I have a question for you all. Do you like blogger awards? Do you like receiving blogger awards? I know they aren't chain letters, but sometimes they sure feel like it, especially with statements like this:
"To accept this award, you must pass it on to seven other bloggers."
Yeah, sure, I don't have to follow the rules. And I could just not accept the award. But then I just feel bad. I hate feeling bad.
I guess I've never really seen the purpose of a blogger award. Are they just a way to get a post written? To get more followers? They have helped me with the first; can't say they helped with the second.
Maybe my problem with awards is that there are so many out there. They have kind of lost their meaning, their specialness. Everyone seems to get them; everyone seems to pass them on. Am I overreacting here? Have I just shot myself in the foot? What do you think? I'm open to hear your opinions! Maybe you can change mine.

On Monday, I blogged about writing 10,000 words this week. I think that mark was a bit ambitious. With reading MY SUNNY VAMPIRE (out loud) in the afternoon, I don't get quite as much written as I should. I'm also a little stuck on Book #5, so it's going slow in the morning, too. Ugh! So, yeah, I really don't think I'll hit that 10,000 word mark this week. It was a good thought, though.
