What are your views on blogging awards? Do you think they serve a purpose? Have you ever received any?
Please see the end of this post for a few other questions I have for you . . . and please weigh in!
(Note: This was first published as a page on this site. I’ve deleted the page and am republishing it as a post instead, because I’m still proud of my “newbie” accomplishments from last year!)
Awards for l’il ol’ me?
Wording Well used to be called Lorraine Reguly’s Life (back when I was a newbie blogger). Lorraine Reguly’s Life received many awards. I’m proud of them all, too! 🙂
What awards are for
Awards seem to be mainly for “new” bloggers, don’t they? Newbies are recognized in the blogosphere through them. Awards provide recognition and inspiration. They are like a pat on the back from an older sibling or parent. They also help you connect with other bloggers, and even offer a new blogger a few backlinks.
What else are awards for?
Yes! I even created a video to show you how to do this. It even shows you a trick you can use when notifying others of their nominations. 😉
A few facts and stats
The Liebster Award: The Official Rules + My First Blog Award and a Few Personal Secrets Revealed also hit the number one slot on Google search! (Yes, I’m proud of this!)
Apparently, I’m Now “It”! is a post where I started making a mockery of such awards. This is perhaps my funniest post ever!
The last two awards I accepted are the Versatile Blogger Award and the Awesome Blossom Award:
Have you ever received awards for blogging? If so, which ones?
Did you like the recognition they provided?
What do you think about the tradition of passing on awards to others?
At what point in your blogging career did you “stop” accepting awards?
Should newbie bloggers still be encouraged to accept them?
Are awards a vital part of a blogger’s growth?
