Blog turns 4!

Ye-p, homiez. This little spastic safe haven of mine started exactly four years back when I was a bored kid who typed everything in short-hand and went frog eyes at a friend who enlightened me on the idea of a blog. (Sandy, if you're reading this in the middle of your godforsaken nerd-clad engineering happiness, this shout's for ya ^.^)

So I've never acknowledged my blog's birthday before. The thought never seemed all that awesome. I was busy. And I was lazy. Really, really lazy. But now that I'm in the middle of my Boards and education in general makes me flinch, I thought it was about time I gave this little awesomeness in the cyber world some importance and credit. Yes, my love. I wouldn't have been able to become the unsound happy child that I am, without your dashboard entertaining my rants and fiction. Most definitely would not have ever shared even a fraction of the fiction pieces with the world, had you not bugged me with the 'Publish' button and spammed my mail with the comment notifications that slowly grew in numbers. I wouldn't have bothered ranting about life in general had I not realized that total strangers around the world were actually listening. I remember starting with one follower, and reaching to a 207 and still counting. So here's my cue to the next part, my loyal listeners- Thank you. 
You guys have been amazing, and it blows my mind off when I realize how many of you have become regular pen pals/ facebook/ phone friends despite the fact that you guys are in some other side of the city/country/world.
Yes. You guys shrunk the concept of  the 'world' for me, and your constant encouragements/ critiques have made me want to mooove my bum and write some  
So yah. I've always wanted to honestly and very sincerely thank you lovely stalkers of mine, each one of you are fabulous, just so fabulous!

And with this, Nil's Blog (Take it with a quick martini) turns four! 
Free martinis for you lot right here! (and once you guys realize there's none, H-I-T---T-H-E---B-A-R )
And now, I shall go and feel all maternal about how my blog grew up so quick and is a big boy/ girl  BLOG now! 


Because such is life, take it with a quick martini.
-Nil.

  1. Mine turns four at the end of the month! I SO TOTALLY agree with you on the shrinking the world bit! I have friends all over the place, and you know whats the best part? Some became so important that they were a part of the most important day of my life - Yea, my marriage was some sort of a bloggers meet!!!! :P It was HARD for my school friends and college friends to accept that I was meeting some of these people for the 1st or the 2nd time! :) :) :) :) :) .. and in the end they ALL became awesome friends! Don't we all just love happy days like those?

    And then I came across a little genius, a perfect love story, and one blessing of a bald man....you three rock :D

    Enough of me...* drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrumroooools*
