A pat on my back

I got this award from Smita, the book lover blogger.


This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
I am not sure I fit the bill. Some of my friends accuse me of being an obsessive, addicted blogger.
I lack consistency in style, subject, and object of my obsessions.

On the other hand, I have some fans too. My father thinks my blog should be published, like a book. ;)

Me thinks these awards are like comments, self generated, albeit a nice compliment.

An award is an award, and so, thank you, Smita.

I pass on this award to :

Banno : A fellow FTIIan, I feel closer to her as a fellow blogger than I ever did before.

Insane Mama Blogger : Whenever motherhood overwhelms me, I escape to this blog and feel, phew, its not as bad as this. I like her music too.

Nehas blog: My hubby knew her before he met me. She was my first inspiration. So I should actually call her my blogging guru.

Johnathan's blog : I must admit I cant get myself to read all his posts. But I knew him before I met my hubby, so he has to be included. :)

FTIIians sad childhood blog
: Maybe its because I have a weak memory, that I find it very difficult to relive my past. Or maybe it is spiritual progress that keeps me in the present moment.

Jabbaa's blog : Now you know what I call him. He is here for the record, I don't read him either. :)

Best friend's blog : Her I cant read often enough. Problem is, she has a shortage of ink in her pen. She has also designed the cover of my novel.

Homeopathic doc : His first posts are very cute and honestly written. In fact, I used one of them in my writing class. I asked the students to edit it and they just couldn't. :)

Mad Momma: In spite of myself, I cant get over this addiction. Her posts are far too long, she hogs my time, but she is good. She is a one-way friend in absence.

Keep writing, guys.

Thank you kindly for your mention. I'm not sure if it's the sheer numbers from your link, but somehow ecstaticgaucho.com doesn't seem to be functioning today. I was just about to put the final touches to a mega-post too. One that would have been so interesting you'd just have to read to the final full stop. Ho hum. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
