Blog awards do make beginner bloggers feel better, but after you have been around the block a few times, you realize that they serve no purpose other than spreading spam. If I wasn’t so lazy, I would make my blog an award free blog, because I don’t want to receive any more nominations, answer any more stupid questions and have to nominate anyone else. It becomes a chain mail situation of spam after a while, so I refuse to nominate others. So far, I have not refused an award, but I have stopped nominating others, because I don’t like to put a burden on anyone.
