This week Irene Waters http://irenewaters19.wordpress.com kindly recommended me for some awards, as did Jodie Llewellyn a few weeks ago for the Liebster award. http://jodiellewellyn.wordpress.com/2014/05/20/self-publishing-vs-traditional-publishing/ I feel greatly privileged to have receive their flattering messages. On consideration, I’ve decided to become an award free blog and decided they needed an explanation for this decision.
The reason for this is that I appreciate so many blogs; I do not want to choose some and not others. Perhaps it’s my egalitarian approach that we are all doing our best to improve our skills, and the competitiveness is a hindrance, rather than a help.
Inner peace is a wonderful concept; something I know blesses my life. Being a sister to you all is also a privilege, as I have never had a sister. I feel that being part of our family of bloggers has inspired me to write and hopefully improve my writing skills. Being there for one another has inspired me to try to keep up with the wonderful blogs that I like to follow. I know there are thousands out there that are worthwhile, but one has to be realistic about how much time one can spend blogging.
This is a short message to thank you all for your comments and your encouragement for helping me to become a writer. There will be times when I’m silent; hopefully that will mean I’m writing something that is taking me away from blogging. Then I shall reappear when the time is right.
If I could, I’d award you all for your writing endeavours, your persistence and helpfulness in making me feel like a real blogger, even though there’s heaps for me to learn. A big THANK YOU to you all!
Ps. I shall attempt to put something on my blog to say Award Free, and you will all know that means thank you, but no thank you!
