Seeing stars!

Blog of the Year Award 3 star jpeg

Today I’m very happy and super chuffed to have recieved my third star in the blog of the year award!

Thank you for my stars!

Thank you for my stars!

My second star came from the beautiful and inspiring Zoey from The life and times of Zoey and the third star arrived this morning from a new friend the Journey Man from The Broken Road. Thank you so very much to both of you, it really means alot that you thought of me. =^.^=

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

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 – 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 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

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!

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 favourite 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 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

The great thing about this award is that I get to pass it on to my favourite blogs! The blogs I’d like to nominate for the award are, in no particular order:

One spoiled cat Sammy is my virtual best friend and gave me the first star for this wonderful award. He is teaching me that actually it’s nice to give my humans a furry cuddle once in a while. His blog is super and he has lots of teasers and competitions.

The life and times of Zoey Zoey is the most beautiful little cat. She’s a paraplegic cat and her story and journey are truly inspirational! Recently her human has been writing about all the animals that have touched her life and it’s really lovely reading.

Hands on Bowie Herman and Mr Bowie are awesome! Bowie is a British short-hair and really very handsome! They always keep me entertained.

These days of mine This is a beautiful blog usually written by Dianna with stunning photos. But I look forward to days when my Furriend Sundae lends a helping paw and puts in her whiskers worth!

Cats & Co Even though I’m a cat I learn soo much from this super informative blog!

The broken road The Journey Man is a wonderful soul writting about his journey to rebuild his life. He writes with passion and I am very happy to be his friend.

Our journey to the sea These guys are super cool and have a very similar plan to my humans and I, to take off cruising ASAP! They have lots of fun doing watersports and I love all of their photos.

Sarah Potter has a lovely blog and she has inspired me to pull out my paw and start work on my book in January!

Angels whisper is an adorably sweet blog which follows the lives of Binky a cute kitty and Granny. They make me smile.

The other side of ugly is written by a pretty human called Sheri. She had a near death experience which has inspired her to make the most of life and share her insights into our world.

Angies Grapevine Angie has the coolest ‘kids’ (2 dogs, 2 cats, a degu a rat and 10 fish) and I love all of her stories and photos with lots of variety.

Little Miss Wordy is a yummy mummy who leaves me wanting to read more and more of her posts which are beautifully written from the heart.

I hope you can connect with these lovely blogs and see just why I love being part of their community. Have a lovely evening.

Bisous Bailey
