I must admit, I got nominated for awards last week when I was taking a break from WordPress AND started having enough problems to be in my “I’m grumpy – might log in to read, but not writing anything” mode.
I’m honored to receive these awards – very much so. But I absolutely hate having to go through and pick just who to nominate for the pass-on. I so enjoy getting nominated, but then stew and fret over fulfilling the duties to accept the award – Which bloggers to pick? Am I portraying their blog in the way they like? Will they actually have time to follow “Da Rules” for accepting?
So after finishing my two award posts, I decided to be clever and put in the widget that allows me to show you who I like and follow – but that was a bust – the widget only let’s me display 50 – and so much of my list is left out in the cold.
Sigh… WordPress techies, can you fix this, please?
Because the list of those I follow outnumbers my own follows – because there are so many wonderful bloggers out there – because I hate having to narrow nominees down – and because I think there should be one easy to fulfill and display award (I’m lazy – did you get that yet?) I’m announcing the “Because You’re Fantabulous Award”.
This award is to be handed out willy-nilly. Feel free to award it, tell people you awarded it and give them the link so they can get the artwork for their widget area or awards page.
If the pure lackadaisical nature of this whole system leaves you feeling like you didn’t earn the award, feel free to answer questions or nominate others – but the only rule is:
It is to be awarded to you – not just copy and pasted onto your blog.
Who am I kidding? I’m not going to police this – if you’re feeling like no one appreciates you and want it for your blog, go for it – – I won’t know…
Have fun, you Fantabulous Bloggers!
Psst… By the way…if I follow you, then you’re already awarded – feel free to display it on your blog!
(I told you I was lazy, right?)
