It’s Award Season

I am a long way behind with my awards. I mean a looong way.

I was nominated for the Wonderful Team Member Readership award by The Retiring Sort in November last year. The rules for this are:


1. Display the logo on your page. 

2. Finish the sentence: “A great reader is … Someone who reads a post and takes it in. Someone who will comment on a post and give their feedback, and will happily come back to read more posts”

3. Nominate 14 readers they appreciate.

4. Inform the readers with either comments or pingbacks.

Here are my 14 nominees for this award, and thank you all for taking the time to read my blog. I do apologise if I don’t nominate you, I have over 500 readers, and I would nominate you all if I could.

  5. AnElephantCant accept an award
    He doesn’t do blogging for this
    He doesn’t mean to be hateful
    He is awfully grateful
    It just isn’t who he really is

    Thank you for the kind thought, it is appreciated.
    If it helps, AnElephant will be happy to answer your questions on your blog comments to show his gratitude and good intentions.

    • 🙂 I find the awards are more to give a shoutout to other bloggers, so it’s only fair to mention those that don’t take part in the chain letters 🙂

  9. Thanks for sharing the love! I love reading the answers to all of your questions when these things come your way, your so comical and witty! and it’s always nice learning more about you too. Congrats on some well deserved awards 🙂
