Dear readers,

Clanmother has been nominated for the prestigious Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Maarit-Johanna and her thought-provoking blog, History of the Ancient World.  I am honoured to accept the nomination because, in my view, our blogging community is all about inspiration.

The best part about receiving a nomination is discovering others in the blogger community.    Maarit-Johanna inspires readers to embrace and integrate the knowledge and wisdom of the past so that they can participate in the dialogue of history.
