One Year With WordPress


Finally the day has arrived. Today my blog completes its first anniversary with WordPress. I had begun blogging on Blogspot but shifted base an year ago on this day as I found the wordpress themes to be better. Some may disagree but as they say, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”

I just came home after a 2 days tour and the first thing I am doing is write a post. Couldn’t miss it for anything in the world as this will be a good chance to give a long winded “Thank You” speech that would put Kalmadi to shame.

First of all I would like to thank everyone who made this special for me by answering my call for guest posts. Those who didn’t…may your souls rest in peace because I am coming for your blood. Except two who gave me a valid, acceptable reason in time. Those two will be spared.

Thank you everyone for reading this blog. My blog actually has 14K+ hits in an year. I realise what a torture it must be for the readers. Seriously, even I can’t read what I have written without throwing up. Hats off to you guys.

This year has been quit good. I managed to write a few short stories and travelogue. Wrote a few satires that I always wanted to write. I met many new and wonderful people besides the wonderful ones I already knew. I wrote a lot. Who says quality is more important than quantity? I managed to gain a few readers and I also managed to lose a couple old ones. “Jaane waale ko kaun rok sakta hai!”

Being a ‘dramebaaj’, I had planned on quitting blogging today. It would have been something very different. No one imagines that a person would write a farewell post on an occasion for which, he has been after the blood of many people to force them into submitting guest posts. But I discussed this with someone and I decided not to do it.

Damn! I don’t even know what I am writing. Aaarrgghhh…..so much for the boast that I will do a Kalmadi. Ok thanks again everyone for all your support and encouragement. Your comments are what makes me want to write more. I look forward to them.

And this year……lets see what I can churn up.

 

PS: Putting it for ABC Wednesday. Am too lazy to write anything new. Will be on a writing break for a couple days more.

    Happy Birthday to you “Snow Leapord’s Blog” :D!!

    Now this is quite a milestone you’ve achieved.. And what is this “I was going to quit” drama? Well, I am glad you have changed your mind. It has been good having you ’round, and would love to hear from you for a long long time.

    Mine’s going to turn a year old in the coming month, so I’m quite excited.

    Anyways, all the best to you! Keep writing :D!
