My Baby Turns 2!

Happy birthday, baby! My baby, "whom" I proudly named as Part And Parcel Of Life ... , was created on 21st August 2009. Today, she turns 2!

Today is indeed a significant day in my blogging life. I was quite hesitant at first to create a blog. But a friend had really been so good encouraging me to share stories and whatnot and told me to blog. From then on, I have been blogging but at one stage I didn't even log in for 4 months! Initially, my blog was so "quiet". I would have been the only one "roaming" around if not for the supportive friend who joined in and that's it!

My mood wasn't dampened though there were no other visitors. I kept on writing every now and then but not on a regular basis. It was about a year later I surfed for the world's bloggers sites and came across  I visited the site several times and fell in love with it! I thought it would be great if I joined it and I'm glad now because I was taking the right step to move forward. Now, I have 465 followers there where as in this blog, the current number of followers are 174.  As of now, there are 164 posts published with 1922 comments and hits 28,237.

To my baby, I'm wishing you many successful journeys ahead and may you always be blessed with happiness in blogging!

A special mention:

1. To Abet of Kuching who had been very supportive.
    Thank you so much for showing me the way to blogging.
     I wish you and your beloved wife, the best in life!

2.  To all my visitors, followers and dear friends, you guys are simply awesome!
     Without you all, this blog would have been disappearing  from blogosphere.
     Thank you so much for all your visits and comments which I really appreciate.

  10. Hi Balqis,
    You will never know how far your single step could take you to!!!!!! The burning example is you blog itself. In every field, everybody is like a kid, having a very little knowledge at the start. But gradually, when time moves on, he becomes a master!

    A very Happy birthday to your blog!
    Keep going Friend! :)

  19. Hi Sie! My blog is older about 7 months than yours. It's the elder sis of your blog! Even if older, it didn't progress much in the first year. Sometimes, it was like stagnant water. All alone, by itself. You have read the long duration of time I didn't even log in. Your blog is doing very well. I can see that. Keep going! :)

    Thanks for dropping by. :)
