There is a proliferation of blog awards out there in the blogosphere. The thought is well meaning and nice, BUT. The problem I have with them is the “pass this on to five deserving blogs”. There are so many deserving blogs, how are you supposed to choose only 5 or 7 or what ever number is specified. The turmoil created, at least for me, is not a pleasant experience.
It would be too easy to offend some one, or hurt a friends feeling because you didn’t award it to them. So I am saying no, and want to get it out front so everyone can see. I grabbed this neat little badge from Vikki’s Blog, and will keep it posted so there will be no question of my position on blog awards.
