Liebster award 2018

I got nominated for the Liebster Award 2018!

I cannot believe my luck. I was nominated for the Liebster Award 2018 by the very sweet Marina Wang, an Aries who blogs about travel, fashion, and lifestyle at Wait Marina Who.ย 

Since my blogs are both just a few months old, and I’ve never been nominated for any kind of blogging-related award before, I am rather thrilled at this. The world out there is full of super-talented bloggers/writers doing amazing things. I hope I can also take my blogs to similar levels someday. So this nomination has really been the motivation I sorely needed. Thank you so much, Marina!

About the award: Liebster is a fun way to recognize and support upcoming blogs, increase your audience and also get to know some fellow bloggers around the world.

Rules for the Liebster Award 2018:

  1. Thank the blogger that nominated you, and link back to their blog (dofollow link, not nofollow).
  2. Pay it forward by nominating in turn 5-10 new bloggers that you appreciate. Of course, leave a message or comment for them to know they’ve been nominated!
  3. Answer the questions given to you, and write some of your own for your nominees to answer.
  4. Link your Liebster Award 2018 post to this post by the Global Aussie, and leave your blog post link in the comments section of this same post.

 

Here are my replies to the questions that Marina asked:

Use five adjectives to describe your blog.
Interesting, passionate, friendly, curious, mad (about travel)

Your favorite city in the world?
Impossible to name just one…but if I had to pick just one to revisit it would probably be New York City.

Where are you from and where are you currently living?
I’m rootless ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad was in the army so we moved around a lot. They’ve finally settled in New Delhi and I live close by in Gurgaon, where work is.

Three best things about the city you currently reside?
a. Some of my closest friends live here too
b. There are lots of cute cafes around Gurgaon where I can sit quietly with a coffee and a book.
c. Lots of shopping around, if that’s your thing.

Your goals in 2018?
Get healthy. Write more.

Your favorite TV show?
A toss-up between The Big Bang, Gray’s Anatomy and CSI. Yep, I have eclectic tastes!

How did you come up with your blog name?
It was the title of an essay I wrote about myself in my diary many years ago ๐Ÿ™‚

Where do you get most of your blog inspirations from?
I blog about places I’ve visited and food I’ve loved, so you could say that my blog inspirations mostly come from own life experiences.

2. What made you start blogging, and what kept you going?

3. If you could get a wish today, what would you ask for? This isn’t Ms. Universe so it’s fine if you don’t pick world peace ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

4. Imagine your Twitter account as a person. Now, describe him/her using one sentence.

5. If you weren’t a blogger, what would you be?

6. Describe yourself using only words that start with the first letter of your name!

7. If x is the average (arithmetic mean) of m and 9, y is the average of 2m and 15, and z is the average of 3m and 18, what is the average of x, y, and z in terms of m?

Lol just kidding, that last one was just for fun. You only need to answer the top 6 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hope you enjoy answering these questions as much as I enjoyed thinking them up. I will look forward to reading your posts in turn. Don’t forget to comment here to let me know when your own post goes live!

 

 

 

Why I write

Why I Write

Why I write? I write because I feel. Because somewhere inside me are a million thoughts waiting to find expression. And a hundred stories hoping to be told. Writing gives me a voice.

I write because to an introvert like me itโ€™s the most natural way of self-expression. ย And a way to reach out and seek connection with those who think the same way. Or those who think differently.

I write so that I can have a record with me, of all the wonderful and surprising and disappointing and unforgettable and heart-breaking moments I have experienced. To look back at life whenever I wish to, without having to rely just on a fading memory, is why I write.

Another reason why I write is the rush of seeing something I wrote, actually getting published and appreciated. Acknowledged and understood. Shared. I have so much to write about, that I actually have two completely different blogs!

I write because I know how much I need to improve my writing skills. Because practise is the only thing that can get me there.

I write, also, because it centres me. In that sense, in almost every sense, I write for myself.
