Blog Awards 2010

by JL Beeken on 12-13-2010

Blog awards time again. While I was cruising through my website stats, I clicked on a link going back to something about awards and found out someone nominated my blog for the 2010 Family Tree Magazine’s Top 40 Genealogy Blogs in the Technology category. Really?

If you’re me you don’t really see this kind of thing coming. Um … I wonder if it’s the same person who signed me up for some high-falutin’ technology conference that sends me invites every year to present papers. Present papers? I have just one thing to say to you: You do realize I just purchased my first cellphone recently and I haven’t read the manual yet? Every time it rings I jump out of my skin because I don’t know what to do with it.

Anyway, get over there and vote because voting only lasts another week. You can vote as many times as you want. I could sit here all day (because I’m old and sitting is easy) and vote for JLog over and over. Then in July, when they announce the winners, I could be like, “Hey, look at me, I won! What a surprise!”

I’m definitely voting for Sandusky History because my family’s from there so I want to support their continuance. Totally self-serving.

Don’t vote for me because the pressure’s too much with the mantle-of-greatness I’d have to start wearing. And I’d get all cranky from taking myself seriously.

What I’m going to do next is go over to Google Reader and subscribe to all those other nominees because I don’t know who most of them are. I suspect most of them don’t know who I am.

For all you Google Reader-ers, there’s a shortcut under Settings/Reader Settings/Goodies where you can drag and drop a ‘subscribe’ link to your bookmarks. You still have to be signed in to your account but it makes subscribing quicker. Like, if you have to hurry up and catch up on 116 other blogs.

Subscribe, Google Reader

Congrats on the nomination. This is one of the best acceptance speeches out there. You’re definitely what those high-falutin’ conferences need. Good luck!

Just stopped by as I am cruising through all of the blogs I haven’t read yet. Yours is excellent and actually does have good technology info, even if you don’t know how to use your phone yet. My advice, adopt a kid or two. They are very adept at doing funky things with my phone.

If I could just get used to the sound of it ringing. It doesn’t ring. It sounds like a radio alarm clock set to the most obnoxious station possible. Ok, ok, I’m awake now …
