1000 posts later !!

Hello there, just sitting in my corner, revelling in the little joys of life.

2008 seems such a long time back. Since then I have written over 1000 blogposts (can't believe I could blabber that much), this includes posts from my other blogs - Poetry Wagon and Twinkle Eyed Traveller. To my immense surprise, I received over 450K views on this space and 3.5 million views on Google Profile (yeah people actually use google plus ;) ).

1000 posts later I have a published shape poetry in Lovelets, an honorable mention in International Poetry competition, felt the love of blog awards, people actually published my interviews, stories that managed to win goodies, e-zine publications and a whole bunch of like-minded blog friends.

1000 posts later, I have realized it doesn't matter if the comment count doesn't go beyond single digit. But when people - known/unknown, blogger/non-blogger, personally message you and tell you how much they enjoyed the humour or how inspired they are to indulge in crafting and yoga or when they send me pictures of their inspired work, there ... right there lies the true happiness of blogging. That somehow, in my weird way, I managed to make a difference in their lives. 

All this and more, just because the readers have never stopped showering love and enouragement. For appreciating my stumbling-bumbling-insane world. For correcting and providing critisism. In this ocean of thousands and thousands of blogs, I am grateful that you decided to spend some time in my space.

I am also extremely thankful to my lovely family and friends, who don't seem to care even if I am always band-bajaofying them in my posts :) 

1000 posts later, I am still a happy blogger, in love with life and all its idiosyncrasies.





So long, and thanks for all the fish!!
