      Hi stoneonarollercoaster. All you need to do is basically post what I have at but change the name of the person nominating to me (with a hyperlink to my blog, then type the “Rules of the award” list, then answer the questions that I gave you (not the questions that I answered), then type 11 random facts about you, then nominate 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award (ideally different than the ones I nominated), then give those you nominated 11 new questions to answer. See my blog (link referenced above) to see how it should basically look. You can also copy the award picture into your post.

      One of the other nominees I chose already posted about her award. See it at . She found an even more colorful award image, you might prefer to use. She mentioned my blog, but did not put a hyperlink to it, which is OK, but ideally there should be a hyperlink.

      I hope this helps.

        Oh, I’m sorry it was giving you so much trouble. If you’d like to post about your award nomination, just take creating the post slowly. I know it is a bit of work.

      Oh, I forgot to mention that you’ll need to contact all of the people you nominate.
