I'd like to thank the academy...


Is it wrong to accept a blogger award, but not the requirements of the award? And if it is wrong, what is the punishment for doing so? Will I be banned from receipt of future awards? Will I have to forfeit some followers? Will I receive glaring looks from other bloggers? When I meet a fellow blogger on the street, will they cross to the other side? Or will my fingers fall off so I can no longer blog?

Just weighing my options here because while I'd like to profusely thank Misha for the lovely award (as seen above) and I will definitely provide a link to her blog, the requirements of sending it on to 10 of my new favorite blogs and revealing 7 interesting facts about myself are, sadly, things that will have to be added to my to do list--right in between "Revising the great American novel" and cleaning the cupboard under my bathroom sink. Just saying...I was never very good at any of those chain letter thingys. I always broke the chain and I probably will now with the Stylish Blogger Award chain. Sorry.

Please visit Misha's blog here and tell her how awesome she is!!! Oh, and become her follower so she'll know she didn't give me this award in vain.

It's like you know! (0.0)

Lol good going on breaking the chain. I used it as an excuse to blog when I had nothing to say. Wonder if I'll get shot for saying that....

Can't wait to read the great American novel...

Hi Valerie,
Don't feel bad for breaking the chain. Just thank the person who awarded you (it's only fair). We do this for fun. I, too, got the same award from Chelsea at Coffee Tale Reviews. And Misha and I are following each other. As a matter of fact, we left comments on each other's blogs today ;)

I always break the chain too! Last time I got a blog award, I was so new to blogging that I didn't know 10 other bloggers to forward it to!

BTW, I just made your list of followers a nice even 170. :) I thought I was already following you, silly me.

I think you'll be okay :).

I usualy break those as well unless it gives me an idea for a blog.
