This is a compliment from my blog to both you and your blog … it’s not an award, there is no need for the receiver of the Gift to do anything further … it is purely a gift to you for the blog that you manage and run. It is an acknowledgement of your writing style and genre, what you do for the community and for your audience and readerships respectively.

From my side of life as a reader to your content it is an appreciation of what you do, what you create, write and publish. It’s a salute to you, your imagination, enthusiasm and inspiration ……….. a compliment is just that … a compliment.

A published post of yours caught my attention whilst l was reading and l wanted to let you know. I liked the message or the content or both, l loved the style you presented it in or the genre it represents, the fact that it is stylish, topical, opinionated or controversial – just something about it l loved. Single posts, features, daily posts, series and special creations is what the gifted compliment is all about or simply put …

 “I really liked what you did here and l really like what you do and l think others will too!”

There is no ‘ceremony or pomp’ attached to these Compliments – there is no call to action to respond – there is no additional tagging, no questions to answer – it is a thankyou for the ‘thang’ that you do and the way that you do it!

However, what is the point to being complimented if you don’t even know that? So, in addition to this published post, l will leave an additional comment on your most recently published post 48 hours after publishing just to say  ‘You have been Complimented’ with a link to this published post in case the notification has landed in your spam or you haven’t seen it.

  3. aw Roy, you made me smile, laugh out loud and cry all with the same post! Thanks for noticing my silliness, and determination…not to mention the fact that I can squeeze that buffalo nickle! Thanks my friend for the compliment!

  5. Hey there, Rory 🙂

    I know some of the people in this list, and it is quite an honor to be part of it! Thank you for the mention, I really appreciate it!! Also this ”happy points” system? It is an awesome idea, and if it wasn’t that I would never have enough time to keep it up to date, I’d wish I’d had it before you 😉

    Have a lovely weekend xx
