The Versatile Blogger Award

“For me, writing is exploration; and most of the time, I'm surprised where the journey takes me” says Jack Dann

I have been blogging for more than a couple of years now and sometimes I still wonder does this make a difference? With so many blogs around, the clutter increases by the day. Do the views on one of those blog count?

And this happened a few weeks ago, when one of my colleague asked me if I was the one who writes blogs? She had stumbled upon it and happened to remember it. This small gesture of hers gave a whole new perspective to my writing. People like her motivate me to keep writing.

And a few days back I was nominated for the versatile blogger award by Anita Menon, my baker friend and a fellow blogger. Anita, I humbly thank you for this honor.

As a part of the nominations, there are a few rules to be followed which can be read here - http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

Without further ado, allow me to share how this works.

In receiving this award, I have been asked to (and the same goes for you) :

  • In a post on your blog, nominate up to 15 more fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
  • In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in this post.
  • Share 7 things about yourself that most people don’t know.
  • In the same post, include this set of rules.
  • Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Seven things that most people don’t know about me:

1. I am bad at remembering roads. I can get lost on my way to home. :P
2. I adjust my chair according to my preferences before sitting. Any chair that has adjustable settings, will be adjusted. Even before sitting in a car, I adjust the seat according to my preference.
3. I love my food spicy. Well, thats kind of half truth. The whole truth is I love food.
4. I love following the superheroes. I would know the history of each character, the background, their superpowers, their weakness, their villains and their style of operating. My favourite vigilante is the Green Arrow.
5. I like to drink a cup of tea before retiring to bed.

6. One of the goals in life is to perform as a stand up comic.
7. I am a workaholic.

My Nominees:

Here are a few bloggers who have touched my life in many defining ways. And for some it may come as a surprise too, as I am generally a silent follower. So, here are my winners :
