Starry starry blog


The lovely Vikki has nominated me for the 2012 blog of the year! Thank you, Vikki.
The rules for this are - 
"1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen — and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page ‘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 the Facebook group.
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… 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."
I'm passing this on to -

Teresa Lovely short story writer who shares pictures of Indy. (not the reason for the award, but if you comment on this post, you could win a book)

Hilary I learn something new from every post.

Alex The awesome ninja Captain and champion of all insecure writers.

Write 1 sub 1 They're encouragement has helped a lot with my short story output and inspired many other writers to get their stuff out there.

Vikki She's learning so much about writing and sharing the best tips with us plus she's just so nice. (If I've understood the rules correctly it's OK for me to award her a star)

Wendy's Writing said...

That's great Patsy. I only recently started following your blog as I've only had my own a few months but from what i've seen, the award is well deserved.

Well deserved, Patsy. The rules are a bit complicated, though.

charliebritten said...

Btw, Patsy, I've nominated you too. (I should've said that in the post above.)

Patsy said...

Thank you, Wendy.

Patsy said...

They do sound complicated. I think the organisers have gone to a lot of trouble to properly explain everything and that's resulted in repeated info - better than not explaining at all though.

Patsy said...

Aaaw, thanks.

Alyson said...
