Liebster Blog Award

Yay for Friday! I'm so super looking forward to my weekend. It's been a big week. 

I'm just stopping by to say Thank You to The Gingham GingerLive Well & Breathe & Miya Loves for all nominating me for a Liebster Blog Award. 

I haven't done anything about the nominations until now, because I wasn't sure that I wanted to participate. I appreciate the hell out of the nominations, and out of my readers, but I don't know that I like the idea of participating in what is basically a 'chain letter' thing. 

It's not that I am not grateful, because believe me I am, to be nominated not just once, but 3 times, is absolutely amazing! It's great to know that people read and enjoy my blog. And it's not that I don't want to show my appreciation for blogs that I enjoy, I'm just not sure that this is the way to do it. 

I'm still not sure yet, what I want to do. This may make me sound like a real bitch, but it's the way I feel. I also feel that I am fairly open with my blogging. There isn't much that I don't share here. And that's because I feel like it's an online diary, of sorts. I like to keep it real. 

Anyway...I'm still mulling it over. What are your thoughts?


  1. I feel the same way about the Liebster Award and others that are along the same vein... I think it's fine that other people want to play, and sweet when people think to recognize me and tag me in it, but... After I participated in it once, I was done with it.

    Because the thing to me is... And this is going to sound so jaded and bitchy... It's not an award. It's a meme... a meme that guilts you into participating by calling itself an award.

    1. Oh good. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one that feels this way about it! x

  2. It is nice when people nominate you for these things, but I do not do them anymore...and it doesn't make you a mean person. :-)

  3. It is a chain. No pressure. It's just a way to meet other bloggers and have something to post about. Sometimes I do them, sometimes i don't.
