It took me a long time to write this one because I kept getting distracted. As I was hopping from site to site to grab everyone’s url I would get distracted by their posts or by new blogs I’ve come across.
We’ve become friends with Roxy and Tigerlino at Purrfect Kitties. They are two beautiful German kitties who have hilarious musings. They have bestowed upon us not one, not two but THREE awards. Then Yelloz at FourCatPaw nominated us for two more! It’s about time I properly thank them.
The instructions for this award are simple:
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 ‘swap’ 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.
I’ve chosen two blogs for this award. I chose them because of our similarities and their love of animals. I look forward to reading about their days, sharing stories with them and looking at pictures of their pets.
Valerie and I share many things in common including our similar looking (and absolutely adorable) dogs.
She always has great crafting ideas and I love her holiday decor! I chose her because she has been one of my longest followers and has become a good friend 🙂
Two Cats and a Cattledog
Meghan aka FireBonnet has two blogs, the one above where she is the scribe for her 2 cats and cattle dog and FireBonnet where she focuses on her love of photography, art and other wonderful things!
We’ll be moving on to the Sunshine Award now.
Now for some random facts, I only like eating off soup spoons, not the regular dinner spoons. I love playing LEGO video games. I’m a recycling freak; everything is recycled in our house. I have a scrapbook hobby. I like to read the Get Fuzzy comic strip.
I would love to share this award with the following. These blogs always make my day a little brighter with their pictures and stories.
Thank you Roxy and Tigerlino for thinking of us for this award! I love that we bring a little sunshine to your world and hopefully do the same for you!
Yelloz is a beautiful red tabby who I met through Purrfect Kitties (he’s Roxy’s boyfriend 😉 ) who says “let’s always remember to smile and love.” I was nominated for the Inner Peace award and the I’m A Part of the WordPress Family Award. You can read their award post here.
“INNER PEACE AWARD” has a very simple rule to follow which is to write a short piece about the reason of accepting the award.
Yelloz gives this award at the perfect time. There have been life things that are bizarre and don’t make sense (nothing directly affecting me) and I’ve been praying for peace & understanding, especially for the people involved. So I accept this award and take it as a good sign. 🙂
I pass this on to anyone who might be in the same place.
I Am a Part of the WordPress Family Award
The rules are :
1 Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2 Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
3 Nominate up to 15 bloggers for I’m a part of the WordPress Family Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.
4 Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.
Thank you Yelloz! I’m so glad that we’re blog friends and love to read about your musings!
I’d like to nominate these 3 blogs.
Again a huge thank you to Purrfect Kitties and FourCatPaw for the nominations!
