Blog of the Year Award

Thanks to the lovely Valentina Cirisola, an Italian expat living in sunny California and inimitable blogger at Valentina Designs, I have been awarded the aforementioned prize. THANKS, Valentina, I am so thrilled and honored to have been one of your picks.

Now it’s my turn: I nominate:

The Wanderlust Gene where an uncommon life in Sri Lanka unfolds;

Il Viaggio di Rebecca where the author paints landscapes of the Milanese hinterland;

Valentina Designs where inspiring ideas for a creative life abound;

MyHomeFoodThatsAmore where mouthwatering recipes are detailed.

Nominees~~Here are the rules:

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 – 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

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…

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 favorite blogs – and even if someone else has already given them the award – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!


Thanks Valentina!
