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 !!

IT’S TIME 2 PASS ON THE — “HONOUR” : )

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.

VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD :

VBA

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 .
