Blog of the Year~2012

Hello on a snow-less early December day in the rolling green hills of Vermont.  And yes, that is right–green in December.  There has been no snow to speak of yet in the Green Mountain State.  Surely that will change soon. . . .

I want to thank The Other Side of Ugly for nominating The Eye-Dancers for the “Blog of the Year~2012” award.  If you haven’t been to Sheri’s website, please pay it a visit.  It is full of enriching and insightful posts that make you stop and think and appreciate.  It is especially nice being nominated for this award from such a great blogger.  Thanks, Sheri!

It’s very surprising being nominated at all, in part because I am brand-new to blogging.  I began The Eye-Dancers site a few months ago as a platform to talk about my novel, The Eye-Dancers.  Since then, thanks to the wonderful interaction with fellow bloggers, the site has gradually grown to include more diverse topics.

Thanks to everyone who has read these ramblings of mine.  I like to think this is just the beginning.  There’s a lot still to talk about!

The ‘rules’ for the 2012 Blog Award are simple:

  1. Select another blog or other blogs who 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. Include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award at the The Eye-Dancersand provide 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…

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! So until now I have only 1 star!!

There are total of 6 stars to collect.

You can check out your favorite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, you can still award them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
