Adam Lawrence of The Retrospective Reel along with Samantha of My Life in NZ and Amaya of Life of an El Paso Woman have nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. I most humbly thank them for this act of kindness. I request you all to visit their wonderful blogs and follow them. Adam is a very thoughtful person who writes about TV and cinema. So far I have only an opportunity to read his take on Breaking Bad and it was wonderful! Samantha’s blog has wonderful pictures which suggest me that she is a nature lover living in Auckland, New Zealand. Amaya is a wonderful blogger who was a journalist and took time out of writing. Now she is enjoying blogging and her articles are beautiful reads!

How This Blog Started:
Brief Version: A young lad wanted to develop original thinking and started scribbling compulsively. These notebooks grew immensely in time and weariness resulted in online record keeping eventually metamorphosing in blogging.
Long Version: Blogging Journey
Advice For New Bloggers:
Give and you will be given. Don’t hold back words of appreciation and kindness ever. Hesitate to criticise. Don’t judge, we are all fallible and learning from our mistakes.
Blogging is socializing. No difference whatsoever. Take a genuine interest in people. Blogs are dead-weights without bloggers.
Participate in discussions in comment sections of blogs you like. Address people with names. Participate in discussion forums and give sincere feedback to your fellow friends. If you do this you will neither run dry on inspiration, nor fall short of motivation and support. The Alumni forum is one such forum where active engagement in discussion, feedback and light-hearted chattering happens. Feel free to drop by and join as an author over there!
Follow the followers. If someone follows you, they deserve to be followed. With trial and error you will come to know which blogs appeal you more and more. There is no harm in creating a blogosphere where you have lots of followers but a few visitors who comment. Expansion is out of love, contraction is out of fear. Exposure isn’t possible unless you expand!
Participate in the Blogging University Courses–especially in the Blogging 101 and you will get to meet many good blogging friends. Blogging and life will become better if you keep interacting actively!
