Blog of the Year Award 2012

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg I was over the moon to hear from Catherine at http://caiteile.com/   that she has included me in her nominations  for the “Blog of the Year 2012 Award” - http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/

Recognition is a great motivator, so a big Thank You to everyone for finding and reading my blog.
This has been a good blogging year for me, largely because  of two prompts which I discovered  - A-Z Challenge and Sepia Saturday -  both  very stimulating   to follow and great fun to compose.  It has been amazing to read how fellow contributors have  interpreted each letter or each photo prompt so differently. 

Now I have a new tricky challenge of nominating  others for this award from the many blogs on my reading list.   Here they are: 

Do click on these links and enjoy their thoughtful, thought-provoking, and at times moving and humourous posts.   Plus they have widened my knowledge and understanding of other parts of the world.

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. If you choose, you can now 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 for every time you are nominated. For further information on collecting stars, just click on the link provided in Rule 3.

Happy blogging in 2013!

  4. Congratulations, Sue. What a great honor for you!

  5. A well deserved recognition of your very engaging blog Susan! Thank you so much for nominating my blog for the award -it is such a privilege that people make time to read it and make comments, let alone receive an award.

  6. Thank you to everyone for their kind comments. I appreciate them very much,

  7. You can collect another star, you deserve it! I nominated you for blog of the year award!

  8. Thankyou SO much Susan for your nomination. Can't begin to tell you how delighted I am. Sorry for being so slow to respond but it's all been go go go :-)... Have almost completed my nominee's list and will send you the link very soon. I've decided to no longer include the link back to the originator of the Award because it's serves no useful purpose and is not a requirement for a huge number of other Awards.
    Congratulations on another Star. It's so very well deserved and I love that people pass them on with an open heart...Enjoy!!! Cheerio for now, Catherine
