I'm behind because of the holidays so I haven't acknowledged the Proximidade Award given to the CGSL blog by Miriam Robbins Midkiff of AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors blog. Thanks so much, Miriam!
These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Like Becky, I'm not terribly sure of what that means exactly but it's always great to be acknowledged! The downside of these memes and awards is trying to find blogs who haven't already received the award. Here are eight blogs I've begun following recently:
97 Things To Do Before I Turn 97
Anna-Karin's Genealogical Blog
Conversation with Ancestors Past
Kathy's Genealogy Blog
The Genealogy Genie
Please stop by and take a look at the winners. I'll be visiting their blogs to leave a message in the comments section of their most recent posts to let them know that they are recipients.
