Travel Log 10-6: She Has a Point

This morning I was perusing a blog post by The League of Dark Witch and Wizards (this will take you to the exact post) that pointed out a current trend in the blog o'sphere. The trend of awards that come with strings and "pass it on" instructions. While on the face of it this seems like a great community building tool and an awesome pat on the back I think that all may not be as it seems. If you read the original post she has some awesome points and analogies, as well as a polite and very witchy solution!
    Long story short- I now have an award's cauldron on the side of my page (which she graciously provided, thank you!). 
     Take a look yourself, you might find a creative solution to this situation=).


  1. I'm fine with receiving the awards, but not huge on tagging. I definitely link relevant posts when I'm blogging, and give shout-outs to blogs I enjoy, but the tagging thing... It is sort of distracting. LOL

  2. It's nice to receive awards, but with the ones that have been going around lately have left this niggling annoyance in the back of my mind. It kinda solidified for me when I got one from a complete stranger. Then I read Celia's post and it clicked how like chain letters they were.
    I wouldn't want to offend anyone who is kind enough to give me an award, but I don't think I would pass them on, so this is a polite and respectful way to get out of it essentially =).
