Blog of the Year 2012 Award II

I’m writing this post to say I’ve been nominated for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award five times since I received my first star back in November.  This is really exciting!

First I’d like to thank these wonderful blogs for the nominations:

Canadiantravelbugs’s Blog

Susartandfood’s Blog

Francine in Retirement

AllThingsBoys Blog

DUTCH goes ITALIAN

Here’s the updated award:

Blog of the Year Award 6 star thumbnail

The ‘rules’ for the award are simple:

  1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
  2. 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
  3. Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Awardhttp://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 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
  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 and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

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.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

And now here are my nominations:

The World is a Book…

the travelbunny

Elisa Ruland

zoetic * epics

Denobears

If you accept awards and would like to participate, that would be great!  But in any case I want to congratulate all of you for your excellent blogs!  Meg

Blog of the Year 2012 Award

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:
