Thanks to PIAZZA DELLA CARINA with presenting Silver Lining blog with the “Blog of the Year 2012″  Award. 🙂  Thank you again I really appreciate it.

The “Blog of the Year” award is a little different from some other awards, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the ‘rules’ for this award:

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, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.


Here are my nominees even though it was really hard to choose there are really many great blogs! (I decided to include different types of blogs some political, photography, food, etc.):


Le Superkikke

Aletho News




The Truth Warrior

Palestine Rose

Bucket list publications

    This is the proverbial silver lining Zeinab. Congratulations, you are my blog of the year every year since I stumbled across you. A bit sleepy tonight, am a little confused at ‘rules,etc’ but when you’re smiling, I’m smiling. May the Almighty bless and keep you in His merciful arms.
    definitely the silver lining to my day,
    with respect and affection, kate.

    Guess what happened, I clicked the Facebook link and it said membership in the group is closed, I’ll try going at it from different angles, as I couldn’t even find where to click ‘like,’
    Wanted to let you know, tho it could possibly be my cmpu’r ineptness prevailing this afternoon.
    I’m going to promote this article to my few dozen friends, which I’ve noticed can make an impact for successful response
    congrats again and talk to you soon, Zeinab.
    With love and affection, as always. Kate.
