PotliBaba nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award, an accolade showered by fellow bloggers to show how much they love (reading) you. My gratitude to her. So, to continue this tradition, I am now supposed to pay it forward and shower my blog love on five of my most frequented blogs/ bloggers.
For the Liebster Blog Awards, I choose the following:
The Late Bloomer: Is also known as everyone’s favorite project. Cheryl-Ann is one of the few bloggers who actually still write, as opposed to curating, and has the most wonderful take on things. Quirky, wry, and insanely smart, she is my first Twitter crush and as comfortable to have around as a banana peel on a rainy day. Kidding. You can follow her on Twitter @ThatIrateLady and read her blog here.
Mehreen Kasana: The current leading lady of the motion picture that is my life online is undoubtedly Mehreen Kasana. She will charm you with her snark, bowl you over with her wit, and with no effort whatsoever, make you fall head over feet in love. Bitch, please – follow her on Twitter already: @mehreenkasana and get smitten here.
So Much Joy It Hurts: Kathleen has a mouth that will bring a man to his knees. When she opens it and speaks, women fall too. Her Tumblr blog is a glorious mishmash of the evocative, the indolent, and the passionate. She is a priestess of prose bringing to life the raw, wracking desire of words. Each time she speaks, you want to throw her roses. Follow Kathleen on Twitter @kissability and genuflect here.
Paagal Subtitle: I am not friends or even acquaintances with this person, but whoever they are, I want to have their babies. Catch the absolute cream of insane Indian films and their even more deranged subtitles. It gives me laughs every day. Yes, every day. God damn it, you’re funny, whoever you are. Spill guts here.
Explore: Maria Popova is a human attic. That doesn’t sound too glamorous, but believe me- attics are sexy places. She collects, curates and refreshes facts, knowledge, information and what’s new. For those in lust with wanting to know more, her blogsite, Explore, is a ‘discovery engine for meaningful knowledge, fueled by cross-disciplinary curiosity’. It is a brothel for mind sexy. You can follow Maria on Twitter @brainpicker and dive into her wonder blog here.
So that’s that. Now that i’ve picked you guys, it’s your turn to pass on the love. Here’s how you go about nominating people:
- Thank the one who nominated you by linking back – Can’t be bothered. I am tagging you guys on Twitter.
- Nominate five blogs with 200 or fewer followers – I didn’t bother looking at numbers.
- Let your nominees know by leaving a comment on their sites – I will smooch the shit of you peeps in person. How’s that?
- Copy and paste the award image on your site – Whatever.
