04 Jan Thank You, Dear Readers + Awards
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.
So, here goes –
- I have a major sweet tooth.
- I tried cutting my eye-lashes when I was very young.
- I have won a few awards, during the course of my 10-year Sales career.
- Swimming is my favourite form of exercise.
- I got my first car before I learnt driving.
- My secret ambition is to be an actress.
- I am the best Counsellor or Agony Aunt you could find, free of cost. If only I charged a fee for my advice! Or, even took my own advice!
Received nominations for the Real Neat Blog Award from Blogmaniac and Expressive Human and Sunshine Blogger Award from Blabberwockying! and Expressive Human again.
Two Are Better Than One nominated me for the Liebster Award, and asked me a whole list of questions. However, as this post is already going to be a long one, I’ll just pick up a few and answer those. (Forgive me, Michelle)
- What are your blogging goals for 2016?
Wait for a separate post on that! 😉
- What do you want readers to takeaway from your website or blog?
A little bit of laughter, a little bit of fun, and loads of good reading. 🙂
- Why do you like to write?
Because it helps me express my thoughts and feelings freely. Or, maybe because I talk too much and listening isn’t enough. Or is it really, that the voices in my head are talking. Who are they, anyway?!
- Do you have any advice for someone who is considering to start a website or blog?
Considering I myself am very new at this, and not really in a position to offer advice, I will just pass on what ever advice I have received from the experts/veterans. Write. Write, and Write. And Network. And Read. And Write.
Much love and thanks to all those who considered my mad-cap writing and my nonsensical blog worthy of these honours. (starts dancing again)
My vision is now quite blurry from all the happy tears. I think I may need to stop for a break before I can continue again. (breaks into a dance)
I would like to pass on each of these awards to the following blogs –
Sunshine Blogger Award
Because each of these blogs spread sunshine in Blogosphere, and particularly in my life, just by their presence.
Real Neat Blog Award
These blogs are super fun to read and also a great source of learning (even for someone as obstinate as me!) for me and would be for you too, I am sure.
Anand’s Parodies & Caricatures – Free yourself from all your worries. Anything he says is sure to make you smile.
Love the recipes, Bhaili, keep them coming! 🙂
Two Are Better Than One
Michelle’s been in the inside of the cockpit of an F-117A!
Versatile Blogger Award
Because as the name suggests their writing is versatile and refreshing.
And may I add, a very good one too!
in cahoots with muddy boots
Trust me, this blog has nothing to do with messy cats. A must read if you are fond of cooking, nature or… anything beautiful, really!
New blogs that have created an impact in the blogging world. Definitely, must read!
Sometimes a simple blog with everyday stories told beautifully are all you need to uplift your mood!
Dragon’s Loyalty Award
Because readers as loyal as them definitely deserved an award just for their love, support and encouragement, and their resilience at withstanding the regular onslaught of madness that this blog (and blogger) spews forth.
Amazing travel tales, accompanied with lovely photographs.
ametalk Thanks, Neerja! For being such an “ardent follower” 🙂
The Turtle Way Sending you turtle hugs!
justmeplease.com Yet another amazing travel blog, you must check out!
That Mom-Wife Life
Apologies for causing you disappointment, Marielli. I promise to more than make up for it soon 🙂 (Psst… Look out for the new features, it is sure to cheer you up 😉 )
To all my 1100+ visitors/readers and 200+ followers who keep coming back to my blog.
With this, this blog is now award-free and any new awards I receive would be passed on (unaccepted) to others.
My apologies if I have missed out on giving you an award. Please know that I intended to but with all the dancing, my brain has displaced itself and now I suffer from memory loss. Huh? What? Who am I? Where am I? Who are you? Oh, Sorry, I do know who you are. The most important part of my blog – my precious and most valued reader. That’s all I remember actually. Psst…Are you convinced or should I repeat? Huh? What? ….. Uh Oh…. Ok, I’m outta here!
Congratulations to all my award winners.
Thank you to all my readers for all your love and support. It’s what makes Wandering Soul what it is. Keep it coming!
And, now with the music turned up full blast, the party just started. Please join in the fun. (starts dancing again, brain dislodges itself completely and is now dancing alongside.)
Hi! Who are you? (oh well, that’s material for another post! 😉 )
