This is my hundredth post. I've 'decorated' this post with a lot of links. This is my record of my dear readers' kindness and appreciation on this blog, and you are welcome to click on these links.
Hundred. Yes. I did not expect to touch three digits, but this blog world has turned out more interesting than I thought it would be.
When I started this blog about 10 months back, I was not quite sure what would be in it and how it would turn out. Except for those days when I was journeying which were the ‘no internet’ times, the fact that I have continued to blog, more or less, on a regular basis gives me a strange kind of pleasure though this might be something inconsequential to others.
Sincere thanks to all of you.
Invitations and Links
I have been invited by Arun of the beautiful India Travel Blog to write a guest post on it, and I feel privileged to do that. Thanks Arun.
I have got some awards in spite of being a fairly new blogger. Apologies for not having distributed some these awards generously as I am supposed to. I know I shall be forgiven for that.
So, during these ten months, David of Authorblog has given me the Post of the Day Award to three of my posts: Incredible India Indeed in August 2007 here, Vera in September 2007 here, and Guns n' Roses in October 2007 here. Now that is what I say is real encouragement to a new blogger. Thanks David.
In addition to the beautiful words on that Award, San states I am an adventuress who "travels to exotic places and brings [us] back souvenirs in the form of lovingly crafted travel logs." San, thank you for your kind words.
It feels good to know you have interest and appreciate what is written here. As to travel log, I write some details of my experiences and include some information on the history of the places I've travelled to. I'm not quite sure if this fits the definition of a travel blog. However, I do not let that matter as long as I am enjoying it. I have also been posting some of my attempts at poetry and have resumed my Haiku post on Tranquil Tuesday and am glad that some of you like it.
During the past 10 months, in this captivating blog world, I have developed a pleasant bond with you. I notice people from all over the world, all walks of life, of different religions, beliefs, faith, professions, ideas, and opinion are here and we are bound in a fascinatingly beautiful way. I love that!
I want to acknowledge each and every person who has visited my blog, including lurkers. For keeping me going, for dropping by, for leaving your footprints in the form of appreciation and encouraging comments, and your friendship, I thank you. It's been lovely knowing some of you beyond the blog through emails and phone calls and its truly great meeting like-minded people, thanks to this blog.
As far as possible, I have tried to respond to all comments on my blog. In case I have not, please understand that it has not been intentional. Your comments have been a source of inspiration to me. In some instances, the comments have, in fact, added a new perspective to my posts. I will look forward to continuing support from you and developing this bond in days to come.
Blogging has been a new and interesting journey for me. Dear reader, I want to emphasize how equally interesting it has been to visit your blogs where I have discovered a variety of awesome posts with pictures. That has been a delightful experience for me.
