Congratulations to Eunice of Living and Lovin’ for her recent awards, and to my new blogging friend, Lori Lipsky, of Poetry Patio, who writes the most poignant verse! She has received numerous awards over the past few months too. Both delightful bloggers have added immeasurably to my enjoyment and they inspire me to try and try again. And it came as truly a big surprise when they both nominated me for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award. I thought the first time was “it”. But suddenly I can add two more stars to my original badge, making” it” truly a badge of honor. Thank you both!
And to reiterate:
The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award.
2 Write a post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen — there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required — and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/ - and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!).
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them.
5 You can now also join our Facebook group — click ‘like’ on this page: ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award Facebook group, and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience.
6 As a winner of the award, please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award, and then proudly display the award on your blog sidebar, and start collecting stars!
Yes — that’s right — there are stars to collect! Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once, this award is different! When you begin, you will receive the ’1 star’ award, and every time you are given the award by another blog you can add another star! There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
And the Nominees are….
As before, if you are on my blog roll (you know who you are), I am nominating you for this award. If you didn’t pick it up the first time, you may wish to now. And if you did pick it up the first time, you can add another star to your badge too! How cool is that? And if you are not on my blogroll yet (either because I’ve been too lazy or you are a new friend), if we are commenting to each other on our blogs, consider yourself nominated for this award as well! After all, you are definitely my favorites and if so, you are the most talented, brilliant, and wisest bloggers in cyberspace!
Have fun, enjoy, Congratulations, and by the way, HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Luv, Dor
