TheCramm Award

This award nomination and two more have been pending since long (I’m a queen at procrastination). Also, I’ve been so inactive for so long but am not being able to come up with any good post ideas. So, this award post comes as my saviour.

Thank you Ashutosh, for nominating me for this award. I’m late at posting this but this, in no way, means that nominations are any less special to me.

TheCramm award was created by Liv, the owner of theCramm, a wonderful site dedicated for lazy arses like us who don’t have the time to go through a whole newspaper but don’t want to live under a rock either.

Rules:

  1. Include a little bit about who created this award (with a link) and mention the person the who nominated you.
  2. Share 3 things that motivate you to blog and share 3 people that motivate you to blog as well
  3. Share one thing you hope to do that will improve the world
  4. Answer your challenge question
  5. Nominate your choice of bloggers and give them a challenge question.

3 Things That Motivate Me:

  1. This might sound like a cliché to most nevertheless it’s true me. The most important thing that motivates me is love. Love in all forms and sizes and ways. Love is what restores my faith in humanity, in the world. In a world where there is so much hate for all baseless reasons, there still prevails true love. Amidst people ready to kill one another, there are people ready to make any sacrifice for people. So, love helps me keep my sanity (whatever is left of that) intact.
  2. Instagram! Weird? But it’s true. There are such amazing accounts in there like Saloni ChopraNajiba, Priyanka Paul, that they constantly help me to push myself for the better and makes me see the world in a different light.
  3. Books. Fiction, non-fiction, all sorts. Since, I was 3, it’s books that made me realise how small a particle in this universe I am but still enough, to make an impact.

3 People That Motivate Me:

Maa, Atu (Grandpa) and Dia (Grandma). They are basically the pillar of strength, as people call it, for me. Wherever I am and wherever I’ll be, it is all because of them.

Of course, there are many more, like few of my friends and my sister but there isn’t one doubt that they take the top 3 positions.

However, a special shoutout to Emma Watson and Harry Styles, two celebs that have influenced me for the better. I’ve given the links to their Wikipedia pages; so if you don’t know about them, check them out!

One Thing I Hope to do to that will Improve the World:

All I really want to do is not lose myself in the way. If we stay true to ourselves and stay as simple and as true as were in our childhood, I think we’ll do the part in this world that we are supposed to do. Too many people get confused by money, religion and fame and in the process, do more harm than good.

Answering my challenge question: What is your meaning of life?

I’m scared people think of me as preachy or boring but really, for me, the meaning of life is quite simple: love. Yes, it is as simple as that. Love yourself, love what you do (which also translates as do what you love), love others and voila! You’ve lived a good life. 🙂

 

Nominations

I’m going to nominate 4 WordPress accounts that inspire me and 4 accounts that have recently followed me but I haven’t interacted with them AT ALL (so, this one as a thank you and sorry).

Edit 2: Ashutosh Gursale too nominated me for this award on 04/04/17]​

               Rules 

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story about how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.

My Blog Story: 

Writing has always been my passion. Okay, so, maybe I don’t write amazing deep stuffs like so many other. Maybe, I cannot twist and turn my words and make them sound like a poetry or song. But that didn’t make me love writing any less. So, creating a blog was always in the back of my mind. Since years! I wasn’t sure because I was kind of afraid if I wouldn’t get any response plus I’m lazy AF. When we were in class 12, my friend, Anushka, pestered me so much to create a blog because she wanted to and she needed some company. However, I didn’t. So, last year, she went on and created her blog. And I think that was the catalyst behind me creating my blog. Finally a few months later, I created mine too. However, it stayed dormant like that for a long time. It’s only last month on the 17th of February, I wrote my first post on my blog. So, yes, basically, I’m less than a month old. And so far, I’m loving the experience. There are some amazing people out here, always ready to encourage, comment and give constructive feedback. I’m so glad I made this blog. I didn’t think I’d ever have such a supportive community behind me to help me improve my writing.

Finding my name there made me so happy :’)

Advice to new bloggers:

I don’t think I’m eligible to give advice to new bloggers. How old am I? A month old? However, following the rules, I’ll say whatever I didn’t know before but learnt in this one month.

  1. Be honest and try out stuffs: So, you are not sure about your new writing.  You’re not sure if it’s good enough. So, you don’t want to post. I say, do it! Because your blog is your space to explore and learn and know. Be honest to yourself and write (or draw or whatever you post about) what you want to not what you think people will prefer. Try out new things, try out things you’re not sure of. And I assure you, you’ll be more sure than you were before posting it.
  2. Read as much as you write: I know most of us create a blog to write and post stuffs. So, do that. But read too. There so many amazing bloggers here. Read their amazing posts. That will not only be a nice refreshment but also, that will improve your writings too.
  3. Make friends: This one is the easiest. Talk to people, go to their blogs and comment.Make friends! I know I made a few in just a month (for an introvert, that’s a lot).
