I had started blogging around two months back when my summer vacations had started and since then I have been going  over  various  blogging communities reading one blog after another.  Some of them I found very appealing.  On some of the blogs that I had visited and still do visit regularly I had observed that some of them have been recipient of various kinds of awards that are there in existence in  the world of blogging. Some blogs have even been honored with these awards multiple times.  Although I am just like a two month old infant in this blogging world I always  had an inner desire to be the recipient of one or more( getting a bit selfish here !!!) such awards. To be honest everyone wants such accolades and so do I. But I would be writing this post so soon was something I had never thought of.

Today morning when I woke up and checked my mail account I saw that someone had commented on my blog.( I do get very excited seeing one of these mails as a comment from your readers gives you satisfaction like nothing else) But this was something beyond ordinary and definitely out of the blue. I have been recommended for my first ever blog award  ‘THE LIEBSTER AWARD’.For those who don’t know this is an award given to those bloggers who are relatively new on the block so that they can be identified and appreciated by the other members of the blogging world. I am really thankful to Vaishali Jain the author of 'COSMUSE' blog for this honor. When I started this blog at the beginning of my vacation I didn’t know how would my blog turn up ; I didn’t know what would be I writing about ; I didn’t know whether I would be able to write regularly or not; I didn’t know whether I would be appreciated or not let alone the thought of winning an award. But all said and done here is my blog  ‘NOTHING...just a thought about EVERYTHING’ with its very first award.

All I can say in the end is that I am really delighted and the fact that I am being appreciated out there by others gives me immense satisfaction and the motivation to go on with my journey in the world of blogging.

Thank You !!!
