I blog for fun and practice writing, trust me, I need the practice. I don’t blog for accolades, recognition or awards. I am not the stuffy, unsociable type, I just don’t believe in the blog awards.
I do understand the linking and back linking aspect of blog awards. I simply don’t think they are quite that appropriate any longer. Not to mention the feeling of guilt when I just can’t find the time to do a properly appreciative post, thanking my friends, family and loved ones as if I were winning a Grammy or something.
I enjoy writing, and reading other blogs of interest to me. If I find one I am more than normally impressed with or absolutely smitten by, I will share it with those who chose to read my blog. I feel it’s a more respectable and appropriate way or recognizing the writing, photography, art, or general creativeness of others.
Thank you, but no, I don’t participate in Blog Awards.
