Kreativ Blogger Award
Here is the logo of Kreativ Blogger, which you may have seen on a few of the other blogs you have visited, whether genealogical or on some other topic. Thank you to Michelina for giving me a Kreativ Blogger Award for Ancestors Within.
I am very pleased that Michelina has been in touch with me because she has a wealth of knowledge to share through her own blog, Preserving Heritage.
You may know that I am interested in the origins of all sorts of things, not just my own heritage, so I have been doing a little research into the award. I am a social scientist by training so I tend to question everything!
Simon Leong, a food blogger from Sydney, Australia has done a wonderful job in identifying the origins of both the logo and the award. And I must admit here that have similar reservations as Simon about the award's "rules".

My own blogging experiences only began in January this year and I am yet to explore many other blogs. Researching and writing four blogs has been consuming rather a lot of my time so perhaps 2010 will be more of a reading year than a writing one. I would especially like to be able to read and reflect upon the blogs of all the people who have been following my blogs, and/or who have left some comments on them.
My other blogs are called Continual Journeys, By Any Other Name, and Quieter Living. I frequently write my blogs with only a modem connection, so I am especially appreciative of blogs that download more quickly than mine do!
Many of my older relatives find the Internet intimidating and most do not have a computer at all. I wonder what our great grandparents would make of it all...
