Award Free Blog

I am declaring my blog an award free zone. This blog does not accept blog awards of any kind. I established this blog to share my writing journey while working on my memoir-in-progress and to build a community of sharing writing tips and resources.

In such a community, I believe appreciation shows when we comment on each other’s blogs, link to them, share each other’s posts on social media, or reblog them with a short statement of approval. I do not give out awards and do not expect to receive them. A “like” or a comment from you will make my smile, and I’ll visit and chat with you in turn. But please, no blog awards.

If nominated, I will contact the nominator and respectfully decline, but beyond that I will devote my time to writing my blog posts and my book.

I hope that you understand my position.

  1. Thank you for this policy, Sherrey. I just noticed this page and agree 100%. Not only do they clutter up a blog, but they are a better indicator of who knows who than who really does what.

    1. I finally decided I needed to put this up or continue to have people email me or in a comment tell me they had awarded me this award or another. Primarily my decision was based on both of your statements above. Glad to see I’m not alone in my opinions.
