Well, look at that, would you? Imagine my delight when I awoke, loaded my “readers” section and found Eunice over at http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com had listed my little blog (among many, many other wonderful recipients) for this award.
Rosa would’ve been so proud, if a bit clueless as to what all the hullabaloo is about.
So, bear with me as I can’t wait to pass this along… and please know, you’ve all meant a great deal to me this year. Thank you for becoming part of my life and I wish you all the best…
To Lynne at http://freepennypress.wordpress.com for her heartfelt posts. What an amazing gift with words you have!
And just to complete Pauline’s state of chaos, as she really must be “chuffing” (I also nominated her for another award just last night) well… here’s to you, my dear cyber-friend, you are far more than ordinary. I’ve loved seeing some of your country through your lens, your knitting and your words. Thanks so much. You can see her at: http://paulineknits.wordpress.com.
to Denise at http://justasiamdenise.wordpress.com for taking on blogging, work, art and life. You are an inspiration – you deserve both awards (yup, passed one along to her last night, too).
to my wonderful poet-friend, Ashi Akira who always responds to my questions about his country, no matter how foolish and adds such beauty to my day with his incredible Haiku poems. Please tell ‘em I said “Hi”. He’s at http://ashiakira.wordpress.com/
to Kim over at http://mouthfulofwords.wordpress.com/ because she simply doesn’t have enough to do, what with raising her babies, writing a script about her distant Irish grandfather, publishing a story in an anthology and writing a blog. Whew, that’s a mouthful right there! And now I’ve gone and added yet another task (umhum, she got an award nod last night).
To my sweet new blogger- daughter, Miss Word Bird at http://spiralbindings.wordpress.com/ because… well… just because she’s pushed through writer’s block all year and came out writing one of the most sophisticated and moving novels and I am so proud…
to El over at http://runningfromhellwithel.wordpress.com/ Even though wordpress won’t let me follow her blog, and only lets me comment on random Tuesdays… let’s hope I’ll be able to today…
For all of you and others I’ve only begun to get to know, I want to say “thanks”… for your views, comments and good reads. I no longer live in a vacuum. You’ve rehabilitated a hermit and sent me flying into the 21st century!
My love, always.
Now, onto business: here is the linkback for the Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/
And here is information on how to pass this award along:
Do you know a blog that deserves an award?
Do you have special blogs that you love to read?
Which blogs do you bookmark and follow?
Would you like to give them an award this year?
Then the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award is for you!
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 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’ 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!)
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 and 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.
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!
‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Badges
Here are the six badges for you to collect – you can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award – or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award six times!
