No Awards Please

The badge I designed.

It is with some trepidation I am deciding to do this. My experience accepting and participating in awards has been positive overall; however, there are some bloggers who wish to keep low profiles or don’t accept awards anymore either. This makes it increasingly hard to pick blogs without upsetting some people. Awards should be a happy experience, not one full of stress worrying about who you will offend. So I apologetically ask you to respect my position on not accepting/participating in awards anymore. Awards are lovely but not when you end up making some bloggers upset because they got unwanted attention, or increased traffic flow, to their blog; some people blog more for themselves than to gain a large following. Thank you so much to all of you who have nominated me in the past for an award. I greatly appreciated them. But “award free” is less stressful. I’ll still acknowledge anyone who nominates me if they haven’t read this notice, but I won’t participate.Β 

My humble apologies,

  1. Oh, I just wanted to give you one and then saw this warning hehe :))
    Well, your noble decision, dear!
    Anyway, know that you got my award anyway πŸ˜‰

  2. Ooops I’m so sorry, I nominated you for an award before I read this! Would you like me to delete you from the list?

    • Thanks! No, it’s okay. I appreciate the nomination even though I don’t participate. You may leave my blog/name on the list. I only declined to participate after some bloggers(quite a few) didn’t want to be included and it became a headache for me to remember who they were!

  3. Hi Natalya, my apologies for the award, I should have noticed you didn’t want to participate. Take care James πŸ™‚

  4. I nominate you for the most inspirational “Award Free Zone Award” …..
    joking aside, your honesty is greatly admired and thoroughly understood.
    I too do not accept awards…but am very pleased to see new followers! thanks for following!!!
