Thank you all *drumrolls*

This could have perhaps been the best birthday present for the year, and it arrived this morning. I look into the various metrics every now and then, considering I am the finance guy with a nose for numbers. This morning, when I logged into Technorati, I was in for a surprise and here it is for all of you, and thanks to all of you!

Yes, I’m pretty young out there with the bloggerati, and after reading Gary and Ben for a long time, I decided to reach out to the House of Miles where Boarding Area is located, to start writing Live from A Lounge and we went live in July 2011.

So, to bring this young baby right up to the top 20 travel bloggers in a small span, is all thanks to you, readers. I’d like to take a bow and thank you all for your support to my baby steps. The journey is the reward, and going forward, expect to read more about the journeys I make, the rewards (awards ;)) from all of those, and my insights into travelling in Asia and Europe, especially my base in India.

Thanks again, and stay tuned for the upcoming regular broadcasts! Cheers to all of you!

  1. Congratulations! One of my other blogs has rather surprised me with how quickly it came along, but I am not in the top 20. Yet. 😉 We do appreciate our readers, but you yourself must be doing a great job too! 🙂
