Nancy Shuman at The Breadbox Letters was kind enough to name me one of her favorite bloggers of 2012. This is my first award for blogging. Thanks, Nancy! Below are the rules for this award.
“The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:
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: — 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 ‘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 favorite blogs — and even if they have already been given the award by someone else — you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!”
There are so many good Catholic blogs that I am still discovering. My top five favorites (not necessarily in order) right now are:
1. The Cloistered Heart, Nancy Shuman’s spirituality blog
2. Conversion Diary by Jennifer Fulwiler
3. Suscipio4Women, a blog for encouraging women in their vocations (run by Jenny)
4. Catholic by Grace by convert Denise Bossert
5. Roman Catholic Spiritual Direction by Dan Burke, author of Navigating the Interior Life
Thank you all for the inspiration!
