Hey everybody 😀 Hope you all are doing great 😉 Here’s wishing you all a  happy and prosperous new year 😀

I’m happy to share that Swarupa’s World crossed 500,000 views last month 😀 😀 😀  So this first post of 2020 is dedicated to each and every reader of mine, many of whom have been with me since the first year of my blog 😀 A huge THANK YOU to all of you 😀 😀 😀

I made a short video last month after my blog reached the big milestone 😀 Check it out 😉

It’s been a lovely journey for my seven-year-old Swarupa’s World 😀 An absolute delight when it crossed 1000 views after a little more than a month of coming into being……and a little more than a year later came my 100th blogpost. Some months later, it completed two years (Two Years of Blogging)…and at three years old, crossed 100000 views 😀 And now, at seven, it’s crossed 500,000 viewsWOW 😀

And it’s all thanks to you, my wonderful readers from across the world 😀 The kind comments that I receive from you all, are a constant source of joy, happiness and encouragement for me 😀

Till date, my blog has received around 700 appreciative comments. I wish I had saved the warm feedback that I received through my Contact Me page. I regret not doing so, especially now, when I’m about to share with you all around 200 of the lovely comments 😀

Before I share the comments, I would like to share my blog statistics with you all, as of now 😀
