I squirm when I am awarded and fidget when I am to award. It is good therefore, that I am not often present on judging panels. I am willing to take on the burden of another shadow following me. Another ghost. Like the earlier one, I shall bow out of this, even if I am not graceful enough.
While I can write a lot, I cannot write about what other people write — especially for the purpose of an award. I read a lot of blogs. More than those that are listed on my blogroll. And given the nature of the blogs I read, I continue to believe, there is something sacred about them that isn’t open to comparison or judgement.
