My Blog — How it came About

Oh, the story dates back to 2007 when I realized I need to write. Write whatever I thought. On whatever interesting I saw. That is how I sometimes relax, because I’ve these thoughts in my head and they need to be out “somewhere” 🙂

I started this blog in 2007 and it has gone through a lot of transformation. It has been a long journey, a sweet one though. And I am sure, a lot will change, and I think it is for good..

Advice for Other Bloggers

One thing that I’ve learnt through these years of blogging is that, blogging is a community. Community of like minded people. How would you be in a community? Meet, Greet and say hello right?.. Talk to people on their blog, not just say hi or good blog but actually indulge in a conversation. Read their blog – not just skim through – and let them know what you think. That’s how you build relationships…

  1. Congratulations on your award! And thank you very much for nominating me.
    You’re right in saying that we are a community, and that we grow as bloggers through our interactions with others in the community. I think these awards are a good way of encouraging more interaction.
    So here’s to your award, and mine, and getting to know our community better!

  2. Hello Su! Congrats on the recognition!!! Woot woot! 🙂 And thank you so much for nominating me! It feels good to be noticed. I’ve been blogging for a while but I haven’t had much opportunity to interact more with our community. And as pointed by Big Erik, this is indeed a great way to encourage us to explore and interact with each other more. Thanks again! Hugs <3

  3. Kudos for the award, it was the right thing you created this blog 🙂
