....A Pause in Our Regularly Scheduled Program....

I need to pause in my regular type of blog post to acknowledge and thank Jacqi Stevens of A Family Tapestry for nominating this blog along with a couple of others for Blog of the Year 2012.  I was surprised, yet pleased and at the same time a little uncomfortable with accepting and passing this on.  But I can see the fun in breaking from regular posts long enough to give a pat on the back to fellow bloggers and I see the value  in directing others to blogs that I have found helpful and informative so I will pass on the honor.  

I have learned such a variety of things from other people's blogs.  How to research, how to write, what to write and what not to write, what new tools are available and how others have broken down that inevitable brick wall that we all encounter.  There are many many good blogs, but I would like to nominate:

Shelley at A Sense of Family

I would like to invite you to visit their blogs and explore all that they have to offer!
