1 Year Anniversary!!!

1 Year Anniversary!!!


Randoms by a Random clocked one full year yesterday and I just want to scream out loud- “We did it!!!” This blog would not have been possible without every single one of you who liked, commented, re-blogged, followed and encouraged me. This time last year, I wrote my very first blog post and now, here I am with over 670 followers, an amazing network of bloggers and some wonderful people I am happy and proud to call my friends.

It’s been an amazing ride and journey. Through blogging, I fell in love once again with writing and I know now for a fact, I cannot go back to “not writing”. If anyone had told me someday I would be able to write a story and Flash fiction (which I thought was extremely difficult), I wouldn’t have believed them. I owe it to you guys, (particularly Priceless Joy and Joy roses) who encouraged me to write those stories anyhow, and now, I can’t stop writing them. Thank you.

Not to make this long and boring, but really thank you so much guys for helping me to fall in love with writing once again and for keeping this blog afloat. It’s all because of you.
PS: Khadijah I see you sneaking up on my stats ;). Thanks for the encouragement girl, I love you and you know it.

The highlight of my blogging year is this interview I conducted for writing201 of a dear friend of mine struggling with depression. It hit close to home and I regard it as one of my favorites. For my recent followers here’s the link: Living with depression and beating the odds

I would love to hear from you, what has been your favorite post so far or which of my categories do you look forward to the most?

  1. I like your blog in general but the story stories/series are my favourite (I see you Richard Blake) and I also enjoy your writer quote with its philosophy and moral of the story. One more thing, your poems A_Z, I think it was for poetry month are some of your best work. Congratulations on your first blogging anniversary, cheers to more blogging.

    1. Hahaha, ohhhh, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. A-Z was one of the hardest things I ever did. I’ve learnt not to underestimate the power of the alphabets now. Thank you. Cheers β˜•


  2. Congratulations! It really has been a wonderful journey for you and us, your readers. It has been wonderful reading you all along. I loved the interview you mention and I loved the posts bring mental illness out of the closet. Over the past year, your writing really has changed.
