A Second Blog of the Year–2012 Award

To begin this post, I just want to say that I honestly had no idea what to expect when I began The Eye-Dancers blog late last summer.  It was definitely new territory for me.  But it has been a genuinely wonderful and rewarding experience.   I’ve really been enjoying writing posts and especially hearing from my fellow bloggers.  Thanks to everyone who’s been reading and following this blog.  If it weren’t for all of your great comments and feedback, I probably wouldn’t even be here at this point.  But as it is, and thanks to you, it’s certainly my hope that The Eye-Dancers site is only just beginning.

I want to thank Jennifer Paetsch for nominating me for Blog of the Year–2012.  This is my second star for the award.  Thanks, Jennifer!  I encourage everyone to visit Jennifer’s site and to give her new novel, Ghost of Doors, a try.  I have read it, and it’s a wonderful read.  She is a talented wordsmith; her prose has a unique and even lyrical quality to it, and I cannot recommend her novel highly enough.

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, ‘A Second Blog of the Year–2012 Award,’ at the The Eye-Dancers and 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!

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!

I would like to nominate the following blogs for the Blog of the Year~2012 award.  They are all fantastic sites, and very diverse sites, with loads of great material.  Please pay these blogs a visit and dig in–there is a virtual banquet of delectable morsels, photos, poetry, and so much more to be found.  These are the kinds of places where it’s easy and enjoyable to spend a few minutes, or hours.  And I hope you do just that . . .

    This is my second award-I am confused about the process of collecting stars.My previous blog of the year 2012 has 3 stars. For this new nomination do I put 1 star in the sidebar? Or put 1 more star on the older blog of the year award.
