My Blog's Anniversary ~ Blogoversary First Year & Counting !!

Happy First Blog Anniversary "Sharan's Samayalarai"

I am so excited to celebrate this huge accomplished milestone in my life . This incredible adventurous ride has been challenging, interesting, exciting, stressful, rewarding which made this anniversary a moment to be grateful of !

My hearty thanks to all my friends, family, subscribers and readers who follow this blog in one way or another.

Whether you have commented, messaged or e-mailed, or even if you are just a "lurker" here, I appreciate your reading! YOU have been gracious, complimentary, and constructive with me.

I knew nothing in cooking when I came to US in Dec 2011. I had difficulties in cooking and I missed my parents so very badly. I needed an outlet to share my little victories whether it was putting dinner on the table or hanging a curtain rod. "Sharan's Samayalarai" was born shortly after I discovered, I actually enjoyed cooking. Amazing how things have changed since!!!

Many exotic ingredients available almost on our doorstep brought a whole new dimension to cooking for me. The fact that I started this blog made me explore other cultures cuisines and to be always searching for new ingredients and new ways of using them in various recipes.

I always expected this to be my private little corner of the web, but I had no idea I was embarking on a great adventure filled with such interesting people. Thank you for challenging me to be more vulnerable. A year ago I would never have imagined that, today I would have blog and viewers across the globe; It's been amazing to watch the blog grow from having 0 to 80+ thousand visitors.
