I want to thank awesome author, Mae Clair for nominating my blog for 2012 Blog of the Year! But before I tell you about the nomination, I want to tell you about my fellow author. First of all, Mae is a great lady, a talented writer, and a friend! Many of you may already know Mae and hopefully have read her fantastic paranormal book, Weathering Rock. So check out Mae and her book and her BLOG. Mae always has great authors, interesting topics on her blog, and simply put: she's fun and entertaining!
Now, allow me to accept her kind nomination for 2012 Blog of the Year and tell you folks just how it works.....
So how does it work? The rules are pretty straightforward:
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 page – click the link here ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook page- https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/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 receive the ‘1 star’ award. 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 favorite 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!
NOW ONTO MY NOMINATIONS:
