For the last few months, I was quietly sitting in my corner, blogging away about mundane incidents and occasionally rhyming my way, when bang – I get hit by comments from everywhere.
It was the most exciting day for this blog. Jingle introduced me to her readers, who were mostly poets. Their comments where overwhelming. For the first time, there were a bunch of poets reading and appreciating my work. Until then, there was only one online poet, slpmartin, that I could read or learn from. It was pay-day when I found so many poets who were really good at their writing.
Kavita’s writing stopped me in my tracks. Here was someone who was great at writing, exceptionally cheerful and one of the few who can actually make me laugh with her writing.
I’m too busy trying to balance work-life-blog and can hardly find time to squeeze in surfing time. Kavita not only finds time to read my stuff, but she likes it so much that she wants to give me an award!
Coming from her, a beautiful writer, I knew this was a proud moment. Her comment was the first thing I saw today and she wanted to give me an award – WoW! and then clicking on that link took me to her post.
It was pink. Pink! No offence ladies but I hate that color, I never left a chance to ridicule guys who wear pink. One of my favorite targets is my bro.
There I was, wondering if I could shade it another color and then I read Kavita’s comment. I couldn’t help but smile:-). She understood that this was un-manly, but still passed it on.
I humbly accept!
There are few extra things required along with my acceptance. I will try to satisfy as best as I can
1) Thank You KAVITA
2) Things to share about me, this post is best place to start and then you can read my 8 lines.
3) The rules state that I have to forward this award. In my short blogging history, I only really know/follow 2-3 bloggers , and almost all (Kavita) already have this award.
But I know one person to give this award.
She is a She 🙂
She is an excellent poet and good friend of slpmartin – one of the best poets I know online.
And her blog is completely in pink!!
She is Jade
Not just a pink award
If you think this is a simple image of pink roses, you are wrong. It represents much more. I found some time to understand this award and just into 2 levels (links) deep, I found two individuals who know their craft – writing.
Lisa – She is a published writer with a simple, yet well-written blog. One post actually talks about the virtues of the color pink. Almost convinced me 😉 But she does have a point.
Ollin – A budding writer who blogs about his current project – finishing his first novel.
Thanks Kavita for opening this world to me.
