An Award - A Fluttering Butterfly

http://shailsnest.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/butterfly-award.jpg

Manju left a comment the other day that she had a surprise for me on her blog. Wow!!! - I thought, what could it be?

It turned out to be a bloggers award, "The Butterfly Award - For the coolest blog I ever knew". This also happens to be my first.

Thank you very much Manju. It has been a pleasant surprise.

This is supposed to be the coolest blog........award. I confessed to Manju that I do not think it is cool and that I am my worst critic. I am quite unsure of myself when it comes to writing a blogpost. A million ideas flutter through my mind and I just cannot make up my mind on what I want to write about.

This pressure builds up as a week passes by and then I start getting desperate. This desperation is made worse as I watch with a sense of admiration some of my blogger colleagues churning out a post everyday or once in two days. I marvel at their choice of subjects, I am amazed at their research, I admire their committment to writing and I am quite overwhelmed at their learning and ability to express themselves so clearly.

I then sit determined to complete a post and lo the next hour is like magic. Thoughts arise effortlessly and words flow like a river and they all fall in place and the next post is done. In comparison, my efforts seem disjointed.

So, when this blog is viewed as cool by some fellow blogger, I am thrilled and accept the accolade with grace.

Thank you once again.

Mavin, a fluttering butterfly looks pretty and attracts. But it is the caterpillar that sticks around does its job thoroughly. Become one and you will find your blogging output jump!

For now, be happy that you have got an award. Not many of us got one!

Congrats Mavin. The fact that you simply blog without any preplanned idea makes reading more wonderful.
