2014, Awards

Awards 2014 –



Okay, hi again. I still don’t know how to do this post.

This is my fifth award post by the way. And my fifth year blogging too. Like, I just celebrated my fourth blogversary with imaginary balloons on 6th September, two thousand and fourteen. YAY.

Blogging was once everything to me. I was so so addicted to it, mostly because it was my favorite best outlet and I feared no judgement. My earliest posts here are some of the most childish, simplest, and lamest you’ll find. I like keeping them, though, because they were parts of me that I now miss.

It’s not that anymore. I still do love this space more than nething but things changed, I changed, life changed… *insert emo quote* πŸ˜›

Coming to the awards, there is the 2013 Blog of the Year award from sister Aisha! She gave this to me in January *gulps* and here’s to tell her that I’m truly grateful for the nomination. πŸ™‚

Aisha’s Oasis is a beautiful blog of her journey through Egypt! You’ll like the stories presented there. =] She has also given me the Wonderful team member readership award for which I’m truly grateful.

Then there is the Butterfly Light Award from the wonderful Beckarooney! She is one of the best people I’ve met here! Loves plants, takes photos, writes wonders.

She had also nominated me for a virtual blog tour which was supposed to be posted on 15th December, but *sigh* I couldn’t make it. Thank you though, I feel REALLY proud of this.

Besides other rules, this award requires me to explain in a paragraph how I am a positive influence or how I am spreading light. That is like. Um. I…

I don’t know how I am a positive influence but I know that I like people and I like living. Life can be very pathetic sometimes and we all know that. Friends leave, mishaps fall, things change, cross cross cross. One doesn’t get what they want, or maybe they do get it and then watch it slipping from their hands without having a say in that matter whatsoever. But Inna ma’al usri yusra [Verily, along with every hardship is relief] and Zindagi Megzara [Life moves on] so you know, one can just as well be okay about it. Why whine when you can shine~ [Lel]

Next is The Versatile Blog Award and The Sunshine Award from aak92! Thank you so much, awesome person! πŸ™‚

Also, there’s a Very Inspiring Blog Award from the wonderful Tina. Thank you, and I apologize for the delay! Suyash has also nominated me for this award with a lovely note on his blog. I am truly humbled, and well, THANK YOU! You made my end-of-year better! πŸ˜€

There is also the Liebster Award from this person which was given to me this November. Thank you again, and again, for your friendship and awesomeness!

(I have also been asked 11 questions from him which are pretty interesting. I will write another post to answer them separately, later inshaAllah.) ^-^

Then there is the Dragon’s Loyalty Award from Reva given to me on September 16. ‘Strings of soulfulness‘ is what her blog is called, and trust me her musings are just as beautiful as this name!

Thank you, dear person! I loved receiving this. πŸ™‚

Then there is the Sisterhood of the World’s Blogger Award from H which was given to me this December. I thank you for that, and I love your blog! (As for the answers, I’ll do them in another post I think, iA, and display the badge then. I shouldn’t be eligible for that right now) =3

Last but not the least, there is One Lovely Blog Award from Akhiz! Thank you so much for this. It honestly means a lot to me, brilliant writer! ^_^

Now this one requires me to mention 7 facts about myself and so does the Liebster and the Inspiring and Dragon awards! That makes 7*3+11=32. And I’ve 21 pending facts from Awards 2013 so 21+32 is 53 and we somehow subtract 4 and get 49 and take a square root and it’s back to 7 now. So I’ll post 7 facts about me! Yay.

  1. I suck at writing points about me.
  2. I procrastinate. That is why you’re seeing all of 2014’s awards in one go, and that too on the last day. But it’s kinda cool too, no?
  3. I am the kind of person who will shut the world behind her and draw. Or to shut the world behind her, draw. Music, paper, pencil. That is my catharsis.
  4. I write because I adore words. I know that sounds cliched but I can’t help using this line. I LOVE PENCILS.
  5. I. am. stuck
  6. Oh, I am studying literature and science right now and I plan on doing something huge in my life like running away to an island or something.
  7. I send text messages to God.


Nominations, though. I’d love to do that! For the Inspiring Blog Award, I choose Stacilys and Sonya. For the Liebster award I choose Amara. I nominate Zee for the Versatile blog award and Julie for the Inspiring and Lovely blog awards. And one lovely blog award plus a special shout-out to Meenakshi because she’s a FAB writer!

And finally, here’s to thank all of you for reading, writing, and well I appreciate your blog: Lala, Moniba, Cabrogal, Tayyeba, Sarosh, Suyash, Ali, Wajahat, Sonya, Zee, Sahrish, Reva, Zara, Becky, Richard, Andy, Akhiz, Hira, Hiba, Arindam, Harshda, Meenakshi, Miss Maqsood, Usman, Hamza, Himani, Hafsa, Mani, Mehreen, Fahaad, Sarwat, Hadia, Desiverbatim, Wajiha, Pamela, Paras, Staci, Ayesha K, Khoulah, Yasmeen aunty, RafiUllah, Samar, Sahil, AB, Mam Tanveer, and whoever made part of 2014. You get a special one:

Lol okay I know what this looks like, but it's just a quick way of telling you that your blog is appreciated.

Okay I know what this looks like, but it’s just my quick way of telling you that your blog is appreciated. What’s best is that it’s a fresh-from-oven type so nobody else has had it before PLUS it has no rules. Okay? YAY. πŸ˜€

Stay awesome and have a great year ahead!

Tataz. ❀

  1. WoW. Thats so wonderful. Congratulations Maria on so many awards for this year. Hope to see more than this next year πŸ™‚ You summed up all-in-one…Thats nice, and that too at the end of the year.

    Interesting to read your ‘words’, and never found them ‘cliche’. I liked this ‘why whine when you can shine’. Indeed….

  2. I send text messages to God.

    If you start getting answers you should send your phone to a shrink.

    BTW, I find the easiest way to spread light in a positive way is to attach one end of a wire to a powerful anode and stick the other end in my mouth.
