Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegBlog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

I have been nominated for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award by













I had received this award once before, so this gives me a total of 12 stars.  I apologize because now I realize that the award says 2012, so my awardees may not want to pass it on, or may want to change it to 2013, so I’m not sure how that will work.  Each of you can make that decision.  I received all of these in 2012, but it was during my break.  I wasn’t thinking of the new year.  Sorry about that.

The “Blog of the Year” award is a little different from some other awards, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the ‘rules’ for this award:

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.  I don’t have a Facebook account so I can’t join that group.

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 favorite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

Thank you once again for all those who awarded me, I’m very honored!!!

Since I have 11 Blog of the Year Awards to give out and I have only three awardees, I will leave it up to you three how many stars you would like to take.

My awardees are:





Thanks everyone!
