The #Cherished Blogfest

This post deviates from my usual ones, which are strictly fiction. I have not posted anything for three months due to an observation I made one day while stuck in traffic.  It led to a philosophical quandary that still plagues me to date. I hope to pull out of it sooner.

Meanwhile, my wonderful friends over at Blog Friends First, led by no other than Damyanti Gosh of Daily Writes have organized the Cherished Blogfest.

Cherished is the word!

The Cherished Blogfest is about the most cherished object in your possession. I once came across an assertion that life is but memories. Without memories there is no life. Memories trigger our emotions and we interact by our emotions. The things that we love, that we cherish the most, that we hate and loathe, and fear—we treat them as such because of the memories attached to them, invested in them.

The Cherished blogfest is NOT just for the members of the BFF: Peter Nena, Damyanti Gosh, Dan Antion, Sharukh Bombat, Paul Ruddock, and Cheryl KP.

We would also love you to tell us about the objects that spark off your fondest memories.

Therefore, for the Cherished Blogfest, we invite you to talk to us about one of your cherished objects. Tell us what it is, post a picture of it if you like, and tell us why you cherish it.

Keep your posts to a maximum of 500 words, and join us on the 24th, 25th and 26th of July 2015 in sharing memories, emotions, information.

Above all, join us in making new connections and renewing old ones. Visit the blogs of the cohosts and follow them, even as you increase your own followers and readers.

Add your name and blog link in this Linky List, sign up for the Cherished Blogfest, and share your cherished memories on 24th, 25th and 26th of July 2015.

Place the badge on your sidebar, and help us spread the word on social media.

    Hello, Peter! Though I seem to be late to be able to participate in the Blogfest, have added my name to the list, and have written about my Most Cherished… Person!

    Regards and All the Best! 🙂

    • Peter Nena says:

      It’s not really late. Nearly a month to go. Thank you for your interest and for visiting my blog.

      • swamiyesudas says:

        Thanks for that. You notice that I wrote a piece and put it on Your comments section; is that the way to do it? Or do I have to do something further?

      • Peter Nena says:

        I noticed. But I didn’t know that’s the post you intended for the blogfest. If it is, then there is more for you to do. Click the Linky List towards the end of my post and add your blog link in order to be a participant. Then pin the badge on your sidebar. Write about your cherished object and post it between 24th and 26th July 2015. You can pin the badge by going to your blog’s dashboard and choosing Widgets. Use the link of the one on my blog. Thanks.

      • swamiyesudas says:

        My Dear Peter, Thanks for all that. …But! Am an Extremely simple person, who likes no more than ONE thing to do. I may be a Dunce, but I like people to guide my very fingers on things computer and cell phone! …I’ll let it be. Have already too much to do, anyway! Regards. 🙂

      • Peter Nena says:

        That’s all right. No sweat. You are not a dunce. And thanks for writing about your cherished object.

      • swamiyesudas says:

        Thanks, Peter! And, She is my Favourite ‘Subject!’

  6. Very nice project.

    I’ve been trying to put out my post on memories. You gotta watch Still Alice with Julianne Moore, if you haven’t.

    • Peter Nena says:

      I watched it when it came out. A very moving movie. That disease. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you awaken enough memories to post for the blogfest. Myself am terrified by my memories. But I’ll try something less scary. Do have a great week. Thanks.

    Such a wise choice! I once had to answer a q about 3 books I’d take to a desert island, and a dictionary was one of them. Like you, I still use mine for many reasons even though Google is right at my fingertips.
