1. 2.. 3… 4…. 5! Five years ago today I sat in-front of a blank white screen and wrote A blog is born.
I’m happy I did not ponder for too long and got this started when I did because this online blogging journey made a big difference for me and what’s more important – it made a difference to many of you, my followers, as well. I know this from all the great feedback you been sending me during the past five years, which in turn fueled my efforts to keep going.
Thank you for doing so, and I hope we can keep this going for a long time more. As things slow down during August, most of you are probably out vacationing and taking time off with your family and loved ones and so and I wish you all the best and lots of fun. The month of August also marks the birth of this blog – This day 5 years ago to be exact! The blog kept growing and gaining momentum in the past year with the Facebook Fan Page passing the 50,000 mark this week. I plan to keep the momentum going strong, hoping I can celebrate many more such birthdays for this blog and keep providing you all the best place to find information, share & learn about Architectural Visualization.
This year I’m celebrating the birthday in partnership with my great sponsors and there will be a series of Giveaways and Promotions during the month of August entering September!
