In recent months I’ve received quite a few nominations for blogging awards. I accepted the first few but came to the realization that, while these awards look lovely on a blog page, there are generally strings attached. One of these is that the award recipient is asked to nominate 10 other bloggers.
I’ve met several wonderful bloggers through Friday Fictioneers. I would hate to leave anyone out.
Also these feel like forwards and chain letters in disguise. While I don’t fault anyone for participating, my full-time job, family and other time constraints just don’t allow for anything other than the most expedient activities.
Although I appreciate the sincere sentiments in these nominations, I hope that you’ll understand my reasons for turning them down.
