Since initially being awarded this award on 22.11.12 by the fabulous Dogdaz, I have subsequently been awarded, ‘The Blog of the Year’, a further four times by four very talented people with very good taste,*cheeky grin* !!

All of the above ladies are extremely talented. They are all trailblazers in what they do – in my humble opinion they are all worth following as they have extraordinary and interesting blogs! Thank you ladies for your nominations and feeling me worthy of a nomination 🙂


The blog of the year award is slightly different as you can collect stars each time you receive the award. There are six stars to collect.

Here are the ‘rules’

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 – 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!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.


Oh my word – where do I start…

Some of these guys and gals may not choose to accept awards, but I hope by giving them recognition for the part they have played in inspiring me – you too will come to enjoy their talents, as I have.

For a start I would like to pass it back to the person who kicked it all off for me,


and also to…
