RENDEZVOUS WITH 2009

I am very happy to post this rendezvous with Aathidhyam.We are all bidding good bye to this year of recession,terrorist attacks,protests,swine flu etc and awaiting the advent of year 2010 with new hopes and ideas.It gives me immense pleasure to share this joyous & enthralling ride as a food blogger.
Started this blog :Aathidhyam on 14th april and today my blog is 9 months old with 46 recipes,54 followers and 13040 hits.I know it is very less when compared to other delicious food blogs but i am feeling really great on achieving something like this and carving my own niche amidst of all those wonderful bloggers.Without knowing much about blog,blogging,widgets,food terms i stepped into this world of food blogging,first post i introduced about myself then i thought let me post my mom's special kheer recipe,after posting, now and then i kept checking to know the response (comments) but to my surprise i didnt receive any and from my day-2 i received 1 comment and i was on cloud 9 and till date i am flooded with those valuable comments and feedback.Initially without knowing much about templates and blog designing,i used classic template provided by bloggers,then i started searching regarding the same and today my blog reflects where i have landed.My journey onboard as a food blogger is really a memorable one and got many friends,extended help to my fellow bloggers,learned many new things, shared my views and ideas with them and this journey unveiled onething that i can blog.Coming to photos oh my god,presentation is not my cup of horlicks(sorry tea)so i would like to thank my mom for her support and encouragement and without her this would not be possible.Earlier my photos were of poor quality with dull light but today i love all my recipe photos and i am able to overcome the above problem.Here is the transition.
