Thank you to Shawn for selecting me for this award! I don’t normally do anything with awards, but since he asked so nicely I thought I’d participate just this once!
The rules for this Award are
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
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!
I will nominate 7 blogs
Because she was one of the people who inspired me to dangle my toes into the blogosphere, and she’s my Auntie Marie!
Because if my dad blogged he would be Al, so he’s my honorary uncle al, my Dad’s twin, very definitely separated at birth
For being my third most frequent commenter & saying such lovely things about my photos 🙂
For having such a great name!
For taking such wonderful photos and always visiting me & liking my pictures
For having lots of lists of her 100 top everythings 🙂
For having a blog that contains nearly 1000 jokes!!! No wonder she is laughing!!
Have fun passing the award on & let me know who you nominate xxx
Thank you for thinking of me Barbara. If there are questions to go with the award, I answer them and then break the rules – I leave it open for anyone that wants to accept the award. This one has no questions, so Please, take it as accepted! 😀
I’m the same, but this one is so easy to accept… and if you get more of them you can collect stars! 🙂
Thanks for this, Barbara. After receiving three consecutive “Worst Blog of the Year” awards, it’s nice to finally have the monkey off my back. And even though it smacks of nepotism, it is humbly accepted.
Your pal, Uncle Al
I’ll try and drum up a few more for you so we can totally negate those nasty ‘Worst Blog’ nominations 😉
(You’ve got Leanne worried now… see below!)
OMG I just saw the comment above, that can’t be true, how can there be awards like that?
Congratulations Barbara, very well deserved, and thank you for nominating me. I don’t really do awards, but I have started putting links to everyone who nominates me on my awards page, so will put you there as well.
Hi Leanne, don’t worry, that’s just Al’s sense of humour, and his attempt to generate some sympathy visits to his blog… Al loves monitoring his blog statistics! He is also the President of the NBFP club!
I’m the same as you, but this one doesn’t really ask you to do much so I thought I’d say thanks to you for all your visits to my blog & for liking so many of my posts 🙂
I am glad about that, I would hate to think there really was an award for that, though some of the people i have met during my time here makes me think some would do it. Thankfully those people are few and far in-between.
That’s horrible! Thankfully I haven’t met anyone nasty like that yet, and if I do I plan to completely ignore them!
That is the best thing, I have only ever blacklisted one person. Which is part of the reason why I moderate all my comments.
Don’t listen to Barbara, Leanne. These are very real awards and you can see the evidence of that at these sites.
And thank you for your concern….it’s obvious that you are not as cold-hearted as Barbara, although I still like her some.
lol… a comment with 3 links in it! Nearly got sent to Spam!!
Not sure if you’re crying or calling me names…….
I’m not sure if you can see the little emoticons above… they’re lots of ‘smileys’, crying 😦
Although I see the one in this recent comment, the ones before that just appear as little squares. That tends to happen sometimes with your comments. Maybe you are subconsciously trying to tell me I’m not “hip.”
I love your reasons for nominating blogs! Thanks for thinking of me 🙂
You’re welcome & deserving 🙂 xxx
Congratulations, Barbara! I love your photos … and Wilson. Thanks for the nomination.
