On Awards And Other Stories

I feel blessed to be recognised and nominated for four great awards within four days, three for ‘Blog Of  The Year Award’ by the great poet, Sagedoyle whose poems are expertly written and fantastic, the wonderful  Mridula a great writer  and Cristian Minau, whose wonderful posts and pictures takes you on a tour of the world,  they’ve got fantastic blogs do check them out. I was also nominated for ‘The Beautiful Blogger Award’ by the brilliant Natesh, such honour! Thank you guys!!

The “Blog Of The Year” award is different from other awards we might have been given in the past, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Select the blog / blogs you think deserve the “Blog Of The Year” award.

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog / blogs you have chosen. There’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required and ‘present’ them with their award.

3. Please include a link back to this page Blog of the Year 2012 Award and include these rules in your post. Please don’t alter the rules or the badges.

4. Let the blog / blogs you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share rules with them.

5. You can now also join our Facebook group – Click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience .

6. As a winner of the award, please add link back to the blog that presented you with the award, and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar and start collecting start collecting stars!  

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is very different! When you begin you will receive the 1 star award, and every time you are given the award by another blog, you can add another star! In total, you get to collect 6 stars !

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, then you can still give them again and help them to reach the required 6 stars!

On Other Stories:

I want to say I appreciate every support I received from everyone when I battled with severe cold, I am great now and back to work, love you guys for all your cares, we are a big fat family!

And on a lighter note, I didn’t finish my Nanowrimo, I had to stop at 11K due to editorial duties, my office was inundated with an avalanche of work and I couldn’t tear myself into four parts, If I could, I would have written 80K. To all writers who won, congratulations!

Love and Peace Folks!

    You are so kind, including my scribblings here; my shame is redoubled when I confess that I already have awards to recognise and reply to. :oops: I am failing, I’m afraid to discover sufficient hours in my day. Please be patient with me.

  5. Congratulations. I’m a fairly new follower, but I’ve enjoyed every post I’ve read. Glad you’re feeling better too.

  6. Congratulations! You definitely deserve the recognition. I raise my wine glass up to you *cheers*

    My dear friend! Congratulations on a well deserved blog award and congratulations to all those remarkable bloggers who received your nomination. I am truly honoured to be part of this esteemed group. Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into creating an amazing blog with content that delights, challenges and inspires us to look for ways in which to fulfill our personal destinies. I am a baby boomer who is moving on – it is time for the next generation to take the leadership positions. I am amazed by the creativity and genuine concern that I see in people like you who want to seek peaceful solutions. I know that you will press on and make a difference. And I will be applauding from the sidelines.

      Thank you so much for your kind comments, I don’t even know how to reply to this – but I am deeply grateful to have known such wonderful people like you. But I disagree with you entirely on taking the sidelines, I want you with us, don’t move on yet, you’re not 100 are you? Even if you are, that doesn’t make you less important. Thanks for taking time to peruse and leave a glowing comment. God bless you ma’am.
      Love and Peace-:)

    Congratulations! You’re half-way to your six stars and you deserve it. I believe you’ll get them all in no time.
    Thanks! I’m deeply honored by your nomination. I was taken aback (in a good way) when I realized I’m part of your list. Didn’t expect it but really flattered with it. This is a bit different from the other awards I received but equally lovely. Thanks again.
