Erica reminded me a few days ago that this ol' blog is about to turn three years old.

Truth be told I could not remember if it was two or three. But yeah, tomorrow marks a brother's third year of writing here.

This is post number 623 but there are at least another fifty or so posts that have been taken down for this or that reason.

Thanks for reading me here. Thanks especially for the patience through spotty and testy times.

I said that I would write here as long as it feels right.

It still does.

Peace and struggle to youse.


PS. The picture above was taken shortly after I started the blog in a tearoom in New Delhi called "Passion Tea" ... that green chair is the exact place where my first post came to be :)

Congratulations Ridwan, Hope to see another 3 years blogging maybe even a personal .co.za :)

The truth can sometimes sting with a vengeance if voiced loud enough!

Congrats to you and keep writing. Can't go a day without reading you....but then I'm biased.

Ridwan said...

Thank you ever so kindly Aasia.

You must know that I have just recently accepted that I blog, for real ;)

In the time here there has been an increase in the number of excellent blogs in South Africa.

Your blog and the ones you blogroll are evidence.

Thank you again for reading here.


Ridwan said...

Erica I know you are biased and it helps because when you disagree I know where you coming from :)

Thank you for your kind words and support.

Mostly, thank you for reminding me to remember, in total.

Have a great day up there in South Carolina!

I'll holla!!

Thank you kindly for your consistent support and friendship brother Dade.

Trust you are well and that Portland is treating you well.

Peace to you and Maty.
