The 500 mark!

This is the 503 rd post! Which means, that I have officially crossed the 500 milestone.
I don't even know if this is a milestone at all, because, my blogger profile tells me that I have been blogging almost 6 years and that averages to about less than a 100 posts a year.
Again I don't know if this is a milestone or not, but one fact that is absolutely sound and clear to me is that I can't believe that I have wrote so much.
And looking back to the last two years, I can't believe that I actually wrote some posts that made sense, sense enough to have discussions about.
I have ranted. I have shared my dilemmas, my observations, have blabbered absolute nonsense but now I that I have done that for about 6 odd years, I have a repository of what I thought and what I was thinking, of the past that was then, a future which is the present!

But first, I have to thank THE person who pushed me in to blogging (not literally) and then got me hooked!
*Obviously, he is the one person who I don't think even reads what I write any more, comments therefore obviously are a scarce commodity by him*.
So, yes, the bf introduced me to the world of blogs.
His writings for obvious reasons caught my fancy, and trust me, if he writes about things other than technology, his emotions still capture your heart.
I used to read, his writings.

But then I started writing on my own. Mainly quotations, and stuff that I read and reproduced the same on my blog (which was at Yahoo 360 that time), but then I realised that I actually had a lot to say and finally after much coaxing from the bf, I shifted to blogger.

I am not a prolific writer, but I think, I did impress a couple of people here and there because today those very people are the greatest friends that I have. They are a couple who blogged as pseudonymous but gave out their true identities to me, because we became friends.
You know the best pat about becoming buddies through blogs is, that, when you start to blog you are not a 4 year old (the 4 year old now may have the capacity and the intelligence, I as a 4 year old din even have a computer, forget internet!) who is all innocence, as we have grown older, we all made a conscious decision to befriend people revealing limited information and slowly building it up. As fellow bloggers, we first read your thoughts before we judged and the innocence of a 4 year old returned.

I just want to thank all my blog friends who are still virtual friends, and blog friends who are friends with me out side the virtual world, fellow bloggers, readers and anonymous readers for all the love and support that I have been showered with!

And, a HUGE thanks to the bf, because had I not decided to impress him further, I would have never blogged and reached this mark!

Happy Blogging & Happy Reading!

Congrats on the 500th mark!
Lol you know, I wanted to post on my 300th post, but was too lazy, thought I'd make it, 303 or 333. Never got around to doing so!

I absolutely love every word you write! You do make a big impact in my life and don't ever ever ever stop blogging or writing, no matter what.

I posted your comment on my blog and then saw your comment where you asked me not to post it. I didn't have the heart to delete it, so I'm just letting it be there.
Thank you so much for that comment. Means a lot :)

CONGRATULATIONS. Hope to see you for many many more years to come. I wonder if I will ever cross 500 mark. A minor correction, this is 501st post as calculated from STORIES OF THE YORE. Barring first two years you have been reaching century every year. I am sure you will go much over that this year to make it an average of 100 per year. Keep it up.

Take care
