Happy Birthday !

Happy Bday to you,
Happy Bday to you,
Happy Bdayyy to V-Lokam,
Happy Bday to youuuuu !!!!

Was confused to celebrate this as a blog-erssary or a birthday, but I guess a Bday sounds more appropriate. This space in the World Wide Web (as how Optimus Prime puts it in the Transformers movie) has not changed ever since I started it, except for the missing in-depth movie reviews and the inclusion of my songs in karaoke. Of course, it was earlier named as Vlog (the change in name is explained here) and had one of the Bloggers default black backdrop.

V-Lokam has made a considerable difference in my personal life. I have spent so much of my otherwise wasted time here and I must admit, I really enjoyed it. To be frank, I am not good at this writing thing, but with whatever that I am doing now, I am contended. And my 'writing skills' have only improved ever since I started spending time here. The other great thing that has happened in my life is that I am being recognised for my songs which was attempted only with an intention of uploading it here. I do have a good news now thats related to the songs but I would prefer making an announcement once its through; probably by the end of next week. Also, I am happy to be a part of the blogosphere now with a couple of blogmates; the interaction is indeed fun.

I am not elongating this post (atleast this one!); I take this opportunity to thank each one of you who has encouraged me till now through this blog with their regular comments especially Reeta, Rakesh, Soneeta and Poonam. And for people who visit and leave without commenting (for example by brother, who used to comment long back under the name Saintly Sinner); I would appreciate if you would key in your thoughts too.

A final biiiig thanks to everyone for keeping V-Lokam alive.

Hey Vimmuuu,
Bonne Anniversaire to vimmu's lokam--- oops v lokam.. May this blog become more popular.On March 18th,2008 it crossed 1000 visitors and on June 14th,2008,the visitors count touched 2000. This clearly shows how popular the blog is getting day by day....I am so happy its being read by so many people.. The main reason for all this goes to the hardwork put forth by my friend Vimmuuu and I must say that his articles are definitely worth a read; and as for his songs they are mind blowing.. For people who have not visited his blog as yet...THEY R REALLY MISSING OUT ON SUMTHING....!! Keep up the good work going....Cheers!!

Yeda..Yeda...
Whats up with the comment on me not leaving a comment,eh? I've been trying to reach you for the past three / four days now - i'm getting the inflow from dad on whats your progress.
Proud of you bro...and so I ain't revealin much out here. But like you mentioned, probably this blog might be the one that might end up making the biggest difference in your life till date. Keep your fingers crossed. And taking the name of theSaintlySinner in irrelevant contexts!

vimmuuu said...

@ Rakesh : Thanks a lot. That was one cute card! Btw, good remix of the age old bday song!

@ theSaintlySinner : Yeaah! I made you leave a comment at last. Thanks.
