Many thanks!


A big thank you to Dear Kitty. Some Blog for nominating me for the “Blog of the Year 2012″  Award. It was a lovely  surprise and much appreciated. 

The “Blog of the Year” is a little different from some other awards, because you accumulate stars. Here are the ‘rules’ for this award:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve this award.

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number  required – 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 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…


Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect! 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. Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.


There are so many great blogs, it’s been very difficult to make my own nominations. I’ve decided to choose 15 of my favourite blogs, but will no doubt have forgotten many others that deserve this award.

Here, in no particular order,  are my nominees:

Country Corners

Science on the Land

Dear Kitty. Some Blog

Cristian Mihai

How to spy on birds

The Secular Jurist

The Foraging Photographer

Experience the Wilderness

Passion for Cats

Why Watch Wildlife?


Canadian Hiking Photography
