Words on Awards

Thanks so much Kirsty, for this award - I'm going to look up "self-aggrandizement" in the dictionary as soon as I'm finished this post -
Its always a warm and fuzzy feeling to have other bloggers let you know they like what you write, isn't it?
I have a problem though -
I only follow a handful of people.
And I'm very happy with them so I'm not really looking to enlarge my circle
Which leaves me with nowhere to go in passing awards on
So, if its all the same to you, I'd like to try a different way
Like wait for a special moment (as in a post that really grabs me)
and then hand on an award to one person for that.
Is that allowed?
Or is there a "Blog Award Rule Book" that says I must design my own award for that?
(Mind you, that might be fun!)
Oh, by the way, Kirsty's award carries with it this text:
"This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships.
These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement!
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
Please give more attention to these writers!"
Have a good week, people.

I think that is a terrific idea! To give awards based on a specific post. Yeah.

Kirsty said...

Fantastic idea allie! I have to confess to holding on to my awards for way too long too... I finally did it, and did them all together, thereby "breaking the rules" for the other 2 awards I got!

Hayley said...

I agree....great idea!

Oh and I left you another award too!

allie said...

Glad you all like the idea!

I've just reread my post and realized that I've made it seem as though I don't think any of the blogs I follow are worth giving awards to!!!!!!!

You know I don't mean that, don't you?
Huh? huh?

I'm sure you know me better than that by now

Congrats on the award...I agree I love reading what you write. Great idea for passing it on!

allie said...

Thanks so much for the award, Hayley and the turbo-boost to morale from you, Lynette.
Right back atcha!

I'm liaising with Mel - we are trying to come up with a home-made award for special posts.

Watch this space. . .

Yes, I think the one rule of blogging is that there can't be "rules"...everyone does it their own way (including with awards).
