Awards and Award Policy

I appreciate all of the nominations my blog has received for an award. I am honored that you have thought enough of my blog to extend the nomination, however, as those of you who have posted awards are aware, they are tremendously time consuming. Unfortunately, I have decided I will no longer take part in awards. If someone wants to nominate my blog for an award, I will accept it in the spirit given, but I will not be posting nominations.  I hope all of my blogger friends understand.

    I cherish our interactions and greatly appreciate every act of kindness you have sent my way.


  2. I hear you on your stance about awards. I am thinking of doing the same thing. Like you said, they are just so time consuming and I’d rather put my precious time towards something more essential. Good call… fully support it 🙂


    1. I kept putting them on the back burner, but they were on my mind all the time. I felt guilty not doing anything about them, and I’ve noticed more and more people are opting out of doing the awards, so….


  3. Hello!
    I have nominated you for an award. You can check the details here –
    If you don’t do awards or have already received this one, kindly accept it as my appreciation for your wonderful blog. But then, if you want to, you can acknowledge the award & share that one thing which you feel can make the world better. That will be fun!
    Lots of love,
    Madhusmita 🙂
