  1. While I appreciate the sentiment behind the nomination, and acknowledge the sincerity of your opinion, I respectfully decline the nomination.

    Some time back I became aware of these nominations and wrote a post specifically related to these types of awards. The post is linked at the bottom of each of my subsequent blog posts with the intent of avoiding this particular occurrence.


    Understand it is not my intention to minimize the recognition you received, for I have seen your work and can easily understand and concur with you being nominated (and I predict you will get more).

    But much like being Freshly Pressed, these awards are counter to my own peculiar way of looking at the world, and the way I want the world to interact with me.

    That said, first and foremost I sincerely hope you will not feel hurt by me declining your generous nomination, and second I hope you will not be resentful because of it.

    Thank you.

  2. I thing we all know how it works,but I can see the posssitve things on it.
    The way i see it is to know each other little bit better.Im sure i never write something for Marallee on my blog…now i wrote..Hope you understand.
    Sometimes problems or something fake or negative can bring us closer 🙂 thats a fact 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination – very honored, don’t know much about the award … don’t have clue neither do know how to link – have to play around a while. Then I have to nominate too. Very exciting. Maralee – you made my morning. *smile

I'd love to hear from you
