The End Of An Era

I’m always appreciative and grateful when someone says something kind about this blog or honors it with an award, and I’ve just reached a decision that I’ve long considered and kept putting off until now.

I no longer plan to accept blog awards. I will always be grateful to those who have nominated me for them, and I may even on occasion answer questions, etc, that are part of an award, but going forward I need to better balance the way I spend my time on-line.

Thank you for your support and understanding!

    I had to do the same thing – the time it takes to respond got too much. I would rather spend my time reading the blogs I enjoy, and concentrate on my writing. So I get it!

    Makes so much sense Russ! 🙂 I also don’t accept awards because of the same reasons.

  3. I accept them but I rarely do a post about the awards
