Nominations for the “Best Blog of 2012″ awards

Hello, I have nominated you for the “Best Blog of 2012″ awards. Congratulations! You can pick up your awards at:

1) RD Revilo Conscious Thought: Driven By Intelligent Awareness for his wonderful and insightful poetry and his genuine quest for the truth and answers to the eternal question: Why?

2) The Snare for his wonderful mythical imagery and thoughtful writing that can sort of take you away from it all as well as his dream to become a serious and published author. Also, on a more personal note, the fact that he likes Led Zeppelin as much as I do :)

3) The Secret Keeper for her beautiful poetry and haiku that really make you think as well as her thoughtful voice and her exploration of her own truths. Also, for being a gentle voice and soul in a very harsh world.

4) On The Plum Tree for being a wonderful and thoughtful creative force, and an advocate for children and adults alike. Additionally, for being brave enough to venture into the unknown territory of human emotion.

5) LadyRomp for being a positive voice and force for women from all walks of life, and for being a strong, independent woman whose goal is to empower women to see our own selves as strong and independent.

6) The Bipolar Place for his insightful thoughts into his and many other’s disorder, and his honesty about his life as a person with Bipolar Disorder. Also, for his positive attitude while living with what can be a very debilitating disease if you let it.

The “rules” for picking up your 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 ‘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 favourite 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!

About songtothesirens

First off, I am not very funny. Secondly, I am a full-blown geek; I like chess (it is my favorite game), I enjoyed writing research papers in college, I enjoyed statistics and any other kind of math. But, in my old age (43), I have learned to own my geekdom, it is uniquely mine. Third, I have manic-depressive illness which can make life a bit rocky sometimes, like when the medications are not strong enough to treat the illness, then it bites me in the ass…..hard. Most of the time, though, I ride the sine wave that are normal moods. It is an interesting disease to have though. You do a lot of self reflecting and exploration which can be rough, but you can see where you have made mistakes and you can take action to prevent that behavior in the future. Fourth, I have learned how not to settle for anything; bad medical care, toxic and angry people, bad food, bad relationships. I just will not settle anymore. I have already been there and done that. Fifth, I have learned over the years it is not cool to puke through your nose because you drank too much at a party or a bar. Sixth, I love to read everything from fiction to non-fiction to school textbooks. I do not remember learning to read. My mom says when I was about 3 or 4 years old, I picked up National Geographic and began to read it. Who knew? Seventh, and possibly last, I love music of all types except Rap. My favorite music to relax to is classical preferably of the Baroque period like Amadeus Mozart and Beethoven. I love going to the movies by myself. If you go on a Monday afternoon matinée, there is usually no one there so it is like having your own private theater. I am also a Nichiren Buddhist by way of spiritual belief. I am basically just weird. .

    Good for you! Hope you get it. I don’t even understand the links to get involved. I am really a bit old fashioned for computers. Not mention time factors to learn it all.


    • songtothesirens says:

      It took me hours to figure out how to do it, and I still think I got it not quite right.


      • mkesling63 says:

        I can relate! It took me weeks just to get the free blog on and working. I still don’t’ know enough to upgrade. I like this better then Facebook. Facebook may be easy but you get more depth in writing rather then shit slinging with pictures everywhere.


        • songtothesirens says:

          I like both, but the blog does give a person a greater forum for really writing a longer piece. It is sometimes difficult to express what you need to say or get out of your system in the space of a “tweet.”


          • mkesling63 says:

            I had a hard time expressing myself too. More writing helps me. But the occasional inspiration is also very needed too. I think I need more practice expressing myself in words so I can say more with less.


          • songtothesirens says:

            Sometimes less is more. I write until I feel like i am supposed to stop.


  3. Thank you for nominating me! Most kind of you!


  4. Thank you. I really didn’t expect to be nominated. This is my second star for Blog of the Year 2012. You are quite lovely and rather wonderful for giving this to me. jk.
