First of all I want to thank http://markbialczak.com/ me for the Blog of 2013 nomination, http://pricelessjoy.co/ for the Versatile Blogger Award, and http://madkatrambling.wordpress.com/ for the Liebster Award, and http://lorrainemariereguly.wordpress.com/ for her mentioning nominating me for the Liebster Award also!
I am quite humbled by these nominations. I am blessed to know that people even read my blog, never mind actually enjoy it. However, I must be honest… these awards remind me of a really bad chain letter. If I don’t accept them and follow the rules, which are quite lengthy at times, and pass them on to so many other bloggers, I feel I shall have bad luck in the blogging world forever, or lose precious followers. But, I must risk it.
I blog because I love to write, I love to post photographs, meet new people and hopefully improve myself in some way. I truly I hope I don’t offend anyone by not accepting these Awards, and thanks to my dear friend http://unclespikes.wordpress.com/ and his “Awards” page, for showing me that I can be truly gracious in refusing these awards. I hope you all stay with me anyway! And with Uncle Spikes blessing I leave you with his badge
