I decided to make a new Blogging Award. I think the sense of community that the bloggosphere provides is great. People read and love the effort that others make and they want to let them know. Only I think it would be nice to be able to award someone without there being any more expectations than that. Just to say ‘You’re blog is great’. That’s it.
So here is a new one
The Clements Award
For outstanding blogs that make the blogosphere better!
It is a blogging award that you can give to the outstanding blogs you love. It is to let them know you love their blog and appreciate their efforts.
What makes this award different from others?
There are no strings attached. No requirements to accept it and no questions or links to write up. YOU GIVE THIS AWARD EXPECTING NOTHING IN RETURN. It exists solely to let bloggers know you love their blog and you think it is outstanding.
How do I give this award?
Leave a comment for your nominee telling them why you want to nominate them with a link to this post so that they can see what it’s about. Much the same as other awards.
What do I do if I receive the award?
The only guideline is to write a post displaying the award badge and thanking the person who awarded it to you with a link. It is only a guideline. You can accept the award without linking to the awarder, but it is polite to thank them. You can display the award on your blog with your other awards.
You can decline to accept by not writing a post accepting the award.

I like this idea! Takes the fidgity details out of a blog award – so many have such a long list of things to do. Still worth it though.
I have been trying to find enough time to do the stuff required for a few for ages and just haven’t had the amount of time to do it so I thought I might make one that I can give. I like the idea of giving it expecting nothing in return. I don’t want to give an award with the motivation that they will link to my site. They might, but it would be nice if it was their choice and not a requirement 🙂
I’d like to give you this award. I’ve really enjoyed your photographs and many of them have brought a huge smile to my face and if that isn’t worth an award I don’t know what is!
Thank you Gerty! I will put it on my blog! I am so happy to hear that you enjoy my photography 🙂 I love sharing it with others and I often wonder if other people like them or whether I am a tiny bit biased toward my own photography 😉
Be very assured that your photographs are worthy of approval.
Thanks for the award, and I’m very pleased and flattered you like my blog. All the best, Richard
Thank you for the award. I am happy you enjoyed my photography. I haven’t been politely declining some awards these days because of the long list of things to do before you can even accept it, this one is different, and I am happy to accept 🙂
Very thoughtful of you =) I like this and relate.
Kudos to you!
Peace & Love,
