No, we haven’t won it. (Highly unlikely, considering how new this blog is! )
I would like to nominate Patsy Collins’ blog, Patsy Collins Words about writing and writing about words, for the Blog of the Year 2012. The ‘unique selling point’ of the blog is ’free to enter’ writing competitions, which Patsy puts in a lot of effort to find every week and shares with everyone who reads her blog. Patsy also uses her blog to tell us what she is writing at the moment, about her novels and the stories she has had accepted, but it’s not all about Patsy. For instance, her post for 7 December listed other writers’ competition wins and other writers’ books in progress.
I’m now supposed to list the rules of the comp… in case someone else reading this wants to nominate, so here we are:
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 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!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5 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
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!
