Two milestones!

Hey guys!! I am so happy and I guess you can see the very obvious reason. I have reached 500+ followers AND a  one year WordPress anniversary  ON THE SAME DAY!! 😛

😀 Thanks a lot guys, all this wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for your gracious support and feedback.

It just feels like yesterday when I posted my first post, which is  WAY too amateur and amusing to read now. Here’s a link to it:

https://jazzlilyblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/13/the-intro-for-fun/?customize_changeset_uuid=c0b6216b-ad29-42eb-897d-aae8360696cc

Pleez don’t laugh  😛

And then,when I  got the first like to my first post, imagine my happiness! I was jumping around, dancing like an idiot, not just because I got my first like, but because I had already had another blog prior to this which nobody read and nobody commented and nobody liked. So my first like in my second blog meant my writing has tons improved than what it was when I wrote my first blog.

I must say, that writing is an art. Blogging is a talent. And all the bloggers here, you are the BEST. Its all because of your support that now I have marched ahead forward to this very milestone(s).

It has been a pleasant journey till here and I hope Jazzlily blog is something more to you all than some ordinary person’s ranting on the internet. 😉

Getting 500 followers was my DREAM. A dream that I thought was never possible to reach. Oh, I am very glad to have been proven wrong!

Blogging has become my HOBBY. Blog has become my DIARY. And WORDS have become my friends.

I thank all of the very outstanding bloggers out there for encouraging me with your comments and feedback, and having helped me write in this blog for an year.

I hope Jazzlily blog has many more years to live on and many more milestones to achieve and…well..I am just too excited to write more! I gotta be celebrating now! 😀

🙂

Yours joyfully

Jazz

 

P.S Don’t forget to check out my post “Being happy” which is somewhat dear to my heart. 😀 Here’s the link.

And now is the most favorite part of mine…the answering of question!!!

1 ) When and why did you start your blog?

I started blogging on March, last year. (Oh yeah…come to think of it, my blog is about to reach a milestone of an year!)

2 ) What’s your epic moment in blogging?

When I had my first follower. The reason is because I had another blog earlier which hardly received any views and followers were nothing to think about. So you see, when I received a notification that someone has followed me, you can never imagine my excitement with flooded through my veins and had me doing a victory dance for the next half-an-hour.

3 ) What part of the blogging you like the most?

The writing part which is mostly poems and sometimes stories.  This is the part where I get to express my feelings, the part where I can get a small population read my works, comment, feedback and share their views. Writing in my blog is my hobby. My blog is my diary, a place where my soul belongs.

4 ) What’s your profession? Full time blogger?

Nah…No profession for me, you see… 😀

5 ) What’s on the top of your bucket list?

Right now it is to complete my painting which has been pending since a month. Then there is learning some manners, thinking before speaking, being punctual and organized and blah, blah, blah…

And here are the 5 questions for the bloggers I’ve nominated.

  1. What is your hobby? Why do you prefer it?
  2. If you had the power to change one thing in the world so that it benefits the population, then what would it be?
  3. Do you prefer exercising? Or couch-surfing?
  4. What is that moment in your life which you’ll cherish til your last breath?
  5. Lastly, what is your most treasured possession? Why do you value it above the others?

So…here has come the moment to end this post. I thank  the person who nominated me to this award. I also thank all the readers who read my post till the last word. And remember, you are the BEST!

-me.

Sunshine blogger award

So…mike testing..1..2..3…Perfect!

So, firstly, I thank the prefect Paula  for nominating me to this award. I’m really thankful to it, of course. And I must, you’ve to visit her blog and surely read her amazing posts.

When I came across the name of this award, I was struck by a nostalgic thought (which is actually very, very funny.) It was when I was 5 years old, an age where your friend talking with your enemy meant serious fights.

So I organized an “association” called “Sunshine team” (LOL!) which consisted of only me friends, precisely, two of my classmates. And, we, the Sunshine team had our own rule book which prevented us from talking with our enemies, (the kids who don’t share their toys with us.) And we followed the “rules and guidelines” strictly. But later, when I grew up, “Sunshine team” (ROFL!) was dissolved into a pure, humorous memory.

So yeah, back to the topic.

THE RULES

Sunshine blogger award is a truly nice award that is given by bloggers to other bloggers who “are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.

The rule book of the Sunshine Blogger Award says:

•Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

•Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you.

•Nominate eleven blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.

•List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog.

 

x

So…the eleven questions asked to me are-

1)Tell us a secret.

I really, really fear confined, dark spaces and sharks. I’ve never told this to anyone, because, you know, I can’t afford being made fun off.  😉

2) What is your ideal vacation?

Trip to all the seven wonders of the world and eating all the types of food available in those places.  😉

3) Name the most beautiful city/place you’ve been so far.

The most, most beautiful place is my home. (After cleaning it, of course. 😛  )

4) What is on top of your bucket list?

Becoming a person that the world will recognize and appreciate.

5) What is your favourite recipe (pick something from your own country)?

PIZZA!!!!

Who would you like to meet (dead or alive) and why?

I would seriously love to meet J.K.Rowling and as her for a few writing tips. 🙂

Would you like to be famous?

Of course. It would be a total new experience.

Are yo into sports (both watching/playing)?

Sorta, you could say. (If you include battling with my brother as a sport, then I’m an expert.) 😛

How do you express yourself?

Through words when I’m happy, through silence when I’m angry.

What would you like to achieve with your blog?

Oh…nothing. I would like nothing more than people to read my blog and tell me how they feel about my writing and their feedback.

Fruit or veggies?

Veggies. (Spicy ones only….!)
