Blog of the Year 2012 Award!

Dear readers, I am honored to receive a reward in the form of yellow stars:

Blog of the Year 2012 Award!

Blog of the Year Award 2012

The one from, dear Kitty petrel41, Thank you for thinking of me and giving me this award. Your site is outstanding, with a lot of articles of the live, still very interesting!

 Blog of the Year Award 1 star

I would like to sincerely thank another dear friend Maarit-Johanna who sent me a second star. The World Of Alexander The Great. Her sites are fabulous with many cultural sites of great quality. I like to read this site, with very interesting themes (historical, intellectual, and cultural of another countries …).

 Blog of the Year Award 2 star

I encourage you to visit the awesome sites of these two friends! Much thanks.

The “Blog Of The Year” award is a little different than some other awards that we have deserved in the past, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Selecte the blog / blogs you think deserve the “Blog Of The Year” award.

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog / blogs you have chosen. There’s no minimum or maximum 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 –

and include these rules in your post. Please don’t alter the rules or the badges.

4. Let the blog / blogs you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share 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 (I cannot join that group as I am not on Facebook).

6. As a winner of the award, please add 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 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!
