There’s a brand new award called the Blog of the Year 2012 Award. I received it from Alyson at Algarve Blog, and I’m really happy to be chosen for this honor. Take a look at Alyson’s blog and find out about her life in Portugal. And it’s especially appealing now that winter is approaching (at least where I am)…

Here’s more about the award from Alyson:

The ‘rules’ for the award are simple:

- Select the blog(s) you think deserve the
**‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award**
- Write a blog 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
- Please include a link back to this page
**‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award** – 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!)
- Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
- You can now also join our Facebook page – click the link here
**‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook page** https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/ and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
- 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 and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
