I’ve noticed the topic of awards has been brought up a few places lately like Pudgy Penguin Perusals and The Bumbles Blog. I know that every time I’ve received an award from fellow bloggers I’ve been thrilled and honored to even be noticed. Sometimes I can’t believe anyone but me is reading my blog! The awards are clever and a friendly way to get to know each other. I use to post all of my awards but they took up space and were slow to load on my dial-up connection. I may just create a page and post a link to it. While I haven’t kept up with them lately, I do thank the sender immediately and put a lot of thought into who I’m passing them on to.
While they are very much appreciated they are also a lot of work. Sometimes I wonder if the person I forward them to will be happy to receive them or am I just adding one more thing to their To Do list? And is it rude of me to decide not to post them on my sidebar anymore? What do you think about blog awards and what do you do with them? Do you have any clever ideas to share?
