Even this obscure blog has been nominated for an award or two, putting me into a quandary. Most blog awards come with the expectation that the recipient answer some questions about themselves and nominate some number of other blogs.
First you say, “Hey, thanks!” Then you say, “Hey — whaa? That’s, like — work!”
Which is why I’ve hoisted this flag:
To be fair, I see the reason behind the “chain letter” rule. Blogs are a form of social media, and answering those self-revealing questions and “passing it on” promotes networking among bloggers. Trouble is, it makes me squirm to rush around looking for blogs to tag, thereby lumbering their owners with the same obligation. So now I say, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
To anyone who has deemed this blog worthy of an award, I appreciate the consideration. I welcome your comments on any of my posts, and encourage readers to check out the excellent blogs I follow. Scroll down until you see them in the sidebar.
