1 blog Awards shelf


This year for MY Awards show, I will also be nominating (likely separate from the ones below) blogs to win my ‘award’.

My award is not like  a chain letter, passed around the community  as a list of  our favorites  blogs. I and I alone (though I accept suggestions) decide the Nominations and esp. the winner. Like with regular Award shows there are categories like favorite Blog, Inspirational, Travel, and more as it is a TRUE award and not  like the ones below.  as I decide who the Noms are I will likely contact ‘you’ if you are.  You will find out if you won and for what category when the Awards are ‘aired’ (likely I will also include a ‘ticket’ for you to show you are a nominee, or it will be noted on the Avatar Awards about Page

(No matter the type it IS always nice and and honor to be recognized by your readers especially when you are new to blogging and

you get one within a few months!)

You are under no obligation to accept this award. Just know I  really enjoy reading your blog, and feel you deserve to be recognized.

  1. Hi, Kim! Sorry you were feeling so awful lately, and hope all is better now! I’ve looked at your posting about the award, and it is very good! I’m so happy you accepted! To answer your question… the blogs that you nominate do not have to be only from wordpress, at least I don’t think so. Some of mine were from BlogSpot and Tumblr… just that they are blogs you like and want to nominate! … Wishing you a wonderful week! xo


    • being it’s between us, I’ll say it was mother nature but when I get it I look like death. Mom tells me I have dark circles under my eyes. (doesn’t matter how much sleep I get) and this time mine felt like that were dragging on the floor! Ok just curious on that. I think I know at least one blog I will give it to maybe even 2-3. They really are inspiring in helping, and influencing as well.


    • Hey thank you!again I posted some of the stuff i was supposed to on the Awards page. (Can’t keep making pages for awards so for now I’ll just make one for all of them.)

      I have to see about other blogs (do they have to only be Word Press?) as well as 2 more things for what has inspired me. Way behind as my ‘net connection failed this week and I was feeling really crappy so I didn’t bother to get it fixed til today & I apparently felt so nasty I so did not care as I didn’t have anxiety & panic attacks about it.!


I love feedback and comments, they help me know how I'm doing and what you want more of.
