Monday musings!

You discover a blog… go awwwwwwwww reading post after post. Then write a heartfelt comment… a longish one at that. Wait for the comment to be approved and to appear on the blog! Wait over… the comment appears; but mystery of mysteries… there’s no reply to the said comment! Not even an acknowledgement of sorts 😦 This, when there is a reply to all the comments before and after the said comment. This … is whatΒ stupefiesΒ me!!

And yes.. this has happened to me more than once! I totally fail to understand why!! 😯 I dont think i’m unreasonable in expecting a reply. Am I? If so, please someone enlighten me! And.. though i hop over to read their blogs once in a while, i do not leave a comment… even when the post is too good or too touching. May not be the right thing to do 😦 But sigh! some things do put me off terribly… at times πŸ˜•

But thankfully, this is justΒ minusculeΒ in comparison to all the support and friendship that i have received in this blog world. Seesh!! Then, what am i doing dwelling on the trivial stuff? Not me… not done… not at all! 😳

So here i go… and cheer myself up πŸ™‚ Presenting to me… Β 2 lovely blog awards! The blogger buddy award from Sweet Swaram πŸ™‚ … yay! glad to be your buddy Swaru!!

Thanks Swaram πŸ™‚

And Beautiful blogger award from the lovely Swati of MyAmusingMind!! thanks a ton Swati πŸ™‚

Thanks Swati πŸ™‚

And in true blogger spirit, spreading the cheer to these beautiful people who enrich my life with their tales and creations!

* Shankari of Naradtales

* Momo’s ma of Mehek – the fragrance in our lives

* Trishna of My Sunshine

* Shilpa of Smile…it costs you nothing πŸ™‚

* My sis 1 who hasΒ recentlyΒ startedΒ commenting here! She doesnt write… just reads my blog… encourages me… and gives me some fodder for Adi posts πŸ™‚ So..she is a blogger too πŸ˜‰ wat say?

So, its three cheers to blogging and yay to all the bloggers who spread the love and cheer πŸ™‚

P.S: I hope Swaram and Swati wont want to whack me for such a late response to their lovely gesture πŸ˜‰

  1. Priya, u said all that I feel abt the comments sometimes. I mean, ppl take time out to leave comments and u need to show that u value them πŸ™‚ I lurk on some such blogs too πŸ˜› I value them as writers but if there’s no interaction, I better nt be a part of the comment section πŸ™‚

    Thanks for putting them up here πŸ™‚


    1. thanks Swaram! feels good to know that m not the only one who feels this way πŸ™‚
      And i admire you for this very fact… you make it a point to reply to all the comments… which is not very easy given that you get so many comments on each post!


      1. I guess Swaram should have a separate category in Avant Garde Bloggers awards “Most responsive and punctual blogger” πŸ˜€
        What say Priya???


  2. Am I happy? Am I excited ?

    No No…. am sooper dooper excited πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ :D…. See you can see me smiling from end to end….. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Since, these awards are special, they will be put up in a special post too ….
    So, wait and watch for the suspense… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  3. Aww thank you!!I really appreciate it!
    And it bothers me also,when a comment goes unanswered.Thats why I keep comment moderation on my blog..and don’t approve them,till I know,i will be able to reply,right away!:)


  4. Oh wow! What a post to wake up to πŸ™‚ Thanks so much Priya!!!

    I am totally with you on the not commenting bit. I bloghopped for close to 3 years before I started writing my blog. When I started bloghopping initially, I would comment like crazy on an post(I still do..but that’s another story πŸ™‚ and wait like the Pavlonian dog for a response from the author of the post. Sometimes I would get a response and I would be hooked onto that blog and sometimes there would be no response. I do still go and read once in a while, but there is no enthu left to comment there!


    1. You are welcome Shankari πŸ™‚ Its been a pleasure knowing you!’ve also had your share of unpleasant comment episodes 😦


  5. I guess people who have more than 100 comments for each post find it difficult to reply to each. but yes, if I’m new to the blog, I feel a bit upset if my presence isn’t acknowledged. I usually lurk after that too πŸ˜€


  6. Congratulations on ur awards πŸ™‚
    N i just checked ur other blogs too. πŸ™‚ yay to testing. N i loved the birth sites of ammu n adi πŸ™‚


Thoughts? I'd love to hear :)
