Happy 5th Blogaversary To Me

Happy 5th birthday to my blog Awake & Dreaming & a happy 5th Blogaversary to me!

It’s been 5 years to the exact date since I started this blog, all the way back in 2007. I had setup this blog in a day with the help of my cousin (over the phone), who guided me through the process and by night I had the thing setup. Then I installed WordPress and started blogging.

This isn’t my first blog; I first started blogging in 2002, through blogger.com,  when I lived in Calicut and continued with it when I moved back to Cochin. I was an inconsistent blogger, nothing having an internet connection at home & from 2003 till 2006, not having a computer at home. By 2005 I started getting more & more into blogging and I created a new one in blogger.com and called it Awake & Dreaming. I started spending more time in internet cafes and hence could blog a lot more consistently. But I always wanted my very own website & domain and I wanted to install wordpress.

Finally in September of 2006 I bought a new computer, a desktop model and in November I registered the domain name and on January 1t 2007 this blog was born. This blog became my daily journal and my refuge. I love blogging as I find it’s an alternative way of letting yourself write and be creative and expressing yourself. I’m thankful of the friends that I have made through the world of blogging (take a bow ladies & gentlemen) and hope to make even more.

Thank you for visiting Awake & Dreaming and I hope you come often. Bring your friends.
