To receive a blogging award, particularly from people that you both admire and respect, is such a lovely thing. It lets you know that you’re on the right track and that others really do appreciate the time and effort that you’ve put into your blog. If it were possible to gracefully accept these awards and pass on a small, heartfelt word of thanks I would perhaps feel a little differently… However, with the speed at which life seems to pass us by, I find it challenging enough to find time for blogging itself, along with everything else I like/need to fit into my day, so responding in the lengthy formats that these awards require, would unfortunately eat into very precious time spent with my family.
Please don’t take this to mean that I don’t love getting your feedback… your comments and thoughts will always very much be welcomed and always responded to! Thank you for understanding.
