One thing !!!!! There is a bunch !!!

  • People don’t really reading the post and just commenting thing like “nice blog” or “awesome”
  • People who don’t interact with other bloggers, the moment they receive their follow back they just forget about your existence.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

When “The oversmart” or “I know it all” type people start speaking.

A decision you made you’re grateful for now?

Creating this blog.❀

Relax, sleep, eat repeat 😴 πŸ˜‹

Shelly’s Questions-

What is the first thing you do each morning?

Unplugging my phone from charger.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

How long does it take for you to write a blog post,edit and post it?

Ummm for stories, I think and create a story in my mind, for about 3 to 4 days and finally the day when I successfully get rid of my procrastination πŸ™ƒ basically when my blog stats start to fall, i start typing, collecting pictures, making featured images and editing, this all takes me about 4 hours with short breaks in between.

What is the thing you fear the most in the blogging world?

Plagiarism‘ like this thing completely terrorizes me, 😐😐 even the thought of someone stealing my content for which I really worked hard for, is enough to make me cry…. I have read about many people experiencing this problem here and I tried to check if my content is also being stolen but I am not able to do it as I have a fear of ‘what if’ I will find someone stealing, what will i do?? So I can’t do it but if any of you guys ever find this, please let me know πŸ™πŸ™

If your blog had expiration date, what would it be? And why ?

Ummm maybe if I got Job or something πŸ€” if the job demands my whole attention and I couldn’t be able to manage my work and personal life…. maybe then I have to shut this place off…. till then Enjoy πŸ˜‰

How has your blog transitioned over its lifetime?

A lot!!!! I started my blog on 24 July 2020 and now about almost a year later , I have achieved 500 followers, written more than 50 posts and received immense amount of love and support from all of you guys πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Who is your blogging bestie? And why ?

Well no one as such bestie but I have made great friends here like Shahrin, Poorwa, Pavithra, Riya, Pannaga, Anushka, Ananya, Moksha di, Nehal, Cindy and ofcourse you Shelly.❀❀❀


Moksha di of Happy Panda nominated me for this award, she is a fantastic blogger, she likes to travel, so you can read her beautiful travel blogs, she also writes short stories, poem, book reviews and gives blogging advice. Do follow her blog…

Moksha di’s Questions-

If you had a choice between – living forever OR living till the age of 60 but being able to see snippets of the future – which would you choose and why?

Living till the age of 60 but being able to see snippets of the future, I really don’t want to be 100 years old and be dependent on others even for my basic needs, so I just want to complete a average human life span and then just say goodbye πŸ‘‹ and to be able to see snippets of future is just a cool addition so, why not!!!

What would your strategy be to escape a zombie apocalypse?

There are two strategies in my mind

  1. Hide!!!Hide!!! Hide!!! Until the help arrives or i die from starvation
  2. Just stand up, go towards any of them and just get bitten by them(yes, you read that right) just get bitten,be over with that πŸ˜‰ you want to kill me?? Just do it man!!! (Incase you haven’t noticed, I am a coward)
This is so me !!!!

What is the pettiest thing you’ve done?

My friend just pissed me off on something, so i changed her pairing (I was the class monitor) for a group project with the girl she really don’t likeπŸ˜†πŸ˜†, it was a very fun week….

If you had to change one thing about yourself – what would you change?

My eternal love with Procrastination. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

What did you believe as a kid that turned out to be totally wrong/untrue/silly?

Okay so this used to be a very common rumor during my childhood days and everyone believed it, so it is- if you mix pencil shavings in hot boiling milk it will turn into eraser!!! Stupid!!! I know right, but everyone used to believe that…… ofcourse I was not able to do a experiment by myself because my mom will never let me spoil a glass of milk πŸ₯›…. let me know in comments if anyone of you heard this one?? πŸ€”πŸ€”

If you were offered a considerable amount of money to sell your blog and your blog identity – would you accept?

Yes !!! Ofcourse!!! I will accept the money, create a new blog with better features this time as it will be a paid site and bounce back again πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ The person is taking my blog not my art…plus it will give me opportunity to create a better one,


My nominations- As always this is an open nomination whoever is interested can answer the above mentioned awesome questions and can officially be a Dazzling BloggerπŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

    Hope you stop procrastinating. I’m waiting to read your next story. (Just do what you want.)

    One request : Please ask me any doubt or query, you have about my blog. Some people don’t like it.

    1. Thank you so much lokesh, you are always there for me❀❀❀
      I am glad you liked my answers 😊

      Some people don’t like what??? Your blog?? I couldn’t get it

  4. I always love reading your responses! You’re such a fun person, and a little crazy… I mean who wants to just be bitten by a freaking zombie?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ And procrastination? Girl, we must be related! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ get bitten and let’s just get over with this 🀣 πŸ˜‚ you want to kill me just kill me, no need to freak me out beforehand πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Haha only my falling blog stats can motivate me to come out of this
      “I am a lazy girl in my procrastinating world” 🎢🎢

  5. I had never heard that rumour about making eraser from milk and pencil shavings! And the parts about blogging that you don’t like are so relatable. I feel the same way. Loved reading your responses. Congratulations on all the awards. Here’s to many more

    1. Really,!!! It was a very famous rumor here, did you listen this one
      “If you put a coin on railway track πŸ›€ several years later with the continuous passing of trains, the coin will turn into magnet 🧲 πŸ˜‰ ” This one was another famous one …
      Anyways Thank you so much for reading ❀❀❀

  6. Now that’s a whole lot of awards. Congratulations, Di!!✨
    Same thoughts on black cat blue seaπŸ˜‚
    And the phrase, ‘selectively social’ describes me the best. Hi5!πŸ™ŒπŸ˜

  7. Hahah facing up to zombies and asking them to kill you doesn’t seem like cowardice. πŸ˜›
    Hahahaha I love hearing people’s petty stories since I am very petty myself. πŸ˜›
    Pencil shaving in milk – WHATTTTT?!?!?!! Never heard of this. 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
    Hahah congrats on all your awards!!!! Totally deserve them. ❀️

    1. Really,!!! It was a very famous rumor here, did you listen this one
      β€œIf you put a coin on railway track πŸ›€ several years later with the continuous passing of trains, the coin will turn into magnet 🧲 πŸ˜‰ ” This one was another famous one …
      Well if it is not cowardice then it is laziness for sure πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  8. Congrats Di!
    And yes I even tried mixing pencil shavings and milk to invent my own eraser when I was a small innocent childπŸ˜… But it was not my fault, my siblings told me that so I thought what’s wrong with doing an experiment 🀣

    1. Finally someone who has listened this one…. I was beginning to think that my friend circle is the only crazy one πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      So you invented it or not?? Don’t say no, my heart will break πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    2. Oh my, poorwa πŸ˜‚
      Even I’ve heard this rumor going around when I was a child but never ever believed it but you guys… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. This is why I love reading award posts – this was such a fun and enjoyable read and I liked getting to know more about you. First off, congratulations on all of the nominations! Second, I completely relate to all of your blogging pet peeves – nice comments going in spam and people not reading posts but leaving basic comments is so annoying. Sometimes I write heartfelt posts about really serious experiences in my life and someone in the comments is just like: “Cool!” XD, we have the same zombie apocalypse strategy. I honestly feel like the fear of the zombies would be worse than anything else so I’d just want it to end as soon as possible. Ayy, London is on your travel list! Maybe we’ll both be there at the same time in the future, who knows?

    1. Haha London trip will be great ❀❀❀
      Yeah IKR, cool post, nice blog i mean just don’t read man if you don’t want to….
      Haha zombie one , we are so similar then πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Thank you so much for reading ❀❀❀

  10. Ahhh! The pencil eraser thing. Never heard of it πŸ˜‚ and I hate know it all people too, except for Hermione 😁 Congo on all the tags and awards di! You are a great friend tooπŸ’•

    1. I guess only Poorwa and Pavithra have listened this one here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thank you so much for reading ❀❀❀

      1. Some of my childhood friends told me to put pencil shavings in hot water. I even tried that and heart broken after not getting eraser. πŸ˜‚ But This is the first time I hear about pencil shaving and milk. If I tried this with milk, I can’t imagine how my mom reactsπŸ˜† and this brought back my old memories. ❣️

      2. Haha same !!, That’s why it remains with me as a theory, couldn’t be able to do practical πŸ™ƒ πŸ™‚

  11. β€œEraser making” I had never heard of it before πŸ˜…πŸ˜…it was fun to read through.

    I too unplug my phone from charger first πŸ˜‚my husband keeps telling me to not do that .. 😬😬😬it’s a sign of addiction he says
