How're you all doing? It's now Week #12 of our 52 Weeks of Blog Community Project. And yes - it's our fourth and final task for our Month Three Party.
So, what's up for this week?
Well, this week, I invite you to give someone a Blog Star Award. That is, if you know a blogger (or bloggers) who made a difference in your life - I urge you to give that person (or persons) a Blog Star Award.
To read more about the background of this award, check out the Blog Star Awards page.
So, how can you give someone a Blog Star Award?
Well, you can do so by either:
1) Sharing your nomination in the comment section here; or
2) By giving the award on your blog (write a post about it). If you do this, please share the URL to your post so I can link back to it.
If you decide to blog about it, you're welcome to use this image:
You can either save it to your computer and upload to your own photo hosting service. Or, you can use this code (just change [ to < and ] to >):[img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y252/scoggins/blog-star-award-general.jpg" border="0" alt="You Are a Blog Star Award"]
To help with your Blog Star nominations, here are some questions that you might want to use as a guideline -
1) How long have you been reading the blog you're nominating? And, how often do you visit?
2) How did you find out about this blog?
3) Can you describe this blog in 3 words?
4) What makes this blog/blogger a Blog Star?
All those who get nominated during this week will be added to the Batch 2 awardees list on the Blog Star Awards page, with corresponding links to you - the one who nominate the awardees.
So, I'm looking forward to seeing who you'll give this Star to this week. I'm excited to discover more amazing bloggers out there - and recognising their contributions to the blogosphere.
Again, just a reminder that this is the LAST task for Month #3. All participants in Weeks 9 to 12 will be eligible for the raffle draw on our third virtual party - scheduled for 11th April 2008. Prizes for the month: A custom-made art journal + a b5media gear. We will choose two winners in this round.
Anyway, it was really cool seeing everyone's 'faces' via Gravatars in last week's task. And, I'm loving that I can now associate images of 52WoCers in other posts (as well as in other blogs). So, here are folks who joined last week's task...
Yay! This looks like a record-breaking week in terms of number of participants. So, thanks again, everyone. Always happy to see 'regular's And, a big warm welcome to Lin and Jen to 52WoC. Glad you can join us!
