Friends, family, teachers, and famous people influence one’s life. However my blogging life is a direct result of four unknown and random internet identities - Ashok, XYZ, LFC and Satish. Ashok’s insistence for a detailed explanation instead of my one line definition of ‘First Love’ motivated me to write my first blog ‘My First Love’. On completing one year of blogging, I thank all four of them especially Ashok, for encouragement and constant feedback which became the catalyst for continuing blogging. I am grateful to them for asking and helping me to explore myself. Even after a year XYZ remains anonymous but I have met other three.
Besides these four guides, I come across exceptionally talented and passionate bloggers in the course of my short blogging life. I extend my thanks to all of them. Though politically correct, a long list would not do justice to three bloggers I want to especially thank for being always with me.
1.Usha: The most humble blogger Usha of Sizzling Indian Recipes. She introduced me to the blogging world, sent me the first link and always provided constructive and accurate feedback.
2.NRI Girl: NRI Girl is the first blogger that I could relate to. She started blogging around the same time and we exchanged and continue to exchange ideas on contents, structure and templates.
3.Insignia: An established blogger when I started blogging and always inspired me with the variety in her posts. We share notes, ideas and information on variety of subjects even outside of blogging world.
Of course big thanks to all readers for visiting and commenting. On many of my posts, comments are more interesting than actual posts.
