My dearest friend, Jessica has again, with dire warnings about undue modesty, nominated me for an award, the time the “Blog of the year 2012 Award”. As always, the meaning of the award is in who bestowed it on you, and in this case I am deeply honored. I’m quite sure that surprises no one, since as you all know I am a huge fan of Jessica’s work both at All around the Watchtower, her blog, and recently here as well as my co-author. As always this award comes with rules, which are:
1.)You have to select another blog or blogs to receive the‘Blog of the Year, 2012’. This is a very hard one since there are so many wonderful offerings in the blogosphere, small and large. So I have accordingly decided to make it a bit local this time.
2.) Then I have to tell you why, this part is easy, these are two outstanding blogs for your delectation.
My first nominee is a small blog (not for long, I predict) called Small Town Nebraska which does a superb job of presenting what life is like out here with us. I thoroughly enjoy every post Julie makes. You should as well.
And my second is still another Nebraskan, Nebraskattitude. Shelly does some of the sharpest video satire I have ever seen. I’m not so much a video guy, which may be the understatement of the week, but I dearly love hers.
3.) One should also give an acknowledgement back to http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/, which is the page for the ‘Blog of the Year Award’
4.) Notify the recipients, which I shall as soon as I post this.
5.) There is a Facebook group for honorees, I shall probably not join as I use Facebook very little but it is there.
6.) As a winner of the award, link back to the blog that presented it to you, which is here. And then proudly display the award on your sidebar, and collect 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.
Thanks so much, Jess for the award, and especially for your friendship and support.
