To commemorate the past year in blogging, The Thought Palette has created a Blog of the Year 2012 award. Thank you to Nicole of NMNPHX for nominating my blog.
The complete rules and details of this award are available at The Thought Palette, along with a series of badges with one to six stars. Add a star for each nomination you receive up to six.
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…
First, I’m going to return the nomination back to NMNPHX because that’s the most awarding blog I know. Nicole even has her own spotlight award she awards to other blogs each month, so I think she deserves another star.
I’m also nominating Our Adventure in Croatia. Most people never even think about Croatia, or possibly don’t even know it exists. In this blog, read all about the adventures of a couple who bought a vacation home there. In the process learn all about a different country. It opened my eyes to a new place to consider visiting someday.
Cindy Knoke of The Leisurely Life is a retiree living in a place she calls the Holler where she has wildlife cams. She writes about a variety of things and posts some nice photos. She also receives a nomination.
My last nomination goes to sharechair, who keeps readers informed about new things in the technological world with Everyday Technology for Everyday Folks.
