Britain Award For Mix-Niche Blog – My Fourth Award Nomination!

Hello Everyone,

This post is pretty late, but a couple of weeks ago, at the end the year, I received the notification that Scenario of Life was rewarded for the Britain blog award.  Since it was the beginning of the New Year following the New Year’s Eve, these days were the busy days for me, so I decided to let this alone for that moment and just decided to shout out to Erika Barbosa for taking the time to check out my website and nominating it.

I am really honored to receive this award, especially since I am new to the blogosphere.  I always love getting tagged for such awards.  It's wonderful and encouraging at the same time to see that other bloggers recognize my work.  Erika from California, herself is a new blogger, so it’s great to be rewarded by a peer.   She has an amazing blog, too (by that I mean I have an amazing blog as well ;-) ) which is named as “Unapologetically Erika.”  And one of my favorite posts of her is “Hi, I’m Erika. I’m an Addict.”  In your spare time, do check out her blog.

“The Britain Blog Award- for Mix-Niche Blogs” is an online award that is given to blogger by other bloggers.  The goal of this award is to bring recognition to mix-niche blogs, meaning to recognize the blogs that cover a little bit of everything.  It’s an opportunity for bloggers to recognize one another for each of our contributions to the blogging community!

Here are my responses to Erika’s posed questions:

1.  What made you want to start blogging?
My interest or maybe passion for writing.  I have been writing poems since my teenage and it's been a decade now.  Though I haven't wrote one for a long time and I ought to pick up doing that again.  I first got in contact with this type of literature when finding my papa’s (dad) collection of ghazals.  And my papa inspired me to start blogging too.  Read the full story here.

2.  What are some goals for your blog?
Well, I haven’t set up any big goals for my blog as of now, but yeah I have some goals that are pretty easy to accomplish and those are to serve my existing readers, to attract new audience, to reach out to as many people as I can with my contents and making my subscriber list.  That way I have small goals that I can focus on every day.

3.  Who are some of your favorite writers and why?
There are number of writers who I like and I can’t enlist all of them here, but yeah I would definitely like to mention the two and one of them is my papa (dad) of course.  He is a journalist for almost 3 decades now; he has composed countless articles, edited numerous books, and translated a number of books so far.  He used to write “ghazals” (an Arabic poetry) too.  I grew up reading his write-ups.  He is my inspiration for my writing and of course for everything I do in life.  The other one I would say Nicholas Sparks because he is one of the innovative writer and I love his ability to take the readers inside the heads and emotions of the characters.

4.  What is your motto?
This is something that I would like to keep to myself only.  So, I am sorry!

5.  What is the best movie you have seen this year?
I personally like to watch love stories, but the best movie that I have seen last year (I haven’t seen any movie this year as of yet) was “Hindi Medium” which is an Indian comedy-drama movie.  This movie deals with a pertinent subject of how language divides the Indian society.

My favorite posts made on my blog so far:

It’s quite difficult to pick just few of them because I love all the posts that I have composed so far, but as I have to list 4 posts only as per the award rules so those are:
