I am late at this but I believe it’s better late than never. I am so overwhelmed with four nominations for the Liebster award. I am so thankful for it. While it is really tough to write a post for each nomination, I hereby would club all the four nominations under one post and yes I would do justice for each one. When I say this you can be rest assured that this is one long post. 🙂
Something about the Liebster award :
The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster?
Liebster is a German word and means dearest.
Here are the rules for receiving this award:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!
Believe me the toughest task isn’t answering the questions the tagger has set for you but it is the list that you have to make of 11 random things about you.
So here I go. Dear readers 11 random thnigs about me are listed here, might not be that interesting but that is it.
1. I am a proud Indian girl
2. I am a banker who is working into IT – Information Technology (the Banking IT)
3. An extrovert in my head but an introvert in real, I speak of all the things in the world within the confined walls of my little brain
4. When in office I can communicate anythibng and everything, but the personal life situation sucks. I just can’t speak up there.
5. Blogging or in fact writing is my newly found love
6. I love reading but my memory is leaked and hence the data storage is faulty
7. I so badly want to own a yellow Volkswagen Beetle
8. I love travelling (Maybe that is the reason for me spending the hectic 3 hrs daily to and fro home to office to home)
9. I am at loss of words at this particular moment while writing these 11 random facts about me
