I've been ambivalent about taking a position on accepting awards. This actually hadn't been a consideration until recently when Kittie at The Block gave me an award soon after Nancy at Blissed Out Grandma gave me one.

When Corgi Dog Mama posted this graphic on her blog, something in me said, "Amen Sister!" So I lifted the graphic from her and now I'm assuming the same position.

I don't wish to be ungracious or insult the generosity of Kittie and Nancy, but I don't feel like blogging is a competitive sport. Every blog has it own unique qualities and appeals to different tastes. In the scope of things, my blog is nothing special.

This is certainly not meant to disparage anyone who gives or receives awards. I'm just opting out of the awards scene as I'm sorta embarrassed by it all. Thanks for understanding.

Well said sista!

I respect that...a couple of days ago I moved mine to the bottom of the page and something in me said that I probably won't accept any more, either. Unless it's a Pulitzer or a Nobel, or....

And thanks for your comment on my latest post...on all of them, for that matter!

Everyone has to do what they feel comfortable with!

I have been given a couple of awards and I do feel the same as you.
I blog because I enjoy it and I do it for me.

While I think it is lovely to get them, I'm with you on the I get embarrassed by them. It always seems to me like showing off, which I'm not comfortable with.

I haven't actually put mine up, however it did thank the people who had given them to me.
I wish I had thought to do the same as you and in fact you have now given me the idea that maybe I should.

It's good that you have done this and made yourself comfortable about it all and in such a gracious manner. I think it is the right thing to do, to be true to yourself.

much love
