A Postscript about the VB Award: a doubt, a complaint and a plea

–On August the 1st, just twelve days ago, I wrote a post about my recent nomination to the Versatile Blogger Award. In it, after giving my sincere thanks to my nominator (fellow blogger Cheynoeas’ Thoughts) and according to the required procedure, I nominated in my turn a few other bloggers whom I thought deserved this same award. I chose six after a very long consideration of all the factors and conditions asked by this particular award’s norms. I had the option to choose up to fifteen blogs, but I really had no time to do it, being a requisite to explain each of my elections and briefly describe the blogger’s merits.

So, I nominated six bloggers, exposed their assets and tagged their blogs –in such a way that they would receive a notification to approve the tag and the quotation… to accept the award (or not) and, maybe, send a word of thanks to me; which I honestly thought they would do –at least some of them.

However, not a single one has dropped a single word to me, and except one, none of them have even “liked” the post.

I am not entirely sure to have done all things well: added the right links and said the right words… but after several revisions, I do not see any mistake in this sense. It is also possible that some have not noticed the notification about my directly tagging them. If you have, after twelve days I should conclude that none among my nominees has mattered a darn about being selected and complimented.

And I do wish to know it, just to clarify what has crossed their thoughts. —You know, I felt personally very glad to have been nominated for my first award as a blogger, and then, in spite of being truly busy that day, I wrote several messages of gratefulness and, two days after, a long and laborious post making my own nominations, as I was told to do.

I am tagging here down again four of my nominees (not the remaining two, since one is already death and the other is so extremely occupied directing a newspaper that I directly asked him not to respond to me):

My Nominees (again…)

Just please, tell me if you do not want the award or simply did not like being nominated by me, so I may remove the tags and the comments about your blogs in my previous post (you will find it quickly clicking HERE). Then I would perhaps nominate some other bloggers instead. Also I would feel quite less sad and despised if I knew of some reason for your silence that I am unable to think about right now. Anyway, any sincere explanation, even if it hurts me, will be way better that the icy indifference of your silence.

Thank you!

  1. Hello Li, I’m so sorry! I didn’t see your nomination! Now that I have… here’s a huge thank you for appreciating my writings. I don’t think I got a notification or something, but then again I’m not exactly a WordPress expert… I’ll definitely look into it now. Once again, huge thanks and I think that your other nominees must have missed it somehow too! Hope you understand…

    1. OMG, that really uplifts my spirits :! I do appreciate a lot your words (and your having missed my previous tagging! Ha ha!), since I had begun to believe that all of you had despised my nomination, and… I tried to think of a plausible reason for it (and the only one that had come to my mind was rather painful, as I’m, explicitly, a gender-variant person). Thank you dearly, Elisabeth! You have truly made my day ❤ 💐 ✨ – or at least, my night :))
