Six of My Top Blog Posts in 2009

In the year 2009, I took blogging seriously and have posted over 130 posts in my blog. It is almost like a blog post every third day. I am happy that I could manage time to blog about the things I like and hopefully everyone else who read those also enjoyed.
There are some blog posts that gave me more satisfaction than others. I enjoyed writing those and people liked reading them. Here is a compilation of six of my blog posts that fall under the above category – gave me a lot of satisfaction while writing and also lot of appreciation from readers.

Pregnancy 101 – Where East Does Not Meet West As YetThis one was written as soon as we had our baby. Having seen only the hospital system in India, I found out so many new things when my wife was pregnant and during my visit to the hospital. This post was born out of those experiences.

In US, it is said that everyone lives from paycheck to paycheck. Using credit cards are the order of the day. Last eight years in US has taught me so many ways to use to credit cards efficiently without falling into the traps set by credit card companies. Another blog post that gave me so much satisfaction.
A blog post I published when I was about to cross 100,000 visitors in my blog. This was an answer to lot of my friends who used to ask me the question what motivates me to blog.
A blog post that has so many memories attached to it – I have seen so many strikes, violence and unrest in my school/college days in Kerala that writing this blog brought back so many memories. I am happy that it evoked a good number of comments from the readers.
Even though I graduated from ASU in 2007, I still have a lot of associations with my Alma mater. My wife was a student in ASU till May 2009. I have seen students struggling in the school due to this economic recession. This blog post was an attempt to compare the recession of 2002/03 when I was a student and the present one and to point out how this one is worse than the previous one. Another post that gave me immense pleasure while writing.
This blog post was written when the “cattle class” and “holy cow” controversy involving Dr Shashi Tharoor was at its peak and was re-tweeted more than 40 times.
Hopefully I could post more meaningful posts in 2010 than I did in 2009.
