I know it took me a while to get around to writing this post, but for what its worth here’s the acceptance speech…

Kuzco getting ready - Musings by Megha

Brace yourselves! Here it comes.. (#1)

*Clears throat*

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! *Mic screeches*

I would like to begin by acknowledging all the wonderful bloggers who have deemed me worthy of such honors (yes, it’s plural) – THANK YOU! How did you manage to fall for my charms?! *Bewildered*

To my readers – Thou art more than a daily statistic to me. You continue to amaze me with your persistence! I want you to know, by reading my musings, you validate my madness everyday and encourage me to be more than what I’d ever hoped to be – a confirmed whack job. Here’s an extra dollop of ❤ for you!

To the people in my life – You inspire me with your quirks, idiosyncrasies and wisdom. You are the fodder for this blog *Does that make you feel used? Well, here’s a half-a$$ed apology!*

Lastly, I would like to thank me, myself and I – Blogger, editor, graphic designer, marketing & PR personnel all rolled into one hot mess. Without my shameless optimism, this blog wouldn’t have been possible *Hey! Everyone deserves a pat on the back – even if you’re patting your own!*

Win - Musings by Megha

Yasss! *pees in excitement*

Now, here are 5 randumb facts about me:

  1. I design leather handbags, belts, wallets etc. Sometimes, I manage to amaze even myself with the stuff I create!
  2. If life had gone another way, I would’ve been a nuclear scientist… On second thought, in the interest of planetary safety, I’m glad life didn’t go that way! *Reader breathes a sigh of relief*
  3. In a parallel universe, I’m a musical marvel. I have always wanted to shatter glass with my vocal chords. *Inner diva starts vocal warmup*
  4. Incorrect capitalization bothers the heck out of me! *Borderline OCD in the house*
  5. Almost everyone calls me Encyclopedia.

Share the ❤

Here are some amazing bloggers that TOTALLY deserve your attention. I enjoy reading their blogs and hope you’d too!

  1. Dear Lily June. Her words could bring you to tears, make you smile or leave you vulnerable, by exposing old wounds that’ve not quite healed. Every post is a piece of art. It keeps me coming back for more.
  2. Life Confusions. Gut-wrenching (mental) visuals accompany posts that take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. A very realistic way to look at life.
  3. Crossed Eyes and Dotted Tees.The self-appointed grammar police in the blogosphere. Her “Three Mistakes That Make Me go Arghh!” sections are to die for! She might sound daunting, but Ellie’s a sweetheart *She magnanimously forgives all my grammatical tresspasses*
  4. Ben’s Bitter Blog. I can safely guess that Ben’s going to be quite a bear about being nominated for yet another award. Ben, if you’re reading this – This is NOT an award nomination! Just a simple acknowledgment to let you know that your grumpiness leads to giggles and smiles (Despite your most valiant efforts to do the polar opposite).
  5. The Red Bag and Purple Shoes. Stunning photography accompanies this travelogue. Discover quaint towns, countries and places of interest from the eyes of (I quote) ‘a Taurian explorer.

Thank you!

  3. Hearty congrats! Here’s a question, Encyclopedia, that has recently been bugging me. I write for an online zine and they asked me to always capitalize ‘Internet’. My default is a small ‘i’, as in ‘internet’. Research told me a lot of people fall on both sides of that discussion. What do you think?

    • Great question, Jacqui! I know there are conflicting views on the subject. I, for one, follow (and prefer) the lowercase version of the word (Unless, some grammar check/autocorrect has sneakily corrected my text behind my back)

      In my opinion, the first and most obvious point is that “internet” isn’t a proper noun (yes, it does stand for a unique entity but not a physical place – so for me it just doesn’t qualify – some might disagree), so why would we need/want to capitalize it? It’s simply a medium that we use to get our point across just like mobile, television etc. So do we go about capitalizing all those words? Err, No!

      Methinks, it has more to do with its origins, where it began as THE thing as opposed to what it has become – a way of life. Correct me if my facts are incorrect, but didn’t we capitalize Telegraph in the beginning? So, maybe it IS okay to lose the capitalization due to common usage.

      I hope I haven’t opened a can of worms! 😉
