Fifth Blogiversary!


Yay! This blog is 5 years old today!

Thank you all, dear readers, for dropping by. I wish I had a real cake instead of a virtual one so you could all have a slice. Thanks for your participation - for leaving comments, for sending me leads to great stories and for keeping me informed about what is going on. And most of all, of course, for reading me.

If any of you feel that you would like to guest blog about any aspect of reading/books/creative writing, and think you could interest this blog's readers, please get in touch with me at sharonbakar@yahoo.com.

Congrats, Sharon, five years is a long time to be blogging :)

This blog has become a sort of hub of all information on literary activities in KL, and the literary world outside Malaysia.

Thank you for blogging so regularly and so informatively, and may you continue to do so for many many years to come :)

Happy Fifth Blogiversary!

Happy anniversary.

Thoroughly and utterly deserved celebration!

Your blog has made much of our 'bookish' lives less lonelier, with the meeting of minds for Malaysian book lovers.

Definitely time to celebrate :) Have a glass. Or three.

And the idea about guest blogging sounds intriguing!

bibliobibuli said...

i'd love it if you wrote a post on books for us, Savante. i'm trying to push and prod folks into blogging here (so i can take a rest haha. no actually because i know you have interesting things to say and i am tired of the sound of my own voice)

my best wishes too madam!
your blog has been a very useful one stop literary info for me and i've benefited immensely from it. so i thank you very very much for it.

i've been following it for yonks and along the way managed to make you angry sometimes, insulted some others and make a general nuisance of myself in the comments. i hope you don't mind too much....

bibliobibuli said...

thanks all, so much

Greenbottle - you are an important part of this blog too.

Sorry for being late with the congratulations but congrats -- and well done! -- all the same. I think years in cyberspace are like dog years. So it truly is impressive that you've been actively blogging for over 5 years now! :)
