5 years of !!

Well, it all did not start with the question "Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?". 

It started with me realizing that I need to have a space for myself on the Internet and the best way to do that is to register a nice domain with just Yusuf on it....and what do you know - I was lucky to see the availability of with my favorite domain registrar - (who do a great job in customer service!)

The next thing I remember is getting an account on's RapidBlog wordpress blog hosting service that was newly introduced then, for quite a small amount per year with all data on the cloud. I could proudly say that I was a cloud computing campaigner.

The next 4 years of were spent in the cloud, with not so frequent updates to the blog's theme, playing with wordpress plugins, crashing the blog once with a wordpress update, missing the renewal of the Rapidblog and following up with's customer service to get it back up, trying to write reviews of every movie I watch, trying to get reviews of those that my friends watch, trying to get reviews of IPL (Indian Premier League) from cricketing fanatic friends of mine!

The most important change today is that is now in Blogger which provides a free hosting platform J. It took a while to export from Wordpress to Blogger and now things are fine and dandy.

I always share my very first post - Welcome to whenever I write a happy birthday blog.
So here we are, at this 5 years juncture, with a short look-back of what was published at this blog. No questions yet again for the coming years as well.

I'd like to join your hands in wishing this blog a very happy birthday and for the more to come!
