Say what? I’m nominated for Blog of the Year?

I was quite surprised a few days ago when I realised that I had been nominated by Amreen Shaikh ( for the Blog of the Year Award. Thank you kindly! Amreen’s blog is often filled with positive ideologies and quotes that are very easy to read, so you may want to check it out sometime!

Like all blog awards their are rules, and this particular one is no exception:

One – select the blogs you believe are deserving of the nomination

Two – Write a post about the blogs you chose to nominate and present the blogs with the award

Three – Let the blogs know they have been nominated, and the rules involved in accepting the award

Four – Come over and say ‘hello’ to the promulgator of the Blog of the Year award at this link:
(apparently this is a mandatory part of accepting the award, and if you do not do this, then the world will end. So, if I wake up to a meteor shower tomorrow, it will be because of YOU!)

Five – You can additionally join the Blog of the Year Facebook Page and share your posts:

Six – Lastly, link back to the blog that nominated you and (in the words of the rules) proudly display the award for all to see and start gathering stars! Yes, stars! Each time you are nominated for the award you gain another star. There are six to collect. And once you have all six, a billion dollars will come flying out from the screen. No, it won’t – sorry! I have no idea what happens once you collect all six stars. Probably nothing. Might feel good about it though!

Below are my nominations for the award (in alphabetical order):


Congratulations guys! I probably missed a couple of amazing blogs from my list, and for that I do hope you forgive me! And thank you to Amreen again for the award!

Cheers! Have a great week!
