Thoughts about Awards

Maine and More 353

My first thought is thank you! To all those who have nominated me in the past and more recently, I am deeply honored, and blessed. I tell My Love all the time, how awesome you are.

When I first started blogging I did not accept awards. Then I thought I would try it, in order to enjoy the interaction, and to be mutually encouraging to one another. However, I have come full circle now, and have decided to have an award free blog once again. It wasn’t an easy decision.

To be honest, I have a limited time for blogging, and I want to concentrate on my work, in order to produce the highest quality possible. I have several projects that I am spending more time on, including the “Escape” series.

I have received so much encouragement, simply from you reading what I write, clicking the like button, and making occasional comments. I love that we can encourage each other in this way!

I write a lot of comments. I love commenting on your work. Not only do I love your work, I think it’s important to pay back some of the wonderful encouragement I have received.

Peace to everyone, and thank you again.


P.S. We had a great time at the beach today! The weather is excellent, and the waves are amazing. My Love and I went for a walk last night, as the sun was going down. What could be better?

  1. That is very reasonable, Nicodemas! That was what I was thinking about too, when I decided to make my blog award free… yep, you know where I am meanwhile…lol. I just hope I keep it in mind. So please forgive me in case I forget about it. But I never expect anyone to participate anyway. Have a wonderful vacation!

    1. Erika you are an amazing source of encouragement to me and to us as readers. I would never be offended. Peace my friend an thank you for everything.

  2. I too love being at the Beach and enjoying leisure time there. Awards are a way to know we love each other; even without them the love would never end 🙂

  3. I understand your decision. I also made that decision a while ago and it is still hard when someone nominates me…for me to say “no thank you.” Glad you had a beautiful day at the beach! ❤

  4. You are so right. I sometimes see nominations that are not even thanked. Then I see bloggers that are ignored or acknowledged for nominations. I was just nominated. I did it differently. I ackowkeged, post it but left it there did not go further. I hope I didn’t offend anyone.

    1. Yes, I have done the same. No need to go further unless you want to. Thanking others is so important, but time is the issue for responding to the award (meaning taking part). Peace my friend.

  5. I too even though feel deepest gratitude and pride to get one don’t display them or get involved with them.

    It is really, really time consuming affair.

  6. @”I have decided to have an award free blog once again.” – same here, Mr Nico-Lion, from the very beginning, ’cause both my virtual and real time is quite limited… 🙂

    I totally and entirely agree with your “P.S.” – I guess you can read my mind… 😉 have a loving weekend, folks! the rest will always follow… 🙂

    1. Thank you Melanie for your wonderful comments. I really appreciate your encouragement. Yes! The rest will follow.
      By the way I recently saw a French Tall Ship known as the L’ Hermoine ( I think I spelled it right) Quite impressive. I’ll be posting more about it and Lafayette
