Dear Readers,

Clanmother has been nominated for the distinguished Family of Bloggers Award by Cristi M at Simple.Interesting. I am honoured to accept the nomination because, in my opinion, our blogging community is about being a family.  Bloggers from across the world, come together to create a community that thrives on the exchange of ideas, information, knowledge and wisdom.  We live, write and breathe diversity. We may come from different countries and cultures, even speak different languages, but one thing is certain: we all want to make a difference.  With every post, every comment and every photo, we add value, humour and encouragement to the conversation.

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.
