The 2013 Reader Appreciation Award

By Jueseppi B.





I love awards, getting them is cool but passing them around is so much better. Ms. SilentlyHeardOnce gave The ObamaCrat.Com™ this 2013 Reader Appreciation Award and I am so grateful to her for this honor. You must visit her blog: Silentlyheardonce for poetry, inspirational post and genuine thought provoking words of hope.


Ms. Silently was one of the first bloggers I met in our bloggersphere when I started over 13 months ago. She is inspirational and a role model for parenting and living through life’s curve balls. I admire and respect Ms. SilentlyHeardOnce.


There are rules to this award.


And I am about to break them all.


My nominees for The 2013 Reader Appreciation Award are as follows and not because they commented or followed this blog…but because I appreciate them for varied reasons.

My Newest Blog Of The Year Award Nominees

By Jueseppi B.


Blog of the Year Award banner 600




I want to thank ivonprefontaine for awarding me a fifth Blog Of The Year Award. ivonprefontaine blog,
Teacher as Transformer, is an amazing place to visit and learn.  I strongly suggest you stop by and visit his creative take on education.


I know I will miss some bloggers who deserve this award and I know others do not accept awards. To the first group, I apologize and, to the second group, I am deeply grateful for your contributions.


The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

  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. Include a link back to this page Blog of the Year 2012’ Award at the Thought Palette and provide 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…


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! There are total of 6 stars to collect.


You can check out your favourite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, you can still award them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!


For more information check FAQ on The Thought Palette


The blogs I follow are truly an eclectic group, but they share one thing: they each bring joy into my life on a daily basis. Here are the bloggers and their sites I would like to nominate:

Again, many appreciative thanks to my friend ivonprefontaine for this award.



The Candle Lighter Award

By Jueseppi B.



Nothing is more gratifying than to be recognized for doing something you enjoy. I enjoy spreading truth & facts when it comes to politics, mixed in with some of my favorite recipes, a few book reviews and a touch of movie opinion. I have found my retirement niche in blogging.

Ms. DanLrene from the blog “Work The Dream” has nominated me for The Candle Light Award. Since I can’t improve on Ms. DanLrene’s words, I shall borrow them to describe what exactly The Candle Lighter Award is all about. I admire Ms. DanLrene for her support and kind words since we first met, she inspires me and I love her blog style.


In the words of Ms. DanLrene: This award was created by Kate Kresse , who also has a great blog. You can read the story about the creation of The Candle Light Award by clicking this link. Ms. Kresse says: ” I call my award The Candle Lighter Award. It is for blogs and bloggers that light a candle in the darkness with their blog.”

To be nominated by Ms. DanLrene is an honor. There is nothing else to do for this award except award it to other bloggers, no questions to answer, no revelations about myself, just choose those who light a candle in the darkness of the bloggersphere.


So, I have picked the following blogs to receive this award:


Ms. Kelly at On My Muse


Southern, Ametia & Rikyrah at 3CHICSPOLITICO




Ms. Karmen at Peace for Every Living Thing


Ms. Tina & Ms. Jennifer at Project 365 Veterans


Ms. Kimberly at Silently Heard Once


Ms. Tracey at The Ramblings of an Intellectual Sistah


Mr. Nelvin Ray Love at Poetic Trends


Ok I am done….I hope you will go and look at all these blogs above for they are really great and click follow on each one. And I hope those that I nominated will carry on handing out this award to help encourage us all to keep writing.
