2010 in review

I just realized that I have posted about 3 posts in the new year, without wishing everyone a very happy new year. So, here it is(although a wee bit late), ‘Happy New Year Everyone’. Hope all of you have a great time this year and get to fulfill your dreams for 2011.

New years are very pensive affairs for me. I reminisce a lot about the events of the year gone by, rather than celebrate the dawn of a new year. But, then the more I reminisce the more reasons to celebrate.

Anyway, all philosophy aside: 2010 turned out to be a great year for me. And one of the great things that happened in 2010 was the fact that I started “Oh Taste n See”. I hope it is as much fun and learning for you as it is for me.

Here are some stats that I had gotten from WordPress this morning that made me go about with a big smile on my face all day today.

WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!
