Blog anniversary!!!!

August 13, 2009

After the Joker’s threatening of the trashing of the account, I have done something that can be said as creative… (I could hear the chorus, “That and all, we have to decide, and not you). And I like to say to you all and also remind myself that this was the day last year, I have published my first post 😀 😀 It’s been a long journey with more than 125 posts, which I have never ever dreamed about. Something is there, within me too… ha ha ha…

First a cake for my blog anniversary,

At this time, I like to thank my PM, team mates, office colleagues and some of my friends who encouraged my blogging journey

So I like to thank you all individually, at this special moment of my blog. I am going to do it in the order I have met you all.

Reema: One of the first few blogs, I have visited in blogosphere and I am still grateful of that. She has shown the way of what can be written in a blog. She had the command on whatever she was writing, which I have doubted whether I have at the start. But somehow I shrugged off that initial rustiness to write some meaningful posts. The first one in her blog that impressed me was this one.

Nita: If not I haven’t visited her blog, I am sure that I would have never ever written so much on politics. You can see the professional way of blogging with her, referring lot of information from many sites and also an unbiased view in writing about a news or review. Then I am really impressed with her and also her disclaimer. Her clarity in thought is really amazing.

Sakhi: One of the renowned story teller in this blogosphere and I have learned a lot about story writing from her by reading her’s. I have loved all the stories of her. One of my earliest blog friend and I am glad that she is still here and encourages me. Her photoblog is really awesome and don’t know why she is not updating her crafty village often.

Sahaja: I am still amazed on how she has chosen those lovliest blog name(Smile… an everlasting smile) and site name(lovely sunrise). They are really poetic ones.Her posts are always cheerful and you can’t leave hers without a smile. Even in her some serious post, she will make us to smile. Her poem about her dad is really touching one. She is also another earliest blog friend for whom I have a lot of respect and I am glad that I have visited her. She always encouraged me, especially for my stories and she has done proof reading for many of my stories. She herself took that and done it for me and I want to really thank you. She is not active in blog world now. I hope she will be back soon and I am missing her. She also have a photo blog and a cooking blog. Both are awesome.

Su: He is a blogger, who left me mesmerizing with his use of words. I really liked the way he written this post and I have learned a lot from him too. One of the brightest guy I have seen, he is sure for success and I wish him all the best. He too was not updating his blog now. Hope he will be back soon.

Destination Infinity: A multi-talented blogger he was, writes about a lot of things in an interesting manner. His identity name is really a great one and I don’t know how he thought about that. I still like his post on Burma and his post on cooking. He is more active now and great that he writes on lot of topics.

Arvind: True to his blog’s name (An entertainment blog) his posts always entertained. Just like me, he was one of the cricket fanatic. He was not active now and I think he is really busy after his job. Awaiting his return 🙂

Raj: I am really glad that I have met him. Again his name is also a creative one(An alien earthling). He too encouraged me a lot and still he does that. We both have common opinion on most of the things and at times his comments outnumbers my post itself. Learned a lot of historical information about Srilankan tamil problem. When I dug through his archives, he has written posts on varied topics. But of late he isn’t writing much. I love to see him as an active blogger.

Axinia: She writes mostly on spiritual things and her words will be full of optimism. The photos she posts on her blog will be amazing. A coolest blogger, I ever know.

Odzer: I am very much glad to know him. The first thing that caught me about his blog is, the series of posts he has write against the plastic ban in Chandigarh. A very good cook, he has written how to prepare lot of reciepes. More than that, I have got a new perspective each and every thing while we chat. We chat about very different things and I have learned a lot from him. He has provided a lot of information to me on various things. Thanks for them, Odzer.

Smallstar: A little girl from Italy, who pours her thoughts in her blog. I wish her all the best and I believe that she is doing good now. She too, has left the blogospere.

Sharad: Another blog friend, who share my common interest on cricket. His posts are always enjoyable and you will feel lighter after reding his posts. He has left the blogosphere some months back and he is back now. Yay.. 😀 I am really happy about that.

Verbi: I have amazed at her English and most of her posts will bring smile to us. Her words have the freshness and I have to thank her for introducing me another good friend this blogging world Kartz.

Kartz: Whenever I have to read his posts, I must have a dictionary alongside with me. His Poems are of, high in quality and he is also good friend of me. As he is too busy now with his new job, he is not able to update his blog. Hope he returns back soon.

Zman: A blogger who lives in America, he always encouraged me to do better.

LVS: Another blogger, who writes on varied topics, importantly on technologies. I have missed his blog due to some poor blog management 😦

Smitha: She also started the blog like me, without much interest in networking but felt the importance of commenting then. She has written a lot on day-to-day activities and also on lot of things going on in world. I couldn’t forget this post when has put the picture of Poohi 🙂 really cute one.

Nimmy: One of my favorite bloggers, her words always have that hard truth and she never backs away from her point. I have always wanted to read her post on the history of Palestine, which I am postponing till now 😦 She  encouraged me a lot and she is now half-active in blogosphere. Hope she will be completely active soon.

Vikram: He is another very organized blogger, who writes without any bias. Sadly I have missed his blog due to bad blog management 😦

Amit: A fantastic blogger, his posts always can be rated as perfect. His etiquettes and guide post are always great, so as is reviews. I love his blog layout and love his writing 🙂

Actually the way of blogging started to change from this point, January, I guess. Solilo and Indyeah have entered and they have brought a whole new perspective. Usually I will see the leg pulling in the Tamil blogs. As far as English blogs are concerned they are more in professional way. But after this, everybody were really energetic and fun quotient in blogging has reached a new level with comments are coming equally good with posts. And also I have met a new set of bloggers Solilo, Karthik, Lancelot, Vinnie, Chirag, Ajit, Indyeah, Smita and Vimal over this period and the way I write the comments are really changed.

Karthik: One of the two bloggers I have met, a talented guy. His posts are always an enjoyable one and I have laughed out myself in many of his posts. He also writes in tamil here, and I love his way of writing. He has a community in his name in orkut, dedicated to fans like us 😉 😉

Lancelot: Another blogger I have met recently. We two share common thought in many issues. But sadly he said goodbye to blogging few months back. I am glad that now I know him personally. I loved his posts much.

Vinnie: She wrote on everything… Story, poem and day-to-day things and here’s is again a high quality writing which needs a dictionary from my side to understand. Now she also left the blogging and locked her blog shop permanently 😦

Ajit: What a blogger he is!!!! he has a sole aim of making us laugh on whatever topic he is writing. Oh god!!! thats only 75% of truth. He has also written some serious posts on religion and some other things, which are equally good. I love all his posts, just like all of you. Glad that I have met him as blogger and gained friendship. Just think about joining in his college as junior to him.. I am scared 😆

Chirag: A techno-blogger he is, he has shared a lot of info about effective blogging and making blogrolls and all. Now he is also back from blog hiatus 😀

Solilo: Don of this blog Samaj, kind enough to visit all the blogs and keep everybody in splits most of the time. There will be no wonder, if I say I love the posts on Sweet kid Peanut from her. They are always thoughtful and fun. Hope Peanut always teaches some lessons to her ‘Amma’ 😛 😛 Not only that, I loved her political posts also.  Thanks for all the encoragement, Solilo.

Indyeah: The only blogger in blog samaj who has the right to put a warning for her short posts 😛 😛 Her posts are long, interesting and thoughtful, most importantly . Now her frequency of posts is really reduced. There was a period when her blog archive was like for weeks. And surely there will be 7 posts by each week. Her comments are always encouraging and can be crowned as comment queen.

Alice: Another blogger whom I have missed due to bad blog management 😦

Vishesh: This boy is multi-talented. From poems, reviews and his knowledge about adobe photoshop.. he is amazing. A veteran of blog Samaj.

Dhiren: If his posts are not enough to have a laugh, then he will give extra doses through his comments. I remember once in IHM’s blog, he has made a serious comment and he didn’t got any reply. Then he came back and said, “I am writing something meaningful and nobody were listening”.. ha ha ha.. thats his trademark. He coined the term ‘blog samaj’ 😀 in which I am a part.

Vimal: He completes the threesome of this blogsamaj, along with Dhiren and Ajit. A very good singer(its true) and his posts rocked a big time. Who will forget his award giving ceremony, his changing into woman and the cross border terrorism.. laugh riots.

Smita: Is there any other one who will be able to narrate day-to-day things better than her??? it will be complete laugh-riot and ‘laugh until your stomach hurts’ is guaranteed. And her book reviews are always top-class.

I think I have perfectly placed them two here, Smita chasing Vimal 😛 😛  See the way I write about you all also changed now 🙂

Viji: A blogger who writes on very simple things in her life. Love her writing for its simplicity.

Oorja: Sometimes her are posts are really serious and at times as cool as anything. Her philosophical posts are really nce. no wonder she is called as mathaji :green:But the point is, she writes both of them really, really well. She is on vacation. Enjoyy..

Arpit: A blogger who is really talented. And after a long time, he has posted a new post a few days before. His post on his school is really touching one.

Harsh: I love his writings as well as his blog’s outlook. A typical college student, he cares about nothing. Always a place to have a enjoyable read.

Rashmi: She writes on everything and now she is on blog break to look after her little kid 🙂 🙂

Bones: I am amazed by the way she collects the news. Many of her posts will have some info which we would have ignored. And there are some things she always shared to make everybody laugh.

Saritha: Most of her posts will be on simple things and she will make us smile with her simple way of narration and Pinky’s antics.

Sandhya: She writes from her heart and I love her posts on books, day-to-day events and th photos of her garden, she has published a few days ago is really amazing. A very enthusiastic blogger.

IHM: A veteran blogger, whom I have met very late in blog samaj. Her posts are always thought provoking and asks a lots of questions at us. They are real and from the life. I love such writings.

Manju: A blogger who writes about the ill practices in India which we will miss very easily. Not only that the questions she raises are every man’s question in this country.

Mystery: I love most of her posts, be it on work, sports and eating. Hers is very simple in narration and very enjoyable.

Crafty: A refreshing blogger and a very sweet girl. Her comments will make anybody to laugh and her posts are really cool. Her words are full of optimism. I am really glad to have know her. Thanks to blogging.

Swaram: Giving a real tough competition to Indyeah on who writes a meaningful long posts. I loved her last few posts very much and the point I have to mention is, they are the posts I have read until now 😀

Ashwathy: The first post I have read in her blog was ‘how I royally fell’.. its a complete laughter and she kept up her reputation till now. Now I am eagerly waiting for the 4th part of Cross border terrorism from her(she has published it now and the mission is getting serious :green: )

Pixie: I love her writings too, very simple, direct from the heart and I am really touched by her posts by friendship day and on her sister.

Ekta Khetan: She writes on numerous things and everything is really enjoyable. Recently she posted a story and I liked it very much.

Saranya: A new blogger friend, whose posts are really simple and heart-warming.

Masood: Another new blogger friend… both we are deciding on which can be the first comment(3rd or 4th 😛 😛 ). And I have seen his baby’s picture in the first post I have read of his. Really cute.

Avada Kedavra: A fan of Harry Potter like me, I loved her posts on quotes of Harry potter books and the Jack Sparrow’s quotes.


I miss all the bloggers who are not now active in blog world. I am sure they will be back someday and I hope that I will be here to enjoy their writings 🙂

  24. August 13, 2009 2:24 pm

    Hey thanks for all the nice things you said and for the awards. This is a lovely heart warming post and I have been wanting to do one like this too, trace my journey over the last few years. The only sad thing is that I have a lot more people who have now stopped blogging. 😦
    And a lot of my readers don’t have regular blogs.
    Anyway, I love the community that we have created at wordpress. I am familiar with three quarters of the bloggers on your list and I agree with what you said about them.
    I am honoured to be part of this wonderful blogging circle. And I hope our circle widens and expands and we keep on loving each other.

    kanagu: The efforts you are taking for each posts is unmatchable Nita.. as I said you are an inspiration to me 🙂
    and please write about your blog friends 🙂 it will be really interesting 🙂

  25. August 13, 2009 2:26 pm

    Oh yes, and congratulations on your first anniversary! Remember this is the danger mark. Between one and one and a half years people lose interest in their blog. They either give up, or start another kind of blog, reducing their interest in their main blog. This has happened to a lot of people, even on your list.

    kanagu: Yeah.. I have also thought about bidding a bye.. but then decided.. this is the space where I can pour my thoughts freely and I don’t want to get into some cocoon 🙂 I will continue 🙂

    • August 13, 2009 7:00 pm

      good point, Nita! it also happend to me, I changed from Shaktipower to 1000petals after one year I think. But I am still out there blogging, in September it will be 3 years already 🙂

      Iam also glad you are there too, my dearest friend Nita!

  26. August 13, 2009 3:20 pm

    wow….i’m overwhelmed… really..!
    i havent known u that long in the blog world… but i’m glad u r following my posts, liking them and dropping ur feedback from time to time. thanks a lot for mentioning me… and OF COURSE i m humbly and gratefully accepting ur awards 🙂 🙂 i m touched!

    if i’ve ever been an inspiration to u to write better or made u LOL, i m glad 🙂

    ok enuff seriousness. have to say something stupid…so here:
    P.S.: hope we all get a piece of that delicious cake for the anniversary!! 😉 u still havent distributed it 😛 😛 lol…

    kanagu: Thanks Ash and your posts are always enjoyable 🙂 you deserve those awards 🙂
    and you can take how much you want from the cake 😛 😛

    • August 13, 2009 3:23 pm

      and of course i admire the effect u must have put to describe each person’s blog and what u like it about it! kudos, dude! hats off! 🙂 🙂

      kanagu: Thanks Ash 🙂

      • August 13, 2009 3:24 pm
