Blogger Recognition Award

So, here I stand. I am joyous, and I am touched. I have been honoured by the Blogger Recognition Award in the night, and it’s my very first award, and real lucky for me as within an hour I got another award from another fellow blogger. I am thankful to Shalini Mittal blog for this beautiful award. It is a very nice way to thump the back and lay a hand of encouragement. This is one thing about blogging community I love that each one is helping the other, giving a leg up, promoting, encouraging. I will always remember this gesture as all Firsts are real special. 🙂
Hey ! One more good news, just saw that this same award has been given to me by another humble blogger. I would like to thank my blogger friend dilkiaawazsunoblog who has deemed me worthy of this honour. WOW ! Three awards in one day, and yes, I found this award notification lying in my spam, so make sure to check your spam comments always. I am ecstatic and over the moon. Someday became Today.
RULES
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide the link to the post you created.
I started this blog more as a dare to myself and a friend. Like can I do this, cause I was told I write good enough to influence and must use it to impact and let myself be heard by a wider circle of people? I am not able to believe that some 3 months later, I have it running up and about, and have published almost daily. I have done many experiments to give my reader what they love to read, and I will continue to do so. I have changed several titles and themes before settling for the one that seems perfect and is a reflection of my personality.
Now, coming to advice, I have some things to say, we all do, but I don’t promise you that it’s the best you have heard, but it’s the best I can give.
If you are new to blogging like me, then keep experimenting, don’t hesitate to try something new, you never know what might click with your readers, and you might find your strength. If you are a seasoned blogger than keep doing the good work but every once in a while offer a helping hand to the new babies in the blogging industry. If you are a reader, who plans to open a blog, go for it, find your mojo, give it your best shot and just be true to your reader.
Now for my 15 nominees, I would choose some of my own followers:
  1. flashlight batteries
  2. Stockdale Wolfe
  3. bad Lindsey
  4. verbal seduction Ananya
  5. focusandrefocus2016
  6. frank hub NY
  7. mythsofthemirror
  8. wordpress67675
  9. daughters hero
  10. myldrwithafrenchman
  11. Amor Alegria
  12. seen photography
  13. Kimberly Townsend Palmer
  14. poetry by heart
  15. Hester ley Nel
Thank You so much
Warm Regards
Sakhi:-)

Real Neat Blogger Award

I would firstly like to thank Dear Kitty, who has presented me with this honour, this is my second award, though I can’t call it second technically as I got two awards in the same night, this one just came an hour later. I have recently changed my blog’s theme, and it made my blog look real neat, so it was really thrilling to receive such recognition. I am thankful to dearkitty1 for deeming me worthy of nominations. Someday became Today.
Here are the 7 Questions by me:
  1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?
Most of my visitors find me from the WordPress readers feed.
  1. What is your favourite sport?
My favourite one would be Cricket when it comes to outdoors games.
  1. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2016?
It will be somewhere in March when I felt myself moving out of a mental prison I built around me.
  1. What is your favourite quote?
All Rumi Quotes are my fav, but one among them I love is “What you seek is seeking you “You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do, and that
sight becomes this art.”
  1. What was your favourite class when still at school?
It will be 10th, the cause of one real special teacher I met that year, she was a true teacher, she taught me what power a teacher holds and how she can impact a student’s life if she really cares for her/him. That teaching does not end when school hours are over, and sometimes small guidance matters the most.
  1. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?
Yes, self-defense and French
  1. What musical instrument have you tried to play?
Haha, I tried my luck on the Piano, tried and learned some, but musical instruments aren’t my thing I realised, Drama was, singing was.
My nominees are:
  1. 10000posts
  2. purple dragon
  3. quintessential habit
