I am thrilled to have been nominated for this award by positiveboomer.net And here are the rules:
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 award’s 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 if you choose to
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 favorite 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!
There are so many wonderful blogs out there which I love reading. Some I dip in and out of and some I would not miss. From my desk I can travel to India, USA, Canada, Australia and all the places in between. I can see fabulous photos and read wise words. I can enjoy newsletters, magazines, unpublished stories and a wealth of poetry. I can be stunned by haiku and warmed by appreciative comments. I can even say that I have made friendships as some bloggers give and receive advice, tips and encouragement freely. I am constantly amazed by the talents, wisdom and sincerity that exists and I feel privileged to share in it through blogging. I have a long list of blogs that I would not miss and I have nominated some of them for awards before. So I am deliberately choosing some that I have only recently discovered and enjoyed as well as some of my favourites and I hope you will seek them out too.
Here are the nominees I have chosen for the ‘Blog of the Year 2012:

Thank you for the nomination–it means so much to me! I have been debating whether to accept it, and decided that I’m going to decline respectfully. I still wish to show appreciation to other bloggers, so I will likely do a post soon that highlights some of the ones I love. Of course I’ll give you a shout-out then 🙂
Congratulations !! And thank you for sharing this with me!
