There are some pretty cool awards floating around the blogosphere. It’s true that accepting an honor, fulfilling its requirements, and passing it on can add yet another serving to your already overflowing “to be done” plate. Sometimes we just can’t respond to an award. I’ve been guilty of losing an award because I didn’t bookmark or write down the generous giver, and I feel bad. Thank you and I’m sorry to anyone that feels I snubbed them.
Lisa Gail Green presented a clever solution to passing on an award in her Paranormal Point of View blog.
We have to guard our writing time fiercely, but if you find a sliver of a moment, I think adding a link to the award chain can send some positive vibes out there to cyberspace.
Here are a few reasons why,
- may send you to a blog you otherwise wouldn’t visit
- connect writers and give a sense of the peer community that’s out there
- let you learn details about a blogger you might never know thus providing a giggle or the occasional guffaw
- help build followers for a fellow blogger
- encourage new bloggers to stick with it

So I'm sending lobster, I mean the Liebster to these delicious voices:
Pass the butter, and share your opinion on blog awards. Happy Fall and welcome to my new followers.
