one year of blogging!!!!!!!

(Birthday special post)

One year……………….

77 posts………………..


1100 hits (only in 5 months,,,,,,as I added that gadget only five months before)………..

530 profile visits.................

15 followers (who follow my blog publicly,,,,,,,,,,there are many more who follow privately)…………

Visitors not only from India but from abroad also ………….

Huh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I guess I have earned a lot in one year

Today is the birthday of my blog “PASSIONATE STUBBORN”

Exactly one year has passed since I'm addicted to this blogging stuff..

Ummmmmmm,,,,,,,,,well one year ago,,,,,,,I had a bit knowledge about blogging but I thought only celebs do that (what a moron I was!!),,,,,,,then one day I came across an article about blogging in “The times of India” . That was the time when we were like locked in our homes due to the agitation that was going on in Jammu regarding that Amaranth land row(I hope you guys still remember that?????),,,,,,,so I thought of cultivating new hobbies,,,,,,,,,,though few days before I had starting reading also,,,,,,,,,I mean novels & stuff (hey,,,,,that means that this time marks birthday of my reading hobby also,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hmmmmmmm,,,,,,,,31 books in one year,,,,,,,,including 26 novels,,,,,,,,,,,not bad,,,,& still there’s no end). Combined with the fact that writing has always been a passion for me, getting started with blogging wasn’t difficult. Initially,,,I wasn’t sure what I’m gonna write but then ideas just emerged & emerged so it wasn’t hard to carry on with this blogging stuff.

I never thought that anyone is ever gonna read my blog,,,,,so I just kept it as a secret,,,didn’t tell it to my friends,,,,,,,,,,,,then to my astonishment ,,,after few weeks of starting I got first comment on my blog & then first follower al,,,,,,,,,,,,,can’t tell u how great I felt then!!!

So then I decided to raise the curtains,,,,,,,,I told to my friends about my blog & put the link of my blog in my orkut profile.

My writing skills improved with time (still they suck but are a lot better) & ofcourse the quality of my posts. Many of my friends checked my blog & appreciated me & many made fun also ,,,,well,,,,,,,,,,that doesn’t matter,,,,I’m thankful to both the groups.

I didn’t realize when I became so obsessed with blogging that I started to put all my emotions & feelings in my blog rather to discuss them with others,,,,,,,,,,,and that actually helped a lot in healing many wounds.

Huh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,okay okay,,,now getting back to the lighter side,,,,,,,,,,,,,,in this one year this blog has given me so much

A very very good friend G,,,,,,,,,so many other friends who follow my blog,,,,,,,,comment on it,,,,,,,,,,guide me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,give sympathy,,,,,,,,,,,,,along with appreciation

It seems,,,,,,,,,it’s a different world here,,,,,,,,,,,with all those people who are more or less like you,,,,,,,,,,having some sort of same thinking & liking,,,,,,,,,,,,well it really feels great to open up here,,,,,,,,,,before the people who can understand you

Happy birthday P.S.(passionate stubborn)

I love you

P.S.:- this blog really means so much to me,,,,,,,,and it has been one year since I’m running this blog,,,,,,,,,,,I wanna hear from you guys,,,,,,,,,,,how this journey was like??????
