Avish has just published the results of his blog survey in Mauritius and he has given me a Blogger of Honour award for (I quote)Â being one of the earliest Mauritian blogger still blogging. I hope I’ve not been given this award because I am old (as I still consider myself a young man even though I’m 35 ;-) )
In January 2007, I wrote a post with the titleÂ Why do I blog?Â In it I quoted Sam Ruby who wrote in 2002:
â€œSo why do I blog? Because it works. It finds worthwhile things for me to read. It helps me refine and focus my thoughts and be more productive too. And most of all, [it] creates the opportunity to interact with more interesting people. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s in it for me.â€
Thanks Avish both for the award and for having taken this excellent initiative :-)
congratulations! :D thats an equivalent to Lifetime ACHIEVEMENT Award! :P
sincere congratulations, keep blogging n show the way to noobs! :)
(lyk me.. )
Congrats for the awards… :-)
Well, its true that the there are only a few bloggers left from the first generation of mauritian bloggers. Some of them blog, but on a irregular frequency, but they still do participate in blog discussions.
with a smiley like that you would scare people away.
The one reason I don’t blog or have a website is because I don’t have anything to put there, and I think everyone who is the same situation as me should do the same instead of having emptyish blogs.
There are some people who do have interesting blogs and it’s a much better idea to participate on their blogs, and yours seems to be one great one – which is why I will lurk around to annoy you once in a while with my thoughts lol. Keep up the good work! :)
P.S. As for your blog design, why not make the background image static? It ain’t much but am a great fan of these ;)

Congrats again. No ofcourse its not coz you are old…infact I gave all the awards based on the votes but wanted to give one based on the dedication of the blogger and surely this blog satisfies the criteria :-) If I am not wrong this blog is more than 4 years old and I dunno any other Mauritian one who have this blogging dedication for so long. Blogging Rules ;-) Keep up the very nice posts.
As far as I can see on my Mac using Safari, the background is static. It is not a plain colour though.
Yeah. I started in March 2004 so therefore that would be 4 1/2 years of blogging. It has been a lot of fun and I’ve learned a lot.
its been some time now that i visit noulakaz, learned a lot . thanks
Congrats and keep up the Good work :)
Btw the smiley kinda reminds me of D.K.Maripuri (another mastermind)
You are surely becoming old.That’s why Avish gave you that award.
**Life time achievement award**
Congratz for the award.I won’t ask for a party because I won’t get it..
**cough cough some one from these comments owe me like 5 parties cough cough**
4.5 years of blogging.Awesome.
We are still “kids”.Hope to be on the same level as you one day.
Have a nice day.
Thanks for the nice words ;-)
As for blogging for four and a half years, I have to confess that I didn’t find it too tough. As a matter of fact, I love to communicate (too much for some…) and blogging is an excellent means to let others know what you think. Having comments and, therefore, “friends” is also an excellent bonus.
I am also fortunate to have a wife who is Internet-savvy and who understands the need for a blog i.e. I don’t have to justify the few hours spent per week every other day.
