An year ago, exactly on this day I sat there designing a small home for my creativity on the internet. It was a space I created for myself, to grow, to share and to fall in love with. Did I know I would be with it after an year? No way! But did that space change my life? Hell, yea!
AN YEAR WITH PINKPOT: It is difficult to explain how an intangible, virtual thing can become such an important part of your life that you cant imagine a life without it after. It has been a great journey so far, ups and downs both, but its been a pleasure to go through it all. There have been times when I have been sad and low about my blog, and there have been times when I have been very inspired and motivated as well. Why did it become such an inseparable part of my life? Simply because it was a beautiful distraction from the mundane life of everyday.
SPECIAL MOMENTS: Some moments during this one year were moments that cannot be re created ever. They made my cry out of happiness. When I got that first comment, first reader and first compliment. A few small but huge milestones - my first 100 readers, and then a 500 and recently a 1000. Pure happiness. One of the most satisfying things when I look back today is that my blog was shortlisted to the top 12 blogs [new comer category] in the Company style blogger awards. I did not win the award finally, I felt sad, but it gave me a lot of confidence and motivated me to make this li'l space better.
NEW YEAR, NEW DESIGN: Last year was spectacular, but this new year is the one I am looking forward to, with a lot of hope and inspiration. I want to expand my space into a more creative one and one that encourages sharing of knowledge. In addition to beauty and lifestyle, I want to add elements of design and photography in the months to come. I have given Pinkpot a design makeover, as you can see. I have been inspired by minimalistic yet creative designs lately and have tried to reflect that in the design. Please let me know how you like the look of it.
THANK YOU: And all this would have not been what it is , without you. Yes you! Every single one of you have made a big difference by sending a tweet, commenting, reading and just by being there. Each one of you are more special to me than I could ever express through words. A huge heart felt Thank you! :)
Hopefully you will continue to be there with me as I continue to grow with this space each day.
