Alright, tell me one thing, what keeps you blogging, posting new content one after another? What? Did I start in a hurry? Well, in that case, let me ease the burden from you and clarify the point I am trying to make.
That’s it. That’s the whole reason we keep writing because there are certain people who keep reading. God knows why they read mine but either way.
What’s the point I am trying to make? Oh, you know, I am just being my usual know-it-all narcissist.
Jokes aside, there is a little thing that you might have observed here and there on the blogosphere. It’s called blogger awards. Or as I’d prefer to label them, “A Token of Appreciation,” but then, a token of appreciation doesn’t have the same impact as blogger awards.
What? This particular blogger was awarded something, they have to be good. Believe me, that’s the most common answer you’ll find. After all, it’s human nature.
Alright, critic aside, it feels good. When people read your word. In case of the blogosphere, your readers are also writers and as always, they have their own ingenious ways of showing their appreciation.
Writers are too full of themselves, aren’t they?
So, we have a little thing. We appreciate each other through awards. Technicalities aside, the point is rather simple, I am nominating you for an XYZ award because I like the way you write. I love the message that you’re conveying.
If you know me, then you know I do not approach things in the usual predefined ways.
Yeah, fine, I’m narcissist. Deal with it.
Versatile Blogger Award
Advocacy aside, recently I talked about doing the blog awards post. Maybe you remember it, maybe you don’t, but we’ll carry on the conversation nonetheless. So, I am about to do a bunch of posts where I’ll be nominating few bloggers whom I find worth exploring.
What I mean to say is simple. Think of this posts as awards, as a gimmick to increase site traffic or to increase followers. Or maybe I’ve run out of things to say and I’m finding pathetic ways to keep my site running.
Whatever the case, I have a simple statement for you.
These bloggers, they post something worth reading. At least better than Facebook feeds. They talk about serious issues, they talk about mundane issues, and sometimes they even talk ridiculous. But the point is, they show up again and again. They keep writing and they keep sharing.
Now for the unorthodox way, with the name of each nominee, you’ll find the link for few of their posts that I really enjoyed reading. To further complicate, or simplify depending on your perspective, they all follow one common theme. Once you’ve given all of them a brief read, maybe you’ll appreciate the effort.
I know that every one of you who follows me loves to read. Heck, you read my idiotic rants, don’t you? So, if you love my words, or at least like them, then maybe, by association, you’ll like these bloggers too.
If you love to read, believe me, I’ve booked you for the night.
Nominees, in no particular order.
But if you read the posts in the order, they’ll feel like a beautiful story. But that’s just my opinion.

We write between the lines.
Break the norm, my dearest. Tell me the bloggers you’d like for me to read, but do it with a twist. If you’d like a formal guideline, check the post of dharkanein.
And If you decide not to do anything, well, it’s alright. I’ll still appreciate your story.
