It has been exactly one year since blogging and honestly it doesn’t feel like so much time has gone by.
I had to go back to my previous blog and check the date from the Archives and as I was already in there, I thought why not read the previous entries as well?
It is interesting to know what was your thought process was before. I still have more or less the same beliefs, but some of them have changed. I have changed over time, and it is often interesting to measure the difference.
Frankly I never expected a single comment on my first post. I mean why would anyone like to comment on something that is related only to me and which is not that interesting either.
But guess what? I got the first comment within 5 mins. And it was from Sammy. Though it was a simple Hello, it felt good.
And there were Pete, Katja and Bunny, Nik. They really made me feel good, maybe, without realizing it themselves. They gave me the courage to write the next entry and the next, until it became as easy as talking to myself.
One gets to read so many articles in newspapers and Magazines about blogging; about so many people into it and all. They give figures in millions.
But really, there are so many people who just start a blog and then god knows why, but they just disappear. One can read so much about ‘How to start a blog’, tips and tricks, but really, how many of us follow them? Fab has mentioned one such on her blog. How many of us have an agenda and a plan?
For me it is for the love of writing, which I didn’t know I have till I started blogging. Though sometimes it does seem like a chore, but most of the time it is just pure fun.
Whenever I heard someone has started a blog, I was one of those who used to raise eyebrows. I was ignorant. You cannot comment or you don’t have the right to comment on blogging unless you have tried it once.
But everything else apart, it has given me so many things I would never like to part with. One of them being such wonderful readers and friends. It is something I cherish and would continue to do so.
Here’s looking forward to many more years of it.
