I am 6 days away from celebrating my 2nd Blogiversary. Amazing to me are the number of visitors and followers who cross through the cyber threshold of “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercups Tea” … individuals from all walks of life and from all over the world. I still wonder — How do they find this niche? Whatever path brought you here, I thank you for the support, encouragement, acceptance, honesty and honor bestowed.
I am honored to be recognized by Izzy of Inside the Mind of Isadora for this award.
This award originated with the Thought Palette.
I have numerous favorite blogs – too many to list. 😀
It seems unfair to only list a few. 😦
I am uplifted and inspired by reading these blogs frequently
(listed in alphabetical order):
Cauldrons and Cupcakes
Confessions Of A Laundry Goddess
Curiosity to the Max
Jules Gemstone Pages
Renee Just Turtle Flight
Siggi of Maine
Source of Inspiration
The Task at Hand
Returning the honor to:
Isadora of Inside the Mind of Isadora
As with most awards there are a few rules BUT unlike most awards you are encouraged to give to other bloggers even if they already have the award posted.
- Do you know a blog that deserves an award?
- Do you have special blogs that you love to read?
- Which blogs do you bookmark and follow?
The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:
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 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
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!
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 6 stars!

Thank you so much for the mention on your blog and congratulations on your 2 year anniversary! I haven’t been blogging very long but I am so happy to have found so many lovely friends all over the world! I’m so glad you realized that stats aren’t important – your on-line journal is for your enjoyment first. I have enjoyed your warm and thoughtful posts so —on to year 3!
Thank you, WabiSabi!! You are off to a tremendous start!!
Thanks Becca for mentioning me and giving me another star! I really appreciate it. This week I was almost ready to pack up my blog as I just wasn’t getting many visitors , then you gave me this award and I had a record day! So I am really grateful for the lift you gave me when I was feeling a bit low x You are my angel x
OHHHHH, don’t close the doors … 😀
I have those days as well, and I wonder if it makes any difference … and then I realize … I am not doing this for anyone but me … sure it is nice to have visitors, but I must remember my REAL reason for starting … if someone benefits in the process then it is just an added plus. You are a joy to read. THANK YOU!!! 😀
Congratulations on your 2nd blogaversary and the well-deserved award. Here’s to another year of your poetry, insight, and creativiness.
Becca thank you so very much for this wonderful award I truly must get to grips with the awards I have been given this year which I have put on the back burner… So Many thanks again…. And your own blog Becca not only inspires but it brings warmth and love.. I truly love to visit and read your inspired poetry verses in the Haiku style..
Blessings Sue xox
Awwww, Sue, you are a blessing and a joy! Thank you for all of your generous sharing with us. xoxo
I returned your kindness and nominated you as well!
Thank you!! You are most kind … and congratulations to you!!
Congrats! Your blog is one that I always seek out first every week. It is always thought-provoking and real. The best posts are the ones that have you thinking long after you are done reading them.
Also, thanks for the Blog of the Year nom….appreciated beyond words by this fellow blogger and friend!
Well deserved!! 😀
I created Gem Stone Pages to link to The River for daily observations – While I started those observations on January 1, 2011 – I think I started the Gem Stones blog in April of 2011. So in about 40 posts I’ll hit my two year mark. I’m still not great with copying images, so I think I’ll have to create a Page just for awards. Because I don’t really know what else to do. I think I did do two other awards, before…and I have one in storage…so to speak. I am humbled and flattered to be recognized by my peers. And I will try to honor this post…eventually.
Thank you for your support, encouragement and friendship.
Jules — I have created an awards page … for me, it is nice to have them all in one spot! No rush!!
Congratulations on your blogaversary, and thanks for recognizing my blog. I love visiting here and reading your work and seeing your art.
Thank you, Susie. You deserve the recognition.
My goodness! Congratulations on your blogaversary, and thanks so much for the mention! I’m going to try and make a point of visiting the others you’ve noted, too. To paraphrase the old saying, so many blogs, so little time!
You’re certainly given a great deal of pleasure to many people with your blog. I’m looking forward to following you in the year(s) to come!
Ahhh, thank you … very gracious of you! (blush, blush)
