Happy Blogiversary!

I did not realize it. I have been blogging for more than a year now! Time sure flies when you’re having fun! My first post was dated 3rd of October 2007, and so I should have celebrated my first year anniversary in the blogging world a couple of weeks back. But nevertheless, here’s my anniversary post to celebrate my blog’s birthday.


I never thought I’d ever develop an interest in blogging. When one posts his writing, he actually opens himself to the world. There’s a tendency for people not to like what you write, and you may get criticisms. But I had very good feedbacks and comments during my first few months of writing, and that I believe made me encourage to continue blogging. Since then, my site has generated readers (and new friends!).


In the last twelve months that I was blogging, my site has been a witness to the changes that were happening to my life. My wife had an operation. My first baby was born. I taught in nursing school. I moved to the UAE to continue my nursing profession. I wrote not only my ups, but my downs as well. People reading my posts have started to know more about me and my family. My life has become an open book to the world.


Thanks to everyone who stops by on this page and leaves a comment. It would be no fun without you, guys! I hope that you learn and gain something with what I write. I apologize for not being able to post more often. My shifting schedule makes it very difficult to post often, but I do wanted to write about a lot of things. I hope that I will be able to post more in the coming year.


Happy Anniversary! Happy Birthday to my blog!

    Back then when I wasn’t blogging yet, I found it weird that people celebrate their blogversary. But when I joined the club, I realized how much of an achievement it is to get to the yearly mark.
