanks Jill. I've been out in our caravan so hadn't seen your post until our family history society shared that you had nominated my Caddy blog. Now I need to get to and add some more to it. I've been busy galavanting around our state in our van, sometimes with no Internet, and in the meantime created another blog, so between the two, I'm kept pretty busy.

Alex Daw said...

Dear Jill - I've nominated you for the Award too. Bask in the glory!

GeniAus said...

Thanks so much Alex. Rather than slect another set of blogs I will just "bask in the glory" as you put it and add a postcript to this post.

Shelley Crawford said...

Thank you Jill for the nomination! I shall have to think about the seven things, and about the bloggers I want to nominate!

Thanks Jill, I'm honoured to be on your list. I didn't think anyone was reading my blog.
