Kreativ Blogger

I’ve been nominated for a Kreativ Blogger award. Sweet! It’s nice  to know that there are some people out there that read my blog, let alone actually enjoy it! It's also rather encouraging.
As part of the nomination, the recipient is supposed to write seven things about themselves, along with nominating a further seven bloggers.

So, seven things about me:

1.    There is a strong suggestion in my family of Asian ancestry (Indian, Tamil, Sri Lankan etc), which may or may not be true. I intend on finding the truth, one way or the other.

2.    I am slowly, but surely, teaching myself to speak both Bundjalung and Yorta Yorta, my paternal grandparent’s languages.

3.    I work in I.T, for the state education department, whilst studying.

4.    At university I studied graphic design.

5.    I have a family tree that includes roughly 30 or more past and present professional Rugby League football players, which are also joined by a handful of professional Australian Rules football players and professional boxers.

6.    My primary interest outside of genealogy and my family is sustainability.

7.    Drink of choice – Theakston’s Old Peculier.

Seven nominee blogs to greatly enjoy, in no particular order:

1.    The Professional Descendant

2.    Twigs of Yore

3.    George Geder

4.    Ginisology

5.    Genealogy in New South Wales

6.    Rosie-Cotton

7.    Aussie Maria

Thank you so much John! I've only just found you, but I'll definitely be back!

I have no idea what Theakston's Old Peculier is, sounds deadly!
