Happy Birthday Blog!

T hree-6-5 days ago, this was just another wordpress.com weblog

H ere its umbilical chord was cut, it became The Shooting Star.

E nchanted by its first post, first reader & first comment, this blog

S ang its way into the blogosphere, with cliched themes & bizarre.

H ome to 105 posts & graced by 16,000 readers, now is a moment

O f reflection & joy, and gratitude & celebration.

O nce upon a time, a blog was merely meant

T o be a goofy forum; today it redefines communication

I n a world where time & ideas are hard to find.

N ow I deviate from this happy, proud occasion,

G lad indeed that The Shooting Star has defined

S omething in my life that was once mere anticipation.

T hrough this journey, my blog has become a part of me

A s I write this, I think about the future and what has been

R eally, all I want to say is, dear blog, Happy Birthday!


On The Shooting Star’s first birthday, I must thank all my fellow bloggers for keeping me company through this incredible journey! A special thanks to Amit, Premanjali, Varun, Radhika, Aadil,Β  Akanksha, Pranav, Jayesh & Mahak.

The Blogosphere would be so lonely without all of you πŸ˜€
