Time To Say “Thank you!”

Over the past weeks I have been nominated for 4 different awards and can’ t deny they all have come as lovely surprises. It means a lot to me to realize something I’ ve written has been noticed and even enjoyed. I want to thank you sincerely – your blogs, every single post and comment made are my inspirations.
I have always (well, my “always” on blogosphere lasts only for around 5 months) tried my best to follow the rules of awards but this time will make it a bit different. 4 in 1. Balancing in my way a bit the number of bloggers I have to nominate for each award and the questions to be answered/things to be told. Our blogs speak louder than any descriptions, don’ t they?

I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by http://arjungabriel.wordpress.com/ – thank you very much, ArjunGabriel! His blog reveals the world around through many beautiful photos.

The rules that come with accepting this nomination are the following:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post (and put in the logo);
2. Share 7 things about yourself;
3. Nominate 15 or so bloggers you admire;
4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know.

The Reader Appreciation Award was sent to me by http://pommepal.wordpress.com/. Her fascinating blog is of a lifetime of experiences with new explorings continuing. Thank you, Pommepal!

These are the rules for this award:

4. Provide links to these nominated blogs and kindly let the recipients know that they have been nominated;
5. Include the award logo within your blog post.

The Questions:
Your favourite colour? Red and black. Though a radio host once tried to persuade me that black isn’ t a colour.
Your favourite animal? I like tigers a lot but will have to go with a cat. The very particular one – mine.
Your favourite non-alcoholic drink? A cup of green tea always tastes good.
Facebook or Twitter? Hmmm, more of a Facebook person I guess.
Your favourite pattern? Lines, curves and the undescribable ones.
Do you prefer getting or giving presents? Both are such a pleasure. How could it not be?!
Your favourite number? For some reason I think it is 4.
Your favourite day of the week? Wednesday. When the difficult start has passed and the inevitable end still is away.
Your favourite flower? Hyacinth. Fragile and strong at the same time and then the scent…mmmm.
What is your passion? Living and loving.

          So true. When I realized it’ s 4..I knew it was definitely time to work on mine. Changed the rules a bit, yes but really wanted to thank them.

  2. Hey Esenga! I was totally busy with the internals conducted on last week, so that I was unable to update the post about, “Wonderful Team Member Readership Award” for which I had been nominated by you. But when I went through the award rules, I have seen that the update for this award must be done within 7 days after accepting the nomination. What shall I do? 🙂

    1. It’ s nice to see you back, Rahul! I hope being much inspired and creative to…create. 🙂
      I would say not to worry about those 7 days and just go ahead. To be honest, I also missed “the deadline” but still wanted to pass it on to wonderful fellow bloggers.
      And…you are very welcome – my pleasure! 🙂
