Liebster Award

I was nominated earlier today by Jahnavi for the Liebster Award. Jahnavi is the author of self-help ebook, Ctrl+Alt+Del and has been interviewed previously on this blog. It is an honour to be nominated by her. Thank you so much, Jahnavi!


The Rules:

  • Once you are nominated for this Award, make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
  • Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too.
  • Nominate 5 -10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you.
  • Lastly, COPY these rules in the post.

Here are the answers to the questions that Jahnavi asked:

How do you get the motivation to blog regularly?

I did blog regularly until I joined work – I wrote at least two posts every week until then. Since coming to Bangalore the frequency has decreased, but yes, I do keep coming back to the blog from time to time to share the thoughts on my mind. It is one thing that has remained the same, even though my offline life has changed drastically since October. So, the blog feels like home.

What is one thing that you like the most about blogging?

It is actually a combination of two things: the urge to write and the urge to be part of a community. It feels good to be connected to people from different parts of the world via this medium.

Approximately how many hours do you spend on blogging daily?

If I do blog, I try to make the most of it. I read the blogposts on my Reader, or write something. But that is not on a daily basis, it is as and when I get time to blog.

What do you aim to achieve from your blog?

When I started the blog, it was meant as a platform for me as an author. Having spent quite a few months blogging, that primary goal has changed. Now, I blog mainly because I want to write and share something that’s on my mind. I enjoy the interaction that I have with my Readers. It is great to be connected to them.

Based on your experience, what advice do you give to a budding blogger?

Blog because you want to, not because you have to. It is more fun that way.

My Nominees:







Here are a few questions that I’d love my nominees to answer:

  1. If you had the power to change on thing in this world, what would that be?
  2. Which colour best describes you?
  3. What is the funniest joke that you’ve heard?

I’m looking forward to your responses, but if you have a No Award Policy or feel that this is not the right time for you, that is fine too.

Have fun, guys! So long!

The No Strings Attached Award — Nominated! Hurray!

I am honoured to be nominated by Nimi¬†for ‘The No Strings Attached’ award. I truly enjoy reading her blog and have had the good fortune to host her as a guest in my blog¬†earlier this month in Saturday Specials. Thank you so much Nimi for considering me worthy for the nomination. This is my first ever award nomination on WordPress, and indeed a blessed moment.


The No Strings Attached was designed on Alfreds Almanac. Details about the award are available here.

There are no rules to accepting this award. You can choose to display your award on your blog home page. If you do this, you do not need to nominate any other bloggers, unless you wish to do so. You can thank the blogger that awarded you. You have the power to do whatever you want with this award. Once you have been nominated for it, you can then pass it on to others.

The No Strings Attached Award, is an acknowledgement of respect from one blogger, to another. If you are given this award, it means that a fellow blogger likes your work and your blog.
