birthday special!!!!

this is my b'day cake
new day new begining

On the August 13, my blog has grown up to a toddler. yeah its been a year since i started blogging officially.

on this occasion i have decided to write about the how i began blogging.


first maldivian blog i stumbled upon.
i browse internet using my mobile almost all the time. especially at night. i was googling for some medical terms, i ended up on this one. dancinrain

i was much suprised to know this was a "website" by a maldivian student who is(/was) studying abroad. i didnt sleep that night. i read all the posts in the "website". and ended up on many other maldivian sites of such. but sadly my credit was eaten up by dhiraagu around 4:30 in the morning. well this "website" is my inspiration to blogging.


other blogs and mvblogosphere
following day in the office, i had few works to do. so i decided to find more about my new obsession. i researched about "blogspot" and knew its called blogs (shortened for weblogs) supported by google. and blogging is the most vibrant part of the new internet community. and later found out that there is a site which collects updates (feeds) from all the maldivian blogs. Mvblogosphere (not quite true....have to submit the url first)

found few other blogs like .mini and crazysuja a school mate!!


commenting on blogs
i started visiting mvblogosphere and reading blogs regulary. it took few days, there i was commenting on blogs. i have used numerous number of alias but anonymous remained my favourite, learned how to create blogs in the blogspot and started testing.

idea of blogging!
end of that week when a colleague of mine and i were talking about internet i mentioned about the blogs. and it seems he was roaming through the blogs as well. after that we used go through the blogs on the blogosphere and come up with ideas to comment. and one day after a such session of discussion, he left saying "mode i think you should create a blog yourself." well, i have a secret, a hidden blog by name of http://modespage.blogspot.com. posted two posts on it and latter deleted it because i could not update properly and doesnt look half nice as other blogs. by the way i got two comments on that one by .mini and goldenlotuz aisha. then i created another one and started playing html codes and found about themes.


official start

by then i have known a lot about blogging and created my new blog http://modespage-online.blogspot.com and posted my first post on 13 August 2007, submitted the url to mvblogosphere. but i didnt tell anyone about that except my colleague [maldivianmosaic] who also created a blog http://thoughtsunboxed.blogspot.com


my identity

many people know as blogger and many know me in person. but few of those people know me as a both blogger and a real person. but i now have many friends, a lots of friends in mvblogosphere. very close friends.


Blogging and me

Blogging did change me a lot but I would write about that some other time!


a big thankyou to
.mini, shweeeeet, xefrox, i-kko, aesha, lavendergirl, maldivianmosaic, axe, moyameehaa, aisha, bulhaa, radvixen , halfpixel.

special thanks to Lavendary for being with me all the time and their ideas and inspirations for axe and maldivian mosaic

and many other bloggers(sorry if i miss any body) as well for accepting me for what im. and to all people who ever commented on my blog, supported me, visited to my blog, i may not know you but you are part of me.


a weird coincidence

this is a coincidence i swear, and i didnt know till today that i started blogging on my birthday.


thankyou for reading
