Ok, I know we have 2013 already, but Toni over at The Girl in the Yoga Pants has kindly nominated me for the blog of the year award. That came pretty much out of the blue, and I want to thank her again for that honour. I wanted to pass on that award to my favourite blogs. Initially I thought I’d say something about every blog, but I’ve had a hell of a week which resulted in me having the laziestest (yes, I just invented that word) weekend ever. I basically just went grocery shopping yesterday, did a minimum amount of cleaning and watched a full season of True Blood. So now it’s late and I still have laundry to hang up for drying. So I’ll just make a list. Here it comes:
- (the never ending) Adventures in Fitness (& life)
- Army Amy*
- Bella on the beach
- Instant Student
- meals & moves
- The Girl in Yoga Pants
- The Hungry Runner Girl
- The Sassy Pear
- Weight Wars
I want to encourage everyone to award the blog(s) you love and read regularly. As always, there are rules (I’m going to bed now, don’t expect me to write anything else after the rules. Good night!):
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!
‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Badges
Here are the six badges for you to collect – 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!
