Two Awards

I was excited, amazed and humbled to be nominated for these two awards last weekend. To minimize multiple “award posts” I decided to combine both of them in one post. I sense that this is gonna be the longest post, my sincere apologies.

Real Neat Blogger Award

For this award, I was nominated by an amazing and talented writer and poet, Sarvagya, and I thank her very much.


  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the person who nominated you and and add a link to their blog.
  4. Nominate any number of people, linking to their blog; and let them know by commenting on their blogs.
  5. Come up with 7 questions for the people you nominated.


  1. How much time do you spend blogging everyday or week?
    A long time actually since I enjoy reading other people’s blogs, I do daily and weekly prompts, oh and I do one word and word of the day challenges as well.
  2. Do you try to go and like other people’s blogs, for discovering new ones?
    I do as much as I can, especially since I am also a new blogger who just got discovered. I read, like, comment and follow other people’s blogs.
  3. How did you start blogging?
    I have terrible communication skills. For years, I’ve had unexpressed anger, sadness, hurt, disappointment and loneliness which made me a bitter person. So, I decided to write, for venting and therapeutic purposes, that’s why I call my blog a “diary“.
  4. Who is your absolute favorite author/musician?
    I am obsessed with Maya Angelou/ I have innumerable favorite gospel musicians, let me go for Israel Houghton for now, such a powerful worshipper he is.
  5. Out of the written, which one is your favorite?
    Through The Eyes Of A Poet
    That was the first “unemotional” poem I wrote.
  6. What other hobbies do you have, than writing?
    Singing, I am a worshipper actually. Also, I am in IT department and I love programming so much.
  7. Give one piece of advice to those who might want to start blogging?
    Never betray the reason why you started blogging, be faithful to it and excel on it. Be a genuine blogger and you’ll be recognized.

      1. Hahaha… Nooooo… Hold on, let me explain what I meant.

        I’d told u that I’ll do it tomorrow. So I knew since I did not do it, you will definitely taunt me after a few days. But, I wasn’t expecting your comment so soon on me not doing it.πŸ™ˆπŸ€£
