April 14th is [unofficially] celebrated as 'Blogger Appreciation Day'.
In Darren's words,
I’ve been chatting with a few bloggers of late who’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps about their blogging - so perhaps everyone could do with a little lift.
Lets spend today doing a few random acts of kindness and encouragement for our fellow bloggers.
I’m not writing this in the hope of getting more emails myself (I’ve got my share for today already) - but instead want to encourage you to take a moment to email another blogger and to thank them for something that you’ve appreciated about what they’ve done lately. In a sense it’s a ‘Pay it Forward’ exercise.
We’re in it together, blogging is about collaboration and together going further than we can by ourselves - so why not help another blogger today by shooting them a word of encouragement, a pep talk, a congratulations, an idea to help them improve or some other positive constructive message. Better still, do it publicly on your blog and tell the world about another blogger who you appreciate.”

One thing I would truly cherish from my 8-month long blogging is my friendship with this wonderful person, so sweet, so lovable that she even managed to write an impromptu poem on me. Thank you sweety!
People come and go
The magic of life is so
But rare few make a mark
And shine they do among the surroundings dark
One among the few is you
Oh Siri - U r the best amongst my friends - so wonderful and soooooo true!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for brightening up my dull, boring days with her contagious smile (or should I say giggle!..:D).
Thanks Sailu for letting us all know about such a day - an entire day dedicated to say 'Thank You' to all you wonderful folks out there who appreciate my work with your sweet comments, invite to your blogs and effortlessly whip up appetizing dishes for all of us - every single day.
Wishing all of my co-bloggers a very happy and blissful life ahead and Happy Sri Rama Navami. May God shine all of his blessings on us.
