Awards & Appreciations - The Liebster Award

Awards and Appreciations. Who doesn't wants it? Everyone loves to get appreciated and recognized for something that they are good at. The  other night while checking a code, I received a Gmail with a blogger giving me a Liebster award. Blogging awards are not new to the bloggers who blogged in the late 2000's. Those days people never used to worry about how many backlinks they had, or page views or color of their template or how many facebook likes or Twitter followers they had! They used to write what was on their heart. And when such a content reached their target audience, their heart danced with joy. Such was blogging during those days, they never worried about stats and other technicalities. They used to be content with their writings and other creative things that they did. After the arrival of brand blogging and stuff, the entire essence of blogging changed. Some bloggers were enticed by brands and the associated blogging communities that presented them with vouchers and gifts as a gratitude.  Later many fell prey to it. Brands realized the power of blogging and it's hidden potentials. One after another, brands unleashed the power of blogging to the max and used it  for their marketing. Trust me , before all these, life was bliss! Many of who started blogging in the 2000's would relate to what I'm stating here. 

Bloggers would fondly greet and appreciate each other by presenting blog awards. Some of them include - Rockstar , Blogging Superstar, Versatile Blogger, All round blogger, Kreative Blogger and many on. The latest on the list is the Liebster award. I never really know what it means but on extensive research I realized that it is a blogger award given to fellow bloggers who are good at their own niche! Liebster means dearest, sweetest, kindest and much more. Let's not dig too deep into it.  But here is the statement for it.

What is a Liebster Award?
The Liebster Blog Award is an exciting opportunity to develop relationships with our fellow bloggers from different domains.

This is a peer-nominated award which acts as a chain blog post. This is mainly intended to connect with new bloggers while building your email list.

Who nominated me?
A blogger who goes by the name DeeDee in the blogworld nominated me. I am not an award freak or someone who would like to receive awards. Those days we used to do it for fun. Thank you Deepika for honoring me with the Liebster. You are too kind. Thanks!
I hereby accept this award presented to me by her.

Here is the Q&A that DeeDee had given to me.

1. What is the best thing that has happened to you? A1 - Being born in a family that loves me unconditionally and serves as a support structure during my time of crisis and distress is the best thing that happened to me.

2. What is that one thing or incident in life that you regret? A2 - Never listened to my heart when subjected to pressure. I applied logic and ignored what my heart craved to hear me. Sadly, I had betrayed my own heart. I would regret that decision for a lifetime. But things did work well and in some or the other way, that logical decision worked well for me.

3. If there is one person in this world you would get to say Sorry, who would it be and why? A3 - Harneet. I don't understand how things unfolded drastically and I soon landed up on her block list for some weird petty reasons that I could not figure out. I still miss her and I would not mention the reason because it's personal.

4. What is your most searched word or phrase on Google - A4 - The Solitary Writer ;-)

5. Who is the last "Received call" on your mobile phone (Eg: carpenter, dad, a friend) A5 - Neeta, my best buddy !

6. What is the wallpaper on your mobile phone (Eg. Nature, my family, my pet) A6 - Some random Lenovo inbuild wallpaper. I don't really care about all that.

7. If ever, you get an all paid trip anywhere in this world, where would you go? A7 - I would visit Srilanka and Switzerland. My ancient roots may belong to India but our immediate  family had migrated to Srilanka many years back  while we decided to stay back in India. The one's who went there migrated to other developed countries due to the Civil War in Srilanka. Most of them have settled in the Norway, Switzerland, Singapore, Denmark, Canada and the US and visit India to meet all of us.

8. What is the worst pick-up line used on you A8 - I seldom remember such things. 

9. What is Happiness for you A9 - Happiness is something that gives me self-satisfaction be it whatever. Creative things make me happy.

10. One advice you would give your teen self A10  - I have crossed that stage 9 years back! No longer a teen ;-) And it wasn't a happening phase because I chased excellence and education chased me.. It was a kind of a relay race where I forgot what life was all about. I should have paused for a moment and looked back at the good things that life offered me. 

11. If there was a life after death, what would you want to be reborn as?
Would love to be reborn as a human in the same family that I live now. I would love to be the same lovely son to my doting parents and a caring brother to my younger sibling.

Now that you have read this. It's time to announce the rules.

The Liebster Blog Award rules are mentioned below:

Quintet of Radiance Award!

<! - Blog Award >

No one actually knows who started the concept of awarding fellow bloggers in blog-sphere. It used to rain awards for my blog  during those days. I used to love it during the early years of blogging especially the glorious 2007's and 08's when I was new to blogging and fellow bloggers show their affection for your blogs by bestowing you with certain kind of awards. Some bloggers prefer to flaunt the logo's on their blog while some chose to remain silent. Those days used to be fun. Today after ages a wise blogger has decided to shower the Quintet of Radiance award upon the Solitary Writer. Thanks to my dearest Juhi of ShitZooo.  I take this opportunity to  thank Juhi and of course I will accept this award. But before that I would like to say few words about Juhi. Juhi is a talented young blogger who often reminds me of  the young Solitary Writer. She writes good blog posts. I should admit that I have not  been a regular reader of her blogs but whenever I get a chance I do visit her blog as a silent reader. Do not kill me for this, Juhi!  And you know how much I hate commenting  ;)  I want to tell you today that - you are a fabulous blogger and you have a long way to go if you have this passion for writing intact.! Guys - Watch out for this talented girl in blog-world.

Things to be done after Accepting the Quintet of Radiance Award -
1. Display the logo on your blog post

PS - I generally do not do award posts these days. I am glad that I wrote this post which actually made me nostalgic.

Also , bloggers do note that you would feel that I may not have commented on your blog or even visited your blog, but you should know that I have been reading your work as a silent reader as I generally do not have time to comment and express my thoughts. So its once in a blue moon that I write comments and let the bloggers know my views about their article. Hope it makes sense ;) 

Quintet of Radiance is an award given to recognize good blogs and their fabulous bloggers.
The Solitary Writer is a blog which started as a hobby.Here you will find stories, poems, satirical posts, humour, photography and almost everything. This blog is the alter ego of a Technical guy who loves to be called as the Solitary Writer. Others call him Ste. He works as a Senior Quality Analyst in a leading Organisation and loves to break the codes and he likes to  do things differently. Did you like this post?
