The Fourth and Fifth Stars! Blog of the Year!

I got another two stars! Blog of the Year Award 4 star jpegThank you Eunice over at Living and Lovin  – http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com/ who nominated me. She is a little treasure, isn’t she just! Betake yourself over there (get that – betake – I am in Dickensian mode for Christmas, it seems!) to discover what jewels you may amongst her verbage. Ok, enough of that. No one will understand a single word if you keep that up! And thank you too to Niamh over at http://ontheplumtree.wordpress.com/ who has given me my fifth star! Blog of the Year Award 5 star jpegShe is another blogger whose posts are so varied it is difficult to pigeon-hole her, so you will just have to pop over and find out what she is all about.

I can’t quite believe all this. As a relatively new Blogger – I began towards the end of July – I am delighted when people enjoy reading what I have to say, telling me that they like my stories and odd poems. I am honoured to receive your awards and delighted to pass them on to others.

My nominations are going to be short and sweet and I apologise profusely to all my lovely blogging friends whom I miss out, but this is just because I am so short of time – my Christmas visitors are imminent – I appreciate all of you who come and read and comment and take the time to get to know me and my work, so please bear with me and forgive my omissions, as I nominate:





All these have blogs I admire, love to read and enjoy hanging out on.

So the award, which you might know a bit about by now, goes like this:

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. Yes, in progress.

3 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!
