‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

The Thought Palette hosts the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award. And World Whisperer told me about it, in the sweetest way possible, she voted for me. That’s a very good opportunity to give some of the kindness back, I received from several bloggers.

World Whisperer nominated me, that means I got one star, hurray.

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!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

My Blogs of the Year 2012 are:

A whisper through the world in english, see above for obvious reason. And the puppies are so cute and the videos are so nice.

Rumpydog makes me laugh a lot and nothing is more precious than humour. You know, we Germans don’t have any, but still…

The Misadventures of Misaki. Same reason, Misaki is a funny little girl.

The Travelling Pear. I met parts of the pear in real life and they are wonderful people.

Raising Poppy Seed. Rudi asked me to add this blog, he’s in love with Poppy.

Fostrickson don’t worry. I got never time to accept awards myself. Just watch upon it as a sign that I thought of you.

denobears you’re the only person I know who lives in Bulgaria, I think that’s enough to receive an award. 😉

L’Historien Errant. I’m not completely vain, there is sometimes still a bit of brain in me, and it likes adventures in art, history and literature.

So that’s it for 2012. I know some of the other blogs I follow don’t like awards at all. And I can understand that. I didn’t name the pure German blogs I follow, though some certainly deserve an award. They are written in German, the award is English. Sorry folks. Entschuldigung, aber das käme mir seltsam vor.

  3. Congratulations to you (and lots of Poppy kisses to dear Rudi) It is fun to get these. Thank you for awarding us 😀 I really do appreciate it. I’m going to try to do the requirements, but am swamped, so it may take me a little bit longer. You are wonderful to share it. Thanks!!! Poppy is quite the canine Marilyn Monroe! She’s waving her tail and barking joyfully for Rudi’s benefit.

  9. I know I’m late to the party, but for a number of reasons I have been sort of absent from the blogosphere for the past couple of months, so unfortunately I never got round to thank you for including me among your Blogs of the Year… As you rightly guessed, I’m not really into stars and awards but it is nice to receive one anyway 🙂 So, many, many belated thanks for your kind appreciation and, of course, merry Christmas!
