Last year this proved to be such a popular little award – so even though this blog is now primarily here for me to share my creative journey as an artist with you – I just had to bring this little award back to life again this year!
There have been so many blogs that I have enjoyed reading and following this year, so it has been a hard task to narrow the field down – but I have selected a number of blogs that have really stood out for me this year – and I am very happy to present them with their first Blog of the Year Award – complete with one shiny star:
The instructions for this award are simple:
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 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! You can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award – or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award six times!
So here are the blogs that I have chosen:
Julie Dawn Fox – inspiration and tips for living in Portugal
Restless Jo - roaming at home and abroad
There have also been some amazing blogs that have joined the Blog of the Year Facebook Group – and some of them have posted on there so frequently I have been amazed at how loyal they have been. So here are some extra blogs that I would also like to present the award to:
Congratulations to everyone – and I can’t wait to see who you present the award on to!
