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, Akanksha, Pranav, Jayesh & Mahak.
The Blogosphere would be so lonely without all of you 😀
Welcome to my blog, The Shooting Star. I’ve been called a storyteller, writer, photographer, digital nomad, “sustainability influencer,” social entrepreneur, solo traveller, vegan, sustainable tourism consultant and environmentalist. But in my heart, I’m just a girl who believes that travel – if done right – has the power to change us and the world we live in.
happy birthday 🙂
