MCT in a new look !

I was just browsingΒ throughΒ various themes and i came across “Something Fishy” πŸ˜€
And instantly i liked it.

So in this new year 2013, here’s My Cup of Tea in a new look !!!

The aqua blue color, the fishes, the turtles and the jelly-fishes, the whales, the bright orange titles, the awesome animation and most of all the “Get me outta here !” worm on the left when you scroll down a bit.
I just love it πŸ™‚
I also designed a simple header image matching with the theme.

Please share your views/comments/criticism about MCT in its new look …

Here’s a pic i clicked specially for wishing all of you a very “Happy New Year 2013” !!!

My First Blog Anniversary !!!

My Cup of Tea turned 1-year-old on Oct 2nd, 2012. I am so happy. I was busy with my mid-semester exams so i could not post on that day itself. And so i was craving for a Sunday when i could make this post :D. This one year journey has been awesome. I have discovered a new me via my blog. MCT is the first thing i mention as my hobbies (even in interviews) and it feels good to see that most people are interested in it (more so if they themselves are bloggers :)).

This journey has been memorable because of the blogging friends i made all over the world. It feels great to imagine that we live in different parts of the world, have our own very busy lives, we all face challenges on the journey of life, yet we all connect with each other via blogging. Blogging brings me in a completely different world πŸ™‚ Today i would like to thank each one of you who have read my posts, liked them or have been gracious enough to take some time out of their busy lives and commented on a post. By reading my post, you read a part of my life, my experiences, my journey. Each one of you has inspired me to keep going on and post something new and interesting.

I can proudly say that MCT has been one of the best things i have done in my life. Even the thought of MCT brings a spark of happiness in me. Reading back through old posts, sometimes i am surprised how i could have written it πŸ˜€ But such things happen and we discover our own potential and capabilities. And so i believe that we have the ability to surprise ourselves πŸ™‚

In one year i posted 45 posts including this one. I had imagined much more. But its ok πŸ™‚ If you ever feel that i have forgotten MCT as i am not posting frequently, then you are wrong. I promise that atleast once in a day a thought of MCT passes my mind. Sometimes on a free day i sit down and read all your posts. My frequency of posting may have decreased due to my busy college life, but i can assure you that MCT will be a part of me, ALWAYS.

I still remember that day very clearly. 2nd October 2011. Since a long time i had been thinking of having a blog. I had done a lot of research on whether to go for blogger or WordPress (finally i picked WordPress, lucky me :)). I just could not decide on a name for my blog. I wanted it to be perfect so that i never feel like changing it again. And so on 2nd October last year a Sunday πŸ™‚ i finally decided to create my blog. When entering the name of blog suddenly it flashed “My Cup of Tea”. And that was it. I just love it soooo much since that day.Β  Here is the link to my first blog post πŸ™‚ My First Post !

Once again a Very Happy First Blog Anniversary MCT !!!
