100 not out!

All right, folks! This is a definitive moment for this blog. You see, this post is the 100th to mark its presence on this space. Heck! 100 posts of insanity? In less than 6 months, wow!

 

I would like to thank my mom, my dad, my brother, my ex-roommate, the washerman, the sweeper, the guard, my profs, all you wonderful folks at Bloggersville, the stray black cat downstairs, those folks who play blaring music around and yada yada yada… *wipes tear from cheek*

 

I think verbal diarrhoea just manifested itself here. Or maybe narcissism, or may be both.

 

Anyway, let me shed the ‘Mr. Mope’ tag that has been bestowed on me by my dear pal Ramaa and talk of happier things in life. Well, firstly a clarification. I do not mope! (Though I do concede that there are some occasions when I crib. So what, huh? Don’t you? HMPH!!)

 

This blog had taken birth as an aimless, directionless entity that began as a whimper, and stayed shut for many months. However, a chance trip to Simlipal and Chandipur-on-sea gave it a new lease of life nearly 5 months ago, and since then the insanity has only grown.

 

I’ve ranted about my miserable life, dumped some amateurish pieces of writing at people, tried being funny, and sometimes just blabbered on without reason. And well, Google Analytics tells me that nearly 2700 unique visitors from all across the world have been tearing their hair apart over the last few months, having made 6000+ visits to my blog.

 

Thanks to Google’s eye that spies on people much like Sauron’s, I know which area you’re from, which OS you use, the name of your browser, and yes, the colour of your family dog. (The last one’s a lame joke, eh! Don’t take it too seriously. But the rest are all facts. *evil laugh*)

 

I didn’t know if I’d be able to post as frequently as I do now, but it’s mainly thanks to you, the readers who keep egging me on. (Your fault, ha!)

 

It’s been fun, and I hope to write with regularity from now on. Thanks for reading, and appreciating.

 

Also, another thing that’s making me happy is the launch of my own website. It’s a site dedicated to HR and can be viewed at eleventHR. It’s in collaboration with some of my friends and we intend to run it like a business. A lot of sections are still under construction but we hope to launch in about a week.

 

Do subscribe to it please, and share the link on your blogs too. We can do with the free publicity. :)

 

Meanwhile, your bouquets and brickbats will be appreciated. Keep them coming.

100....

what is it with this number which made you highlight it. Too Much of cricket :|

Or is it two zeros together making you delirious.

Or is part of another one of those ingenious promotions for you-know-what.

100 is just 1 more than 99.

For some computer geeks it might mean "8". But if taken from binary perspective 100 is pronounced as zero-zero-one: Meaning a new beginning.

Good luck!

Congrats on the 100th. :)

I would have been as much pleased with 99, but yes, 100 does seem like a milestone to most of us :)

Amazing website. Do keep posting stuff there. Waiting for the other links to get into functional mode.

Cheers! :)

Hey congrats!

I always wanted to write something like this in my 100th post and I forgot. I again forgot while I wrote my 200th post! :|
