I received the Sunshine Award from a few happy bloggers.
I want to thank Lynn at Midday Escapades, Danetta at Go YAY!, Jen at My Inner Foodzilla, and Soapstar Canada for passing on the Sunshine Award.
Another award from Jen at Review Retreat I received the Happy 101 Award. Thank you very much Jen for thinking of me!
From Laughing Lindsay I received the One Lovely Blog Award. Many thanks Lindsay for passing the award my way.
Lastly I received the Prolific Blogger Award from Sandra at Bargains 4 WAHMs. My heartfelt thanks Sandra!
A Prolific Blogger is one who is intellectually productive… keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content.
Like I said I am speechless. I am thrilled to be thought of for such fabulous fun awards.
However - here is where I break the rules or the chain so to speak. I love getting the awards, and truly appreciate the love behind them. I feel it really is too much pressure to ask the recipient to nominate so many other blogs and there are so many rules to follow to accept the award. Seriously that's a lot of pressure! How many of you may have not accepted an award because of all the rules? My reasoning is this - It becomes more of a who can I give this to instead of a "Wow I really received this". Don't they start feeling like a chain letter to you? I would like to see the awards going back to meaning something special for your blog. It is more meaningful to just pass the awards on to one blog to tell them you admire their blog in some way. There can be explanations of the awards to tell them what it is about and why you are giving it to them. Maybe even create your own award to give out to the blogs you adore. A gift from you to them.
