Today, on Sep 24, our dear bhOndOO is one year old. This blog iisc life was started exactly a year ago with this post.
Lot of wonderful things have happened since then and you all have become a part of bhOndOO’s friend-circle. Many of you advertized bhOndOO in some form or another, many of you kept up my tempo to write by reading and commenting, and many of you contributed ideas and stories. I am sure this will continue and I am grateful to all of you for being there.
Congratulations on crossing this major milestone.
You have lots of interesting stories to tell, and you tell them well. So, just keep blogging! [And that’s the suggestion from me.]
His the suggestion has really helped me go ahead at times. Thank you, Sir. I would urge other bloggers to keep this suggestion in mind whenever they feel that it is not worth writing.
The blog went through a few accomplishments. But the major achievement was raising of money for my classmate Ashutosh Mishra’s bone marrow transplant. Some of you — whom I have never met, never seen, never communicated with — donated money. I was really obliged. Thank you very much.
The number of visits to the blog is close to 30,000 in the first year, averaging over 80 per day. Soon this would be over 100 per day. Below is the list of most visited posts and their number of views.
bhOndOO is yet to write papers, yet to attend conferences, and yet to become Dr bhOndOO. I am sure, many more adventurous stories of bhOndOO are still to come.
