A few days ago when I logged on to WordPress, I found an exciting surprise waiting for me that left me quite speechless. For anyone who knows me, this is a major feat.
Roly over at Comedy in Crisis awarded me a newly created award called The Blog of the Year Award 2012. Roly has an amazing spirit. He shares his life in South Africa with his children and wife with a unique perspective in a Dave Barry-ish sort of story telling manner. He is very funny, and I love reading his blog for the laughs it gives me, as well as the underlying moral that is sometimes part of his stories.
As you can see there is one gold star with the possibility of six in total.
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!
Blogs to Award:
Let me just add that I appreciate everyone’s blogs. The more we read and pass these around, the more bloggers get involved. I had posted recently that I wasn’t going to accept awards anymore, because they really are very time consuming. But I thought this was a little bit different and worthy, plus, I wanted to pass it on. Thank you to everyone who has stuck by me in this dry spell I seem to have hit. I know that eventually the sun will shine brightly again.
