Blogging Awards in the New Year

I’m really happy with the way my stats have progressed last month in terms of views and visitors. I think it is mainly because I have been posting regularly and taking part in various blogging events.

statsI would also like to think that I have improved in quality and although there is no obvious measure for that I did receive some very flattering comments on some of my posts.

In this context I received two awards last month which I accepted (there were others which I had to decline since I already had received them before) for which I am very grateful.

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!)

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.

My nominees are:

JannaTWrites

TJ Barker

Linda Vernon Humor

Writing To Be Noticed

Pen Kisses Paper

Congratulations to all the nominees and thank you for your inspiring writing. I hope you’ll accept the award I nominated you for.
