In The Spotlight

This is something very special for me. It's called a meme. Thanks to my great friend, Ev Nucci, I've been given this great opportunity to be part of this great team.

Ev Nucci at My Life is Murphy's Law (voted best blog of the day) tagged me for a meme which was started by Christy over at Christy's Coffee Break. Rules about this is pretty simple and you are able to find them right here.

This is a true friend who, from the very first day I visited her blog, made me feel appreciated and I can't forget that. Maybe in our last birth, we were best friends? Ev has got five blogs to her credit and owns a consulting firm, where does she get the will to do all these great stuff? In some ways we both share some great similarities, Ev has three beautiful boys and I have two boys and a baby girl. And we both have a child with special needs. Visiting her blog is so entertaining. It's filled with so much of laughter and a pride of a great mom and loving wife.

Christy on the other hand, is a visionary for me. Her blog is so friendly, which is sometimes hard to come by as most would want to associate with you based on 'how many links you have' or your page rank on your site.

These are the interview questions I chose :

When did you start blogging?
Well actually, it all started by chance. It's been two years and six months now since my youngest baby girl, Ayesha, was born with a syndrome referred to as Charge Associated. So after six operations thus far, financially my wife and I, were somewhat in a situation as most of our resources had drained out. Being the man of the house I had to get my hands dirty and leave my day job and rather concentrate on couple of other stuff that would eventually generate more for us to keep our family going.

And out of those avenues, one was to generate a future income through the Internet. So on March, 2007 I started my first blog - Nihal's Anything and Everything and another month later I began my second blog - Cars. And come July this year, I hope to launch another blog, specially for my baby girl, Ayesha. So basically, there you have it, it all started last two months ago. But what I didn't expect to get from the blogging world was the tremendous friendship which is out there.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want to have with you?
Wow, this is simple, all I need is Me, Myself and I. Ya, right!! First I would hope that it's an island like Phuket in Thailand (with no Tsunami's, of course). God, my wife and I simply love this island. Anyway, the first thing I would need is my family. Without them, I wouldn't have faced the obstacles that has thought me valuable lessons in life that in return has made me react to life in a more focused manner. I wouldn't have learned all this if I didn't have them.

The second, would be my parents and my immediate family. This is another part of my life which I can't be without. There are no words to express the gratitude I have for my immediate family. Sometimes, I believe that I am here today typing away, it's all due to their guidance and love that has never found an ending. So definitely, they're up there in my wish list.

And finally the third, my life would have been so different if I didn't get this. So, third on my list would be, the computer. Imagine this last three day's I was without a Internet connection, I felt so helpless and lost. I had so many things on my mind but just couldn't do anything about it, like missing out on things, example's like this; What lesson I missed from Ev's post today, has Bonnie posted another marvelous joke, did Christy come out with another fantastic idea, and so many others. So, being stranded on a island (hope they have good butler service with lot's of yummy food ...... all for free!!!) these are the three that would be tops on my wish list.

What is your worst quality?
A lot of us don't like talking about the bad in us, we would prefer to exhaust ourselves in expressing how good we are in this and that. This I think is a common face we humans go through.

Anyway, as for myself, I think my worst quality is waking up! Boy, I just love to sleep. I thank God for inventing sleep (ha ha, really). Once my head hits the soft warm pillow, I get into a world filled with so many wonderful dreams, so, that explains why I have a problem waking up?? I worry to wake up and reality hits right smack into my face and everything beautiful turns gloomy and dark.....

These are my friends, whom I will be tagging :

Fleurs Du Mall
Pond Perspective
The Talking Fingers on the Web
Under The Sun
My Life As It Is
Teri Teri Quite Contrary

This has been a great experience to share. Once again, thanks Eve. It's time now to see who will complete them as well. Don't worry you get to choose your questions and it's all there at Christy's Coffee Break. Have fun guy's !!

Nihal, that was really nice of you to say! Get the feeling I'm a wacky mom? You are a special friend and I believe in past who knows what we have been to each other! But I do believe in immediate connections and you just know who you connect with and who "gets" you!

You are a gem Nihal and I adore you! Love, Ev

Christy said...

Oh wow, your answers are amazing. I wish you the best with your websites. Thank you for participating in the meme, I appreciate it.

If you are looking to make an income blogging make sure to study Problogger's and Steve Palina's websites. (Just google search their names) I learned so much from them.

I added your Cars blog to Coffee Break, and let me know when you launch your new blog and I'll add that one too!

Hope you have a great night!
