My Award Closet is dated :)


I used to spend time on blog awards some years ago. And then life played up and I lost interest in a lot of stuff. One such was the gusto of blogging for fun. The need to please kind bloggers who send award nominations ceased and I just started to let those nominations die down a natural death. I just was too pressed for time, and couldn’t do justice with the bloggers who send nominations with the best interest of spreading the word. I

Most of these fun awards were exchanged 2011ish. And yet, it has remained idle as widgets on the side of my blog page.

This is the first day of this brand new year 2016, and I wanted to do something different. The day is almost over and nothing different has occurred. So here I am. Being an active force in making change happen – at least on Amira the blog 🙂

I want to have a new look for my blog. I want to get rid of some clutter. Nonetheless, I am a keeper of token gifts and souvenirs. Hence, I am just reshuffling the stuff. Getting the awards from the side widgets to this page for safe keeping 🙂

Dated 1 Jan 2016


These tokens, these awards, keep coming.
Quite a nice welcoming thought really –
Come conditioning, it has to go out to many more.

This page I dedicate to the tokens, the images, the awards
This page I dedicate also to the lovely bloggers who gifted me with those.
This page I dedicate also to my nominees,
[Why i choose, how i choose, there is a reason
so i make this page just for that reason]


This is the last set of Awards I accepted. For more on my thoughts, nominations, answers to blog acceptance, and whatnot follow on to the Awards acceptance speech at
Trophy Closet …

Here I will just reproduce the Award images.

  5. The unforgivable metal birdie
    > … It maybe a creative idea gone wrong on the part of SAARC organizers to come up with the idea of statues which is scorned by everyone across the board.

    His eyes had a lot to say.The sun set behind

    Right now, the only logical answer I can dream up is your habits are so pleasurable and addicting that it’s far easier to let junior(s) take part with you than try to stop yourself. Is that it?? Shameful…
