Who doesn’t like awards? Awards keeps you inspired and encourage you to do better. I have written a blog, why bloggers shouldn’t decline award nominations, you can read that here. One thing I have noticed is that many bloggers keep the award nominations open to everyone, they don’t mention the name of bloggers. There might be many reasons behind this. May be, they don’t have the time to choose bloggers or they don’t want to make other bloggers feel bad. There might be some other reasons also but, in my opinion, you should always mention nominees for award nominations.
Why shouldn’t you keep award nominations open to everyone? Why am I saying this? The reason is that when you don’t mention nominees and keep the award nominations open for everyone, it discourages bloggers to take part in nominations because you didn’t mention their names. Due to self-respect or some other reasons they don’t take part in nominations. Believe me, most of the time no one takes part in nomination when you don’t mention name of the bloggers.
When you mention bloggers, even then some don’t take part so how you can expect bloggers to take part in nominations when you don’t nominate them at all. Award nominations not only promotes your blog, but also it gives you the power to encourage and help other bloggers, this is why, you should always mention bloggers for award nominations.
Always mention bloggers for award nominations.
