Almost exactly a year ago, on the 16th of March 2008, this blog was born. It started off as an experiment in open, creative writing, and soon became quite well-read. Celebrating the birthday of this blog can be quite a task, and would involve the following:

  1. Thanking all the initial readers of MirrorCracked, without whom, it wouldn’t have been possible to come this far.
  2. Acknowledge all the major critics I’ve had on MirrorCracked.
  3. Write flowing eulogies to all you beautiful people on my blogroll.
  4. Create a set of awards to those bloggers who are close to my heart.
  5. Be a clichΓ© and display the blog’s overwhelming statistics that have accumulated over the past year.
  6. List out and apologize to all the assholes that I’ve slandered on this blog.
  7. Create the new ‘Testimonials” page, to display all the testimonials I’ve received for the blog so far.
  8. Figure out more things to do, because I’m sure this list isn’t complete.

It’s quite a nostalgic week ahead. I’m humbled. I guess I don’t really have many words to describe it.
