Happy Birthday To Meeeeeeeeee....

Or to my blog, anyway- it's been exactly a year since I kick-started this operation! To be frank, the decision back in 2007 was made after several months of nailbiting and one highly involved conversation with a very close friend, because I had no idea of what to say before that. I'm very definitely not the savviest, or particularly bothered about the things typically associated with Indian fashion - I'll only post about stuff if I really love it- and I'm too stupid to even figure out basic tech stuff for the blog template, but then that was never the point. Blogging is fun, irrespective of just how much C and K say this one sucks (but I miss you both rottenly, irrespective of how much you say that). That might be the understatement of the year...

Congratulations!!! I'm also very clueless about the technology aspect, but as you said,this is not really the point. First of all, blogging is about fun, writing what we like to, and if others end up liking it..great! Keep on the good work and I wish you another great blogging year and more ^^

Happy blogday! And I feel you re he basic tech stuff.

Yohan said...

Congrats! Kudos for sticking to your guns!

Because of this blog I find myself examining the clothes people wear and imagining what a fashion blogger might say about the ensemble.

I vote for more pictures of Audrey Hepburn. [What are your thoughts on Mia Farrow? Hee hee.]

slightly late but happy blog birthday! the technology bit isn't important, a lot of simple blogs look really good, especially if they have good content (like yours!). xx

headmistress said...

woo happy blog birthday! May your blog be showered with teeth-achy sweet icing and shiny silver sprinkles, and other fabulous things.

and regardless of technical bells and whistles, or lack of, this is still an awesome blog, and long may it continue!

Happy 1st blogday!

Blue Floppy Hat said...

Thanks for all the blogday wishes, guys! The cake and shiny silver sprinkles are much appreciated..
While we're on the subject, C and K are my friends. They love taking the piss out of me, so the blog is easy to make fun of- even if they did request more pictures of Sasha Pivovarova deshabillé last night :)

riz said...

Congrats from here too! Love the picture selection. I have to say that since I started blogging it's one more thing to look forward to during the day! You get to engage theobject you love constantly.

Happy Blog Birthday!

Since i'm new to your blog, i thought i'd start at the beginning, and this is going to sound sooooo wierd but you blog the kind of stuff that goes on in my head! As in im also at law school and hate the fact that the dress code is black and white....and would rather work in fashion!

If that makes any sense.

bigglassesgirl said...

Happy blog birthday m'dear.

Rollergirl said...

Happy blogday! Have not had a chance to catch up on my beloved blogs as the internet is so slow in my office. So making the most of staying in a hotel for a few days. And oh my, I must be the least tech-savvy blogger, I haven't updated my links list for MONTHS!

Blue Floppy Hat said...

The blog says a huge THANK YOU! to everyone, and hopes to be around for donkey's ages...
Indi: thank you for the award *grins manically*- it makes a great blogday present :)
Heather: You aren't serious about not recognising Audrey Hepburn? But thanks...for half a second I considered fibbing and saying it was me :)
Indian Rose Fashionista: to be honest, my college doesn't have a monochrome dress code and neither does any place I've worked at- it's only court attendance that requires it. And I don't think I really want a career in fashion, I like the idea of putting my degree to some use (when I get it, that is). But yay, another law school blogger- this is fun!

A HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY - I can't believe I discovered your blog just now but I already love it! Congrats on the anniversary!!

Queen Michelle said...

Happy blog b'day! Yours is an intelligent and well written blog, with no hidden agenda's and I love your complete honesty - which is alway eloquently put.

evie said...

Congrats! I'm so glad I discovered your site (via Kingdom of Style, if I recall correctly). Here's to another year.
