‘Blog of the Year’ Award

14 Dec

I am learning quickly that this blog community kinda rocks!  Seriously.  It’s this whole group of supportive people just waiting to lift up and encourage their fellow bloggers.  I kinda love it!

This week I was honored to receive 2 awards!  That’s right.  2!!  They are both the ‘Blog of the Year’ award, which just sounds AWESOME, doesn’t it?  (And it gets better so make sure you read below!) The first came from Jhuls at thenotsocreativecook – not only do I read this blog often, but I also follow her on Instagram.  And you should too!  The second one came from Haley at If You Give a Blonde A Kitchena fairly new (and wonderful) blog that I am really excited about!  A big thank you to both of them.  (And now I can display my ‘2 stars’.  Woo hoo!!)

Now, the details:

  1.  Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award
  2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
  3. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them – (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)
  4. Come over and say hello to the originator of the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award via this link – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/
  5. You can now also join the ‘Blog of the Year’ Award Facebook page – click the link here  https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/ and share your blog posts with an even wider audience.
  6. And 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 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 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!

You can find all the badges, banners and information you need here: ‘Blog of the Year 2013′ Award Badges
