Okay seriously, how cool is it to be nominated for this one? Vikki from The View Outside has nominated me and I am honored. You can check her out here: http://the-view-outside.com/
Now, admittedly, I am not great about blog awards. So many of them feel like they are being passed around somewhat casually. You get one, and you have to come up with a bunch of other people to give it to so you come up with the first five to ten names you can think of and you’re done. This one is not all that different. It’s a bit of a popularity contest. If I’m understanding it right, I need to collect stars by having other people nominate me as well.
Honestly, I don’t care about that. It’s enough that Vikki thought I deserved this. So if I have to nominate someone, I’ll nominate her right back. I’d also nominate Claire at Crazy California Claire http://clairehennessy.blogspot.com/ And Ilana at Mommyshorts http://www.mommyshorts.com/2012/12/the-first-year-all-over-again.html and Paula Acton because she has a heart of gold. http://paulaacton.wordpress.com/
So here are the rules should you decide to follow them. If you don’t, I so get it.
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 the Facebook group — click ‘like’ on the page above ‘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…
