All About Belgaum turns 2

belagavi

I want to take a moment to whole-heartedly thank the readers of All About Belgaum for contributing over the past 2 years. It is an absolute honor to share this milestone. This past year has been rewarding; let’s quickly review our journey until this point. 2ani


Highlights of the past year:

Bella Vista Belagavi

A significant achievement seeded and nurtured by the blog has been the formation of Information technology (IT) BELGAUM group, resulting in professional collaborations between Belgaum-based IT entrepreneurs.

Judging from the myriad comments each month, this blog has served as an important online source of news and information for thousands of Belgaumites scattered all over the world.

In the 2 yrs since its inception, there have been 1173 blog posts with 1247 comments (thanks for the overwhelming response!), resulting in 110000 visitors in the second year which is a 4-fold increase from the first.

Even during times of significant delay between posts, visitors have continued to exponentially increase the number of page views. To be honest (and maybe a little cheesy), the constantly improving visitor statistics are the biggest driving force that keeps the blog rolling—thank you so much! I remain grateful towards everyone caring to read, even if only once or on occasion.

I’ve met and covered many incredible people, both in person and online. The posts on this blog are constant reminders of these amazing people, many of whom have gone out of their way to help. This blog wouldn’t have existed without their passionate support. Even at times when visitors disagreed and left unpleasant comments, resulted in “teachable moments” challenging my assumptions about the world we live. Would also take this moment to appreciate the contributions of fellow bloggers; they continue to inspire with their knowledge and passion for writing.

Lastly, this blog exists because of you (THE READER), thank you for earnestly visiting and participating. Looking forward to many more conversations in the years to come! If possible, I would like to thank each reader individually, and this can happen only when you leave a comment. To sincerely acknowledge your contributions I have created a list of those who left comments on the blog in chronological order (from the first post until now). It was delightful to look back at all those who have transformed All About Belgaum into a two-way conversation! Thank you again for your support. You rock!2anilogoThanks Manas for this cute wish.
