The award came with questions that nominees need to answer. Here are mine:

Why did you start blogging? It was a school project, which is currently coming to a close, but I intend to keep it up.
Sweet or Savoury? I love savory, but I’m going to have to go with sweet. Desserts are my favorite thing ever!
If you were to go on any reality TV program, what would it be and why? Hmm, those look very intense. Probably some kind of desserts show, I’m not sure which one.
What was the last thing you Googled? Rice Crispy Recipe
Night In or Night Out? Night in.
What has been your favourite blog post to write? Probably my interview with Heather Roth.
What’s the one thing you never leave home without? My phone.
Where would you most like to travel to? India would be amazing! There are so many places I could visit there.
If you could have any super power, what would it be? I’m not sure if this is a “super power” but I would love to be able to breathe underwater! It would be so great for when I have swimming.
What can we expect to find from your blog in the future? Mostly the same things but I am going to try to branch out with my recipes. Maybe some more interviews.

The same questions above are to be answered (if they wish to participate) by the following nominees, :

Lovinghomemade
Cupcake artist
Bunny Kitchen

What is The Imagine Award?

“The Imagine Award” is an award created by Jenn Mulherin (who is the writer of the blog “My Fibrotastic Life!”) in October of 2013. This award was made in order to recognize the bloggers who express their passion and dedication towards their blogs through their creativity.

How is creativity found in a blog?

Just like beauty, creativity is in the eye of the beholder. There are many unique ways which bloggers can express their creativity. Creativity can be displayed through:

Words (such as writing fictional stories or real life experiences, poetry, quotes, using metaphors, etc.)
Pictures (this can include photos, comics, computer-drawn pictures, etc.)
Videos
The layout of the blog page
The degree of creativity is one of the qualities in a blog which not only draws more readers, but it shows how much the blogger cares about their blog. The caretaking of a blog is like taking care of a plant. In order to keep it healthy and growing, you need to feed the blog with your ideas and give it a lot of love.

If I am nominated for The Imagine Award…then what??

In your post which is dedicated to your award…

1. Copy and paste the award to your post.
2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog page to your post.
3. List 3-5 things about the nominator’s blog that you like (which you think are very creative).
4. Nominate 5 other bloggers/blogs which you think display a fantastic use of creativity and imagination.
5. Notify your nominees.
6. Copy and paste The Imagine Award to your blog page.

Awards!!

Wow! I am so grateful for the awards that I’ve just been nominated for! First, I would love to thank the amazing Jhuls! I am so thankful! Jhuls has nominated me for the Blog of the Year 2013! Oh my gosh, thank you so much! Next I want to thank Poppy, for nominating me for my second star! She’s great you should check out her blog! Thanks so much!! Next, I would like to thank Fae! Thanks so much for nominating me for my third star! She is so amazing! Thanks again!

20131122-200624.jpg

Here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.

3 Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them – (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)

4 Come over and say hello to the originator of the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award via this link – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/

5 You can now also join the ‘Blog of the Year’ Award Facebook page – click the link here https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/ and share your blog posts with an even wider audience.

6 And 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 start collecting stars…

20131113-175826.jpg

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! You can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award – or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award six times!
