I am honored to report that I have been nominated for the “Blog of the Year 2012″ Award by http://camsgranny.wordpress.com . She has an interesting blog that is worth your while to visit; her life experiences are inspirational.

I have to confess that though I appreciate the thought and the award itself, I am the type to shy away from them. I also feel shy awarding them out to others because I feel that since there are rules associated to these awards, I dislike the feeling of imposition that comes with the award. I also feel bad that I don’t follow that many, so I apologize in advance to anyone who may feel slighted. I have another confession to make, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to provide the link to the blogs of my dear friends. I am frustrated and I apologize for any inconvenience to those who would like to pop on by to visit them. The heart is in the right place though the technological abilities are severely lacking.

I therefore nominate http://Thelaughinghousewife.wordpress.com She puts a smile on my face everyday and has been my mentor though she didn’t realize it for a time.

http://weescoops.wordpress.com I started my journey with her and her gift of words is amazing

http://getreadingnow.org My friend Jackie Paulson has a tremendous blog devoted to book reviews and she has the gift.

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!
