Blog Awards: My Answer to Fandango’s Provocative Question

Fandango asks what we think about blog awards that direct us to answer questions and then select ten more people for awards, which in short order leads to a million blog awards.

I think they can be a good incentive for and introduction to new blogs, but most veteran bloggers adopt an “Award-free” stance after a year or so. By, then, they have acquired followers and leave the device to those who need a means to meet other bloggers. On the rare occasion when I am nominated in spite of my “Award-free Blog” notice, I just give sincere thanks but I don’t answer the questions or nominate other blogs.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I think people do pick blogs they like, so I guess that is the award–the appreciation of another blogger. And the fact that those awarded read each others’ blogs helps them to gain followers.

    I agree, they may help new bloggers join/build a community, but so often they are accompanied with questions and answers, reminiscent of the teenage chain letters from years gone by. ‘Read and pass on’
    So, like you I give polite thanks but do not take part.
