Happy Birthday Mostly Economics: 10 years of Blogging!

April 29, 2016

It is amazing and humbling to see Mostly Economics complete its ten years of writing and blogging. The birthday was around a week ago but due to travel issues the celebrations got delayed.

The blog just started from a remote office corner in Mumbai due to sheer boredom and lack of work. Taking a cue from a cousin who started a blog, one just ventured into it and continued somehow.  It has been fascinating ever since and no amount of words can sum up the experience so far.

What has made it really special is to see the number of visitors coming to this blog and getting comments from some of them. In the end it is this one factor which has kept the writing going for so many years. The blog has registered 2.2 million hits so far and has 1604 subscribers who get all the blog posts for whatever they are worth. Truly humbling.

On this occasion, Mostly economics would like to thank all the visitors (both regular and once a while ones). It also requests them to chip in with their comments/suggestions on making Mostly economics a better blog. What should it do so that visitors can keep coming to this place for the next ten years as well? 🙂 Thanks in advance..

Till then, happy birthday once again and let the party continue.
