I do not participate in accepting and passing along the various “awards” which circulate in the blogosphere.
I am not blogging in order to gain a wide readership. To have a small group of steady followers who contribute intelligent responses or advice through their comments is a reward for which I say “Thank You”.
To me an award is earned after participation in a competition with one’s peers. An evaluation by a panel of judges determines if the standards for such an award have been met and who the winner is.
