Shaun of the blog Looking for reasoning to a complicated world has been so kind to nominate Dear Kitty. Some Blog for the Blog of the Year 2013 Award.
Thank you so much for this kind gesture!
And I thank Shaun for the WordPress Family Award as well!
And also a Thank you! to Alex of the blog Photography | Nature, for nominating my blog for the Blog of the Year 2013 Award!
This is my tenth nomination for this blog award. The maximum number of stars for this award is six. So, I can’t add an tenth star; still, many thanks for nominations #9 and #10, to Shaun and Alex!
The instructions for the Blog of the Year 2013 Award are:
1-Select the blog(s) you think deserve the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award.
2-Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen- there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required- and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
3-Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them- (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)
4-Come over and say hello to the originator of the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award via this link: http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2-/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/
5-You can now also join the Blog Of The Year Award Facebook Page.Click the link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear
Share your blog posts with an even wider audience.
6-And as a winner of the award- please add a link back to the blog that presented you with this award-and then proudly display the award on your blog- 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 favorite blogs- and even if they have already been given the award by someone else- you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum of 6 stars! You can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award- or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award 6 times!
You can find all the badges and banners and information you need via this link: ‘Blog of The Year 2013′ Award Badges.
Congratulations to all the nominees! Best of luck to every one!
Here is what Shaun, the creator of the WordPress Family Award, had to say about it:
“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family”. I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”.
I do feel that WordPress has given me a new online “Family” and I am proud to nominate the following members of my family for this award.
My nominees are (of course, all nominees like always are free to accept or decline the nomination. In this case, they may also accept one award, the other award, or both awards):
