Brilliant Award Week
An award called the Brilliant Weblog Award is doing the rounds, and spreading plenty of blog love. I thought I would do my bit. Here is the award so kindly given to me by Rajat Arora, Mad Momma and Vishesh. Regarding the three who have given me this award…I don’t know Rajat’s blog very well, but I do know MM’s and she deserves the award far more than me – for the brilliant passion with which she writes. And Vishesh deserves it for the brilliantly unique way he has shaped his blog. Thanks to all of you for giving me this award.
I am to pass it on to 7 people says Rajat, and some say 8. I have already awarded it to Amit of Mashed Musings for his brilliantly thoughtful posts and Rambodoc for his brilliant wit. This is the formal announcement.
There are others I wanted to award this to but some have already received the award from Nova and some from Vishesh. If I hadn’t known it, I might have awarded them. But Axinia, Roop and Ruhi have already received this award, so I won’t include them. However let me just say that Axinia deserves this award for the brilliant positive energy she radiates from her blog, Roop deserves it because of the brilliant intensity of her posts and Ruhi deserves it for her brilliance in managing to write hard-hitting posts. And ofcourse Nova. I love the brilliant energy she exudes from her blog and her genuine goodwill. Vishesh has awarded Prerna and Xylene and both are brilliant in their own way. Prerna for her ability to come out with topical posts and with brilliant fervour, and Xylene for his brilliant slice of life posts, all tongue-in-cheek.
I wanted to award Reema too, for the most brilliant debut as a blogger, but Nikhil has already given her the award. Nikhil deserves the award for writing brilliantly magnetic posts which seem to draw everybody to them.
But as I said I am not awarding them, just mentioning them.
So that means I still have awards to award. So here goes.
I award Poonam for her brilliantly thoughtful posts (same reason why I awarded Amit). I also award Shefaly for her brilliance with words and incisive analysis, Priyank for his brilliant travelogues, Rambler and Maria Christina for their brlliant insights into themselves, Gabriella for her brilliant writing…oops, eight already! If I go on I am going to reach 20 very soon so I shall stop here.
I wanted to award Mahendra who had a very good blog. But he has almost disappeared and I certainly miss his blogging. There are others who deserve the award, like Arvind, but I need to stop! There are more, but I cannot award them as I don’t regularly keep up with their blog. There are some blogs I have just started visiting and therefore cannot award them with any sincerity.
All recipients of the Brilliant Weblog award are welcome to award it to whoever they feel is deserving, whether it’s just 2-3 awards or 8-9, it doesn’t matter. But do give it to someone whom you feel truly deserves it, not just because the person is your friend. I feel that working hard on most posts and originality of content and/or presentation are both equally important, even if it means irregular posting. Brilliant blogging to me means working hard at posts and writing original content, not necessarily posting everyday.
(I was going to post this with my summary post tomorrow but found that it had got too long).
