Thank You!

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

I had no intention of posting today. But the is the last day of 2008 & I can't let this year go by without saying a bye to a year which gave me so much by way of learning, without saying a thanx to all of you, whom I've gotten to know across the year, without being grateful for your work cause that has taught me so much and maybe even changed me. This is my gratitude post. And the 107th post since this blog began. Last month I touched over a lakh of page views.

Its been one year and 4 months since 'artnlight' came into being & I'm happy to see I'm loving it as much if not more than when I started off. There was a time in the middle when I just didn't feel like making my usual posts and was just creating these designs & that's all I had & I gathered the courage to post them up here. I have made friends and I have shared and I have learnt. But more than anything what this blog & each one of you who read this have given me is myself. I am comfortable & happy with what I do here. And I have got so much appreciation that it is truly humbling.
I'm going to do one Oscar thank you speech and I'm going to mention person by person each one of you who I would have never met otherwise & who have made this journey special for me.
