The “NO” Strings Attached Award

Paul, from Alfred’s Almanac created a new blog award, called the “No Strings Attached Award.” A few weeks ago he bestowed this honor on me!

Thank you for reading my blog Paul, and I appreciate your sense of humor, which is much needed in blog-land. My apologies for the lateness in responding to this award.  Go and check out his blog.  Paul always has some great music videos playing, sit down – have a glass of wine or a beer.  Enjoy yourself!  The conversation is great.

What was really interesting about this award was that Paul took the time to ask his fellow bloggers what they wanted.  We all voted on the type of award we thought was best.  In the end, Paul added up all the votes and The NO Strings Attached Award was born.

What does this award stand for, you ask?


Paul says:

The No Strings Attached Award, is an acknowledgement of respect from one blogger, to another. If you are given this award, it means that a fellow blogger likes your work and your blog.

That’s it. Simple.”

There are no rules to accepting this award. You can choose to display your award on your blog home page. If you do this, you do not need to nominate any other bloggers, unless you wish to do so. You can thank the blogger that awarded you. You have the power to do whatever you want with this award. Once you have been nominated for it, you can then pass it on to others.

There are so many blogs that I follow that deserve recognition – more than I can even begin to share.  Thank you to all of you for the hard work you put into your blogs, your writings, your photos…


Here are a few of my personal favorite new bloggers just getting started, (or who I have recently met).  Please welcome them into our community and check out what they write about.

  1. This reminds me to get around to writing an Awards post, including this one from our friend Paul. Such a simple idea for an award which I think is going to do so well. No rules Award = No stress.

    Congratulations, Colleen.

    1. I need to do some more also. I have 3 more waiting in the wings. I think on January 1st I am going to ask that any more awards I receive will be handled in my Quarterly Blog Boogie recognition. It is just too much work to keep up with them all. However, I do want to support new bloggers because that is so important. I just think a quarterly post is the best way to do that. Thanks Hugh. 🙂

    1. Thank you. I was so bored with all the black, white and grey. I hope you all don’t think I am so conceited with my own photo up there :-/ My daughter is actually drawing something for me. She is so busy right now with the holidays. When she gets that done I will change it up. 🙂

        1. You actually could do a pub theme for your blog and load the pub image as a header and find a cool background at or some other ones I know of. I will look for some free images of jukeboxes you could use too if you like… 🙂

  2. First of all: Congrats, Colleen, for another sign of appreciation! This kind of aware is a wonderful idea. Simple honoring without an attachment of rules in order to participate. Wonderful!
