My achievements this week: Silly little landmarks



Source: Google Images


So, the week has seen some silly little landmarks which deserve a small blog post (since most of them are connected to my blog or my books).

So, here I go. Landmarks I achieved this week are:

-          I completed 200 blog posts (you can read them all at this place, provided you are willing to squander your precious hours over my silly tales)  :P

-          This blog has crossed 40,000 page views (in fact, today itself). It was struggling under 7K but picked up speed this year.  *touchwood*

-          I gained a few more followers (and I followed them back) :O

-          I crossed 500 friends on Facebook  (well, is that an achievement?) :O

-          My collection of books crossed 100.  (I am a bibliophile, I love books) *puppy face*

-           And my short story ‘Love in the times of War’ has been accepted by a publication house for inclusion in its upcoming anthology. The book would be released on 22nd June, 2013   (ah, a dream waiting to come alive)   :D

    1. It's a nice feeling to have 100 books...but my mom raises her eyebrow and my governess her voice everytime a new courier wala appears....They are fed up of seeing books scattered all over the house (and mind you, i have a small house). But eventually, they have resigned and now treat me as someone who is beyond repair :P

      PS- Autograph? I would take you for a dinner :P :D
