What Four??

I was aware that I complete 4 years of blogging this month. I also did search for my first post to keep a tab on the date so as to not to miss my blog anniversary.

But as expected I missed it. Signs of growing old. Balan and Anil, fret not; my generation of people grow old sooner; so you guys are younger to me :D

Well, it was yesterday I successfully complete 4 years of blogging. The blog is mature; the author mature; she has grown beyond counting comments and followers. Here is my very first post

Wings to my thoughts...

Phew!!!! I created this blog of mine about a year back. I stopped at that. I almost forgot abut this blog.
I have always wanted to pen down things that happen around me, things that influence me, makes me think about it for a moment.simple things like me smiling and waving a "Hi" to the dog that has made my street its world(oh yeah..I wish the dog everyday..I will write about this later) to serious and tough things I get to face.
Somehow I have always backed off from pouring out my thoughts, but why? Yaaawwwnn...same old lame omni-present reason. NO TIME, and coupled with this my fear..
Whatever.. there is a beginning at one point of time. And this is it. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. Ciao...

Thanks to everyone for your kind words and encouragement; I have come to know few good people who will be my friends for the rest of my life. That's a lot satisfying.

Thanks again :)

  5. B,

    reading your first post, I feel the writer in you has the honesty that makes your words noticeable.Yes, you may have evolved since that day.
    And as long as you carry the conviction that all who criticise you do it not for the love of it and they have an opinion too rightfully.. And as long as you can air your views with conviction and reason, you will surely craft a distinct level for your writing and thoughts.

    And in passing gives me a better feeling this morning to know that there are people like you catching on people like me , age wise ,ha ha!!!

    1. Thanks Anil. I am really happy that honesty has stayed with me throughout and I wish I remain the same.

      Yeah I agree, I did go through the volatile teen-age phase of blogging but I have learnt a lot.

      Hahaha yeah see! very soon I will surpass your age :P

  19. Old? Who? You talkin' to me?

    Having been one of your steady blog boyfriends all these years, I'd say that the one quality that stands out in your writings is its candour. And every post is refreshingly different and you take us to exotic locations ( I will never forget Costa Rica) and you take things sportingly and you always take care to respect and reply to your followers and - did I say 'one' quality? Sorry, I can't count - what comes after 'Kakkathollairam'? ( Thats ole Malayalam for infinite).

    May you write as long as you can. All the best wishes, B!

    1. Balan,

      Haha I apologize :D

      Thanks a lot for generously showering your appreciation on me. I have always been honest and frank Balan; and it has brought pains and losses to me yet I am what I am :)

      Travel is my passion; I love to share my experiences with like minded folks like you. I take immense care to follow up to comments because I value people and their views. Thanks so much for being my steady blog boyfriend and I hope you will continue to be for many more years to come :D
