Was supposed to blog about this on Sunday, but there was a sudden water crisis in our building (a major one!)... so I couldn't get time to compile the list of blogs I read and their corresponding links.
Well... "yours truly" has been awarded with the "Blogger Friendship Award 2009"! :-D
The very first award for my blog! I often saw various cute little Award Badges on other people's blogs -- especially people from the U.S. -- and I always wondered how & from where do they get all these awards! Now I know! :-p
And you know the best part of this -- not one, not two, but THREE fellow bloggers have bestowed this honour on me, within a period of 3 days! Thanks Kadambari, preposterous girl and Vyazz! :-D
I sure am glad I submitted my blog for the Bloggers Choice Awards! I may or may not win that Award, but I sure have won a lot of new friends because of it! And I must also add here, it's mostly because of Kadambari that I got to know of the so many new widgets & stuff for Google blogs! I always thought only Wordpress users could have such cool stuff on their blogs! :-p
So now... it's my turn to pass on this Award to my Blogger friends! And, I have been told, there are no limitations regarding who I give this Award to! So I'll first start with my "Old is Gold" group of friends! Even though some of them don't really blog/comment much these days, I still want to give them this Award because they are the ones who laid the foundation, you know! So...
Neelabh - For introducing me to the world of blogging. His was the very first blog I got to know of! In fact, it was also my first encounter with the term "blog"!
Vatsap - A real blogging pro... an artist! He blogs from the heart... honestly & genuinely! And oh, I love his "shitoons"! :-D
Mahesh - For being my very first "follower" you can say! Even after 2.5 years, he's still "going strong" with my blog! :-D (Oh btw, I love some of his poems on his old blog @ rediff!)
Shreesh - Ha ha ha! One of the most erratic bloggers' around! :-D All the philosophical content you see on this blog, he's the one responsible for planting the seeds to them within me! :-D
Rahbin - She's so often a medium through which my angels & guides communicate with me! I hope she finds time to get back to blogging soon!
Jacob - I always love reading his insightful posts & wait eagerly every morning for his daily dose of "Inspiring to Live" series in my inbox! :-D
Abhiroop - Not really an "old" blogger friend, but since he has taken the effort to go through most of my old posts AND comment on them too, I consider him as part of the veterans here now! :-D
And now for the new community I have found here in the last couple of weeks! It's amazing the way you guys have accepted me in your circle so instantaneously and so warmly!
Kadambari (of Spirals) - Well, reasons already mentioned above... & besides, like you said, we're both named Kadambari! ;-)
DayDreamer - For his shameless flirting from Day One ;-) and for teaching me how to get this signature on my blog posts! Naughty, but sensitive soul!
Sumit - Love the way his posts/comments are always tinged with a subtle sense of humour! ;-)
Vyazz - Very thought-provoking!
Mukund, et, preposterous girl, Tangerine, colors, Dhiman, Blog Gore & Dreaming Eyes - For joining in the discussions here & appreciating my writing. I hope to read more about you guys in future! :-)
Shloke - For his unique gift of "Bheja-Frying", which he loved to practice on me while he was here in Patna! And now he's recently joined the blogging world as well... hope you stick around kid!
Nikita - Definitely psyched & majorly demented! Love reading her posts!
Musings of An Unknown Indian - For putting me through endless moments of agony & mental torture at not having been able to solve the mystery of the seemingly "dead link" in my 'follower' widget!
So there… I'm sure I must have missed out on a lot of names! But it's kinda tough to relate all the so many new IDs with the so many new blogs I have got acquainted with recently! I guess that's how a newly-wed bride feels when she's suddenly introduced to the entire extended family of the groom! LOL! Does that mean I'm married to my blog? Nooooooooooo! pleaaaaaasssseeeee! :-p
