Meet and Greet #1

Hello, my beauties! I realise it’s been quite some time since I’ve sat down to talk with you, one on one, that is. Except, of course, to ask really pressing questions about proper skin care. I love how you rallied behind water, the true elixir of life, and solved my problem in a jiffy! I am eternally grateful.

Another thing I am really thankful for is the recent upsurge in the number of followers on this blog. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to have people from across the world take out valuable time to read my writings and be kind enough to drop a thoughtful comment. It is a beautiful lesson in humility for me. I will never be able to thank you enough.

However, this recent trend also made me think how little I know of you and vice versa. My ‘about’ page is way out of date. Sadly, I am also unable to read as many blogs as I would like to.

So, I’ve tried to come up with a solution to this conundrum. Let’s treat this post as a little meet and greet, shall we? Would you be game for it and leave a comment telling me a little something about yourself? Nothing highly revealing or personal (in the nature of details). Just a tiny insight into what passions drive you, what you find to be most interesting, what you like to read/write about, etc. Also, you, in turn, can ask me something if you want. Just remember to keep it clean and casual. I hope the ones who participate will also be kind enough to visit the blogs from other comments on this post. If there happen to be any, that is (trust me to always be overly optimistic, duh!).

That’s all for now. I hope to hear from you soon!

As always, thank you for reading.

Love,

Varnika.

Giving Thanks – Meet and Greet Edition

Hello!

I know Thanksgiving is over but I couldn’t post at that time due to an exam I had slated for today. Yet, I have so much to be thankful for that I did not want to let this opportunity pass me by. So, here it goes.

Firstly, thank you and THANK YOU! I’ve reached 425 followers today (does a happy jig). It might not seem like a lot to many of you on here, but, believe me, I’d never even considered it to be a real possibility a couple of months ago. What overwhelms and inspires me is the amount of love and appreciation showered by each one of you on all my posts. I look forward to reading each and every comment every morning. I try my best to respond to them all. If I’ve somehow not interacted with you yet then I hope you’d be able to forgive it as an inadvertent omission. The fact that so many bloggers and writers, whom I ardently admirer, take the time to say a few words about my writings is very humbling. So, today, my first and foremost, and intently heartfelt gratitude goes out to each and every one of you who reads, likes, comments on and encourages what, untill very recently, had been a baby steps like foray into the beautiful and astounding world of writing.

On this joyous occasion today, I am thinking of hosting a virtual Meet and Greet. Only if a sizeable number of you are interested though! If you intend to participate, here’s how it will go about –

  1. In the comments section down below, please introduce yourself in one sentence.

  2. Introduce your blog and the topics you like to write on along with the nature of your writings, for eg., Poetry, prose, flash fiction, essays, etc.

  3. Post the link to your blog.

  4. Post a link to a post that you’d like people to read. I would definitely be visiting every blog and every post mentioned here.

  5. Please put all of the above in one wonderful comment.

I promise to get back to each and everyone of you. I’m hoping all the participants would go visit each other. At the end of this week, I’ll do a shout-out session too!

I eagerly await the chance to get to know you, your blogs and to read your lovely posts!

Since I’m asking you to tell me a little about yourself, it’s only fair to even it out. So, just for fun, I’m throwing in the chance to ask me any one question that you might want me to answer!

Thank you for reading and for participating!

Love,

Varnika.
