Illuminating Blog

Preservation and Place would like to thank Linda Ellis of Exploring almost forgotten gravesites in Ohio for awarding me an “Illuminating Blogger Award.”  The award originated at the Food Stories blog, and is an award that fellow bloggers give to the blogs they find illuminating and informative.

One of the fun requirements of this award is that I share a random fact about myself, so here it is: I am a baseball nut and compete in online fantasy baseball tournaments during the baseball season.

Another fun requirement is that I get to nominate others for this award.  If you haven’t checked out the following, please do:

Bricks + Mortar

The History Tourist

Wine and History Visited

Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast

Florence and the Historian

  2. Thanks so much for the nomination!
