Long Overdue Award Post

I do appreciate the blog love. I do. I really really do. From Millan.Net

I apologize for my lateness. I have such good intentions, but time just gets away from me. I admire those of you who do such beautiful award posts. (I tend to get confused and flustered.)

But let’s not confuse my procrastination with lack of interest in award honor. I do appreciate each and every nomination. I’m just a very poor multi-tasker!!

So, apologies aside, let’s get started!!

Blog of the Year Award 2012

From the creators of the award:

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!

Now back to me. 🙂

First of all, I’d like to thank Jamie at Grandmother’s Musings, Nicole at NMNPHX, and Marsha at tchistorygal for all nominating me for this award.

All three blogs are ones that I visit regularly. Please pay them all a visit, you’ll be so glad you did. All three are marvelous women, and I am proud to call them my blogging-friends.

Here are a few blogs that I think deserve this great award:

Daniela at the Lantern Post. Daniela is an awesome writer, with a wealth of ‘life experience’ to share. She blogs in English, although this is not her native language. (wow, right?!) Her posts are always interesting and thoughtful.

Carolyn at ABC of Spirit Talk. Carolyn is a lot of fun, and a source of all kinds of wisdom.

Marsha at Who’s Your Granny. Poor Marcia has just had a horrible tree disaster on her property. Please visit her and cheer her up! 🙂

Yvonne at Misifusa’s Blog. She is a spunky, inspiring survivor who always spreads joy with everything she writes. She also has an active online greeting card business which you can learn about through her blog.

Pat at A New Day. Pat has been adjusting to some life changes and she is quite a lady. She is a traveler, a photographer and a person who inspires with every blog post.

And now …. in an embarrassment of riches, I must admit that I have several other awards that I want to acknowledge and pass along. However, I will make them a separate blog post as they deserve full attention. (hopefully before 2013, but …. considering my lack of multi-tasking skills, and the holidays upon us….let’s not hold our collective breath!)

  1. Thanks for the kinds words as well. You are the bomb.com as my young friends say. And now, I’m off to check out this other Marsha in your life, as well as some of your other blog friends. I’ll be back, though! 🙂

  2. Daniela says:

    Big, HUGE (tree hug -:)) congratulations! You deserve all the awards and then some! You blog with heart and humanity … two most important ‘things’ in the world!

    Thank you so, so much for nominating me … I am truly humbled by what you said about me and my blog … thank you.


I'd love to hear what you think!
