The Blog Of The Year Award
I am hugely honoured to receive The Blog Of 2012 Award from a truly great blogmaster, John Clinock. John runs an inspiring and amazingly artistic feast of a blog, known as Art Rat Cafe. Thank you so much John! I am also pleased to receive the second award from Joe at I Am For Change, who writes a very positive and refreshing blog. Thank you also to OA Writings Poems, Paintings for the third Blog of The Year Award. Thank you to a very talented artist, Heekeow, for her Blog Of The Year Award. Thank you so much Tarisai Mzwimbi for his Blog of The Year 2012 Award, which gives me my fifth star! Thank you so much Joe. I will now award this to three very deserving recipients, who are all talented and prolific.. Their names will be revealed after the rules.
1. Select another blog or other blogs who 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 – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/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 ‘join’ 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…
7. There are stars to collect! Yes, 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!
8. There are a total of 6 stars to collect. At which time your “badge” will look like this:
You can check out your favourite blogs, and even if someone else has already given them the award, you can still award them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
Now for my nominations and the criteria for my decision.
I am always impressed by imaginative and prolific work, which captures artistry, and takes me somewhere else. I love escaping into worlds created lovingly by others, whether they be writers, artists or photographers, if they can translate their vision and allow me to go on that journey with them then I think they deserve this award. My nominations are Chantal Boudreau, for Word Blurb, in which she reviews, interviews, and shares her own very prolific writing and stylish illustrations. Chantal has written in many genres, has been published numerous times and is an amazingly talented writer/illustrator. Ren Garcia For The Temple of the Exploding Head, an insight into his imaginative mythology, The League of Elder. Ren has not only written a mind-blowing series in The League, but has ingenious ways of promoting his world, through mixed media, through art and video, through humour and has even had made models of his wonderful characters. Both Chantal and Ren are talented writers, who also have the good fortune of possessing great business heads (something I lack personally) They also have in common with my third nominee the ‘need’ to create as if it is intrinsic to their life. Finally but certainly not lastly, Richard Guest for The Future is Papier Mache, in which he takes stunning photography of people in the city around him, capturing moments with them, translating moods and feelings, sharing many real life ‘characters’ with his viewer. I have become captivated by his work. He has a great rapport with his subjects, which shows in his photography. Richard cares about the people and places he photographs and tells us about them. Because of this his reader/viewer becomes engrossed in his work.

Wonderful Team Member Readership Award
I am very honoured to be nominated by Art Rat Cafe. Thank you John Clinock.
1. The nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar
2. The nominee shall nominate 10 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days. This can be done at any rate during the week. It can be all on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day etc.
3. The nominee must finish this sentence and post: “A great reader is..”
PLEASE NOTE RULES CAN BE ADDED TO/AMENDED if deemed appropriate; let’s be creative, and let’s grow & improve, but let’s also keep to the spirit of the award
My nominees are:
1: Michele Dacosta, (museum of documentary and fiction) for her inspirational documentary work, overseas.
2: The Amateur’s Quill, by Tebogo Ndlovu. Philosophical and poetic, and in her own words; “the phenomenon that we make an impact on the people around us, creating experiences that mold our characters and change our lives adversely or favorably.”
3: Nathan Filbert for his beautifully crafted blog exploring language and art. Man of The World.
4: Just A Thought Inside My Head, for a very intimate and artistic peeling back of layers.
5: Lesley Carter, for her ultra adventurous travel blog, making the real world look fun! Bucket List Publications
6: Michael D Woods, Writer and artist. Pest Control Technician.
7: Falling Short of the Absolute Truth is an experiment in story telling.
8: Afternoon Tea, short stories by Darla McDavid.
9: Beautifully written poetry, by Julia Dean-Richards, at A Place For Poetry.
10: Pfugler, mythology and folk law from around our galaxy. Some unusual and creative short films by Cynthia Echterling.
A great reader is… open minded enough to explore new concepts, to recognise themselves in what they read, even if momentarily. Empathy and imagination allows us to place ourselves in the lives of others. Emotion, conjured by a fictional catalyst, can only work if the reader relates to and empathises with the characters. The writer is just a conduit, it’s the reader who breathes life into what he or she reads.
The Addictive Blog Award
I was very pleased to receive this award from Sonya Glyn Nicholson who writes an inspirational blog called Ironically: Rare, Acts & Deeds of the Style Prowess.
To accept, I must post the awards on this page, tell who sent the awards, write about why I blog and then recommend others (up to 10) and notify them that they have been awarded.
The reason I write.
Since an early age I’ve never really felt part of the real world. Although I am interested in real people, I feel somewhat disconnected for large intervals. I felt my body and my self didn’t quite belong together, because I wanted to be treated the same way as my brother, but society and nature derailed this delusion. As a child I used to face this inability to be part of a ‘group’ by becoming different people inside my head, by placing myself into the role of someone I was more comfortable being. Children do this a lot, but for some reason I never quite grew out of this phase. I didn’t start my first short story until the age of twelve, but found comfort in writing. It enabled me to express myself in ways that eluded (and still elude) me in real life. This mutated into other reasons through time, with my father’s death and all the inevitable questions that occur as a result of attempting to accept something so final. Hope springs from grief, along with many other conflicting emotions, which become fictional cocktails, mixed to create new lives, lived far away from the grimness of something so painful. I learnt to take parts of the real world and place them safely into new people, fashioned from everything and everyone who has had an impact on me in reality. Without this cushion I would be nothing, I would be reduced to feeling inadequately trapped inside the body which didn’t fit me as a child. The best thing I’ve done in reality, is to have created a real son, but in fiction I can create whole worlds, become anything I dream and share that with others in ways my clunky socially inept self couldn’t possibly pull off in reality.
Now here are 10 very addictive blogs:
1: Deidra Alexander’s Blog. In her own words, “I have people to kill, lives to ruin, plagues to bring, and worlds to destroy. I am not the Angel of Death. I’m a fiction writer.”
2: Welcome to The Asylum, by the very talented J.S Chancellor
3: Word Blurb, by Chantal Boudreau, a prolific artist, writer and reviewer.
One Lovely Blog Award
Thank you to Michele Dacosta, (museum of documentary and fiction) who has one of the most inspirational blogs on wordpress; for the photographic and documentary work she produces overseas in troubled countries. I’m honoured to receive the One Lovely Blog Award from her! Thanks also to Tina and Caroline for The One Lovely Blog Award. You can visit their website, A Readers Review Blog, here. Thanks to Mary Myers for The One Lovely Blog Award. Thanks also to Gabriel for the One Lovely Blog Award to, Paharidotme at Discovering myself, and to Tebogo Ndlovu for the One Lovely Blog Award too! Thanks to Steven L Campbell for the One Lovely Blogger Award, and to Sage Doyle for the One Lovely Blog Award and Christopher at Reality Enchanted for his One Lovely Blog Award
Now for “The Rules.” Anyone nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award must do the following to keep this unique prize rolling:
- Thank the person who nominated you and link to them in your post.
- Share seven unknown things about yourself.
- Nominate other bloggers and blogs you like or admire… 15 or so if possible.
- Contact the bloggers you nominate to let them know and to link them back to your post so they can read “The Rules,” too.
The second “rule” demands that I share seven unknown things about myself, which will not be easy.
Here are the seven.
1. When I was young I thought I was a boy.
2. I still secretly believe I’ll meet my characters one day, as they are as real as living people to me
3. I get on better with ‘loners’ than large groups
4. I used to have a big crush on Glynis Barber (Makepeace)
5. I prefer cats to dogs
6. My family are more important to me than most other things apart from writing and drawing
7. I’m generally quite a confused human being
Now here are the people who I believe deserve to get my vote for One Lovely Blog Award (If I could nominate Michele Dacosta as well, I would!)
1. My good friend Chantal Boudreau for her prolific writing, artwork and reviews.
2. The Unknown Phlogger for some beautiful art photography, poetry and writing
3. The Temple of The Exploding Head, by the very funny and talented Ren Garcia
4. My amazing son, Sam (12) for his ambitious and imaginative poetry
5. Welcome To The Asylum, by J.S Chancellor
6. Appropriately Frayed, by Unsouthern Belle
7. Living In Fairyland, An etiquette guide for sl!!s
8. The Future is Papier Mache by Richard Guest
9. Art Rat Cafe by John Clinock
12. Steven Leo Campbell, creating new worlds
13. If writing was a child’s play
14. Flying over a forest, LC Aisling
15. Nonoy Manga
I discovered today that I have won the Reader Appreciation Award after being nominated by Steven Leo Campbell. This is my first award for blogging, and I’m intrigued that it’s a reader appreciation one. I don’t know who created the award, but I’m glad to see that Steven was a recipient too.

I spent some time looking over your illustrations Cheryl. You have a nice touch. This link, http://www.coroflot.com/individual/projects is to my Coroflot portfolio. Like you, I use my own illustrations to inspire the descriptions I write.
I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for following my blog. Your artwork is beautiful! Writing takes courage and a willingness to look deep inside yourself.

Hi, Maia, you’re welcome and thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it! Cheryl
I say, you are prolific! Thanks for the likes, I am very struck by your illustrations:how many pencil sharpeners is that so far?
You’re welcome, and thanks for stopping by, lol, I use a standing knife 🙂

Thanks, I’ll definitely be making those sweet potato drop cookies!!!
You’re welcome and it’s good to meet you too, good luck also with the publication. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate it. 😀
I love your imagination. I also love your epitaph: The writer breathes life into a story, but the reader keeps it alive. My favorite quote is similar: from READING IN THE BRAIN, by Stanislas Dehaene: he quotes Alberto Manguel, who says: “The existence of the text is a silent existence, silent until the moment in which a reader reads it. Only when the able eye makes contact with the markings on the tablet does the text come to active life. All writing depends on the generosity of the reader.”
Hi Virginia, that’s very true!
Thanks for stopping by my rather small and new blog – I look forward to exploring your amazing work x.

Thank you 😀 Good to meet you, glad you stopped by and took the time to read. I appreciate it. Cheryl
Hello Cheryl Moore,
You’ve been to my blog a couple of times and expressed “Like” so thank you for that. I’ve been to your blog a few times and realize the complexities that make up a person need not be understood to be appreciated. (That’s my way of saying, “Wow! You go girl!”)
So now I’m asking for your help. If you or any of my daughters (or sons) read these posts (http://mlbergitn.wordpress.com/tag/alice-zeorlin/) what would your reaction be? Not so much what is your reaction to my reaction but “What is your reaction to global protocols, manifested in local politic?”
I’ve tried to be fair and honest in my approach to life. We share that trait.
I think your illustrations, stories, and writings are wonderful, so I nominated you and your blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. (I posted the requirements on my blog just in case you feel like going for it – http://www.oilpastelsbymary.com)
Hi Mary, thank you!

Good to meet you, too, and thank you!

Hi Cheryl, thanks for stopping by my blog and following me. Your blog is awesome and I can see why you’ve been nominated for Best Blog. I love your artwork and slightly envious.

Hi Cheryl. Thanks for visiting and following my blog. You’re drawings are amazing! What an incredible amount of work you’ve done here. I wish I could draw my characters, but I have no skill in the visual arts. Instead, I have to satisfy myself with scouring the internet or through magazines for images, or else gawking at people on the street who resemble my characters and hoping not to get my a** kicked for staring too long.
Hi Janna, thank you, yes I used to do that too 🙂
Hi Cheryl, thanks for following my blog. I must say your illustrations and writings are an inspiration to me. Keep up the good work! 🙂
Hi good to meet you and thank you too! Cheryl
