Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I know it's quite "heady" to receive Blog Awards. At first...

And then it might get tedious, to have to pass them on, and add them to your Sidebar. And adding all those things to your Sidebar will add to the load time of your blog.

And you'll begin to notice that the same people keep getting Awards after Awards. And it begins to be kind of silly.

All the above, is what SOME of us have found. And why some of us, have chosen to say our blog is an Award Free Blog.

And after having that particular notice on one's Sidebar, it isn't necessary anymore. Because the good Award giver people have noticed that we aren't still "in the game."

All of the above, is more than you need to hear. But over time, it's become a BIG ISSUE with a lot of bloggers. And just maybe, you haven't see this, as yet...

I'll now trundle off...... :-)

Kelly said...

Congratulations on all your awards, it's lovely to see that your kindness doesn't go unnoticed!

Lots of Love
