I cannot believe that it has been a month since I began blogging!
What started as a lark, with absolutely no plan, has panned out beautifully and I feel truly blessed.
I was new to blogging….still am, but I enjoy the lessons that it teaches me everyday.
In this one month, other than the first day, I’ve had hits on my blog everyday. Ranging from just 2 hits on a day to 165 on another and I enjoy watching the blog statistics.
It humbles me to see that visitors from countries like China, Colombia,Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Japan and Philippines stop by. Places where I do not know anybody. Thank you for seeing something in my posts that interests you and ‘liking’ my posts.
Of course family and friends from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Canada and the US who take time to stop by and comment …..Thank you.
To those of you who have called, messaged,mailed and commented…..thank you….I thrive in your constant encouragement.
To those who have shared my blog on FB, Pinterest, Twitter…..please keep doing so, you guys have driven many more to my blog. Thank you and Mwah ❤
To my fellow bloggers, I know you only through your writing, and you, me, through mine.
Although its only been a month I can see a little circle forming, each of us encouraging the other.
To me this is the most profound part of blogging.
The ability to see and appreciate the beauty of another’s writing, approach, humor and candor, is all encompassing…..bringing out appreciation, encouragement, awe and inspiration.
This was nothing I could ever imagine as a non-blogger.
I thank you all again and again…….
But here I need to mention:
Deeba Rajpal of Passionate about Baking. The fact that an Indian living in India could have such a beautiful blog was inspiring. Deeba very kindly answered my questions about recipe copyrights and I was on my way. Check out her blog for fabulous recipes and food photographs.
Thank you Deeba.
Aarti Mahesh, who’s casual comment, urging me to start a blog, wormed it’s way into my head and stayed there gnawing away till I did start.
My sister Mary-Lou who sent out a zillion emails to every one she knew telling them about my blog…..I’m sure she was single handedly responsible for the 165 hits on day 5.
Sindu Sanjith…..I guess I could call you my most ardent follower…..Thank you for trying out so many of my recipes and posting them on FB…..I truly appreciate the effort.
Charmaine, Kuki….you too, your posts brought me many more hits.
My son J who helps me with the photo’s, an amazing creative writer, he is also my critic.
My hubby V and daughter D who put up with my late nights at the computer and patiently wait for their meal while I get the photo’s done!!
My parents who have instilled in me this love for food…….all my foodie knowledge was picked up by osmosis at home.
My Mama has also tried really hard to figure out the computer just to read my blogs!
There are so many of you to name…..so I will stop here….but THANK YOU ,THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Today is also the day MOJO started…….Mostly Organic by Jo.
Every Monday I bake mostly organic goodies which friends and family can pick up.
Today we had Wholewheat Carrot and Apple Cupcakes and Mix fruit and nut Oatmeal Cookies.
Thanks to every one who did order and appreciated my products.
I’m happy to say that we supplied Redwood Montessori School who are committed to offering their children fresh organic produce.
