Award-free blog

I’ve taken the decision not to accept any blogging awards on ZimmerBitch because I can’t commit the time to engage with these awards fully.

I really like the concept of sharing recognition of each other’s work, and I believe the most important aspect of that sharing is responding to the requirements of the award fully.

Instead, I would like to informally share those blogs and posts which delight, move and inspire me – in my own way and in my own time.

I hope no-one will take offense at this decision.

    • I think going Award-free is almost inevitable after a while. It’s lovely to be nominated, but I found that it took away from my time to write the posts I actually wanted to. What was your experience?

      • Agree!
        I was swept away by the honor, and acceptance of the awards…. at first.
        After a while it seemed all there was to blogging was accepting & spreading.
        Joy to all who share the memes, and I love blogging!

      • Me too; and I think I’m learning to understand what I love about blogging better and do more of that, and less of the other stuff.

  2. Yes, totally understand. I know people mean well, but after a while it felt like the “likes” on Facebook. It is a lot of work as well, and with my limited time, I’m much happier writing and reading posts. 🙂
