Hello friends. It’s celebration time at my space. I’m very happy and excited to share with you all, my blog’s 2nd anniversary celebration. My blog has successfully completed two years this day. Due to some reason I was unable to celebrate my blog’s 1st Anniversary but let’s all of us together make this event special and unique. I would like to thank you, my friends, readers and subscribers who have been my support, throughout my blogging journey. Oops! Have I not mentioned my family, without their support I wouldn’t have reached this long.
The brain or idea I would say to start the blog was first sparked by my better half. It was his support and guidance by which I could start this blog and he still continues to do so. Initially, I wasn’t very confident about blogging but, my hubby encouraged me to move on giving suggestions and feedback wherever needed. The most interesting part is that my hubby gifted me ‘Convention Microwave Oven’ for my blog’s 2nd anniversary. Thank you hubby for this lovely gift..!!
Blogging was completely a new venture about two years back. I had no ‘Idea’ how it worked but, now it does mean a lot to me. It has been a wonderful experience since then. This has helped me improvise my cooking even better and learn new stuffs and much more. A lot of changes have taken place since I began blogging. To count a few would be food photography, writing and exploring new cuisines. In the beginning, I was not much a writer but, as time elapsed in blogging it has been different since. I have learnt quite a few things and many more are yet to be mastered. My initial posts had a very little writing and I would jump straight to the recipe details and seldom did any of my post have pictures in it. But, today I have ensured that all my posts are updated with relevant photos of the recipe being discussed and shared.
