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

Six Word Story Challenge

I came across this challenge when Grace commented on one of my first few blogs and i was really overwhelmed seeing the comment from a totally random person 🙂 And that was it i ended up going through each and every word of Grace’s blog which undoubtedly is so creative, interesting and something to look forward to like a daily dose of pill you need to have. Thanks Grace once again and yeah as we discussed going to stick to  – Grace’s 20dayworld 

This challenge originally was posted by Six Word Story Challenge by Benedict to frame a story in six words based on a theme – a word, which i think is really gonna challenge one’s writing , analyzing and interpretation of a simple word  into so many different experiences and themes.

So here i go with my attempt to this weeks challenge. Waiting to hear your comments 

Lost myself cause i lost you

What is the toughest part about Blogging?

The most challenging part about Blogging is Getting Started….isnt it for everything else as well in this world??? 😉

You have something in your mind, and some level of ability to put them into words..that’s all you need. This could be many things ranging from different subjects and genres. But instead you wait. You have number of excuses, but all you are is scared to make the first step and to enjoy that first move which could have lead you to a journey that is yours, owned and laid by you and only you.

Whenever i tried to start a blog the first question that would come in my mind would be – What do i Blog about?  Once i started writing essays on different topics that are mostly given in essay competitions and realized it was very boring, the second time i started with documenting all poems and quotes i had collected over years  – basically the diary i had maintained i thought i ll make it digital 😛 and it sucked after a week.

Every time that i had tried blogging, what also scared me was those blogs which had so many followers, comments, like and shares and to add to the fear even, dare i say it, advertisers!  

So i realized its not about what you want to write, its about what you enjoy talking/letting people know/evaluate/analyze/or just like about that you should blog. These big bloggers i mentioned about above, were normal people like you and me, with their own fear and insecurities.

So i decided just like they started blogging by keeping their fears aside, i did the same and started my blog the third and for sure the last one too. (yes am sure its the final one)
