05/02/2014, a beautiful bright sunny day.
It has been a year. Already.
I distinctly remember that moment when my hands were unsteady, the thought so random and my gaze intent yet distant. Just how out of the blue, I decided to start a blog. With absolutely no expectations, no speculations and no definite idea or vision or plan, I set to write. My first post had me just express my wish to write new recipes and contribute to the existing ones. I had no notion of the kind of journey I was going to have. And oh.. what a journey!! Replete with new friends, new recipes, ardent interest in photography and a phenomenal medium to express my thoughts and opinions, I now have a clear road to walk upon 🙂
‘Do you get anything out of it’, is one query I get asked the most :). What they mean is, do I earn anything out of the blog. I was stumped the first time, but now I am so used to it that I have the answer memorized. Aww…no money, but I get immense creative satisfaction… blah blah, but saying it so many times makes it all a bit apocryphal… but the fact is, It is true. The kind of euphoria that this baby of mine garners cannot be compared to anything except maybe having real human babies of our own. I am so in love with what I do. Now this is a huge blessing as you all know, to find love in your chores or work or life is no small feat.
To celebrate this blogversary, I have listed my top 10 most viewed and favorites posts of the year that has been –
A special mention for one of my most favorite posts.., I have a sentimental attachment with this one:
Recipes aside, my random contemplatives have also been a great way to let some steam off once in a while 🙂
