Here I express my gratitude to Orbs Delight for this nomination for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award. It was certainly unexpected, but gratefully received. I encourage you to visit Orbs Delight http://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/ for wonderful photos and interpretations of orbs and their emanations.
As the next step in this awards process I am allowed and delighted to nominate fellow bloggers for the honor. Here are the nominees, in no particular order:
seedbud, http://leafandtwig.wordpress.com/ for lovely poetry that matches very evocative photographs
Orbs Delight, http://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/, welcoming all and sundry into her very remarkable world of orbs
Mary Strong-Spaid, http://storieswithnobooks.com/, for her eclectic photographs and penetrating commentary
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 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!
