Blog of the Year 2012~5 Stars

boty-5star-thumb1

I want to say ‘thank-you’ to Ivon at  http://ivonprefontaine.com for nominating my blog  for Blog of the Year Award. Thank-you so much. I am honored! I now have ‘five stars’ and am thrilled.

I have met so many wonderful bloggers in the past year. Happy New Year and I wish all good things to come your way.

And here are the rules:

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 the award’s 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 if you choose to

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 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!

I have not put the nominees in any type of order and please understand there are so many awesome blogs that deserve this award. I worry I have forgotten someone.

I want to thank all my followers, readers and anyone that just takes a peek at my blog. I do apologize if I ever forget to thank anyone as it is not intentional. I appreciate you all. Thank you so much.

Here are the nominees  I have chosen for the ‘Blog of the Year 2012:

If you do not accept Awards I do understand, just know you are appreciated and thinking about you too.

The Addictive Blog Award

 

Addictive Blog Award was given to me by Kate at:

www.believeanyway.wordpress.com     Kate is a wonderful, friendly, heart-warming Lady. Thank you very much. I’m honored and appreciative. Please drop in and say Hello to Kate.

I had never even heard of the award either Kate.  I’m honored and thank-you so much.

The rules for this Award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link them back.
Thank you my friend!

2. Share a little bit about why you started blogging.

I started blogging with the thought I would remain private and store my different ideas and health tips. My Hubby encouraged me to share my ‘fitness inspiration’- as being a ‘Baby Boomer” and so dedicated why not try and encourage others. My blog is growing and I hope to do more with it as I learn more. It has become my hobby. I hope to inspire others to stay as healthy as possible and to continue to stay active throughout your life, no matter how old you are.

3. Copy and Paste the award onto your own blog.

4. Nominate up to 10 other bloggers you think are addictive enough to deserve the award.

It is difficult to choose with all the terrific blogs in our world as I like to think we are all unique in our own way. 

Please know that I totally understand if you are not interested in Awards. I only want you to know your blog is awesome.

The nominees for this Award are not in any alphabetical order.

Liebster Blog Award

My Blog has become one of my passions. A fun-filled hobby for me!  I have met new friends and continue to meet more and more people.

Here are the steps that go with the recognition:

  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  2. Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
  3. Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
  4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed.

 So many fabulous blogs to choose from, these are a few that I like to visit! They are unique in their own way. I do apologize if you do not want to accept Awards.  It was tricky for me in trying to figure out which blogs I visit that have 200 followers or less.
