AWARDS and My Thoughts
Since accepting my first blog award the Versatile Blogger Award a few months back I have received five other nominations for the same award from other bloggers, with those nominations and other nominations received for other blogging awards I have become overwhelmed and caught up in a never ending spiral of replying to blog award acceptance criteria.
So I have decided to politely decline any future blog award nominations due to the time it takes to reply. Please don’t get me wrong, I am forever grateful to everyone who deems me and my work worthy of a blog award nomination.
So to everyone out there a BIG THANK YOU for your very king thoughts, wishes and nominations.
I agree totally with you. Although it is flattering to be nominated it is also very time consuming and if you are like me I just don’t have the time available to sit down and do all the replies and questionnaires etc.
You have a fantastic blog by the way, and your photos are stunning!
Thanks smackedpentax. You also have a great site with some wonderful images of the Great British Countryside.
Thank you for liking my blog about pro-democracy protest in hong kong. I’m an artists also so I hope you will keep in touch. goodluck. ceciliawyu.wordpress.com
I get it, I do, it is time consuming and you do not have to accept. but I nominated you anyway. I promise not to again and I don’t expect you to do anything but go take more fantastic pictures.
Thank you bluebutterliesandme, you are so kind and I do appreciate your nomination 🙂
Hi Mark! I don’t expect you to answer the questions or do anything about the awards – just wanted to put it out on nomination for the Liebster Award (http://rusticrecluse.wordpress.com/2012/08/21/the-liebster-award/ ) and get people clicking this way. Love the pictures you share here! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Thank you my friend 🙂 Your support is truly appreciated 🙂
No worries, happy you thought of me 🙂
Hi Mark. I know you are not following these things, but i thought i would let you know anyway that I nominated you for a One Lovely Blog Award. no further action is necessary or expected. 😉

Thank you my friend. I do really appreciate your kind words and your nomination, however, I will not take part due to the amount of time it takes me to take part in award response criteria.

I know you don’t do awards anymore, but I gave your blog a shout out on mine. I used to live in China and appreciate the great documentary photos you capture of the people and places of a country very dear to my heart.
