My sincere thanks to Tom of the Palladian Traveler blog for nominating me for the 2012 Blog of the Year Award; it’s quite an honor to receive it. As with (virtually) all blog awards, there are some rules, but those attached to this particular award aren’t particularly onerous. (See below.)
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…
Let’s cut to the chase. I’m going to limit myself to two blog nominations for this award, one of which appears to have received it multiple times already (but the rules stipulate up to six stars, so I think we remain on solid ground).
Lynn of the Composer in the Garden blog always has interesting, insightful and well-written entries that usually (but not always) touch upon music and/or gardening in some form or fashion. Honesty compels me to report that I am an insider on neither of these topics, but it’s a testament to Lynn’s acumen in both fields–and her ability to transmit that skill and knowledge through her writing–that I never miss an entry. Be sure to check it out.
Emily, of Bella Remy Photography and the Hoof Beats and Foot Prints blog posts always-interesting, eclectic material that typically revolves around (unsurprisingly) photography, horses and/or hiking. Take a moment and have a look; you’ll likely find that you’ll be returning on a regular basis.
Again, my thanks to Tom of the Palladian Traveler blog for the 2012 Blog of the Year nomination.
