After getting the dust to settle after moving my blog to its new home, I did a Google search on “smokycogs” to see if there are any remaining references to my domain that I need to update, and came across something very interesting.

It appears that my blog has won the Best Open Source Blog award in the GeneaBlog Awards 2010.

While my site is aimed primarily at programming, they felt that I had enough genealogy content, with my posts on Family Traces and how to build a genealogy app, that my site deserved the award.

While I do not know how esteemed this award is, I am at least glad that this award is a sign that the information on my site is at least of some use to people.
