Blogger Community Clanmother Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

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. Blogging has become a way in which to network and share across the world. John Donne eloquently captured this idea when he wrote:

“No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent…

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.

There are four requisites to accepting a Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

1)      Link back to the person who nominated you.

2)      Post the award image to your page.

3)      Tell 7 facts about yourself

4)      Nominate 15 other blogs

The credit goes to History of the Ancient World.  I am honoured to have bloggers like Maarit-Johanna stop by for a visit and share their thoughts and ideas. Never before have we had the technology to communicate across the globe to celebrate the story of our generation.

I’m relatively new to WordPress – my launch was May 1, 2012.  I love art, music, history and travel.  I take my camera wherever I go – even for short walks – so that I can document the moments that give insight and joy.  Every day, I challenge myself to learn something new and be open to new possibilities.   But most of all, I love connecting with others and hearing their stories.  We live complicated lives that are exceptional and full of adventures.

Accepting this award has given me the opportunity to thank bloggers for their efforts in creating remarkable blogs. My nominees are, in random order:

1)      WalkTassie  A world until itself – adventures is Tasmania

2)      Lizzie Joy’s Photo Suite  Celebrates life through the art of photography.

3)      Micheline Walker’s Blog  Micheline integrates art, music and knowledge.

4)     Henrietta’s Hippo  Every post is an inspiration.

5)     The Nice thing About Strangers Non-Fiction Short Stories from around the world.

6)      Badpuppet Productions   Inspiring photos that capture the imagination.

7)      Valerie Davies Her life is an inspiration.

8)      Life Through The Kitchen Window  Musings on food and life.

9)      Reflections of the… A blog that captures and shares moments of both past & present.

10)   Wood and Rope A blogger that shares my love of the seaside.

11)   Anarya Andir’s Blog  I love the tag line: scribbles, thoughts and a few forgotten memories…

12)   A Nature Mom  Inspiring mother!!!

13)   Project Inspired Life Facilitating Positive Transformation

14)   Uthamz A beautiful and inspiring photo blog.

15)   Ekostories Connecting narratives to nature, culture, and self…

Blogging has been a way to stretch my knowledge and gain a fresh perspective of the incredible world in which we live.  I look forward to the ongoing dialogue.

Embracing life and open to possibilities,

Rebecca aka Clanmother

Well, well! Another nomination and my list of intelligent bloggers is growing! What a great bunch! Congratulations to all for making a valuable contribution. We need to remind ourselves that we know about history because someone wrote about it.


Thank you…you are right about history. We must document our timelines for others – now and in the future to understand that we are all a part of the whole.And yes, there are amazing bloggers that are responding to the call…


And thank you for accepting the nomination! I look forward to reading your blog – I love the sea. As John Masefield wrote: “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,”


There is something about the sea!!! “Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
