Personally I think blog awards are a good thing. Without going into the minute details, I think it helps bloggers connect, especially new bloggers who haven’t yet had a chance to establish their blogs in any way.
I stopped posting award acceptances last year. It wasn’t really a conscious decision, just that I got busy doing other things, and people just kept on sending them, so a backlog developed.
I keep a record of who’s awarded me, when and what award – it was too difficult to keep track otherwise. When I receive an award – I always make a point of thanking them, and popping over to their blog to say hi and like and comment. This I believe is the correct way to do it, even if one isn’t currently “doing awards”.
So, now I have a backlog of around 125 awards. Question is – do I accept them all ? One award per day would take 4 months ! Or do I just continue on with the current system. Or something else …
I haven’t made a “final” decision, I’ll probably keep my options open anyway – but I thought I’d throw it over to the floor and see what you guys think in a poll :
