Just a quick little post here about Awards. I meant to do an Award Free post ages ago, in fact I thought I’d done it. Perhaps my memory is going? I think I got as far as doing a Bitstrips cartoon, I found this in my picture files. So time to get to it before anyone else nominates me for an award, (particularly if said person is a good friend.) I really do appreciate it so much but due to time constraints I just feel it’s time to step back from these type of awards for now.
In the past I have been blessed with the following awards:
One Lovely Blog Award, Real Neat Blog Award, Premio Dardos Award, Liebster Award, The Creative Blogger Award, Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, Sunshine Bloggers Award, Blogger Recognition Award, The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, The Versatile Blogger Award. I think that’s the ones I’ve had… Oh, I nearly forgot there was also an Encouraging Thunder Award, I can still hear the thunder claps….
Latest – The Mystery Blogger Award.
Here’s the link to all my awards if you’d like to have a gander:
My very first award is of course very dear to me, a bit like your first baby!
I remember it well, it was The One Lovely Blog Award which was delivered to me on the 14th of July 2014:
My First Award: The One Lovely Blog Award
Plus I had fun doing The Girl Love Blog Challenge:
I will still be doing the odd challenge, time permitting..
I will be adding names of bloggers who have nominated me recently for awards. My way of saying a big Thank You for thinking of me….
Thank you :
Annika Perry – Annika nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much Annika for nominating me. She is on a similar writing journey, and we chat about blogging, writing, and books. Definitely one of my favourite blogs to follow, I count her as one of my special blogging friends.
Amalia Pedemonte – Amalia nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you so much Amalia for nominating me. Do check out Amalia’s wonderful blog it truly is a treasure chest of information about Greek Mythology, a subject that fascinates me so much that several Greek Gods and Goddesses have crept their way into my current WIP! Do follow her blog, she’s lovely, a very supportive and friendly blogger.
Inese M J. Thank you so much to Inese for nominating me for The Creative Blogger Award. This is such a great honour coming from such a wonderful photographer. I urge you to follow Inese’s wonderful blog, she is such a lovely and friendly lady and has the most beautiful photography blog.
Gary Jefferies. A big thank you to Gary for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award. Such a lovely award to receive. I do highly recommend that you follow Gary’s blog. He writes books, short stories and memoirs and has been known to participate in Kindness challenges. He is a really friendly chap and very supportive:
– Gary Jefferies – Fiction Is Food
A big thank you to Cat for nominating me for The Mystery Blogger Award.
Bye for now…
Marje @ Kyrosmagica. xx
May thanks for the shout out, Marje and totally understand about the award free zone – they can be time consuming. You thoroughly deserve all these lovely awards!😀
And you do too, thanks so much Annika for your kind words and understanding. 🙂
When I decided to go award-free, I felt such relief, almost out of all proportion!
Yes, it is one of those moments….. 🙂
Not all Marje. Many bloggers choose to go Award Free. I think there is a time and place for them and they are cvertainly a great way for bloggers to link up in the early days of blogging. Once they have served their purpose then it’s time to move on. They worked wonders for me and my blog and I have a lot to thank them for, but I knew when it was time to say goodbye to them.
Yes, definitely, when it’s time to say goodbye you do so with a happy heart knowing that they’ve helped set you on your journey. Awards definitely do have their place especially in the early days of blogging. 🙂
Time is something everyone is short of, Marje, so I think it’s quite natural to prioritize and allow yourself some room to breathe. And, wow – so many awards…! 🙂
Thanks Ramona. 🙂
LOL!!!! Brilliant x
Glad you enjoyed. x
Yep… You know it is lovely to get awards but not when you are up to here and done that award ten times already…..
Yes…. the first few awards are the best… but you’re right once you’ve done the award over and over it’s still nice but it loses its original gloss!
The worst is when you already have had that award five times……
I think it is a good idea to quit after you have a set of awards 🙂 It is why I don’t send the invitations anymore – I acknowledge the blogs I like, and it is up to the bloggers if they want to pass it on, or not. I just want to say Thank you for your entertaining and educational blog 🙂 I guess I will go award free soon. I just cannot cope 🙁
It’s a difficult one Inese. I just had to step back from them because of time constraints. But I do appreciate the gesture. Thank you so much for nominating me. If you decide to go award free I’m sure no one would think any less of you. Far from it. All the best.. Marje x
Oh I know. It is very time consuming. Hope no one nominates me soon and it will just fade away 😉
Good luck! But I’ve got a feeling that’s unlikely as your blog’s so awesome!
I am not doing awards anymore, that’s a decision 🙂 Enough is enough. I will find another way to say Thank you! I might just post links to the blogs I like, now and then. And I do share the posts on Twitter and Google +.
Oh, sounds like I prompted you!
For the good! I am a very poor decision maker myself 🙂
Glad I helped!! 🙂
But seriously, it was about a time 🙂
We bloggers make procrastinating an art form!
