Success never comes solely from your own efforts. There are always others along the way who give you a hand up; encourage you; or give you that resource, or piece of advice you never could have done without.
When someone inspires you, or if you see someone who is using their writing gift to help others, please take the time to thank them publicly by giving them this award (and the rukes for passing it on.)
This award is open to anyone to use. You don't have to receive it, in order to be able to give it. Please take the details and images off this page and use it to encourage another writer.
The rules for passing it on are very simple:
- You are welcome to give it out as many times as you like, but it is only to be given to a maximum of one person per blog post. If you wish to give multiple rewards, please space the blog posts by at least a week, so that the sincerity is maintained.
- Introduce the person; say how they encourage, help or inspire you; then link to their work and/or social media profiles. There may be a specific post you wish to link to which helped you. It's up to you.
- Please publicize your award post to Twitter or Google Plus using the hashtag #writtenkindness so that others can find and follow the award winners.
