Vintage Sapience was honoured with the One Lovely Blog Award by none other than David from Chape Personal Trainer. I cannot thank him enough for being such a friendly, supportive person. He was one of my very first friends on the unknown blogosphere and I’m proud to say that it has been amazing since then. Thank you, David! 😀
When my friend Vikram from Blogmaniac nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award, I was pretty happy 😀 Then I read what it stands for, and I was over the moon! This award is given to those who are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers. It is such an honor to receive!
Who brings sunshine into your day? Let me know in the comments below. It doesn’t have to be a blogger!
Vikram has an amazing, inspirational blog himself. The 13-word stories are my favorite while the regular philosophical posts make you happier and optimistic about life. It is such fun to be nominated by an excellent blogger as him.
- Thank the person that nominated you
- Answer the questions from the person that nominated you
- Nominate some other bloggers for this award
- Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you have nominated
- Notify the bloggers you have nominated.
My Answers to his questions:
Q: What if WordPress disappears next morning?
As a fairly new blogger, I would honestly freak out. This is my creative release and if I didn’t have this, I would become really cranky. Not getting to read the articles from the other bloggers would also be terrible because I learn so much every day.
Q: What comes to your mind when I say, God?
A positive, all-encompassing entity, who/which has infinite wisdom, power and omnipotence. Strangely, I don’t see a face, just light.
Q: What keeps you motivated?
Knowing that everything happens for a reason and that it will all fall into place, even if it seems horrid at that moment.
Q: What do you expect from your readers?
Oh, I don’t expect anything but I would love for them to keep commenting, with their suggestions. It helps me know that I have someone who thinks my writing is worth something. That is what is so amazing about WordPress that we have like-minded people as a community actually interested in each other’s work.
Q: Which is your favorite tv show?
Q: What makes you angry?
Incompetent people in your team who decide to not work at all. That makes me furious.
Q: Tell two things about your country you dislike most?
Well, the Indian mindset about certain things is definitely a bummer. Also, the lack of hygiene in the rural areas. I really would like for that to improve.
Q: Tell two things which you did this new year and you will remember them throughout the whole year?
I actually started writing more this year. I am glad that I could because I hadn’t done that for a long time. Also, I am reading books more.
Q: Are you a competitor or a cooperative?
Cooperative, I believe.
Q: Who is your favorite author?
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, no doubt. He created Sherlock Holmes and I am obsessed with him and now have all his works.
Here are my nominees for the Award:

I am finally getting down to the numerous award posts that were pending forever! If there ever were an award for procrastination, I would definitely get THAT one. 😛
David nominated me for this award ages ago. And he would laugh out loud if he realised I delayed it by this much. The perfectionist in me didn’t want to do a random quickie post. At Chape Personal Trainer, he is dishing out cool music playlists ideal for your regular workouts. If you’re a lazy bum like me (especially lazy at exercising), his tips will really help you get off your comfy couch. And a good beginning is ideal. Definitely check him out for his awesome posts and really friendly blog.
Without further ado, here are the rules:
- I know you are Awesome, tell us why.
- You are my friends and tell us about others.
- Be creative. It’s alright if you can’t be.
- I give no questions to be fully answered but let yourself go here. Thank you.
Why am I awesome? Because I am a good, patient human being. Not to sound quite full of myself but these awards make me feel really awesome. They are a validation of my work and all the likes and comments from fellow bloggers makes me feel extra special.
Everyone I have met on this virtual space has turned out to be really helpful. It is a miracle that a keyboard, an empty tex for everything we can write, gives us the freedom to be ourselves. I have noticed people are a lot happier, and more interactive here than in the real world. You, my readers, ARE my friends!
I am creative. I write and I draw! I am no Picasso but some of my funny drawings turn out just fine. Here is one of them now:
I further nominate the following bloggers:
A lot of you will be nominated in the upcoming award posts 🙂
