Awards' Night

Last week I was delighted with the number of comments my post got, this week I’m overjoyed by the fact that I won 'Awards' for my blog.

Renu has very kindly awarded me the
"Brillante Weblog Award".
"This is given to sites and blogs that are smart and brilliant both in their content and their design"

Since the design of my blog site is nothing much to write home about, I assume she thinks the contents of my blog are worth a glance which ofcourse I take as a HUGE compliment.

So going by the rules I’d like to present this award to.....

Agnes: A globe-trotter, who has a very interesting site with details of her travels & humanitarian works, just like how it is.

Bins: Yeah, she’s been inactive for the past 2 months. But when she writes she puts her heart into it. Bins, get back into the groove & kick some butt.

ISH: I simply adore the way she writes but wish she’d post more often. I also love her ‘moods’ button:-D

Prashanth: An intense blogger who covers all view-points, that as a commentor I'm often lost for words. The quotes he puts up for each subject are excellent.

Preethi: An avid blogger who has started working recently, as a result of which her blog is suffering. A terrific sense of humour coupled with intensive research about her blog subjects makes her a very interesting blogger.

Wannabe: I enjoy her easy style of writing. And her site & layout are totally eye-catching. I only wish she’d post more often.

Winnie the Poohi: She is totally technology savvy & one can see all sorts of interesting gadgets at her site. Not the least, a very interesting story-teller with a poetic bend.

Now the rules are:
1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back.
2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brillante Weblog'.
4. Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize(optional).
5. And pass it on!

Once again I stress this is totally SPECIAL coz it’s my First Award……….

Now some of the people reading this might just think with an eyebrow raised “why, she’s acting like she’s going to keep getting them awards all the time”……..

…..ahem, I just received another Award from Winnie the Poohi

“The Bloggers Friends Forever Award”

And the Award goes to:

Anjuli: We met over a death post but I’d like to think a friendship was born.

Balvinder Singh: I know you’ll be surprised by this award coz we’ve known each other for just a short while but your blog & its contents brings a patriotic feeling within me.

Lan: U & I share a love for reading. While you actively pursue it, I stand afar & admire you for the same.

Renu: Met you quite by chance over a post on Gulab Jamun tips. I tried it out & it came out awesome. Boyyyy, am I glad I commented:-D. Just imagine, I could have missed my 1st award.

Sunshine from Singapore: You are special coz you are my first lurker who delurked. I sorta felt like a celebrity for sometime:-D

& a special for

Sunshine from India: You came out of nowhere & loyally commented on all my posts. Just as suddenly you disappeared. Come back soon…this award awaits u.

And here are the rules for the Blogging Friends Forever Award:

2. Put a link to the person you received the award from.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.

    I actually read less than 7 blogs but I'll figure out a way to do it...

    Is your daughter sleeping better?

  11. First I must say CONGRATULATIONS for both your awards!!! You certainly deserve them both.

    Second- thanks for mine- now I have to figure out how to get the award up on the page :)...I'm a bit technologically challenged.

    Third, I've so enjoyed your blog- and I'm glad we 'got to know each other.' and are continuing to know more of each other.

  12. I finally was able to figure out how to load the award and name my nominees :)....I'm not very good at this stuff- and for some reason my computer was not being cooperative.

    Now I am under pressure to perform. I am going to have to figure out a lot of things now. My prayer for the moment is that whatever I try on my blog page should just magically materialise. :D

    I am just a computer guggu and find myself usually going around in circles ans also since I am strapped on free time, it is an endless struggle.

  17. there is one more for you...from me!!

  18. piper: Thank U:-))

    Agnes: "Pretty lady"
    Huh, Nancy turns around to chk whether Agnes is really directing the comment at her;-o or at somebody standing behind her.

    lan: My pleasure:-)

    bins: I really want u to pen ur thoughts down.
    U must take the time out....try harder.
    Not knowing how the options is not really an excuse:-|
