Look Ma, an award!

Thank you, Mandira, Dotthoughts, The Mad Momma, Neera, Kiran and a muser for giving me this award.

The past year spent in the blogosphere as a blogger (rather than as a reader and commenter) has been tremendously rewarding. Receiving an award like this is a nice bit of frosting on what has been a largely scrumptious cake. ( You can see what a foodie I am, though I haven't yet blogged about food, barring cabbage and a mention of Ethiopian food in a travel post).
New worlds have opened up to me, and I have come across some amazing bloggers.
Since the rules of this award require me to pass this on to a minimum of seven bloggers, I take great pleasure in giving this award ( in no particular order) to the following:

sur notes
space bar
bird's eye view
sundar narayan

This award is for blogs whose content and/or design are brilliant as well as creative.
The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogosphere.
1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back
2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog’
4. Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize (optional).
5. And then we pass it on!

Congrats! I enjoy your posts too:) By the way, I also wanted to award you, but you had received the award many times by then, so I had to do with just mentioning you :)

Sheesh. And I gave you one more. Go collect at thirtysixandcounting.

SUR NOTES said...

dipali: truth be told i am terrified of the little girl. i have to stop blogging about her. she had to rush to the loo in the middle of her breakfast with her papa. on the pot, she says, i think, just now, papa is eating my food.

she could as well be saying, i think, just now, mummy is blogging about me.

dipali i am honoured that you remember me. actually i do have a blog - just that it keeps dying and being ressurected at completely random intervals. heres the link
do you have an email id that i can use?

dipali said...

@karmickids:Thank you kindly! Added:)
@sur: What a wonderful fear you have.
The reverse may work better- Sanah , Behave or I will blog about your naughtiness!
Seriously, been missing updates from you. Be a bold brave blogamamma!
@d: Yes, I've been to that site. But you write so rarely. E-mail me at I'd love to hear from you:)
