My blog turns 8 this month.

With four years of random blogging and four years of regular blogging, my blog crosses another personal milestone. This was an equally remarkable year as my blog was featured in the Top Indian Blogs and among the Top Bloggers in Chennai and a weebly interviewed me (I loved answering their questions). And also, thanks to an internal forum at work where we’re allowed to write, a lot of people have been reading my blog and giving me their feedback. One random person at work (who had attended a session of mine) came up to me and said she read my blog. I’ve still no idea how she found out it was me. The highlight of all this was when someone I admire (a celebrity of sorts), happened to go through my blog and spoke with me for almost an hour when we happened to meet. My happiness knew no bounds and I’m sure that my blog was happy too πŸ™‚

In the past few months, I’ve received about 3 or 4 mails from bloggers about my blog. I’m not sure if it’s common, but for me it’s new and I loved it :-). There was a teenager who wrote such a lovely letter to me. I happened to read that on a Monday morning and it felt great to note that she was β€˜inspired’ by my blog. I always tell people that inspiration is a very big word, but when they still insist on using that term, I feel extremely honoured. Thanks to all those who took time to write to me just like that.

My heartfelt thanks to all those who still keep dropping by. I’ve been lucky to meet so many wonderful people through my blog and each one of you inspire me in some way or the other. The last year was hectic with a lot of cooking, baking, running marathons, reading challenges and experimenting with new stuff. I try as much to stay connected to Blogosphere, but it’s the encouragement from all of you who still care to leave a thought here that makes me want to get back and keep writing. Thanks to all your motivation and inspiration, without which I’m not sure if I would’ve been able to make it this far.

Almost thrice this year, I decided to move to WordPress and I also went to the extent of setting up a WordPress blog. But I was slightly hesitant, and I kept it for some other time. A little later when I thought it was time to migrate something held me in the last minute. So I deleted the new blog and decided to stay here. This feels like home and I guess my loyalties lie here, to the one who helped me grow as a blogger. And what’s a better place than home? πŸ˜‰

So that’s it from me, for now. I will continue to write, if possible more, and try to be more regular.

Thank you my dear ‘Blog’ for sticking with me for so long. I know I can be tough to handle at times :-D. You’re more than a blog, you’re a great friend of mine! πŸ™‚Β 

Thanks again !
