Announcing the Family Tree Magazine 40 Best Genealogy Blogs and a BIG Surprise!
I was just checking out TweetDeck and catching up on all the "news" before I went for my walk when I saw Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak (yes, this is her real name for those of you who are unaware) tweet "Congratulations to those on the #FT40! Genealogy Insider - Announcing the Family Tree Magazine 40 Best #Genealogy Blogs"
You may remember back in October of last year when I posted this~
I am so very honored to have had my blog nominated for the "40 Best Genealogy Blogs" with Family Tree Magazine! (I love this "Nomination Wordle Cloud" that Vicki at Be Not Forgotten made!) For me this was quite the compliment! The company Heritage Happens was with on this list! Wow! The cream of the crop, and I was among them! I have accomplished so much more than I ever anticipated upon starting my blog. I appreciated the nomination soooo very much! Thank you to those who nominated me!
I went ahead and sent a "Retweet" of Megans tweet, congratulating all of the winners also. Then, I moved forward to read the list and appreciate these top 40 winners. I pretty much knew who should be on the list IMHO. The "best of the best" of the wonderful Genea-Bloggers would have chosen for the top 40 from this very prestigious magazine.
The official announcement can be found at this link, the Family Tree Magazine Blog by Diane Haddad. Here is part of the announcement and a list of the winners. Again, my congratulations to everyone!
