Hi everyone. Up to now I have kept Carole's Chatter a button and award free zone. Not for any particular reason other than a wish to keep each post based on real content and also a belief that the less cluttered my home page is the better.
I would be really interested in starting a discussion about what you think the best approach is. Obviously there could well be a different approach to buttons from awards.
So many of the awards going round seem to be a bit like chain letters. Does this bother you? I must say that when I have been nominated for an award, I feel like a bit of a heel declining it.
In relation to buttons, I don't have a button for my Food on Friday or Books You Loved series. I try to make each link event as easy as possible for people to participate in. And because of this I haven't up til now put buttons on my site where I have linked in to other people's events. I do visit lots of the other links and comment and so I do feel I am doing my bit. Again what do you think is the best approach?
