My Blog Baby turns 1!!!

It seems only yesterday. Months after months of conceiving and developing this baby in my mind, I had finally given my blog, my baby to the world. My third baby so to speak. And like my other two babies, I am super proud of this baby as well.

Let me give you a flashback about what happened in MB this last year.

This turned out to be my best post:——>

How do you know you married an Indori?

Indoris from all around the world read and loved my post πŸ™‚ Including the most Indori of them all, Rajiv Nema, the man behind the Indori Youtube Videos. πŸ™‚

Also on a similar line, this also turned out to be a rather loved post—->

How do you know you married a Scorpio man?

 

All said and done, I love my Scorpio man to bits, even though he drives me crazy sometimes. Most times.

All the time πŸ˜›

Dadima ke Nuskhe seems to be the most popular post even now!

Grandmas really DO know the best, don’t they? I mean for all my hoopla about creativity and such, it was after all a post guided by my MIL that has worked the most πŸ™‚

And of course, this post for newbie bakers in Mumbai——–>

During this one year, my older daughter turned five years old:

Magical, I tell you!

 

I made some special friends πŸ™‚

Swapna Thomas, you are the best thing that happened to me after Mind Brew πŸ™‚ Cheers!!!

Poornima and Sfurti, you rock girls!!! I love you guys!

Vishal Bheeroo, you are the brother I needed πŸ™‚

Corinne Rodrigues, you took my blog to another level πŸ™‚

Pratibha Pal, you are my newest friend πŸ™‚

 

MB inspired a blogger πŸ˜‰ My sister-in-law and friend, Purvee, who is doing amazing work on her blog My Little Diaree πŸ™‚

I got several awards from fellow bloggers:

and then an award for a contest on Indiblogger;)

Then came April and a crazy blogging challenge, and a crazier theme I picked for the challenge!

Which I completed, to my amazement!!!

It was a cathartic experience I tell you, 32 posts in 30 days, 26 out of which were DIY, 24 of which I totally made from scratch. I know I am tooting my horn here, but guys seriously! I’m happy, so forgive me!

So one year, 386 posts, 60K+ footprints, and 325 followers later, I am set to begin another exciting year on MB.

What do I hope to achieve in her second year? Well, like a baby, her first year was all about learning and assimilation. Now begin the toddler years, the terrible twos!

My goals for my baby’s second year:

  1. To host a giveaway

  2. To invite more people for more exciting interviews

  3. To interview some awesome bloggers

  4. To make more friends πŸ™‚

  5. To win a few contests, teeny tiny ones at least πŸ˜›

  6. To finally write and publish my first ebook πŸ™‚

  7. To make my little MB independent. Which means, to have http://www.mind-brew.com (*daydreaming already!!!)

Here’s to another exciting year for my third baby girl!!! Happy Birthday, MB!!!

 

And thanks to Sahana for helping me pick the name one year ago. You are set to have your own baby (the real deal) and I wish you all the best for the hardest and best job of your life!
