A-Musing turns One.............


A-musing turns one today - a blog that had no intention of being born.  It was only after Desicritics – a forum for aspiring writers, decided to put the spotlight on me, I realized much to my alarm that I needed a blog.  Thankfully I had a collection of nearly a dozen articles that I had written in the past three months. And so precisely a year back, A-musing made its tentative entry.  I managed a scintillating debut and foolishly created 11 blogs, one for each article.  It was not until someone who had been following my write-ups regularly, wrote me an alarmed mail did I realize my mistake.  Bless you HarshVardhan, my first follower, the first someone who believed in me. And of course Desh Kapoor who got me to write in the first place.

It’s tough to write an anniversary special without sounding like an Oscar like speech. I want to thank him, her and it goes on.... Yes, there are many dear friends and my long suffering family I should be thanking but I decided to let others speak on my behalf.  Friends who know me through my blog. Some get gushy, some have fun at my expense, while some are still thinking.... 

This week I get a well deserved break as I sit back with my cup of coffee and let my friends take centre-stage. 

Come join in the fun.

    Well, here we are at an important day in the Tiny planet called Earth that is lost in a galaxy called Milkway. Earth might be tiny but not the deeds of the humans that the world has seen... Here we are witnessing one of the deeds of our fellow-blogger-human who is celebrating her first bloganniversary. History is not made in one day but exactly 365 days and the history is born in the name of A-musings ...

So a very happy B'Day and may you grow big... err fat...err bulky with loads of humour and sarcasm. Oh and when Purba does come back, ask her to take good care of you, growing things need special attention. :P
