Quite impressed by her cute space (she was not a food blogger then) I was all in(silly)doubts and(stupid)queries..
Me: Can anyone like me, 'blog'?..
Her: Why not??!, as long as you can write something interesting and can hold your 'readers'…
Me: Hmmff… I don’t think I can write a thing and expect someone to read my journal perpetually..I fear I'd run out of ‘interesting’ topics very soon to ‘hold’ anyone..bah..!
Her: I am confident that you never would run out of 'recipes!'..
Her: Click a decent picture(??!!)of what you cook and type in …the world is always in need of good food recipes..
Me: Aah!![Now sitting erect..head held a li’l high…cough cough..no use..no web cam..bleh!]
“Holding a site requires lots of basic knowledge and I am a total zero in there…”
Her: Din’t I tell you that blogger is user-friendly, the more you invest time in there, the more you learn…and no more questions YOU CAN do it, START.. right away!!…
I created a crude one, sent her the link in another couple of hours..
"Good start up..but very disorganised..guess you’ve to work a lot in it with the header, title, side bars,and….. well check out this link..and see how tis done.."
From this lovely place and the smart blog roll, I found myself virtually flying in the wonderful sky of food blogging...bloggers hailing from different countries with varied cuisines..so creative!.. food photographs, recipes, write ups,…. totally fascinating me!..
....Thus began my journey with the “crude disorganised space” as a food blogger enriching little by little with recipes, pictures, write ups……
....and I believe I’ve come a long long way!!….
Now, I feel proud and happy to have come up with the 100th post, a bench mark that deserves a simple celebration.. :)
Butterscotch Blondies from my sister's place was something I’d wanted to try for quite a long time and was postponing just because I failed to get the Butterscotch chips here.
Down came a cute bottle from her when we spent our lovely days in our home town, two months back, and here I am with the final product…
Her recipe reproduced
Get ready with: (yielded 16 squares)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1. Cream the melted butter and sugar until well blended.
I am extremely grateful to my readers and my blogger pals...
My sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you who had supported with undying enthusiasm thoroughout my journey…
Tight hugs to Swapna, my class mate, who always gave a tender “kick” when ever I hibernated.. :)..without her pushes(many a times, too hard ;)) I would’ve definitely taken yet another year at least to reach this milestone.. ;)
Thank you so much everyone for following along...
You guys are the very reason why I'm still blogging today!
Hope it continues for ever…
