4 years of Blogging

What started off as baby steps into something that I was not quite sure I would be good at and had to be suggested quite a few times from Kribs has lasted four years. One of the regular visitors to my blog and now a friend happened to note and send me a mail that the 7th May 2009 clocks 4 years of blogging. Strange how time goes by.
Its been great indulging in this and its nice to step apart from myself and observe the changes in thought process over 4 years. 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one, every well-wisher, every critic and the passive reader.
I also have to thank the Cyber Crime cell as I have had to seek their assistance in a couple of cases. 
Thanks for the support people. Thanks for the statistics that read 687,000+ hits in 4 years. 
I have loved this space and it has been nice being here.

KK: The show must and has gone on. And it will also wind up I guess when the winner has been chosen. Why I am there or not hosting the show is not really necessary at this point in time ain't it?

Hi Chinmayi,
Though I had been a regular reader of ur blog for almost a year or so, this is the first time I am commenting.

Why I am there or not hosting the show is not really necessary at this point in time ain't it?Nope. Its really very necessary now as I seriously miss something in the show. Even today when I saw Mr.Stephan on the show, it reminded me of the previous time when Mr.Stephan had been there and you hosting the show.

The show would have been much better had you continued. So that actually increases my anxiety in knowing you u are missing as a part of that show?

Hi Chinmayi,

Many congrats for your sustained efforts in contributing 4 good years on sharing your useful thoughts in the form of blogging.

Most of them forget their blog for some reasons as times goes on & very few go ahead with unidimensional concentration in achieving their goals.

I can say for test cricket its Rahul Dravid and for USEFUL blogging its you :)..

As usual continue your good work and keep crossing more years on blogging.

Hi Chinmayi akkaa,
6,87,000 hits thing is really like 'wooww'.. awesome ! .. i completely enjoyed going through your blog space for over two years from when i'd started reading .. i am absolutely sure several thousands people would have loved it as well.. learnt many things from here .. Of everything , the most scintillating and striking thing is your 'command over the English language'.. thanks so much for the very thought-provoking ,enjoyable , and creative posts that you'd written so far..

Hi Chinmayi,

My heart felt wishes for your blogging effort. I started reading your blog just few months back and Im very much impressed on your writing skills and the way you portray things.. Loads of applause for you!!! Keep blogging. By any chance do you intend to write anything related to sprituality, Hinduism, or any other facts which we aren't aware of.

MouliG said...

Congratulations. It is nice to see that May 7 is a milestone for someone else (it happens to be yours-truly's birthday as well!!).

This is a well written blog, and has a lot of your personal insights. Do continue writing. All the very best.

Sathiya said...

Congrats and keep it up! 4 years of blogging is a big achievement...I guess when you had started blogging many people (including those in IT) wouldn't even know what blogging is including me!

What I admire about you is that apart from other things, you are also showing some social responsibility by taking up the social issues in your blog. That's really awesome.....keep doing it! I hope you will set an example for all the youths!

Balu said...

Gr8 to hear... Congrats and keep going Chinmayi

MADHAV said...

Chinmayi

Congrats on the 4th anniversary of blogging. Its really nice. I have personally told friends and family to read this blog of yours. You cover a wide range of issues, feelings and the followers of the blog who post comments also seem to share a common set of views/values which are decent/sensible. To bring together so many like-minded people from various walks of life is what you have achieved through this, is my humble opinion.
Keep the good work going.
Thanks and regards
Madhav

Maddy said...

Hi Chinmayi Mam,

I am a great fan of urs.. I am new to this Blog... ASS show was very gud when u were anchoring..

Dhivya said...

Hi Chinmayi,
I am Dhivya.

Its been quite some time that i get to listen to ur aaha kaapi klub and its the first time I am reading your blog.
Would like to tell you that u r doing an amazing job. Creating awareness among people is jus wonderful. U'r attitude of speaking right from heart is amazing.Many of us are not able to voice our opinions about the government and other issues faced by our country and am happy that you r able to do that on our behalf. Would like to add on regd the health tips and recently about visualizing things positively. It was just great.Rgd the show where the government officials answered the calls of the listners were also good and thought provoking.

Would like to add in a small suggestion regd the programme. You play great music in the mornings. Esp btw 7 to 8 am. It would be nice if you could tell us from which movie the songs are being played from. I do accept that its tedious to announce the movie names for all the songs being played but it could be done for some good songs.

Day before u had played a song " Ulagai aazhum kaadhal unarvin aazhu nilai". From that day on i 've been browsing so much that i couldnt get the movie in which that song belongs to. So finally i ended up searching for u'r id thinking that i could get the movie name from u :)

Keep the good work going on !!

Cheers,
Dhivya
