Celebrating Diversity in Blogging


Happy Me!

Acceptance speeches are not what I would call, my forte, I’ll openly admit that. But to disregard or ignore an Award such as, ‘Most Diverse Blog for 2016,’ an honour that has been bestowed on me by others, is disrespectful and that is something I would never do.

Particularly as readers of NepaliAustralian‘s blog  took the time to nominate and vote for my blog.  It is important to be grateful and respectful, regardless of what a reader’s opinion might be of “awards” in the blogosphere. Because, besides the lovely affirmation that my humble ramblings are in fact, “reader-worthy”, what I think NepaliAustralian’s blog awards are doing, is introducing like-minded people to new blogs that they may not easily find via their readers. By the looks of her followers, many agree.

And I do try to discuss and showcase a range of subjects here, so Yay for Diversity! I will try to live up to the title: ‘Most Diverse Blog for 2016!!!’

So here goes…

  1. Thanks to the other nominees for NepaliAustralian Blog Awards, for without them, I would not have had the award bestowed on my blog.
  2. Extra big thank you to NepaliAustralian for launching and coordinating the awards and sending me around the web checking out new and interesting blogs.
  3. A extra extra big thank you to that person who nominated me. I suspect I know who it might be, but do not really know for sure. How more gracious can you get than an selfless gift of nominating anonymously?!
  4. Finally, the biggest thank you goes to those who saw something of value in my blog read my blog, and voted for me! It is most appreciated.


You can find the full list of Blog winners here. Congratulations to all of them. Perhaps your blog will be amongst them next year?

Something to Ponder About, perhaps?

    1. That is so kind of you to say that, Carol. It is very much appreciated. I don’t feel at all talented, just do what feels fun for me. Sometimes I think of the adage: Jack of all trades , master of none. But then I don’t feel like I can do just any old ‘trade’ – it has to spark my interest I think. Thanks for commenting.
