My friend Gina has written a very thought-provoking post about awards and blog stats on blogs. I just received an award from my friend Lynn at One Way Or Another (she has a wonderful blog, and I know you’d enjoy a visit there), and I was very encouraged by it. But I wasn’t comfortable putting it on my blog. I was considering what to do when I read Gina’s post. She confirmed my doubts, so I won’t be posting it. I do very much appreciate your kind thoughts though, Lynn! The award said to choose seven people to pass the award on to, and the only person I could think of was Gina, not because I don’t love all my friends’ blogs, but because Gina uses her blog to mentor younger women–I benefit greatly from her wise counsel. Thanks Gina!
