Awards ~ and confessions

I have a confession to make.  I tend to be a procrastinator.

In the past number of months, I have been given several blogging awards.

I have felt honored and touched each time this happens.

But I have procrastinated about accepting them and writing about them.  And here’s why:

Usually an award carries with it the requirement to pass it on to other bloggers.  I have another confession to make and here’s where I’m really embarrassed ~ I don’t follow many blogs.  I do follow a few and a number of them are “big” blogs with thousands of followers and they don’t “do” awards.  So I have felt very constricted in my ability to pass on the awards.

I have felt like I have insulted those giving me the awards by not going ahead with the acceptance.  And I apologize for that.  I meant that in no way.  I truly appreciate the awards.

I want to acknowledge those who have given me awards and tell them thank you.  And I hope they will understand what I have written here.

QuantumPhysica of We’re All Mad in Here nominated me for a whole long list of awards in this post.  Thank you, QP.  I have always appreciated your encouragement.

Paula of Paula’s Pontifications nominated me for The Shine On Blog Award in this post.  Thank you, Paula.  I have always admired your strength for getting out of an abusive relationship and for writing to help others.  I admire your yoga practice, too.

You know, as I’ve been going back to these blogs to create this blog post, I’ve realized that I have missed a lot by not consistently reading these blogs.  These women have wonderful things to share.

And, most recently, ASingleParentsLife nominated me for the WordPress Family Award in this post.  Thank you.  I feel very honored by the way you described me and my blog.
