HIYA! I feel like I've written to you after ages. Even checked the last time when I actually wrote something for the blog. Turns out it was back in early August. Sheesh! *Cue major guilt pangs.* Okay, on to more interesting things. Firstly, let's pop that champagne. I reached the milestone of 500 followers. A shoutout to Mariwritings for being my 500th reader. Humbled and honoured at the love!  Shall be actively returning some of that now that my novel is nearing completion. 

Yup, it's that time again when I count my blessings and express gratitude to you, my Dear Readers. The Wordpress blog is now 400+ Followers strong and the Facebook Page has over a 100 Likes. I am delirious with happiness and am dancing like there's no tomorrow. Please do join in as this achievement is because of you - your comments, likes, feedback, criticisms and of course, most importantly your encouragement and support. So  THANK YOU!

It's Valentine's Day and love's in the air all around. So, personally wishing each and everyone one of my readers and followers a very Happy Valentine's Day! valentines-36443_640.png This Valentine's Day is special to me. Nope, not because I've found Mr. Right. No such luck, so far! But because I have found you. Yes, Dear Reader. YOU! The below poem is dedicated to each and every one of you.

200+ Followers!200 followers YAYY!!!! Tak Dhin-a-dhin dhin-a-dhin tak dhin-a-dhin! Ooo La La La... heeeeeyaaaaaa! tamamatamamam ...aaaaaaaaaeeeeeeeee....... (standing up on the table, dancing like a crazed maniac!) So, now that the jig is over, getting down to business. I would like to thank God, my parents, Jadoo, my readers, Blogger's World, Blogging U., my writing desk (it's brand new, by the way), my laptop (old but as good as new), my fingers, my coffee mug, my phone (it's broken! someone gift me a new one), my diary, my floor lamp, my hair dresser, my manicurist, my gardener...... (starts dancing again) Wait, do I even have a gardener?! Who did I just thank?! Aah... that reminds me... Thank those who awarded me. Get down to business.

It's early morning, and upon waking up I  discover that I have just received an award - my 10th in the past 10 days! YAHOOO! YIPEE! YAY!! There is something about awards that makes me super excited. :) But, after a few moments of cheering and dancing, I start to ponder.
They say if someone hates you, you must be doing something right! So if you don't have haters or have a lot of people who like you, you're doing something wrong??
Oh, what am I supposed to do now?!

Yesterday, I received a pleasant surprise from a wonderful fellow blogger, Flight & Scarlet. She had apparently nominated me (alongwith someother amazing bloggers) for this award called Sunshine Blogger Award. sunshine-blogger-award1.jpg I would like to very humbly accept the award and thank FlightScarlet for liking my writing and giving me this form of praise. It does indeed mean a lot to me. She has put a few questions to me which i shall answer now -

Georgia at Books And Other Miracles (BookLoverFob) has very kindly nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award. And, though I am thrilled to accept the award, I must admit that I am at a loss to understand what this award is for. So, I will simply take it at its literal meaning and assume that my blog is neat and as real as it can get. (Really?!) She is a book lover and her book reviews are a must read. also, not to mention her giving me this very unusual award.  Thank you so much, Georgia!
