Blog of the Year 2012 — an Award

I am honored to have received the Blog of the Year 2012 award from my reader, and a great blogger in her own right, Kate Kresse at Believe AnywayKate is the person I’d like to be, when I grow up, primarily because she is an unbounded optimist, even when life stinks.  Kate says that awards are hugs between bloggers, either giving or receiving.  I like that.  Kate has received her second star on the BOTY2012 award — she certainly deserves them both!  Thank you so much, Kate.

And here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award.

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.

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!)

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

You can now also join the award’s 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 if you choose to

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…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

For every time you are given this award, you may add a star to the award badge, up to 6 stars.

Now, my choice:

I hope all of my readers know that if they are bloggers as well, I already think they are wonderful.  I don’t care about the subject of the blog, or the polish with which it is presented.  I am proud to belong to this group. If I were to award this to more than one person, I’d have to name every single one of you.  I love the insights you each bring from your particular corner of the world.

Having said that, though, I now name the one blogger who has been entertaining me — usually with posts so funny I fall over laughing — a fellow who is another of the Renaissance-type people we find on here sometimes.  He is a novelist, a blogger, a songwriter and singer/guitar player, and if he isn’t — I mean if you aren’t doing standup, you should be.  His blog is:

Pouring my Art Out – http://pouringmyartout.wordpress.com/

The link is for a recent post that, while marginally horrifying, was also so funny I was late to a meeting because I couldn’t stop laughing!  Congratulations, and don’t ever stop!
