  1. Thank you Kitty. This is my first nomination for any award. It means a lot to me.
    I am overwhelmed.
    I will try following the the procedure you have outlined above.
    And congratulations to you too.
    I also wanted to ask, Should I put the award logo right away or am I supposed to wait for some kind of evaluation and further results to be declared.?

    • Hi Pamela, thanks for your kind words!

      You deserve, and probably will get, more awards 🙂

      You don’t have to hurry with a blog post on this, as the award is for helping bloggers, not for hurrying them 🙂

      You don’t have to wait for any evaluation. As soon as you accept the nomination and write a blog post about it, you can put the award logo in that post. Also on your sidebar, as some bloggers do 🙂

  2. Sincères félicitations
