With friends like these…..

…you can go a long, long way indeed!

A few days ago, my dear bloggy friend, Rebecca, aka Clanmother, bestowed upon my a great honour by awarding my a star as part of the prestigious Blog of The Year 2012 award scheme via her ‘Stars Change the World’ post.

I am humbled by this nomination and offer my heartfelt thanks for it.  When I started this blog earlier this year, it was with timid steps and a small voice.  The blogging community in general, and Rebecca in particular, have helped me get into my stride and sing my song with gusto and I will always be so very grateful for that.  I am also full of admiration for my fellow bloggers.  What a wonderful coming together of passion, creativity, support, inspiration, and talent you all represent.  Thank you also, as I often say, to the many other people who read my posts, whether anonymously, or otherwise.  I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you choosing to allocate your valuable time and energy to engaging with Project LT.

The ‘rules’ of accepting this award are simple:

1.  Select the blog(s) you think deserve the Blog of the Year 2012 award

2.  Write a post about the blog(s) you have chosen – there is no maximum or minimum 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 – 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!)

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…

  1. Congratulations and thank you for the nomination! As you know, I just love your blog so I’m very touched that you thought of me.

    “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” Plato

  2. And further congratulations from me and a big thank you for my nomination. I always look forward to your posts too. My musical knowledge is miniscule but I love the way you ‘sing your song with gusto”. That takes courage in my opinion. And I want to “eat” that quote from Plato. It’s so GOOD.

    1. This is one of my favourite things about about being part of the blogging community – the randomness of Letizia, you and I being linked up in order to be able to share our delight about that Plato quote, with others enjoying it too, no doubt!

  3. Thank you, my dear friend, for creating an remarkable blog. We need more music in this world. Thank you for all the time and effort you put in to every one of your posts. You are making a difference…Congratulations to all those amazing bloggers who received you nomination. I am celebrating…

    1. Thank you for this, and many congratulations back to you for all your Blog of the Year awards. If you had not already got your full quota, you would have had all six from me! But it has been an amazing year of sharing thoughts, fun, learning and growing together, hasn’t it. I can’t wait to see what 2013 will hold.

  4. Thank you so much for accepting my nomination. I have never met anyone so knowledgeable about music – I learn something new every time I stop by for a visit. And I just have to add another quote by Aldous Huxley: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” Looking forward to our 2013 blogging adventures…
