One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

Earlier this month I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Sharon at Genealogymatters2me and Aillin at Australian Genealogy Journeys. Thanks Sharon and Aillin for this nomination which I’m very pleased to accept…it’s nice to know that others enjoy reading some of my blog. I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to get to this post… a few busy family weeks.

One issue with the award is that the favourites tend to get swamped by repeated nominations, while some excellent blogs are unlikely to want to continue the chain. However as I enjoy these sites I thought others might like to look at them too, if they don’t already follow them. I’ve diversified into non-genealogy blogs for this award, just for the fun of it.

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.

This post offers some sites to which I pass on this award –some new to me, others old favourites – so you can have a look at them.

The Magpie’s Fancy for great writing strategies and insights.

French Essence for its wonderful writing and even more fabulous images. I love reading about Vicki’s French life!

Chic Provence – I love the image of the pink chair and the flood of pink camellias.

Discovering Darwin for some local knowledge tips by someone who recently arrived in Darwin and wanted to learn the ropes.

Living Delilah lives in Brisbane, Australia and has an interest in the old-style skills that we used to take for granted, but with a new spin.

Butter Hearts Sugar for some oh, so tasty treats (Week 13’s topic turned up this wonderful site)

Dolls Houses Past & Present administered by my friend Rebecca who is passionate about dolls houses and family history and combines the skills from FH to assist with tracing the dolls houses.

Mind Gardener for great strategies to re-train your mind into positive and healthy thinking.

Toowoomba & Darling Downs Family History Society for genealogical news relevant to the Darling Downs in Queensland.

Wholesome Cook is another discovery arising from Week 13’s “52 weeks” blog about sweets.

On a Flesh & Bone Foundation even though it’s been awarded previously but because it addresses Irish research issues so effectively and because the writing is so good.

Family Archeologist for East European and German research.

The Armchair Genealogist remains one of my personal favourites for motivating family historians to write their stories.

No more wriggling out of writing woman for her family history stories, English interest/travel and addressing mental health issues.

Now I need to go and let everyone know they’ve been nominated.

  1. Hi Pauleen..thanks for the honor, I am thrilled to be nominated by you. And your blog is fascinating..I’ll read more. Love geneology, my aunt has traced us a crusader in England and a sea captain captured by French pirates in 1790’s. Just for starters! Have a gorgeous weekend!




  2. Congratulations on the award, and thank you so much for passing the award on to my blog! I’m honored.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend! xo Gigi


  3. Thanks Judy and Geniaus. I agree, Judy, we do get just a touch obsessive about our FH so I enjoy looking at these others. I’m off to look at your list of 15. Pauleen


  4. Hello Pauleen,
    What a lovely way you presented the Lovely Blog award to all your recipients. I’m delighted to learn about your blog. I just read your spring post, which came after this one. I’ll post my comments there specifically, but thank you so much for the nomination. I’ll be sure to mention your site on my blog as well. It’s great to see the perspective from the other end of the world. would love to come to Australia some time!


    1. Thanks Linda, much appreciated. I’m very much enjoying seeing how differently we all experience these common topics, and in a few cases with people from the same place,how similar the experiences. You’d enjoy seeing Oz I’m sure -lots to see and so different from a lot of other places. Pauleen
