First Needles from the Haystack

Three is this day's lucky number. Today is the third year anniversary of my blog, Before the Eastern Sunset. It is three years ago since I first posted my very first blog post in this blog. I remember during those days that I wrote nothing other than things the rumblings of my hopeless romantic heart. Thankfully, I overgrew those things and I wrote on things that interests me and. This blog had been my online companion for these past three years and it still help me in giving me a diversion from the stressful activities of my daily life.
Number 3

For the third year anniversary of my blog, I would like to look back and thank those people who became my very first pals here in my blog. They are the ones who inspired mo to go on writing. Without their comments and continued visits, this blog may not reach its third year. These people have their own blogs but some of them already stopped blogging. Many of them are still visiting me constantly and always have time to say “Hello.”

Active blogger or not, I am still thankful for them:
Who first visited on my blog post “Two Weeks Without TV and Other Things

Lester Cavestany
Who first visited me on my blog post, “Justice for Chris Mendez.
 Mark Angelo
Who first visited me in “Unlucky Friday.
 Allan Baredo (Lantaw)
Who first visited on “On Working Abroad.
Who first visited on my blog post, “Laiya Aplaya.
Liza (Azil)
Who first visited on “Prince Caspian.
Who first visited on “Operation Valkyrie.
Who first visited on “Joint Security Area.
Who first visited on “Happy Mother's Day Mama.

Finding friends like them are like finding needle in a haystack. But thanks to them, I persevered in blogging and found more great friends. Thanks be to GOD.

Of the bloggers mentioned here, the only inactive is Mark Angelo. I guess he is busy with his. work It would be great if start blogging again.

I got the idea for this post from good friend Bluedreamer.
