Dear readers,

Clanmother has been nominated for the celebrated The Addictive Blog Award by Maarit-Johanna and her addictive blog, History of the Ancient World.  I am honoured to accept the nomination because, in my view, our blogging community is about being “addicted” to bringing our world together.  We may be separated by oceans, continents and mountains, but in “blogging” miles, the distance is small, even irrelevant.  Conversely, our world of thought and connection is ever-increasing.  Henry David Thoreau understood this concept years before the advent of our amazing technology:

“Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.”

On July 26, 2012, Clanmother received a nomination for One Lovely Blog Award by Maarit-Johanna and her fascinating blog, History of the Ancient World.  I am honoured to accept the nomination, but I’m even more excited to connect with a fellow blogger who shares my interest in historical events.  If you ever want to discover the excitement of the ancient world, you will want to read  Maarit-Johanna’s blog.

 

After a bit of research on the forums, I understand are three rules to accepting a One Lovely Blog Award:

1)      Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.

2)      Describe 7 things about you.

3)      Nominate 15 bloggers.
