My 200th Post and Visitors Count Hit 11000 and Announcing an Event to Celebrate It!!!

I have now made 200 blog posts since starting this blog back in February 20, 2008. It has taken me 5 moths and 10 days days to reach this milestone, and I am both proud and happy to have reached this point and never i expect that my blog will have such a good response in this short span..... Ya! today is a remarkable day for me....

Woo Hoo! Its my 200th post and the visitors count for my blog has hit 11000 today and with this post, I have hit a milestone in this blog world!!! 11000 visitors in this 5 months period may not be a great one for others but it means somethin special for me!!! I can't imagine that count at all!!! Is it a dream(pinching myself... no no... am realizing the pain)? Thanks Lord! Thank You Friends!!!

First of all, I would like to thank my encourager, my hubby who inspired me to start this blog!!! Thank u, Sweet Heart!!! And i like to thank my mom specially because all the recipes i have posted so far is all from her kitchen and i learn from her only what cooking is! Thank you Mom!!!A deep bow to u all who encouraged me to reach this peak !!!Last but not the least, i would like to thank all my bloggy buddies who encourage me through their comments!!!

I just started this blog just for time pass. But when days passed, and when i started to have number of friends thru this blog, blogging for me, become an essential job for me!!! I never miss to check my blog even in weekends! Now I love blogging and i would like to thank all the readers of my blog!!!

I like to post something special for my 200th one and i decided to announce an event every month right now!!! I discussed it with my hubby and he too said ok! We started to discussed about what theme to announce for this month of August! We came across different ingredients and at last, i decided to celebrate 200th post and hit of 11000 visits with my favorite Ice Creams and Milkshakes.

And after finished discussing about the theme, we started to design our logo for the event. I requested to do it for me to my hubby. Myself and my hubby, sat for about an hour in the system and at last my hubby done it. He took much effort to bring out the deign of logo. He took a long time to satisfy me with the logo.

Sesh said...

Congratulations on a great blog. I really enjoy Keralan food. I linked over from another site and might not have stopped if the logo hadn't caught my eye. Is your husband involved in Boy Scouts? The stylized native armerican with headdress part of the logo is from the Boy Scouts Order of the Arrow program.

SriLekha said...

thanks for stopping by my blog Sesh1 no he is not in scouts!
