‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

I’ve only been running this blog since August but, to look at that another way, it will account for approximately one-third of 2012 by the time we reach New Year‘s Eve (if the world doesn’t end first…). To me, that pretty much says ‘half’ of the year! 😉

My biggest thanks go to The Depressed Moose for the nomination. As I said in the comments section on your post; you are deserving of more stars and so, if I’ve understood this one correctly, by nominating you in return, you should receive an additional star from me?

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…

My Nominations:

The Depressed Moose

How Do You Eat An Elephant?

Forcing Myself Happy

MADD Suspiscions

Crazy in the Coconut


I’ve selected six of the blogs (six stars so, it seemed apt) and writers that I first connected with once I started this blog of my own. There are many other pages I’ve discovered since who have also helped to encourage and inspire me but, from my own perspective, the half-dozen above have been here since the very beginning. I would like to have added Maxi’s blog to the list but, respectfully, she made the decision recently to discontinue her blog.

A big thank you to Mr.Moose for the nomination and also to everyone for reading this blog within the last eleven months, or even much less! 😉 If I ever get this blog on to Facebook, I’ll be sure to like their page. This time, I promise to notify my nominations!! 😳 At the end of this year, I aim to do a post on what I’ve learnt and have been grateful and thankful for in 2012.

  6. Well, you didn’t tell me this!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!! Well deserved, but you know I think that already! Big hugs, Bex 🙂

    • Thank you, I hoped you might stumble upon it! 😉

      • No problem! Haha, I have! This proves I am keeping up seeing and reading posts! Happy for you 🙂
        Bex 🙂
        P.S: My facebook page is active!!!!! No link on my blog yet, figuring that out as I am not a natural computer genius, though you might be mistaken for thinking so!!!!
        I will email you it later, but it is basically searchable as it is The Savvy Senorita!!!!!!
        I haven’t forgotten, BIG hugs to you!!!!!!!!!

      • Thank you, Bex. I’m going to have to put ‘myself’ on Facebook, I think, in order to keep up with things like this. 🙂

      • Ah, peer pressure! Only joking! I would be good though, as I’d love to see you on there. I want to connect with more bloggers for interaction; so no pressure, but get your page done!!!!! Hehe!! The thing is it is extra work, you know this already! I hope I don’t struggle with it. Thank you for the ‘like’ though.
        Bex 🙂
