Long Long Time Ago I was crowned

My Crown * 2
I am ashamed, no utterly guilt ridden, of not having acknowledged the jewels I carry with me as a blogger, gifted to me by some fantastically gifted bloggers themselves! Yes it was a long time ago that a traveler and a writer thought kindly enough of me to have sent generous awards my way – Jim and Sulekha crowned me Meme and Stylish Blogger respectively. I was suddenly respected in Blogosphere and people started taking notice of me.

It was time to act a little uppity, talk like I know things and pretend to have the power to judge but that did not happen – what happened instead was life. It took me by the hand and sent me on a whirlwind. I have finally managed to control the reins of this fierce force and am planning to take up all those planned actions now. Please forgive my delay Jim and Sulekha and do accept my heartfelt gratitude for the honor.

Below is the pleasurable responsibility that I should have undertaken long long time ago:
