To tell the truth, it really boosts my ego. It feels nice to be appreciated, especially in writing although I must admit that the spelling and grammar is mostly taken care by Microsoft Word and still I use a lot of brains to keep the blog alive.
I have been tagged by both to name five thinking bloggers. Bloggers who make you think. I guess it means that they give a different perspective to issues, people and situation. I have read some of the post and thought “Aaise bhi soch sakte hai”
As I have been tagged by Ardra and Ano. Speaking of the tag, do read thier post about me. What to say, I am great and I didn’t even know it. By the way, I am just being modest here and have a stupid grin on my face.
I was thinking of extending the list to 10 but being true to the tag, here goes the five.
I have known Oz since he started blogging in Sulekha. He writes stories, funny articles and reviews. He is the brain behind movie fanatic site, Passionforcinema. He has taken his passion for writing and movies way beyond the normal rambling. His first novel, “The MBA gang” got published recently and is available on Amazon and the publisher’s site.
Raj from Plus Ultra
Some of his article are really thought provoking. A satarical and a funny view at looking at situations and people. His R.I.P series and his converstaion with his daughters gives an amusing look at his thoughts.
Her PJs are what I like the most. I read her post on a boring day at office. It helps me stay awake in office and smiling too. Her musing at life and look at life in a different light or angle or whatever makes me smile. I guess she must be smiling at herself now.
A post a day what she writes. Everyday writing on some ordinary stuff and then making it look extraordinary. Talking about issues, life, and her daughter, she
makes writing look so easy. Her post leaves me with lingering thoughts
Bombay or Mumbai is what he is addicted to. Talks about life in Mumbai and life in Mumbai. Also writes on Mumbai Matter about everything right or wrong about Mumbai.
