Two fellow genealogists recently nominated me for a “The Thinking Blogger Award.â€ My honored thank you to Tim at Genealogy Reviews Online and Randy at Genea-Musings. The rules of this meme are pretty simple:
1. If you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think;
2. Link to the original post at The Thinking Blog (see above) so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme, and;
3. Optionally, display the â€œThinking Blogger Awardâ€ graphic.
Being the genealogist that I am, I was curious about the history of my particular award. The meme started on February 11, 2007 at The Thinking Blog, so it had 136 days to travel the blogospfhere!
The genealogy of my thinking blogger award is below, underneath the 5 blogs Iâ€™m nominating for the award. Amazingly, my award traveled through 70 blogs before it reached me! It traveled around the world, from the
Here are the five blogs I would like to nominate for the Thinking Blogger Award. I wish I could nominate everyone I enjoy reading so much (especially all my fellow DNA Network bloggers â€“ I wanted to nominate EyeonDNA and Scienceroll, but of course theyâ€™ve already been nominated), and unfortunately I canâ€™t nominate Tim or Randy again!
- PHD Comics â€“ If you have a Ph.D., or ever thought about getting one, this comic tells it exactly how it is.
- John Hawks Anthropology Weblog â€“ Always interesting information from the latest in the anthropological world (which of course is relevant for genetic genealogists and probably all geneticists).
- Dienekesâ€™ Anthropology Blog â€“ Ditto.
- Anthropology.net â€“ Ditto again.
- Anglo-Celtic Connections â€“ All the latest genealogical news.
Here is the genealogy of my Thinking Blogger Award:

It’s an honor that you wanted to nominate Scienceroll. 🙂
I was very amused that you traced the genealogy of your award! How clever!
By the way, you also were on my initial list of thinking bloggers before I discovered Bill and Tim had tagged you!
I am the author of Modern Musings and have been graced with the Thinking Blogger Award four times. Your take on this traveling meme is a wonderful way to show the many thinkers out here in the blogosphere. I thank you for highlighting my own site and wish you all the best for you and yours.
Be well and enjoy the day.
very cool! Thanks for the link up to Jolly Green Girl but now it’s the Accidental Environmentalist. I was wondering how I ended up on a Genetics blog. Now I know. 🙂
I’m one of your blog great grandmothers. 🙂
Some else a way back did this as well and it was interesting to see where my nomination led to and the growth of the award.
This week I was doing some review of my father’s efforts to locate members of his family line and it amazed me that we had gotten as far back as 9 generations including my children. I lamented that we have no images of the earliest members of our family dating from the late 1600s and have no diaries or journals that indicate a little bit more about them.
Wouldn’t it be great if they could reach across time like I’m reaching across the Interet to say, “Here I am. Come check me out.”?
Thank you for my moment in the sun.
Wow. I guess that makes me one of your distant, thinking relations.
This was a very interesting take on the meme heard round the world. Congratulations on the award.
What a cool thing you’ve done! I enjoyed following the legacy from inception of the thinking blogger award with Ilker through my site and to yours. Well done! And excellent of you to link to all along the way. Best,
I think this list missed few bloggers who were nominated:
