THE LIEBSTER AWARD, blogger award, award nomination
I am nominated, now what?
It is always nice to be appreciated and get a pet in the back for your efforts. Getting nominated by other amazing bloggers is one way of getting such appreciation. I was nominated twice for The Liebster Award and that makes me twice happy! My sincere gratitude goes to both of the two wonderful bloggers for nominating my blog.

The first nomination came from a fellow blogger Saorsa. Saorsa is a unique and beautiful name which means freedom or liberty. It is a very interesting blog that comes up with various thought provoking posts written in the most witty manner. The link to Saorsa’s blog is here

The second nomination came from another fellow blogger A Guy Called Bloke. This blog is full of interesting stories, poetry and different posts written very beautifully on life, journey, spirituality and what not. The link to A Guy Called Bloke’s blog is here.

Why am I passionate about blogging?

Why am I passionate about blogging?
For the love of sharing?

When I started blogging I didn’t know what exactly I was looking for. As I started sharing and publishing blog posts, it made me think about myself and my life. Blogging has helped me bring out my own thoughts in a much more structured way. It’s given me new perspectives and understanding of life.

Another great thing about blogging is that you get to connect with like minded people from all over the world. Exchanging thoughts and feedback from other wonderful bloggers is motivating and also helps in mutual growth.

If all the above reasons are not enough for being passionate about blogging, then I can give you one more. You get to learn so much every day from blog design & theme to content & SEO. There is a lot to learn from & about blogging and I’m most passionate about learning.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind and sweet note you wrote for me, I’m touched by your kindness. I thought my name had only one meaning, I know the other meaning and all because of you. Thank you! Your answers were more than interesting, they have spiritual depth and inspiration. Also, my current favorite quote is by you, “The shadow thinks it is moving, but it is the light that moves the shadow…”
