Hey all, so once again this seems to be a blessed opportunity. I had three posts in my pipeline, including this one because honestly speaking life has gotten busier and I am always on the search for some peaceful hours of solitude where I can write my heart out but whatsoever, this can never be an excuse for staying away from blogging and most importantly an award post because they are always such an honour and fill me with great pleasure (Yes I can’t deny that flutter of my heart when I see my name in the nominees yeee 🙌🙌😍😄)
Alright, so I was nominated for this award by auburnrhyme, one of the most mature and profound blog writers I have come across, her posts are dripping with sesne and have that balance and weight of a professional. I would really insist that you check her blog out over here because otherwise you are missing on something real. Thanks a lot Rimsha, you have always been an inspiration.
Moving on to the rituals,
The rules are as follows
- Write a post including the award picture (thankuu thepakistanigirls’guide for such a nice pic)
- Nominate twelve other bloggers
- Nominees should answer the same questions as the ones below
- Thank the blogger that nominated you and link their blog
Okay so the questions were short and fun, I enjoyed them and hope you like reading them too.
Q1. What do you hope to gain from blogging?
Ans. I believe a sense of achievement and contentment because I have always wanted to help people, move people, to make a difference in their lives through my words. (I love writing paras and rambling on and on so I m trying to make it short this time, yes I am having a hard time doing that:p)
Q2. What genre of film entertains you the most?
Ans. Okay so I had to think for a while for this one because I basically do not happen to be a movie person, more like idk what genre thingy you talkin bout man, i just like animated movies but ok, maybe thriller and science fiction. How about comedy? That’s fun too, no? Ok 😂😂
Q3. Do you consider yourself a writer, and what inspires you?
Ans. I have always been ambivalent about the first part, as much as I want to write and have that passion of making my mark through words, I am always full of self doubt when it comes to being called a ‘writer’ because I attach great importance to this word. For me it is more of something others would tell and judge yet I won’t let any judgemental freak put me down for my passion. Told you its ambivalent!
Inspiration for me comes from everywhere and anywhere, everyone and anyone. It just has to click and voila. This more has to do with my observations linked up with my spiritual connection.
Q4. Why did you choose your particular WordPress username?
Ans. You mean ‘Touufybits’? Well it is 3:30 am as I write this post and I am pretty sure it must have been some 3:40/2:40 am when I made the brilliant decision of merging my not-so-common-nick with tidbits? Wow okay yeah, basically at that time I was too desperate to start a blog and later my bestie seemed to like it so I never bothered changing it😂😂 (C’monnn, its cute!!🙈🙈🐥)
P.S: if you mean tehreemsiteblog, well its just my name.
Q5. What is your favourite book, and why does it speak to you?
Ans. Being an avid reader, this is definitely a difficult one but despite being confused about quite a few, I’d still name Forty Rules Of Love by Ellif Shafak.
Why it speaks to me? Because it is that book which has impelled me to speak less and less about it. The profound and abstruse spiritual connection which I have with this book is what I fear to put into words, it is so sacred and surreal that I try keeping it locked in a corner of my heart. It is about love, it is about everything.
Q6. What is your favourite song, and why does it speak to you?
Ans. Unlike a standout choice in books, one fav song is not only a difficult question but also a pretty unjust one for a music lover like me. There are so many songs I love so much just because they speak to me at so many different moments on so many different levels like please I am the kind of person who listens to the same song for consecutive seven times on repeat!
Q7. What is your favourite photograph and why does it speak to you?
Ans. Is it okay if I say I am not liking this business of picking favourites because it is forcing me to practice favouritism upon my own choices and my choices are defiantly competing against each other causing a complete mayhem inside me? Okay probably it is not okay if I say that soo…..I am assuming this has to be from one of my recent clicks:
Although they are two different clicks, their soul is the same. I have tried to capture the crescent moon which people are often looking for at Tumblr. This photograph speaks to me because the crescent is important to me, and it is important to me for more than one reason, if you didn’t notice before, the pics which I have shared of the book ‘forty rules of love’ also has the crescent and some stars engraved in gold on the front cover.
This is it for today, I hope you guys would enjoy reading since I was extremely happy with the kind of response I got on my previous award post. Now for the most difficult task, nominations, let me see how fair I can get :D:
