Blog of the Year 2012 award, thanks dogdaz!

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

Oh dogdaz, you are so kind, to grace Dear Kitty. Some blog with the “Blog of the Year 2012″  Award. We really appreciate you thinking of us. If you have not met dogdaz yet, then please check out the blog here.

The “Blog of the Year” award is a little different from some other awards, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the ‘rules’ for this award:

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 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them.

4 You can now also join our Facebook group [I cannot join that group as I am not on Facebook].

5 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, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!


I want to give this award to so many blog friends that I don’t know where to start. Even though this time I have nominated many more blogs than on earlier occasions, I will very probably forget many deserving blogs. Please keep passing it on and keep the star shine going for blog years and years to come.

  9. My dear friend – congratulations on a well deserved award and congratulations to all those remarkable bloggers who received your nomination. I am honoured to be a participant in this esteemed group. To me, this award is a celebration of friendship. Albert Camus says it much better than I do… “Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”


    • Definitely, Clanmother. Thank you for your kind and eloquent words! When I had to move to WordPress almost a year ago, I hardly knew any WordPress bloggers. I think the WordPress system of “likes” (which did not exist at Blogsome where I used to be) helps to get to know many interesting and kind people.

    • Thanks for your kind words and hugs, Maarit-Johanna:) You really deserve the award for your varied and well-illustrated blogs. My best wishes for you, your blogs, Finland and ancient Greece 🙂


  11. Congratulations my sister Kitty on a well-deserved award. I appreciate and draw inspiration from what you highlight and the caring spirit which I think is the source of your blog. Thanks for spending so much time to make us more aware of matters often neglected in the mainstream media.
    Many many thanks for the nomination!!!!
    In the Jamaican language, nuff love and respek mi sista.
    One love
