Mashups

The year is going to end in a couple of months, just 9 weekends left (for some reason that feels shorter than 2 months doesn’t?). We will start to see lot of Mashups of this year’s songs soon. Found this one for last year’s. Enjoyed it immensely 😉

It will be happier…

WordPress review was a good measurement, but I couldn’t add much to it. So here is my personal review.

Baralikadu still reigns. After all these years (That post was posted on Feb 2013…) it is still the first in the search terms and always get the max views on my blog. Never would I have thought of that when I posted those photographs of a very small and quaint place near my hometown (Coimbatore). I guess I should start charging the folks at Baralikadu some commission if my post is earning them visits 🙂

This year I crossed 1500 followers…Yay!!! Thank you all!!! And hearty welcome to all the new people who have joined this journey! Hope you find my blog(s) interesting and entertaining 🙂

I finally made my blog an ‘awards free blog’ ( more out of laziness than anything else) but then as I say on my picture (down below the page if you scroll down)

“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.” Thanks for being part of my blogging journey.

and the best award for me is your time!

Took part in a couple of new prompts, apart from the ones I was already participating.

Finally got around to complete my Cambodia and Bali tour report a couple of days before on my travel blog. Failed to do one for my US trip I did this year (i.e. 2015) , but will finish it in a week.

On a personal level, I had to send off three of my friends to different places (and countries) for better opportunities (and I hate send offs even though I am very happy for them), was a witness to two of my gay friends marriage (can’t say how happy I was for them and I was their official photographer too , yay!!!), did two international trips this year (as opposed to one every year), ticked Sky Diving from my imaginary to-do list, got my tattoo done, tried my hands at dating and found someone too, spent more than I earned ;), worked out harder and got around to fix some of my long term health issues (will write about one particular issue in detail later) and on my way to fix a few more things for a healthier life style, took it easy at work (had to balance it somewhere), made some new friends, got a little bit more confident of self…well, that is all I think 🙂

With that, good bye 2015 and Hi there 2016! , Welcome!

Wishing you all a Very Happy and Joyful New Year. May your dreams come true and you stay happy, content, and hopeful. 

Take care and see you all next year! Happy Blogging! 🙂

WordPress Blog Review 2015

Seeing other people’s reviews, I was a bit curious to see what my yearly review was according to wordpress.com. So here it is 🙂 

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Past, Present and …well…don’t think of it yet

It’s that time of the year, when we take inventory of what has happened this year and wondering what is in store for us the next year. How much ever I plan for the year ahead, nothing prepares me for how fast the time flies by. It feels like recent times when I wrote about the predictions for 2015. I have done so much this year and yet I feel that the whole year went away ‘just like that’ and I am left with so much left overs. Will those be done in 2016? No idea. I guess, we just need to follow Horace’s advice and tread on.

Cease to inquire what the future has in store, and take as a gift whatever the day brings forth. – Horace


Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “store.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Rewind…Rewind

My friend sent me this video (because we were talking about year end mashups and stuff) which shows not only some of the events that happened this year but combines it with some popular songs that got released this year too.

I really enjoyed it. Its fun.

In case you want to watch the 2013’s version, here it is.
