My Awards and Something New

There are lots of awards out there that you can nominate people for.  They are a great way to thank people, or support blogs that you like.  I have four awards that I need to accept and reciprocate, but then I got thinking, always dangerous, what about the people who support me.  I have some people who always take the time to make a comment or let me know that they have liked a post that I have written.

I really appreciate the support that I get from these people, and so I decided, that there needs to be A Thank You Award.  I have never seen one, so I am starting it.  The rules are, you just acknowledge all the people who support you, but please start by acknowledging the person who gave it to you.  For your supporters, there isn’t a magic number, it might be two blogs, or it might be 100, it is up to you.

All the awards have images and this is the image for this award.  Sunflowers, a friendly, sunny flower that always makes us feel better.  I was going to do chocolates, but it would be too tempting to eat them all.

So here are all the people I want to say thank you too.

There is a large list of people I wish to thank.  It has been great getting your comments and I do appreciate the time you take to let me know what you think.  I know there are people I have missed, but I hope to do this again.

You don’t have to do the same, but I think it is nice and it would be good if this could be another one of those awards.

Speaking about awards, I have never really shown on my blog what awards I’ve been nominated for, and thus have found myself being nominated for some more than one, so I do I accept it again, or can I only accept it once?  I have put an awards page up the top so that other bloggers can see what I have been nominated for.

    Congrats! Thanks for showing the way to other wonderful blogs.

    • Thank you, they are all wonderful supporters and bloggers. I hope you enjoy their blogs as well.

    • Thank you, I have never seen one like it, so don’t know if one existed, but I decided that there should be one that just recognises that support you.
      You are one of my best supporters, so you were definitely going to be on the list.

  2. This is such a special idea! And thank you very much for nominating me – I will respond properly tomorrow! :)

    • You are welcome. It was a given that you would receive it, I love hearing what you think of my posts.

    It’s very thoughtful of you Leanne. Thank you!

  4. Thank you very much for the mention. I will do the same later this week.

  5. Thank you Leanne. I always enjoy your blog – your photos and the writing. And the award you have created is a wonderful acknowledgement to all the people who support the blogger.

    • Thank you Colline. I enjoy hearing what you think of my blog, and love that you always comment. You have become one of my best supporters, so you had to get a mention. I thought it was about time that something like this was created. I hope people use it to thank their supporters.

  6. Thanks for the award. It is easy to comment and like your posts because they are so good.

  7. That’s a beautiful badge of gratitude, Leanne…and a beautiful idea. Thank you for sharing your kindness and appreciation. You are MOST welcome for the comments and support. :)

    • Thank you, glad you like it. It is a small thing to do to say thank you, and to show that I really do appreciate hearing from you. So thank you again.

  8. Thank you so much!!!!! What a great award to create! I was hoping for one like this one, but I also couldn’t find one! Great idea and thank you so much for thinking of me! You deserve every bit of praise that you get for your photography! I show your photos off to my family and husband, lol! They are all very impressed :) Thanks again! I can’t wait to post it!

    • I thought the same, I had seen lots of awards posted here and there, but not one that is just to thank people. I think people who support you should be rewarded in some way.
      Thank you for all the kind words about my photography. I still feel like I’m learning. I hope you continue to enjoy what I post. Thanks again.

    Thank you again! Your blog is a fave of mine, and one I show others. You always reply, comment and share with everyone, and that welcoming caring spirit shows in your writing too. I will be sure to carry on your Thank You Award next; how fun that you started it! :)

    • What wonderful words to hear, thank you. It is good to hear that people like what I am doing or trying to do. Thanks again.

  10. Thank you, Leanne! I’m really chuffed with the award! What a great idea. I’ll “wear” it with pride.

    • You have been one of my best supporters, there was no doubt I would mention you. Thank you for all your support.
