This Independence day, IndiBlogger and all its members are going to celebrate five years of existence. Some have come early and some have come just a few days back, but we are all a part of this great platform. So, let's cebebrate this event by sharing our thoughts about IndiBlogger, the journey here, the difference it has made to our lives and anything else that we feel is appropriate. And any presents for IB: a small poem, an art or something innovative......? Smile

That is quite an analysis, Ranjith. Well Done :) And Isnt that a portrait sketch of Renie? Amazing! You should definitely be running an art blog! Cool

I must be thankful to God that someone had identified the person in that photograph! (I though that none would be able to do so...Sealed) An art blog (of random strokes and lines which need not mean something) has been there on my list since a few months ago.

And, would you try to find the encoded message in those colourful 0's and 1's..... Smile

Ranjith, the IndiComplicator Tongue out I have been staring at that encoded picture for the last 10 minutes with no apparent success and if I continue to stare at it for a few minutes more, I fear I will turn color blind Tongue out How about assigning that task to Renie himself? Innocent

And about my journey here, it definitely feels great to contribute a small addition (cant say of its value though Tongue out) towards the humongous statistical achievement add-ups of this wonderful platform, IndiBlogger Smile

Though I have been with Indi for 4 of the 5 years, my blogging has begun to revolve around Indi for the last 6-8 months. I have done 37 posts for 15 contests out of the 32 conducted by Indi. Finally won prizes in 3 contests as well.

 Finally attended a meet as well. Somehow was too overhwhelmed meeting my blogger friends that I could not catch up with the Indi organizers at the meet.

Enjoyed both chat and forum and now been made Indipolice as well. Before I know it I have become a complete Indiblogger and I have a whole set of friends due to indi. So I guess I definitely have lot to thank them for.

And now hope the new publishing initiative with harper collins turns out to be something to thank them for once again.

Wishing a Happy Anniversary to my favourite blogging platform. I don't remember it correctly but I am sure I have been a member of Indiblogger for more than 3 years now. I will remain grateful forever for the exposure and many beautiful writers I have met here. Lately though, I have been witnessing continued hijacking of Indivine by an annoying bunch of fake characters. It is my request to the powers that be to restrict post submissions to 2 and post promotions to 50 per 24 hours. I honestly believe it is impossible to write more than 2 posts, unless of course one were a Fareed Zakaria, or read more than 50 posts per day.

we already have a discussion of it...... and btw if you have a day off and you reading only comic entries ....... I think I can cross 50

@Yatin Khurana: Apparently, your 'discussion' didn't stop the abuse of the platform and that is why I am saying that.

('~') but it did gave a reason as to why your method is not that effective ........ *peace *

Happy Anniversary Indi. Way to go. Keep up the good work Renie. With all these contests raining cats and dogs, and now this oppotunity for the bloggers to get published,it's an unmatched exquisite initiative in the blogosphere. Hope Indi reaches great heights soon in the future.

@ Captain I myself didn't observe it! Smile Was that really solved or was it accidental? Wink

I am sure it was not accidental as most of the people don't even know that it's binary language.

@CA Do you mean I am sure it was accidental as most of the people don't even know that it's binary language.
