First Blog Anniversary

Wow, I just noticed that I've been blogging for one year!!

My Blog is Celebrating today its 1st Blogiversary ( blog anniversary )……. isn't it Great !

I remember I was assigned the task to make blog templates for our sites’ users. I made quite a few. They were good but something was disturbing me….. If I can make blog-templates can’t I manage a blog?

My anxiety made me register three blogs that day!!!!! Wordpress, blogsome, blogspot……… Just think……… I too wonder what was going on in my head.

Now comes the BIG problem….. blogs are registered… but content ???????…. or post ???????? Yeah, only question marks were there in my mind...

That morning one of my friends sent me a Good-morning-mail with a beautiful diamond studded rose picture. Without a second thought I used it in my 1st ever blog post. At least I could start it with a lucky charm .

I never tried to participate in the ‘blog game’. Didn’t even cared much about its ranking, search engine optimization or number of posts… generally my posts drop-in on the eve of some festivals. That’s a reason some of my friends have named it a ‘Festival blog’… Thanks, this name has balanced my ‘irregular-blogger’ tag…. Hee-hee. Sometimes I even thought of deleting it… as I could not give it a quality time.

A few months ago I started my own website. Generally people shift their blog to their own domain. I was also thinking the same. Just then Google gave my blog a PR-3. Thus I kept stuck to “me-anindita.blogspot.com” !!

Hey…..a LOT of negatives things, isn’t it?? That’s why I never imagined I’d keep it going for one year, (sounds to little?) ok let me put it this way … for 3-6-5 days!!! Still nothing to be so happy (you may say)…. But, I-am-happy !!

There is a lot to learn also from this short span of blogging experience. The thing I want to give my blog… still I can’t is ‘time’… On all happy moments we promise something to ourselves. And this time I promise ‘time’ to my blog though I've got bigger fish to fry.

I thank each and every one of you who have come by my blog to comment or just hang around. Happy first Blogiversary to me-(anindita.blogspot.com)!

The best part is that you could remember the anniversary date of your blog...that certainly implies that how passionate you are in the blogging. We all use to forget the dates :) keep it up.
More interesting posts along with great works we all would like to see from you.
