Recently, Rads, of the Rads Blog-a-Zine fame, gave me a blogger friendship award!!And frankly all I can say is, thanks a bunch!!....muchas gracias señora!!!...Truly much obliged.
All I can say, is that discovering blogging has been one of the most self gratifying things for me, and frankly I never knew that I could have the potential to write consistently for so long!
Frankly it has taken me by surprise.
On another note....I just realised how wonderful life can seem, and how well you can get your confidence boosted when people begin to appreciate you for the things you do best.
Blogging seems to be an excellent platform, where you can speak your mind out, without any insecurities attached.
The thing is...frankly none of my friends here and back in India (save a few)....care much about blogs and blogging. So for me initially when I started I felt singled out in the crowd being the misfit that I am.
But as the comments and followers started increasing...I felt such a great morale boost, because finally being acknowledge by someone is a great feeling.
Its not very often that people are fortunate enough to belong to a crowd that appreciates you for who you are and what you do. But nevertheless, blogging has done just that!!!
Hence as a solemn moment of gratitude to my fellow blogging buddies, who have helped shape my blog and egged me on to keep writing, I would thus like to thank,
Rads: For presenting me with this award!!...makes one feel all the more worthwhile.
Viyoma: For introducing me to blogging
Biju: For being one of the first ones to comment and follow my blog.
Shadowthrone: For being such a dedicated follower, and always being there for no matter what I Post.
Choco: For her dedicated comments and her personalised style of writing.
Kadambari: For being a thoughtful writer, who is almost as introsepective as I am at times.
Kaddu: For appreciating my blog right away, and being supportive of whatever I write.
Ramya: For speaking her mind, when it comes to whatever I write.
Sandhya: For being such an ardent follower, so as to actually read though all the posts I wrote when I first started the blog. Totally appreciate the encouragement. Just what the doctor ordered.
Sammy: For appreciating my writing, and being such a dedicated blogger himself.
AS & Todayswriter: Fellow bloggers and good friends who live one floor above mine.
Brocasarea: Being a fellow medical blogger, keeping me in touch with the internship scene in India.
And a special word of thanks to Varun, SSQuo, et and Aquarius, who have recently come across my blog, and commented on my posts.
Its always a pleasure to write for a dedicated audience!!.
As they say in Russian, Spasiba Vam Bolshoi! (roughly translated as..Thanks a lot!!!)
PS: My next post is going to be a tag. I have been tagged by Brocasarea and Todayswriter(long back), so bear with me while I manage to sum up things about yours truly!!
