After reading To Award Or Not to Award on the blog Seeking Susan~Meeting Marie~Finding Family about giving and receiving blogging awards. I was sorry to learn that people are falling out over this. I had no idea it was such a loaded topic. I have decided that Catherine is right. It is only fair if bloggers, like me, who never fulfill the requirements of passing on the awards to other bloggers, let people know so that when awards are being given out, they go to people who will do all that is required. I googled and found quite a few “Award Free Blog” badges but I decided to design my own and post it in my sidebar. This doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the awards I’ve received or that I am judgmental about who gets or gives awards. I do and I’m not.
