I would like to thank wonderful Dawny Hosking for nominating me for this award.
Please do go over and check out her entertaining and informative blog.
This is what the Blog of the Year 2013 – Two star Award looks like.
The idea as always when you receive one of these lovely awards is to choose some other blogs to nominate for the same award.
Well here are my nominees: there is really just such a plethora of blogs to choose from, it was indeed very difficult for me to choose again.
Once again I should also let you know that I do still have several other awards to give out over the next week or so as well ….so please do keep dropping by. If I haven’t nominated you for this I’m still very likely to be nominating many of you for another different award.
Well here are my new nominees for round 2 of “Blog of the Year 2013:
The instructions for this award are simple:
1-Select the blogs 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
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 this 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 of 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 6 times!
You can find all the badges and banners and information you need via this link: ‘Blog of The Year 2013′ Award Badges.
Congratulations to all the nominees! Best of luck to every one!
And of course a very big thank you once again to lovely Dawn for nominating my blog a second time for this Award. Hugs to everyone.
You are too kind, thank you for thinking of me! I’m not sure I want to go through the whole awards thing so if you wanted to choose someone else, that would be fine by me 🙂 Well done on your own achievements so far, your blog looks very professional, the quality of your photos is absolutely top notch, I love them!
I’ll be sure to check out the other blogs listed too 🙂
Thank you for your kind words re my posts and photos. I wouldn’t dream of giving your award to anyone else. You are most deserving even if you don’t decide to write an acceptance post. I should tell you it is lots of fun though just spreading the love. I really enjoy your blog and am so pleased I found it.
Thank you 🙂 xo
Thanks so much Chess.

Oh that is so kind of you….thank you so much….I really appreciate it.
