As I reflect on the year that was and look forward to 2015, I’d like to say a special thanks to each and every one of you, dear readers. Thank you for supporting A Delightful Space with your interactions and encouragement. It only makes me want to write more, do more and give it my best for the next 365 days to come!
For me, 2014 represented a special year filled with plenty of good times, adventures, travel and fantastic people. It was also a special one because I took a bit of a detour from the conventional, quit my full-time job at a magazine, and started busying myself with freelance writing stints. Yes, 2014 has been quite the year! I can only say that I enjoyed every single moment of it, learning and often unlearning.
I’d like to point out that because of all this, I also came across some really interesting blogs from across the world. How truly special it is to be able to get insights into different bloggers’ lives from different corners of this world!
Stay blessed and hope you continue to enjoy my blog! See you all in 2015 ❤
WordPress has done a fabulous job in putting together my year in blogging! Below is a summary of just that.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here's an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.
I woke up to a sweet little surprise yesterday. Smriti from Mumbai Mornings nominated me for the Liebster Award. This award, which is circulated on the Internet among the blogging community, is a lovely way for bloggers and readers to get to know each other a little better. I remember reading about this award when I had finally decided to be more of an active blogger last year. I also remember thinking to myself about the rare possibility of some generous and motivating blogger stopping by my blog to nominate me. At the time, I was, perhaps, only three blog posts down, and winning this award seemed unimaginable.
And then, in an instant, I almost forgot about this award. Until today, that is. I’m so excited to have received it (Thanks Smriti!) because it’s very encouraging to know that you have readers out there who enjoy reading your work. So just in case you aren’t in the know, the Liebster award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I think it’s a great initiative to help expand your blog network, to discover new bloggers and to reach out to new readers. Who doesn’t love awards, really! Besides, Liebster means sweetest, kindest, lovely, cute, endearing and valued, among other pleasant things in German.
But there are some rules and they are not too difficult to follow. Here they are:
1. You have to link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
3. After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and give them 11 questions of your choice.
4. You must not nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.
