A huge thank you!

I noticed recently that the traffic to my blog has been on the rise. That made me delve into the logs to see just where the visitors are coming from. And, below is a list of the Indian food blogs and web sites that have been sending me visitors on a regular basis since April 2006.

A toast and salute to you all!

Thanks Manisha for such sweet words. I always loved your encouraging comments on my blog and love to read your posts. I feel some kind of emotional attachment with few bloggers and you are one of them (Don't think I am just saying these words to please you, I mean what I say), one main reason might be your posts about you and Medha.

Awww that was so sweeet of you. Btw, how is the summer treating you guys up there?

Ashwini said...

Hey M thats nice of you. I loved your no oil lemon pickle so just had to link it. In fact I loved the fact that you were trying a pickle at all (coz thats totally not my forte) :-)
I was just checking the pics of your trip. How beautiful. I am so glad you shared your train travel with us. I dont know why we have never considered that option yet. Do post more pics of the camping trip when you get the time

Manisha:

That was an endearing post Manisha! Thanks!

And your vacation pictures have inspired me post some of mine too. But, please don't ask me when I'll get to it :)

That was so sweet of you manisha. You have such a wonderful blog, and I am glad if I could send you some visitors. Thanks a lot for the nice words.

Manisha said...

Seriously, this is about you guys and your wonderful blogs! Not mine! I just wanted to acknowledge how much I appreciate your blogs and the links to mine.

Shilpa, I understand that you are speaking from your heart and that means a lot to me. That Medha, what can I tell you? She's very special. Every child is special to its mother but this one is a bonus. My pregnancy was very difficult and the doctors told me that if my pregnancy went to term, I should consider it a bonus. Well, this child was determined to make it; and make it, she did! So I call her my bonus!

Mythili, you're most welcome! You helped me overcome my queasiness about worms in my backyard - for that I am always grateful! Summer?! Hot! Hot! Hot! It's been near 100F ever since we got back. If I didn't have a mile high backlog at work and an equally high pile of laundry to do, I would be by the pool every waking moment.

Ashwini, the no oil pickle is great! I'm all stocked up on making one with limes and green chillies. No point in wasting the sunshine!

Nabeela, I'm sure you'll find some real gems in there. I've learned so much about regional Indian cuisine from all these blogs.

Indianadoc, you're a real sweetheart! I've been staring at your recipe for palappam for a long time now. I hope to get around to making it soon!

Priya, the pleasure is all mine!

GM, we all have lives beyond our blogs. Some people need to just learn that! ;-) Do post your vacation pictures when you have the time.

RP, thank you so much!

Manisha,
It was very sweet of you, creating a post just to acknowledge fellow bloggers!! I have always loved your writing style, keep them coming!!

Vaishali said...

Manisha,
How do you do that? Finding out where the traffic is coming from? And why did you want to find out? I mean, if traffic increased at my blog, I'd just sit back with a smug face thinking that 'I have arrived'. I'd just feel more *important*, and I'd continue thinking like that. I guess, I am just too selfish to give others the credit for it. Well...I am not Manisha, am I?

Sury said...

Aww, how sweet, Manisha. Thank you! I enjoy your blog not just for the recipes, but the intelligent posts you write. That our blog actually sends visitors to yours is such happy news! I hope the trend continues.

I still have to try your lemon pickle, but it's on my MUST-TRY list, so sooner or later, I'll be sure to get to it.

Thank for linking to my other blog. That's so nice of you. :)

Manisha said...

I'm sorry I missed your comments earlier...

KA and Sury, thanks! But this post is about you guys, not me!

Vaishali, you're a hoot! You have me cracking up every time I read something you have written. Largely because of your question, I started a blog on traffic called Visible Blog. It's sparse right now and I am trying to build info there but there are only so many hours in a day!

Sury, do let me know how the lemon pickle turns out. I took my lime pickle with us when we went camping and my hubby surprised me by making a hotdog which had lime pickle instead of ketchup! It was one of the best hotdogs I have ever had for several reasons. ;-)

Mansi Desai said...
