2015 in review

I was so excited to see this report of a fellow blogger and tried all possible ways to search how could i get to see my report and finally my friend told me to check my mail and there it was.!!! I was so overwhelmed to see how i have been doing, somehow it felt like the same feeling when you get your results after an examination though in the case of blogging you are everything the teacher the student you learn unlearn and relearn things as and when you get deeper into the blogging world!!! I am glad i could i did pretty okay for a time of four months i hope 2016 is gonna be a roller coaster ride for me and i keep writing and reading!!! Wishing everyone a very HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!! STAY HAPPY STAY BLESSED!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,600 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 43 trips to carry that many people.

SISTERHOOD OF THE WORLD BLOGGER AWARD

screen-shot-1937-07-07-at-1-48-20-pm-png

Thank you so much gal for the nomination!!! And yeah always thought of telling in the comments but i keep forgetting and that is this one line on your blog which brings a genuine smile on my face – “We were born to be real, not to be perfect.” Totally love it!! 🙂 ( i don’t know if there is a heart or love symbol in WP..still new here)

Who is a female figure, you look up to? – No matter how old i grow, how experienced i become, how strong or independent i become; this lady no matter she is not with me anymore in life she has left me with a life full of experiences, stories, sayings, thoughts, advice, love, blessings and prayers and that’s none other than my MOTHER. 

A movie that seems like a representation of your life? – Not yet. I mean somehow i find my shades of characters in almost some movie or series but not in complete sense!! My life could be made into a movie for sure;)

Current favorite song? Too many, changes with the mood.

Something you’re bad at and want to get good at? – I can’t whistle and blow a chewing gum 😛 I  have been trying this since i was a kid

Meaning behind your URL?- Hope this answers LIFEASAPOTPOURRI

The meanest thing someone has ever said to you?- I don’t remember them cause i ll keep thinking about it over and over again. Well lets just say my answer to them would be – You can love me , you can deny me but you can never ignore me !! 🙂 😉

The nicest thing someone has ever said to you? – I am blessed to be loaded with nicest things every time. So many again that i keep thinking about all those whenever i feel low and it just helps me rise up.

Your opinion on feminism? – Feminism is like two sides of the coin. People tend to use it according to their convenience which i think is totally wrong. Feminism is to feel equal in the society to the male species and should not be mistaken as a means to prove them wrong or inferior or get things done easily for you the woman community. And feminism is not just restricted to one gender but should be considered equally in the society. It does not mean hate men or hate girls (every  girl has that one girl on their target hit list :P), it simply means equality in total

What quality do you like in a person?- Nobody is perfect so i don’t expect someone to be perfect in all aspects. But i admire people who are honest to people and honest to themselves, who respect the opposite person and treat people around with care and affection despite difference in age, sex, caste, social and financial status, job profile etc., chivalry in men,intelligent people who talk sense , people who do not have intentions or have actions that harm others. And that one quality that can make me go weak in my knees is someone who can make me laugh. 

Favorite accent? –I think as Indians we are accent neutral.  Any other accent sounds different and good to me.

P.S – Not nominating anyone cause most people on my blog have already been nominated more than once. Sorry sisters!! 😦 

To end with  – WE WERE BORN TO BE REAL, NOT TO BE PERFECT

A 100 followers + Giveaway and another Blog Award :)

This was one of the perfect weekends ever since i started blogging two months ago. Best cause this was the best weekend with dad here in Bangalore with me(technically speaking my dad and me have lived for two whole months together after like ten years since i moved out for my graduation and then job), long weekend (3 days of leave for an IT person is absolute bliss) and to see notification on my mobile in the morning that i now have A 100 FOLLOWERS 🙂 🙂 🙂 for my blog plus another Sisterhood  AWARD from Dauntlessdream ( i am gonna answer your questions in another post for sure) , What other reasons you need for a perfect weekend?? Yipeeeee Woohoooo and all those adjectives that you wana add to my happiness !!!! I am on cloud nine today!!! 

100 followers: BEFORE I STARTED BLOGGING my idea of blogging was totally different from what i have experienced in the last two months. I assumed blogging was just limited to writing your own thoughts and expecting random people to read it. I was also unaware of the happiness one feels when a word press notification pops up on your mobile saying XYZ has liked your post, ABC has commented on your post and more than anything XYZ and ABC have started following your blog!!!

NOW WHEN I AM INTO BLOGGING In the last two months i am sure nothing has made me this happy as much as the blogging world has by accepting me. And it’s not just about me and my blog, but the whole world of awesome writers,thinkers and beautiful people i have come across through my blogging is overwhelming! I am so addicted to read what people have written about certain things, how they have interpreted a simple word in various ways, to know about new cultures and lifestyle that was totally unaware to me that i am glued to my WordPress mobile app more than whatsapp and candy crush :P. I am really really happy!!!!

So am shouting out loud a BIGGGGGGG THANKKKKK YOUUUU to all those wonderful people who have subscribed to my blog, commented, liked, nominated, criticized, for the love and support and motivated to keep me going with LIFE AS A POTPOURRI my blog and not quit this time half way. I am gonna continue my journey which is a positive and enlightening experience for me. BLOGGING is one best gift i have given myself in the recent past and i am in love with it. Also to all my friends who don’t have a word press account yet visit my blog and comment and give their feedback regularly. Thank you Thank you!!! 

Being accepted by your family and friends is happiness, but being accepted by the world out there is privilege!!

GiveawaySo i would want to celebrate my happiness by giving away something personalized to all the 100 followers ( i haven’t decided on the logistics yet but i am gonna do this for sure, receiving a 100 followers is a MILESTONE)

Rules are pretty simple: Comment on this blog something about yourself or may be a nickname and abbreviation etc so that i can use it on whatever i am making and your email id (so that i can touch base with you if i further needed to). And i am serious about it!!! Am not selecting people in random but the first 100 subscribers of mine cause am in love with you!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 and ** it’s not limited to India alone** ! 

thank-you

Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award – HAPPY!!!

I wish there was a better word instead of “thank you” to tell someone Mansi from Drowningwings, THANK YOU so much for nominating me for  

 SISTERHOOD OF THE WORLD BLOGGER AWARD

screen-shot-1937-07-07-at-1-48-20-pm-png

Being new to the blogging world and being appreciated by fellow bloggers is really over whelming and is helping me to be motivated and to keep on blogging…and am gonna keep doing it! 🙂 🙂 🙂 

Rules for the award:

  1. Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
  2. Answer the 10 questions given to you.
  3. Pass the award on to ‘N’ (as many as you want) other bloggers of your choice and let them know that they have been nominated.
  4. Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog.

Questions asked by Mansi

What female person was the most challenging? – Hehehe this one is hilarious. Who else other than Mothers!!! My mummy (as i call her) was a teacher so the “challenge” becomes even more serious 😛 Oh no am just kidding i love my mom, all that i am today i owe it to her and i hate that she is up there with God and not me anymore 😦

What thought made you start your blog? – I always loved writing, from small letters to my parents whenever i wanted to tell them a sorry for being naughty or just say i love you, literary competitions, newsletters in schools and colleges, emcee and then it all came to a halt once i got into my IT job where writing was a rare activity. So i decided to write my heart out and start my blog so in future even though i am not there my words would be flowing in this digital space.

Do you have a quirk which the typical women clichés ? – Well my family and friends say i am more like a guy in my attitude but i know deep down am the typical girl who is romantic and caring and strong and independent and yeah “moody” (also a cancerian so mood swings is like a daily affair 😛  i am not scaring anyone just a disclaimer you need to hit the right chords to know me well )

Name a female blogger you want to meet ? – I think there are so many lovely people out there that i have come across that i would wana meet all of them something like a get together or an All Girls Indian Bloggers meetup (no offense to non Indians considering the geographic difference)

What experience was the most encouraging in your life? – I have been living away from home for the last 9 years and everyday has taught me something new. Some experiences have taught me to be more careful while others have taught me to be not to hard on myself. Some were scary but i turned those incidents into lessons for the future. 

What is writing to you ? – This i would answer by quoting one of my fav quotes –“You don’t write because you want to say something, You write because you have something to say”

Beauty or Brain? – Oh boy i have had some bad experiences when i was so mesmerized by the beauty that the moment the opposite person spoke i was shattered and just felt like why did i do this to myself 😛 Looks can be deceptive totally holds good in such incidents. I guess if you made sense while talking you automatically become a beautiful person ! I adore people who could strike a decent conversation and i love who can just play with the words and make me laugh.

What is your favorite quote and why? –  I feel Quotes help us and so i have summed up my favs here in this post – Quotes that inspired me

What are the characteristics of your ideal man? – I think there is no such definition to an Ideal Man coz there aren’t any Ideal Woman out there. For me the one who accepts my flaws, turns them around as my strength, hangs on during my worst, makes me laugh and more than anything respects my individuality deserves the best of me. I am a die-hard romantic and i would be in awe if he could compliment me in that.

Why you named your blog with the name it is presently having? – Mansi looks like i have answered most of your questions in my already published blogs..what coincidence! LIFE AS A POTPOURRI
