Many thanks to Pauleen of Family history across the seas for nominating my work for the “Blog of the Year 2012 Award”.  Am still amazed that so many people are interested in the Family Stories I write and to be recognised by my peers, in this way, is almost unbelievable.

Huge congratulations to others whom Pauleen has nominated. The details can be found by clicking HERE.

    • Thanks so much Frances… they sure a a whole heap of beauties, eh? … So glad some are already your favourites and maybe you’ll find a few more which also appeal 🙂 … Cheerio for now.

  1. Thanks so much for the nomination, Catherine. I am honoured to be included in your list.

    My thinking hat is on and I will respond with my nominations shortly.

    Regards, Jill

  2. I was certainly pleased to nominate you Catherine – your many followers testify to the appeal of your stories, and the way you tell them (must be the Irish in you!) The other nice thing is that you’ve nominated so many others that I really enjoy, so I’m certainly getting “bang for my buck” 🙂 Also good to see a non-FH blog in there. I’m confident your following will continue to grow in 2013. Pauleen

    • ha ha ha… Well I did “kiss the Blarney Stone” when in Ireland Pauleen 😀 Now there’s a blog I should write, eh? {chuckle} Seriously, as you know my “target audience” (so to speak) is my family near or far, known or unknown for it seems I have a responsibility to the Ancestors to pass on their stories. If others also enjoy my writings and it encourages them to do the same, then that really is “the cherry on top of the cake”. Thanks for being such a great support from the time that I tentatively took to this blogging “gig” ❤
