Another Year of Blogging and Enhancing Life

When I decided to start writing a book in 2009, a good friend* advised me to start a blog instead. That way people can read as I write it. The plan was to put together the book as soon as I had 100 posts/articles. I almost forgot about the plan and lost count of the posts until I saw the year-end report from WordPress.

Allow me a little bit of bragging: Thanks to all of you, my readers and subscribers, the number of views reached 48,000 in 2011 – up from 23,000 in 2010 and 16,000 in 2009! The current number of followers is an encouraging 298. There are 244 posts on the blog, and the most popular have been:

  1. How I lost 3 kg in 3 weeks (8,463 views)
  2. 11 Health Benefits of Fasting (7,154 views)
  3. 10 Inspiring Birthday Quotes (5,639 views)
  4. Does Rice Make you Fat? (2,278 views)
  5. 45 Tips for a Happy Marriage (1,201 views)
  6. 37 Things we Take for Granted Everyday (1,025 views)
Thank you, also for the wonderful feedback, comments and emails that encourage me to keep writing. As for the book, it was one of the few things on my 2011 to-do list that I didn’t do. But it’s back on my 2012 to-do list. Happy Reading in 2012, and please keep the comments coming.
* Thank you, Altaf, for the idea, encouragement and technical help to get me started with blogging!
