I have decided to add a "no tag" button on my blog.
I first saw this button on Janet's blog here which she obtained from here and after reading on quite a few blogs recently how people no longer wanted to participate in the awards and memes craze that sweeps blogland continually I felt it was time for me to make my stand also.
Now don't get me wrong I am not ungrateful that people think me worthy of these awards it is just that I find it hard to take them serious anymore.
In the beginning I was so chuffed to think that someone thought that my blog was great and that they even bothered to read it sometimes- but I just find it somewhat annoying to be persistently asked to pass the award on to other people and then feel bad that I don't really want to do it.
I have taken the stand of not passing it on, hoping it will stop at me.
I have apologised privately to the people recently who have given me awards --so hopefully they need not feel upset when they read this post.
I do often wonder who thinks up these ideas and how they start to circulate like the flu virus.
And I do hope that I have not offended all my internet friends by taking this stand but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
OK now I have that off my chest I will get back to stitching and hopefully create something beautiful.
