Blog of the Year 2012 award, thanks Russell!

Blog of the Year Award 6 star jpeg

Oh Russell, you are so kind, to grace Dear Kitty. Some blog with the “Blog of the Year 2012″  Award.

It is the sixth time, the sixth star, for this award for this blog. The maximum number of stars for the “Blog of the Year 2012″  Award.

We really appreciate Russell thinking of us. If you have not met Russell yet, then please check out his truly interesting blog, here. Its header says: YESCuba: Jamaicans in Solidarity with Cuba. Globalize Solidarity: Another World is Possible.

After Russell, some other bloggers have been so kind to nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for this award. Don’t worry, later posts on this blog will mention you 🙂

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 – 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 [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. 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.

  4. Dear Kitty:

    Thank you! I am having so much fun blogging (never thought it would take since scrap booking is abhorrent to me;) ). I’m inspired by your six stars! Shine on, Blog Buddy! Shine on!

  6. I am celebrating with you! Your generosity and compassion for the world shines brightly in the world that perilously divided and deeply complex. I was especially thinking of your today and the quote that came to mind was from Aristotle: “Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” You have made quality a habit. Congratulations!!

  7. Thank you Kitty for considering me worthy of the most awesome award. You most certainly deserved it, what with your most altruistic style of writing!! Congratulations 😉
