I deeply enjoyed participating in blogging awards since I joined WordPress. I am indebted to all blogger friends who considered me worthy of awards. However, since last few weeks I have not been able to respond to many award nominations and this saddens me. I don’t like mingling many awards in a single post: they lose all sense that way–those who are nominated don’t know which awards they are being nominated for or which rules to follow. I therefore consider it better to declare a blog award free than to cover too many nominations in a single post. I still highly value the awards. I feel and hope that I will be able to find other ways to express my gratitude towards fellow bloggers. Thank you so very much for nominating me for all those lovely awards and accepting my nominations so far!
