Top 40 :: Humbled and Honored



Congratulations to each and every blog nominated for the Family Tree Magazine list of 40 Best Genealogy Blogs. This blogger was extremely humbled and honored just to be nominated this past autumn(thank you, to you-know-who-you-are) . . . and never thought for a minute that benotforgot would be in the top 40! Thanks and {hugs} to each and every individual who took the time to vote, and helped benotforgot make its way into this illustrious company of geneabloggers.

As of just a few days ago, it has now been six (6) years since the word combination benotforgot popped into my head, and I immediately purchased the domain name, benotforgot.com . . . and it's almost two years since I made my very first post on this blog. Just about this time last year, in celebration of one year of blogging on this blog, I set up a 2nd blog . . . benotforgot-calendar.blogspot.com . . . where I post a daily listing of that day's events from the limbs and branches and leaves of my family tree (plus a few other trees in the surrounding forest). In January of this year, my 3rd blog went live . . . benotforgot-journal.blogspot.com . . . where I am making a daily entry from a 150-year-old civil-war-era journal that frequently mentions several of my ancestors. And the absolute highlight of all of this?

Making The List!

  • P.S. I tried to keep this Top 40 collage generic enough in case any of the honorees want to use it for something . . . you're welcome to it . . . enjoy . . . and congratulations! V.

  • P.P.S. And thanks to Family Tree Magazine and Diane Haddad and Maureen Taylor for organizing the nominating and voting for this list, and for compiling the information and the write-ups about each Top 40 blog. There are soooo many wonderful genealogy blogs out there, so I know that was an awful lot of work!

Thank y'all all for stopping by . . . I do appreciate each and every one of you . . . and congrats to y'all, too, Greta & Sheri & Thomas & fM & Apple & Midge . . . I still can't quite believe I'm on that list with y'all!

All I'm doing is getting the family stories out of my house and out into the world for any kith 'n kin that might be interested . . . not much fun just keeping it all to myself . . . just never expected to make such connections with folks who are not even related . . . {hugs} to you all . . . V. . . .

Midge, if you want to use the collage, please do, with my blessings . . . V. . . .
