Grandma Says..

Observations and views from a different set of eyes



Oh, you guys and gals!  You make an old lady blush!  You make my heart go pitter-patter and you just keep sending the love.  This page holds all those special Awards you have sent my way (my closet got full).

Under each gift of recognition, you will find the names of the bloggers who nominated me; bloggers who hold a special place in my heart for reading, commenting and passing these awards to me.  And they have kick ass really great blogs, take a moment and check them out.

When I got my first award, The “Liebster”, I kept checking my mail for my trophy (my mail carrier started to worry about me..she worries about me a lot!).  So, I looked into the award system here on WordPress and found that bloggers pass these awards to other bloggers with the purpose of recognizing them and to get their nominees to pass the award to other bloggers.

I’ve heard the word “chain letter” associated with these awards; but I have discovered that they bear no resemblance to a letter that threatens you with death if you don’t pass it on. I also discovered that receiving and passing the award on gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling.  A “Hey, someone reads my stuff!” kind of feeling.  Nothing like it, my friends, especially for a new blogger.

So, the shelves you find here in this room will be filled with Awards that I have received and will be passing on to other deserving bloggers.  I’m still working on some of them; but do not despair…Awards not posted yet are all in draft form and I’m working on them daily!

If you are nominated, I hope you brighten someone else’s day by giving out these gifts of recognition and giving a great big Thank You to the blogger who nominates you.  Feel the Love!

So, now,  if you enter my site, you can just click on the “Awards” page. When you’re in the room, do me a favor and dust them off, will ya?  Cranky don’t dust!

    Granny, I have added you to MY WordPress Family! I am about to publish but, I noticed you’re already part of someone else’s? Just wondering 1-do you mind if I still add you; without the need for you to follow up with Rules? 2-Who awarded you? I haven’t found a post linked to that ‘award’? I noticed its not here either lol?! I hope you will still be honored! 😉 You make me smile, thank you for all your wonderous shares…J9
