Mystery Blogger Award

Sometimes unexpected things bring a pleasant surprise. I have always said that love from my followers always keep me going and I had an off-day when I saw this message from Bookworm Muse that I was nominated for this Mystery Blogger Award, it boosted my morale. Though I don’t look for validations, when I get it in unexpected times, it brings a whole lot of happiness with it.

I want to thank Bookworm Muse for nominating me!

So here is what the award is about.

“It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.”

The rules are:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • You have to nominate 10 – 20 people.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).
  • Share a link to your best post(s).

Three things about myself:

  • I am a pure vegetarian and I can survive my entire life with ice cream.
  • I am a lazy person when it comes to doing things for me.
  • I generally do not like to take the help from someone, unless it is the last straw I had to pull out.

Here are the questions I had to answer:

  1. Why did you start your blog?

Well, my first blog was Wattpad Review Corner. I actually wanted to start a blog to put my thoughts out and make my writing a regular practice and hence I started it because, during those periods, I was a big fan of Wattpad. Though the stories are at par with published authors, there wasn’t any website dedicated to review the stories on it. Hence I came up with the idea to start a blog for it.

2. What’s the one thing in your life that you wish you could change?

There isn’t anything I will change as each and every experience I had shaped me into the person I am and I believe that this is exactly where I need to be, at this point of time.

3. What are your pet-peeves?

When it is a humorous comment or a joke and the other person takes it seriously and actually starts explaining it again and again, I just want to run out of there. Some can’t take a funny joke, which doesn’t insult them or anyone, just a normal joke, but they can’t understand any funny thing.

4. If you were given the chance to get that one thing you had always wanted and the chance to travel the world, which would you choose and why?

I would travel the world. It is one of my dreams that is yet to be fulfilled.

5. What is the one goal you didn’t mind not achieving?

Not becoming a great Engineer which was my goal a few years back, but my goals have now changed and I am happy that I did not become a great Engineer.

My nominees:

Ken Thinks Aloud

Dynamic Philosophies

Double Edge Web

Rant and Reason

Moonlit Pieces

Tanja Britton Writer

Metal Flower Maker

Ms Toy Whisperer

Questions for my nominees:

1. What gives you a thrill everytime you blog?

2. What is the one thing which you will not exchange for anything in the world?

3. What is one daily ritual that you will not miss out?

4. Name one characteristic of you which no one knows about.

5. What, according to you, is the best thing that happened in your life?

All the best for my nominees!

Cheers!

I Found My Love – Writing 

Life is full of surprises and we often surprise ourselves when faced with challenging situations. I was put in one such situation and my decision surprised and terrified me. It was the excitement  filled terror that took over me! 

I’m planning to leave to full time job as an Engineer to do something that I love the most – to write! 

Yes! I’m leaving my high paid job in a global multi million dollar group to pursue my passion. 

When I think about it, writing has always been a part of life. Time and again, I go back to writing. But, due to the ‘mainstream’ path that the Indian society considers, my dreams of becoming a writer was buried. 

I kept it just as hobby, something to go back to at the end of the day. 

But what happens when those nights of writing excites you more? 

What if you catch yourself dreaming about sentences and content during your day job? 

What do you do when all you want to badly do is write an article on that fresh thought you got, immediately, like right now in middle of the day job? 

It’s when you realize that enough is enough. I am going to take this decision. 

I have found my love. 

Though it scares me and sometimes pains me physically to think about all the obstacles I have to face, I’m ready to give it a try because that’s how badly I want it. I really believe that my passion will win at the end and I’m ready to do all it takes. 

P.S: I’m now seeking any freelance or full-time assignments or jobs as a content writer or editor. To see my samples, check out the link – my writings. If you need any freelance articles or come to know of any opportunities please do contact me at lakshmipadmanaban05@gmail.com 

Thank you all for your support! ☺ 

Much-needed Change 

People are generally on the look out for change; for something different which keeps them engaged and on their toes. 

Though at the beginning, changes will be welcomed, as time goes on, once the very interesting work would become a boring one if it is steady and stagnant. 

Even when sometimes change is not welcomed, in the bigger picture, change is what is needed to sustain in life and keep it interesting.  

Change doesn’t necessarily mean the growth in life although that is what people generally hope for. Change can even be in reverse direction. Any kind of change makes people work towards something; drives and motivates people to set a goal or a target and strive to achieve it. 

A constant life might be what people say they need. But only when being in a constant life will one realize that change is what they actually need and starts to secretly and desperately yearn for a change – in any direction. 

Embrace the change in life; it is what makes you look forward to tomorrow. It is what brings all the unknown emotions to the surface. It is what reveals the true colors and real intentions of individuals. 

Change has the capability to bring out the hidden qualities, good and bad thoughts, real feelings and heartfelt emotions. 

The mother of all reasons – change – does more than you realize. Constant change must be the only constant in your life to move forward, to relinquish stagnancy, to push aside the boring life. 

My first tryst with WedAmor

After some break with writing articles for other websites, I’m back again with my first article in ‘WedAmor’ about…. *hold your breath*…. Royal Palace Wedding! 

I believe that, the best characteristic of a writer is to write about any topic given without letting our personal opinion cloud it. And that is how I have written this article and I hope that it reflects the same! 

This article is mainly about the cool things that you get to experience if you have a royal palace wedding! 

It’s been online just for a few minutes, but I’m already excited!

Welcome to The Thoughtful Rants! 

Hello guys! 

A big welcome and a thank you for viewing this post from The Thoughtful Rants! ☺ ☺ ☺ 

Basically, I’m a writer who writes online articles and a blogger where I’m currently blogging about the review of stories in Wattpad. And in addition to that, I started an Instagram account where I post images of my self composed quotes on it under the same name(@the_thoughtful_rants). So in addition to the insta account, I wanted to start a blog where I can also post those quotes and some extra titbits and poetry and stories and what all ranting I wanna just get it out. 

You can expect like 10 quotes a single day or just a quote in a week, because these are my innee rantings, getting out of my system. But I promise you that, all these rantings will be very relatable,  simple and interesting to get you hooked up on my blog, hopefully! 

An advance thank you to all my followers and people who are going to support me in my writing! ☺
