Blogging

4 years on…

Over Cups of Coffee turns 4!

It’s been four years since I started blogging here. In these 4 years, Over Cups of Coffee has acquired its own domain name, has 500+ posts, 289 followers, 7500+ comments, a page rank of 3, and most importantly, regular readers!

In these years, I have learnt that…

…there are people out there who actually listen read my opinions and what I have to say. 

…even though you have 200+ followers, there are only some regulars who read it all.

…I long for the comments and thoughts of some individuals on my controversial posts or my rants.

….there are people with similar opinions as me.

…age is no bar in the blogging world. I have readers younger than me who don’t seem so. And readers older than me and who I can still relate to.

…anonymity still suits me just fine.

…I am likely to stick with Blogger. Even if they still haven’t got the threaded comments option!

…I post more for myself than to cater to the masses. And it means my posts can be even more passionate. Which then somehow does appeal to my readers.

…readers do make my day.

…I am addicted to blogging just as I was some years ago. Even if I don’t post as much.

…when I get personal emails from readers, I am even more excited! 

To all my readers out there — regulars, buddies, lurkers — thanks for continuing to stick with me. I truly appreciate it.

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    I actually regret not being anonymous. I think I would have liked that 🙁 didn’t think of it then.
    I am more addicted to blogging now than I was when I started and that’s because I read more blogs now and everything seems like something I want to blog about.

    I love reading your blog and it reassures me to think there’s people out there who care about things I care about.

    Wishing you many more years of BLOGGING! I think your writing is kickass 🙂

    Prathama, my anonymity started thanks to my paranoia re my job and possible clients accessing my blogs. I reckon I got addicted to blogging about a year after I started. As you said, reading different blogs makes you want to blog about stuff too! Thanks for the lovely comment about my blog and for the support through reading and commenting. 🙂

    Congratulations P.B! I think I first came across your blog in 2009 somewhere.. and it’s always good reading your posts because you combine information with an easy-to-read style! I’ve got to know about so many psychological methods, theories and issues. Plus, your poems and book reviews are damn nice 🙂

    looking forward to reading more posts here.

    P.S: A big big ‘HI’ to Pebbles!

    Cheers 🙂

    I’m only a week late *sarcastic tone*
    So very sorry for I’ve had a pretty bad week.
    I reeeealy was looking forward to being the first to wish you, I remember checking back on the last day to make sure it was the next:(

    Anyhoo,
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    4 years is a long time to have stuck at a serious hobby, you inspire me with your sheer seeing-it-through-till-here attitude. You’re a rare breed in this blogger world where blogs are abandoned after a year, maximum two.

    I love the way you write, so clear cut and precise. No rambling at all, no mincing words. Yet, it doesn’t seem cold nor does it lack heart for a lot of the posts you take a strong stand for what you believe in. For things you’re passionate about.

    And always something of interest for us readers as well.

    I know I have been around for not even half the time you have been blogging and it might not make much of a difference to you either (:P) but you have a fan in me. A fan of pure sensible-ness, among a ton of other things that I admire.

    Wishing you decades more of blogoversaries,
    Love,
    PeeVee.
