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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

    • 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.

      Please accept my thanks for your nomination, it means so much to me.

    • My dear friend artandkitchen, I am humbled and truly thankful to you for nominating me for these lovely blogging awards, it is friends like you that keep me grounded and incentivised to share my images with the blogging world. I do however receive many award nominations and although I accept your nominations in the spirit they were intended, I wont however complete the process due to the time it takes to do so.
