Author Posts March 3, 2013 at 8:25 pm #1170662 emmywritesMember Is the whole “you have been nominated for the very inspiring blog award” thing going around a real thing, or is it fake? Something seems fishy about it. The blog I need help with is thetalesofanopenbook.wordpress.com.

Normally, people use this to get you to post a badge on your site, one that links to their site. That’s why people invent these awards.

I haven’t been on here too long, and since there was no official award page, it seemed like what you were saying was what was happening. Thanks!
