First Blogging Anniversary and Some Awards!

Wow! It has been a year that I have blogged, and still doing it, and, to speak the truth, it feels good, really good. Blogosphere has become as important a part of my life as the atmosphere (do I make any sense here, ha, ha… I’m just writing it because Blogosphere and Atmosphere rhymes).

Dear fellow-bloggers, you can’t imagine how thankful I am to you all. There can be no one as thankful as I am, really. You have liked my post, commented on them. I know, some of you have a super busy life, yet you took some time out to read my silly stuff. Thank you is too small a word to express my appreciation. Yet, here is my big THANK YOU.

Well, we have gazillion of talented people in here. WordPress is a wonderful platform where so many people, from near and far, come together and share views and opinions. The creator of WordPress has done a terrific work. The team member at WordPress is doing a marvelous job. Kudos!

So far, I’ve enjoyed reading, and possibly will keep enjoying in the future as well, what others write. Ever since I started blogging, I must say this, my learning has gone up. I think there can be nothing more rewarding than this.

I admire some bloggers, I really do. The way they write is simply astounding. And I regularly visit their blogs and read their stuff. I won’t name who the bloggers are, that would be discriminating, I suppose.

It is a fact that learning never ends, the more we learn the more there is to learn, no matter how learned we are, we must keep learning. But be careful, learning can be negative as well. We have to evade the negative learning and chose a better life by grasping the positive things that life has to offer. (Damn it! Why am I sounding so preachy?)

Alright, it is time that I thank some people who have nominated me for some handsome awards. How kind you are that you think I deserve such awards!

To go with, first I have the Liebster Award. Gwen Bristol bestowed me with this award. She writes on writing and some other stuff, which you should see for yourself. Do read her posts; they are all interesting to read. Take my word for it.liebst3

I have two more awards. Ah, what a lucky person I am! Allwin Bright thought that I am worthy of Versatile Blogger Award and Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Allwin writes very beautifully, though he is very modest to admit that. But I tell you, he really does. Do read his posts.  Very Inspiring blogging awardversatileblogger

I know there are some rules about the awards which I have to follow. But, rules are made to be broken. Ha-ha!  I’m sorry I’m not abiding by the rules. Actually, many people have nominated me for numerous awards in the past, but I was not much into the award things so I didn’t respond. This must not be taken as an insult, however. I’m grateful to all those who nominated me for such awards.

Now That I’m Super Sweet!

The crow is no longer cawing and nothing disturbs me of the calmness I’m feeling now.  A flock of sparrows have gracefully taken over the place of the crows and are comfortably perched high in the trees, and some have made themselves at ease on the rope that is tied from one pole to the other of my balcony where I dry my wet cloths. Even the mynas are getting closer to me.

How different are the sparrows from the crows! The chirping of the sparrows are sweeter than any human voice, and though these mynas have not learnt to imitate human voice, though have not been taught to do so, but their wild utterance is just music to my ears. Even though I don’t understand the bird’s language, and I can’t exactly tell what they mean, but their agile movement and their proximity to me means something special to me and I feel good about it, I can deduce they are happy and I see no reason to be sad.

Now, my dog comes to me waving his tail to indicate his happiness, and he licks my toe showing love and I caress his fluffy-haired body. I say Jump and he jumps without a question, how loyal!

The breezy air brings some beautiful thought to my mind, and I can only say that this is a beautiful world surrounded by sweet people. I believe, I’m also a sweet person – wait a moment, it’s not just sweet; I’m super sweet – among all the other super-duper sweet people.

Thank you, ‘Raven’s Witch’ for nominating me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. You are marvelous! and so is your blog. All my dear fellow blogger, please, do stop by her blog, she is a beautiful woman, her brown beautiful eyes have that absorbed look of rapt delight, and her shiny golden hair is a bonus to her beauty. She writes some really interesting stuff.

Now, some rules that you have to follow in case you get nominated for this award and are mentioned below:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you for the award

So, now, lemme answer the five super sweet questions:

  • What is your favorite sweet treat?

I accept anything sweet that comes to me for free 😀

  •        When do you crave sweet things the most?
