5 years on WP


58 BLOGS ,


1000 + LIKES,



And Visitors / Viewers across the Globe !!

Well, it was great to see a CONGRATS message for my 5th Anniversery on WORDPRESS. Five years of association, it has to be overwhelming but in actual I had a mixed reaction on reading it.

I am really grateful for the platform that WordPress provided me, and equally thankful to all my WordPress buddies here whose constant support, comments , appreciations and criticisms have helped in crafting out a better writer out of me. The regular interaction & sharing of thoughts have given a new direction to my thinking and have kept my spirits high , provoking me to write more and more. These 5 years of journey has been inspiring and enjoyable except the last lap, where I started facing the most terrible phase of “Writer’s Block”.

But, the Anniversery notification from WordPress did it’s part, igniting my sleeping brain & instructing it to get up. On this 5th Anniversery, all I want is to continue my association for many more years to come. So, its time to write, time to interact, time to expand my circle on WordPress & I am sure I WILL DO IT !!



Well, I was overwhelmed last week when I was awarded Versatile Blogger Award by a great blogger Maryam & thereafter, I was honoured with Illuminating Blogger Award by another great person , Otrazheine. It had been really pleasing to know that my words make so much sense & worth getting these awards. And now, its time for me to recognize the talent and pass on these special awards to few special bloggers here on WordPress.



So, before announcing the awards…let’s have a look at “RULE Book of VBA”:

When you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Now, let me start following my rules now 🙂

– Thanks a ton to “Maryam” for awarding me my first ever award on WordPress. It had been a pleasure for me. And, now my few words about “Maryam” & her blogs- She infact is “versatile” herself and the bandwidth ranges from poems, photographs, food everthing. Her posts revolves around every big & small thing in our day to day life & her thoughts… they are presented in such a lucid, short, simple & ofcourse beautiful manner that you will just love reading her stuff. Its a humble request to all my nominees here to have a look at Maryam’s posts as well.

– Then comes 7 things about myself:

1) I like thinking & exploring.. myself & my surroundings.
2) I like putting my thoughts in words.
3) Being an engineer by profession, I try putting logic also.. though its not always possible.
4) Likes reading books, blogs everything.
5) Believes that the world can change if what we think changes.
6) Believes that I learn everyday, I grow everyday , so I try to find something in everything.
7) Believes that words can do miracles.. if we know how to present them .
