Few years back, viewing my livejournal profile page was like a hobby, I kept looking at the numbers, the increasing number of mutual friends, the increasing number of posts, the increasing number of comments and so on. I hoped one day they would reach a milestone, a milestone of 1000 posts, a milestone of 100 mutual friends.. Many friends moved out of LJ to other sites, some stopped blogging altogether, people become lazy, busy, passive, stop commenting/sharing, and the numbers which were once growing, came to a standstill. Leave alone looking at the profile page, I have no time myself to see, observe, record and post.

What becomes a dead hobby suddenly gets rejuvenated, when you stumble on somebody's new blog. You realize, "Hey i used to write also, where are my thoughts these days"  And the cycle begins when you wake up again into the world of blogging, to write, read and share more. Today, I looked up my profile page and realized my blog has 100 mutual friends( including the passive ones).

My 100th friend is soansbard . Well the story is, though I know Prashanth through family, I stumbled on his blog on blogspot and realized he has been writing there for the last couple of years. Though his blog is majorly financial, I loved the way he put things there connecting Finance to random things in daily life. Well, apart from Finance, you will discover the musician, the poet, his hilarious one-liners and a lot of surprises in store. The only good thing I could do was to hijack him to LJ and request him to post his updates here too.  Add him to your friends list, I can guarantee your blog journey is going to be more fun.

And let this milestone be not the end, but the continuation of our blogging journey. Thank you all for being here always.

once you add him, your number is going to increase by 1 :)
Having a lesser number but regular people on LJ is itself a blessing :)

I always admire that you find time to do a lot of things other than your normal routine. I am glad I found you here. :)

wooot congrats on reaching 100...:)
I have been on LJ for a while i still dont know whats the best way to find people on here for some reason, the way i found the ones i have now was by searching a few keywords of interest and was lucky to find a handful of gems including you ;)

I didnt think about it, I usually find people when somebody comments on a friends page and I find him/her interesting. I will try your way also..

I think you are the first among my buddies to add him, so yay to you :)

Don't know why I haven't added you before! I haven't counted my friends on LJ as most of them have moved on....but I enjoy all the other blogs (blogspot, wordpress, etc) too!

Thank You Deponti. Getting you as a friend is an added bonus, I have always loved reading all your updates, I will be happy to receive your thoughts and comments on my mine too :)
