A Toast to My FBs…The Friends from the Blogosphere!
I am 70 days old on the blogosphere! Yeah, just 70!!
And these 70 days have seen me meeting people (on the blogosphere) from different streams, different walks of life, different outlooks and perspectives, different geographical locations and different age groups as well!
And they are….. the FBs or Fellow Bloggers or the Friends from the Blogosphere!
It’s amazing to note the way, we FBs visit each other’s blog & support and encourage each other! At times, when a new post on a FB’s blog is missing, some are quick to wake him/her from the reverie!! Their comments or the feedbacks certainly add a distinct perspective.
And this is despite the fact that we have never met, nor do we know much about the personal lives of each other…yes a bit of this and that from the blogs we post.
And for some of the FBs, we do not even have the real life image…so it is fun to imagine the way they would look in real life….For eg, Subhayan must look like the Squirrel Boy…courtesy his comment on my post “A Weary Hairy Tale!”
And some even don’t have a name, like we have a FB by the name: “Whats In A Name”! Imagine, greeting him, “Hi, Whats In A Name!” …and another one by name “Miss Kido”!
One wonderful observation…everybody is so very helpful and supportive…whether its a search for a cool template or a technical advice on HTML codes… You just need to ask and the help is in your mail!
The talent, skills, knowledge and expertise, each one has, it is indeed incredible!
So, today, I’d like to take this as an opportunity to Thank each one of you, my FBs for making it wonderful and great for me in the blogosphere! (Hey, I am not going anywhere and this is not my farewell speech!)
In order below, but not in particular, are my FBs:
Subhayan @ Wrahoolz Wramblingz
Debi @ Impulsive Expressions
Dhiman @ Chronicles of a Techie
Shankar @ Ballat
Amrit @ The Midnight Sun
Vipul @ Reflections of an Empathic Libertarian
Roshmi @ Musings of an Unknown Indian
Pawan @ The Other Perspective
Whats In A Name @ Poor Jokes – “Ha-Ha”-Kaar Macha De !!
Miss Kido @ Miss Kido Speaks
Tiger @ Consumer Psyche
Jaladhi @ Tech Explorer
Kunu @ I Luv My Family
Sumeet Shah @ Out Of My Comfort Zone
I am really proud and happy to have this circle of friends.
So guys, Here’s a toast…to us, and those like us…Keep Blogging and have a great time doing that!

Blogosphere is truly a place where you meet people with “Beautiful Minds” …cheers to Friends from Blogosphere…

Thanks for considering me as your FB. Thats a lovely definition of FB!!!
Well, regarding the community thing…lets get started..Shubh had some thought…will discuss and then shall launch the platform.

i will take this community thingy seriously in August … really busy noe … you know why … there’s this site called ning which allows you to create ur own social networking platform… my dad created one for his B-school colleagues and students, and it rocks big time … in fact it became such a huge hit that IIM students opted to do their internship here! it’s no less than facebook or orkut … check it out:
July 11, 2009 7:04 am|
tell me something, i’m unable to post a comment at debi’s blog … there’s no place to put in the word verification, which shows up after i click on “post comment” … are you having the same problem? if not, then pls let him know that i’m unable to tell him about the cell phone review he wanted because of this difficulty
July 11, 2009 9:42 am|
@ Amrit: 🙂 Cheers and yes, let’s refill our glasses! 😀
Subhayan’s busy so, guess our community will have to wait for some time. Why don’t, we in the mean time work on it, gather data, info, ideas etc. What say?
Can I have your mail id please?
And cheers to our community too!
Refill again?? 😉
July 11, 2009 9:48 am|
@ Subhayan: Take your time, no hurry, no rush! In the mean time, we will jot down some info and ideas!
I have been able to post a comment at Debi’s blog…left your message on it!!
July 11, 2009 10:16 am|
You have been tagged yet again!
Check out my latest post: “More tags… One down, 2 more to go!” for further info…
July 11, 2009 6:23 pm|
Yes ofcourse..lets refill the glass..i have been waiting for you guyz to finish yours 🙂
Yes, I think we should take this community thing until Shubh gets free.

July 12, 2009 5:58 am|
and my very good blogging buddy Aravindh, who was also an awardee at my awards ceremony 🙂 is a photoshop whizzo … he can design the perfect logo for our community
July 12, 2009 7:13 am|
@ Subhayan: Ya, I guess you may put it up, I saw Miss Kido doing that!!
That’s great, but first lets put some thoughts together…ie Name, Mission Statement, Vision Statement, Goals, etc!
I’ll prepare a draft plan, and then all of us in the community can add/edit our inputs on that. What say U??
July 15, 2009 4:30 am|

July 15, 2009 4:30 am|
and go ahead with ur draft plan … i am all ears … i guess everybody is ..
