My First Blog Award

Whoa! Such a pleasure this is! I check my blogger profile and the the next thing I know - there is a comment awaiting my attention. Not pertaining to a  blog post of mine but to a you-have-received-an-award message.

My first blog award! :)

I started Cosmuse almost a month back in mid-June while most at home were enjoying their vacations. This was my way of enjoyment. Writing! 

I didn’t know what my posts would consist of; I didn’t know if I’d be able to get any readership; I didn’t know if anyone would appreciate my efforts. All I knew was I had to give some more time to my passion. I had no writing schedule. Busy past midnight in all works but writing… it wasn’t really satisfying. 

But here I am! Learning new art forms; writing each day; thinking; observing and loving it all.

Thanks to Green Speck for considering me, a newcomer here, for this honor. SO kind of him. I never thought that Cosmuse would have an award so soon. Well, I am chuffed, so say the least.

Thank you!

  1. If you are tagged/nominated, you have to post 11 facts abut yourself.
  2. Then you answer the 11 questions the tagger has given you & make 11 questions for the people you are going to tag.
