So I didn’t realize this, but I was nominated by twice for The Spirit Animal Blog Award. Even after reading about this award, I’m still not quite sure what it means, but I want to thank both Charles French and Jennie for nominating me.
However, I do not feel that I am deserving of such a nomination at this time. I do not feel I have done enough with this blog or gained enough followers to deserve any sort of nomination. I still have a long ways to go before I reach the level I want to be at, and I need to work a lot harder before I feel I deserve any kind of recognition. There are bloggers who post more often than I do and who come up with some amazing content and those are the people who deserve nominations and recognitions, not me. So as of right now, I just cannot accept this nomination.
I’m sorry if it seems disrespectful to the people who nominated me and to the award itself, but from a very young age I have always believed what we get in life is based on how hard we do or don’t work. And in my opinion, I do not feel I have worked hard enough at this blog to deserve a nomination for any sort of award. I need to feel like I’ve worked hard for it and earned it, the same way I do with my grades in school or to get a paycheck at my job, and I don’t feel that way right now.
I want to work hard and provide enjoyable and helpful content for the people who read my blog as well as any new readers who come along and I want to continue to communicate with others, sharing stories and ideas and experiences. So these are my goals and motivations right now, and I hope everyone who has supported me this far will continue to do so because things can only get better from here!
