Before I start let me first just say that I am terrible with doing awards because I tend to see my fellow bloggers as fellow friends and neighbors. To me, my blog roll is my neighborhood as far as I am concerned. Since I want to be fair though I will do my best in trying to do this right and by the rules.
I thank Missus Tribble for nominating me for the Blog Of The Year 2012 Award. I am usually not good about awards because I am slightly absent-minded about them. Sot let me throw on something fast, heavy, and metallic so I can keep my typing constant and not be here until next tuesday trying to type this while over-thinking everything.
The “Blog of the Year” is a unique award in that 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.
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, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
