I want to give my appreciation to all the wonderful people I’ve met through the WordPress blogging experience. It’s been so much fun meeting people and getting to know many of you.

I especially want to thank Sue Slaght from Travel Tales of Life for her untiring efforts to encourage me. She is my number one commenter! Sue has taught me so much about how to put together an entertaining and impactful blog. Not that I’ve learned to do that at all but she is a number one model of this.

I also want to thank Pierre Lagace. He is my number two commenter! He has taught me so much about how to blog about ancestry.

Next, I’d like to thank gpcox at Pacific Paratrooper for their many likes and comments about the Korean war and other related material. I love war memorial sites. I think gpcox does a great job of remembering our war heroes.

Fourth, I’m happy to know Mihran. He is a very supportive and kind man. Thank you Mihran for all of your support and your music is beautiful!

Fifth, I’m grateful to have met sf at Untitled press who writes great Korean blogs and who appreciates Korean dramas and other cultural aspects of Korea.

Sixth, Juliann at Browsing the Atlas is my next prolific commenter. She writes very thoughtful comments and has a great travel blog. She visits many USA sites, and has interesting anecdotes to write on unassuming places.

I appreciate Paul Militaru for his excellent photography and his ongoing support of my blog.

I want to nominate Sarah/Marigold at Versus Blurb for this award too. She’s got a great writing site.

I appreciate Ju-won Kang for his informative posts on Korean life and issues that affect foreigners here as well as native Koreans.

I love T Ibara’s blog. She does beautiful wildlife photos. I’d like to nominate her too for this award.

I’m really happy to be in contact with tkmorin from Bite size Canada. This is a great Canadian content blog.

And Aquila because we have some common ancestry through marriage anyway. It’s great to have met you through our blogs.

I’d also like to thank Fawn at Triggershorse for nominating me for the Lovely blog award. Her blog is full of great stories about life and I enjoy our back and forth prayers.
