A Blog of the Year 2012!

We’ve been awarded The Blog of the Year badge by the lovely (and talented) Janice Horton! It’s a great honour to accept and pass on this award, particularly as the loveahappyending.com magazine-style blog is a team effort. From the Editors who run the features, to over forty authors and associate readers who contribute, it’s one for all and all for one!

We’d also like to thank our visitors and all of our supporters on Twitter and FB. In your honour we will be raising a glass of something sparkling and taking the opportunity to wish you all a wonderful holiday season!

In choosing six blogs to pass on this wonderful award, you can imagine a group of 42 people came up with a very long list. All were deserving and in a way, it was almost impossible to choose, so we’ve taken the liberty of adding a few more and here are our top 8…. We have some wonderful supporters who do so much to spread the word and felt that these deserving blogs should receive our ‘heart-felt’ thanks! The top votes received were for:

The fabulous Shaz Goodwin

The amazing Kim The Bookworm Nash

The bubbly Lou Graham

The lovely Dizzy C – Carol Wright 

JB Johnston at Brook Cottage Books

Susan Livingston from Fascinating Books

Lindsay Healy from The Little Reader Library

Nikki Bywater from Books4U

but honourable mentions were also expressed for some other other wonderful bloggers. So festive hugs to:

Nicky Wells (every author’s friend and an amazing rock chic)

Authors Electric for supporting new authors

The Romaniacs (a fun bunch of ladies)

Melanie Robertson-King (lovin’ that enthusiasm!)

Richard F Holmes (LAHE Twitter King and dual title of funniest and most uplifting posts)

Sapphire Star Publishing  and Safkhet Publishing (For Tweeting our Blog!)

to us you are all stars!

The rules for this are:

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 – 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 the Facebook group.

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 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!
