1st Anniversary of “William’s Tales”

05 May

Today – May 5, 2008 – is the one-year anniversary of my blog “William’s Tales”. A year ago on this day, I had stepped into this amazing blog-sphere, and started my activity of publishing my Articles. The whole year remained full of wonder and pleasure to me. With the technical support of Munish Musa, my nephew at Canada; I could concentrate fully towards my creative work. Thus, the real credit for the success of this blog goes to him.

It was really very difficult for me to predict the future of my blog. By observing certain etiquettes and protocols of a Blogger and Blogging, I have made the least efforts from my end to promote the viewership of my Blog. Some friends, my Blog referrers and many well-wishers have done their best to bring my Blog to the knowledge of the people worldwide on my behalf. I am at loss of words to thank them for their valuable support in this regard.

Through new dashboard of ‘Wordpress’, I have collected some statistics of my blog which I am thrilled to share with my viewers.

  • Categories – 80 & Tags – 144.
  • Classification of Articles:

    • Short Essays – 15
    • Articles – 21
    • Short Stories – 15
    • Poetry – 7
    • Misc. – 3

Extracts from some Comments:

Troy Morrison says, “I very much enjoyed the way you put it together.” (Character and Reputation)

Ash Dude says, “I have read your blog with interest and would urge you to publish a book as well… (About me)

Arvind Joshi says, “I liked your spread in the sky with imagination of Kanta.” (My better-half, a Gujarati story)

Anisa Musa says, “I hope you willpost more about him (Late Dr. Ali Musa), as I enjoyed reading those two.” (Not All Doctors Money Hungry)

Suzanne Langley says, “I have visited this site on many an occasion, but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.” (A man’s household foes!)

Krishnamoorthy A. N. says, “It is a very interesting and thought provoking. It opened my vistasfor my son who also embarked on commerce stream.” (Power of Determination)

Alex says, “Very nicely put. I completely agree with you on sex selectiveabortionit should be considered as conscious attempt/crime to murder.” (Mercy Killing or Merciful Death – A Debate)

Zohrin says, “This article might bring smile on their face.”(Mercy Killing or Merciful Death –A Debate)

Roohi Payala says, “I totally agree with u, but I can’t understand 1 line we can reach a truth, but we cannot reach the truth. What do u mean by this line?” (Mercy Killing or Merciful Death – A Debate)

I have received some requests from my Readers that some Essays related to character building, human behavior, social life, spirituality, family, education etc. might be translated into Gujarati and re-posted for Gujarati Readers. I, very regretfully and politely, dishonor the request with the only reason that it is a time consuming process and my new creation might be affected adversely. Even though, I have got published two translated Essays (1) Honesty; and (2) Divorce – Legal, but Undesirable, as a guest blogger on “”, a Gujarati web site of my friend Mr. Vijaykumar Shah of Houston (USA). My viewers may visit this site for its rest quality publishing(s) also. In future, as and when it is possible, I’ll try my best to honor the above request; but, I cannot assure firmly.

Last but not the least, I thank you, my Readers around the globe, for visiting my blog, leaving comments, encouraging me by mail and telephone and making my blog more and more flourished day by day. My special thanks to ‘wordpress’ also that has provided me a platform to perform my role as a blogger, reach distant areas of the world through my authorship and have a number of new contacts of the people worldwide. The list of many others who have contributed, in one way or another, to build a very little hut of my small success of “William’s Tales” is fairly lengthy. I thank to all them for their moral support extended to my works and me, open or disguised.

I can be e-mailed at for any communications.

Thanking you, once again

    salam Masa,
    i have always been very impressed by you and your overall personality. And when ( almost a year ago) i heard about your blog, i was even more impressed and proud of having such a humble and intelligent person in our village kanodar. I wish the whole community ( specially, youth) of our village kanodar should read your inspiring blog, as it is for me. This is a need of the TIME. Wish you all the best and MAY ALMIGHTY GRANT YOU LONG HEALTHY LIFE.
