Bloggy Birthday - Two years & Two Lakh Hits

Photobucket

Happy birthday Bloggy :)

Its TWO years since Fourth Sense Cooking was born :) I wouldn't have believed if someone said a few years back that a non living blog could change life drastically. But now, I feel it and accept it wholeheartedly with a big nod.

Fourth sense cooking has given life to my creativity and interests. It has literally shown me who I am. Now it even makes me feel proud of myself :) I can really feel my bloggy kid growing up and adding laurels to me :)

I knew it was my blog's birthday today but really dint have a great idea to celebrate and all. It was just another day and I took a short nap this afternoon. I had a weird.. ahhh no no a cute dream. My little bloggy fourth sense cooking came up in my dream with a human figure and asked me "Why are you celebrating your birthday alone with chocolate cake topped with fresh cream and Ferrero Rocher but don't even bother to wish for my birthday? :( "

Ohhhh dear.. when something of this kind appears in a dream, is there a way we can get away with it!! Never, I really dint want to disappoint my blog. So here is a simple yet cute celebration for my little one's 2nd birthday :)

Its 730 days of blogging!! yahooooo..

If at all I have blogged for these many days its all because of a lot of people around me and I really need to thank them all for making this happen.

My first thanks royally goes to my Mom. :) Amma, without you I wouldn't have known any of these and my interests are totally inherited from you. You are the soul reason behind this blog. You have taught me things, shared recipes with me, given me ideas to cook and click, helped me making them and have encouraged me to do what I like. A big hug and I bow down to you forever. Thank you Amma :)

Love you Dad. You have got whatever I asked you for. Supported me totally to do what I like and never forced me on any day. Till date you have shown keen interests in what I do and your words of encouragement is my boost. :) And you have in fact enjoyed the dishes be it yummy or yuck!!! Thank you so much and Ummmmah Appa :)

Sisy my best pal :) You have been a super dooper criticizer to all my posts. Your words of encouragement helped me to do more and your criticizing words have helped me to do them better :) A perfect combi, so I owe you so much for it :) Thank you so much and I extend the thanks to my sweet brother in law who has got me a lot of props and equipments for my blogging :)

Note: I have sprinkled some chaat masala on the melon balls and thats specially for my dad :)

Now comes the major part of people who I just cant afford to miss out.

A million thanks to my dearest READERS, FRIENDS and CO-Bloggers. You all play a major role behind this blog and you have always kept me going with the lovely comments that you all write and even by simply visiting my space and trying my recipes.

Nothing else can give me pleasure than my blog being useful to someone somewhere. :)

I thank you all so much for making this little girl's dream come true :)

Photobucket

My little bloggy gave me a cute surprise. Fourth sense cooking has crossed 200000 hits today :)

Its a double bonanza celebration now :) Though it has been a slow and steady growth, the march from 1 lakh to 2 lakh has just taken a few months time and this makes me feel so good about the progress :)

I would like to thank all the visitors once again and really hope you enjoy the journey through this blog just as ever.

Water melon cake inspired from - Veggie belly which was in turn an inspiration from Martha Stewart.
