Creative Blogger Award

creative blogger

I’d like to thank Blair of People, Things, and Life for nominating me for the Creative Blogger Award. It is always nice to be recognized by one of your peers for your efforts. I’ve gone away from following the rules of these awards and will continue to do so, but I wanted to thank Blair for nominating me.

Since I am not very good at talking about myself, I’d like to challenge each of my readers. Please check out Blair’s blog. Besides being an amazing writer, she is a wonderful young lady with a big heart. Also, I would challenge each of you to go to the WordPress Reader and put in a tag of “Poem” or “Poetry” and find a new blogger you aren’t familiar with that produces quality work and follow them. Let’s continue to be supportive of our fellow writers and look for undiscovered talents!

  1. This is a good idea. I’ve been nominated for several awards and lazily haven’t done anything with the nominations. I hope it doesn’t come across as me being ungrateful. I think its more that I have just procrastinated and not known what to say about myself. I should probably go back through my blog, gather up the nominations I’ve had and write some kind of group thank you and pay it forward type thing like you just did.

    • There are various attitudes on these awards. None of them are right and none are wrong. Some people politely turn them down. Others follow the rules and some go the route I do and acknowledge the recognition but don’t follow the rules.

      I don’t want to be disrespectful to the people that nominated me and obviously read my blog and find it worthy of the honor. It is always nice to be honored by your peers and be recognized. My personality lends to not being good at talking about myself but turning the spotlight on others, so that is the route I prefer to go.

      This is the route that works for me. I guess we have to just discover what is right for each of us individually.

      The upside of these awards is that it helps people discover new blogs.
