I am declaring my blog an award free zone. I established this blog to share my writing journey while working on my memoir-in-progress and to build a community of sharing my personal thoughts on life, faith, words, and memories. From time to I may include writing tips and resources as well as book reviews.

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 me 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.
