Please Read the very Complicated No Award Policy and find out the Legal Consequences before nominating or after nominating. Nominate at your own riskย ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is really hard to say No, thank you.


I had the honourย of receiving ย the Dardos Award on 25.09.14

Nominated by : Mauvora ย ofย  www.malvaynaranja.wordpress.com/

Mauvora is one of my early friends that I made from Blogging 101 University.ย  A very encouraging person I must say.

Dardos Award

It is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

The rules that nominees must follow are the following:

1. Include the Dardos Award image.

Dardos Award
Dardos Award

2. Mention the blog that nominated me.

3. Nominate blogs and the reason you nominated them.

Mel’s Vittles :For the love of Food!

Mel is one of my very early friend on WP from blogging 101 University. She is the first one to add a bucket list to my bucket list collection. Helped me with my Facebook page. A great friend. A great cook and becoming a great food photographer too. (Check out Mel’s delicious blog ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Mojo Writin’ : Where word mojo keep risin’

She writes some super thrilling flash fictions, short stories, loves a bit of drama and a fighter! She has always been encouraging, supporting and commenting. Now its “Payback” time!! Thank you

Saya..D Poet.. : Random thoughtsโ€ฆpoems

Meet Sayali, the Poet. She shares some her poems and poetic thoughts. She has told me that she would change the amount of daily dose of motivation. I am hoping its for the good ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for your daily dose of motivation.

Life Confusions : A bit of this a bit of that

Meet Zee ( Its so unfair that I don’t know your full name, while you know mine!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Want to read something hilarious both posts and comments, something about music, want music quotes in your comment section, Now you know where to find! And yeah, here I am giving you the award that you were asking the other day :pย  Last but not the least thank for encouraging me.

Faith.. Literally.. : The Regular thoughts of an Irregular teenager

Meet Faith, She says she is an amateur writer, wannabe musician etc. She says to underestimate her writing. But what I am saying, quoting her own words “Donโ€™t Judge a Theme By Its Coverโ€ฆ It Just May Surpriseย you”. Because she writes some beautiful poems. Thank you for your kind mention of my blog.

Now I know, what they say is true. You receive more when you give more. The above mentioned people just made me realise that. I am grateful for all your presence here. Thank you.

That’s all for now,ย ย ย Dardos Award!

And other awards


I am more of a carefree kind of person and would love to run away from avoidable responsibilities. The above award is my first ever WP blog award. I received it before drafting my quite complex international policy on awards. The Policy from now onwards says Thank you, but No thanks to any future awards. I may mention your name if you insists on giving me any awards though ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  So Thank you for understanding me. And above all thank you for your love.

          1. A Space WithinDecember 14, 2014

  8. trablogNovember 22, 2014

    haha.. Now you know I am a careful person :p I think I wanted to say ‘not to let down your expectations’ then changed to ‘come up with..” Forgive me ๐Ÿ˜€ Arrggg.. I cant edit it too :p Anyway strike off “NOT” ๐Ÿ˜€

    Jithin, You Inspire me and so does your blog. So I have nominated you for the Inspiring Blogger Award. I hope you will accept it. I am attaching no rules except my appreciation. I am now aware about your no award policy – but I would still like to say I enjoy visiting your blog through this action

    If you feel like it, please pass on the award to bloggers you find inspiring โ€ฆKeep writing. Cheers!


    1. trablogNovember 22, 2014

      Thank you so much for nominating me for this award even after knowing about my no-award policy. It means a lot. And its a great responsibility to maintain this blog now, after realising that my blog inspires you. I will do my best not to come up with good contents.
      I will definitely acknowledge this award and possibly pass it on to some amazing bloggers. Thanks again for this award. I really appreciate this act of kindness ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. DNovember 16, 2014

    Well thank you for mentioning me in the page, such an honor ๐Ÿ™‚

    I see awards as a ticket to pay it forward to others who are new to the experience but at the same time respect those who had done their fair share of paying forward and just happy to receive them…

    Like I said before — it’s the thought that counts and like many first you were one of the first few to acknowledge me here so award or no award accept my gratitude ๐Ÿ™‚ and keep coming back to my site


    1. trablogNovember 16, 2014

      You are so sweet and kind. Thank you for your lovely comment ๐Ÿ™‚ I appreciate your grateful mind. I am glad to be able to meet you here. Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. lifeconfusionsSeptember 25, 2014

    Hahaha, Jithin you made me laugh with my more than kind introduction ๐Ÿ˜€
    First if it makes you feel any better nobody here knows my full name (you know to maintain anonymity ๐Ÿ˜› as I write stuff that can get me in trouble easily with people I know and I don’t want that.) and you know what’s a life without a bit of mystery, huh huh?? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Also you gave my comments too much attention which nobody else has ever before (Does that mean I should keep my parade of ‘Music related comments’ and make you feel uncomfortable?? ๐Ÿ˜€ )

    Thank you for the award which I jokingly asked for, I should ask more things from people…hmmm (money maybe? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) .On a serious note thanks a bunch, You have no idea how much I appreciate it <3
    Congratulations you truly deserved this ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wish you lots of love <3 (This is getting too long, Longest I've ever written on wordpress, You have the honor Mr.Jithin ๐Ÿ˜€ Just kidding ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    1. trablogSeptember 25, 2014

      The effect of surprise!! WP call it as verbosity :p (A new addition to my vocabulary) Anyway I will call you Zeenat :p
      I know I know how important is it for you to keep your anonymity!! Your life is too important than anything else agent Zee!! :p
      Well I love the way you lie ๐Ÿ˜‰ Keep on giving me more song sugggestions
      And Thank you. And you deserve it too.
      And thank you for honouring me with ‘verbosity’ I am so so grateful to you!! :p

      1. lifeconfusionsSeptember 26, 2014

        Oh God if you ever call me Zeenat, I’m gonna come there and rip you in shreds ! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Yes I can be gruesome ๐Ÿ˜› ) lol

        Agent Zee works ๐Ÿ˜Ž

        Oh If you want to check out some songs, refer to my category ‘A song a day keeps the sadness away’. I haven’t posted anything in it since I resumed blogging again after hiatus but you can still check it out if you’d like ๐Ÿ™‚

        And I’m assuming I’m gonna hear a lot about ‘Verbosity’ from now on… *sigh* lmao

    Thank you so much for the help. I made a custom menu and added it to the top and bottom of the page. Does that help? I am still playing around with overall design. So far I don’t have any other questions but if you don’t mind I wouldn’t mind asking you about it as I try and work my way through the “Blogging 101.”
    Thanks again

    1. trablogSeptember 24, 2014

      That’s cool. I can see that cool new menus up there. So you don’t have a side bar in your theme. Right? May be you should add Recent post widget too.
      Of course you can ask any other questions. I will answer you if I know it. ๐Ÿ™‚
