While I am nominating these few I am sticking my neck out… but guys and more importantly girls :mrgreen: these are just a few that stuck and stayed in mind and only those posts that I read… there are many that were good or many I didnt read… so no offence meant… and none should be taken !!! These are just a few gems that stuck an impression in my mind and I would love if they get an award !!!! simple !!!

  • Most Disciplined Blogger 

Ugich Konitari of Gappa !!! I simply love her posts and her dedication to blogging !!!!

IHM – No one else but just her… in my opinion !!!


There also are a few category for which I have no clue what and whom to nominate, basically categories that dont interest me :
