My Best This Year

At the top of the keyword list today is 'www.how to prepare cauliflower gurma.com'.

Another amusing one is 'soup counter in kolkata'.

Yet another is "not into electronic gadgets".

The best of 2009 was when I hit upon the idea of paying my blog's vital statistics more attention. This did not result in any improvement in the numbers visiting my blog, but became a source of amusement for me and later, my readers, when I began writing about how people landed on my blog.

Here's the post that started this series. It's been missing for a while, but I'll bring it back.

Some other mad moments came a few weeks earlier. I intended to fill uncertain silences with something like this, but didn't do it, somehow. I hope to do so in 2010.

Then there was some musing, which seemed to touch a chord.

A carrotty post in which I had a brainwave to use orange wherever carrot was mentioned. And a similar, pink post where I invented Beetermilk Soup, which had many of you wondering if I came out of the proverbial (well, not really) facility that also processes nuts and muttering 'What will she think of next?'

There was an eventful anniversary that was hailed as a good experiment. Only a few takers, but I'm still in love with myself for having the idea!

There was a short-lived baking binge and hopefully, a slimmer me!

This post is off to one of the best.

See you all in the new year - make the most of the rest of this one!


  1. It is indeed LOL moment whenever you post those search strings. Agreed and granted you had the best event but for some us for whom writing doesn't come easily a month was not enough. One more time perhaps?

    Which reminds me, I gotta go and do my review.
    I have to mention yours was one of the most fun and unique event I took part in. Wish I knew yours during the grindless gravy event. Oh well...

  14. The Cauliflower Gurma must have a tamilian flavour! I saw a signboard in Chennai that said - Badam Gheer ( for Badam Kheer)- not to make fun of the clan - I am married to one!
    Happy New Year. Lovely blog, nice posts.

  15. Cauliflower "gurma" sounds delicious. So, how *do* you make it? ; }
