Second Star

Blog of the Year Award banner 600

Not long after I received my first star in the Blog of the Year 2012 nominations, star No.2 came along, in the form of a ‘re-nomination‘ (I think I just made that up) from MADD Suspicions.

Of course, I accept this (thank you, MADD) and I hope to gain another four in the future.

I assume I’m also required to nominate several bloggers who I haven’t already presented this award to. I won’t re-post the rules or anything as you can find them in my first post (first link in this post, also). It has reminded me that I still haven’t ‘Liked‘ their Facebook page, even though I’m now active on there myself. Before we get down to that, I’d like to share my favourite Bad Company song with you, which is what first came to my mind when I read MADD’s post:

So, my new nominations after receiving my second star:

From Borderline to Better

Anxious Elephant

Enjoy Life for Once!

Thank you all for reading and following. 🙂

‘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.

The Brilliant Blog Award

It was only two-weeks ago that I got around to writing my acceptance post for my previous blog award and, since then, I’ve been nominated for my third award, thanks to the Gee we all know and love as Wee! 😀 (…Not that kind of wee!!)

One Lovely Blog Award!

I’m aware of these awards and nominations from where I’ve blogged before and I was delighted to receive my first nomination earlier today, from anxious elephant, following her own thoroughly-deserved nomination yesterday.
