After a week of voting for how we feel about blog awards, the poll is closed. Here's how the numbers stood shortly after the poll was begun:
And here are the final numbers:
Surprisingly enough, the results changed very little as more people voted.
As a result of the votes, I changed my blog's status to "award-free" and noticed that some others have too. Others are still exchanging awards and having fun with that, which is wonderful as well.
One of the reasons that I asked the question to begin with was because I was confused as to which bloggers liked exchanging awards, and which didn't. Thanks to the ingenuity of Olde Dame Penniwig and some other creative bloggers, we now have graphics that we can display on our blogs to make our award status more apparent.
All in all, I think this was a fun exercise and a tribute to the camaraderie and goodwill that exist in Blogland. That we can peacefully agree to disagree is impressive. Way to go, girls!
