Warning: A sentimental post. As usual not thinking and writing whatever is coming to mind because its about family. And when its about family we do not think!
Ten months ago, I was just a failed blogger. For three consecutive years I had been creating new blogs every New Years’s day, and then abandoning them. Yeah! just like that. Easy no? After all making a new blog and then abandoning it is all but free! I made these new blogs thinking ‘New Year is New Me’ but did I ever succeed? You guessed it right, never! I may be wrote one or two or may be three post and then ended up dreading over the fact that my blogging life never picked up! One question, I just had one question, that why in the world could my blogging life not pick up pace? Why couldn’t I be loved and read? It was me who was abandoning the blogs but in return I myself felt abandoned.
I am still not well acclimatised with the world of professional blogging, that is a very very long way to go. All I know is that my blog is my diary. All I know is that a blog is a diary. My smartphone took my diary away. My smartphone took my pen away. My smartphone took my desk away. My complains for the smartphone can never end. Yes, you guessed it right again, I am a diary person. I see too much, I hear too much, I feel too much and I write too much though I may not say too much! The need to write, record, revisit and re-read, it was this that forced me year after year to go back and start new blogs again and again and I even did. I did try, but trying was not enough because I was alone. I was short of company, and not every alone-time is a good time, because sometimes, we do need company . We need acknowledgement, we need appreciation, we need discussion, we need communication! And, I learnt what all was I falling short off for my blogging life only when I met the Blogchatter Family!
I may be the most disappointing kid this family has have seen, but I love them. I love them to the core! They are reason that fifteen of my poems are out there, somewhere on this crazy thing we call Internet and anyone and everyone can read them. Now, my poems being on the Internet is a big thing because just ten months ago, mind it, just ten months ago, I was a person who could dare not share her poems with anyone. Forget sharing, people around me never knew that I penned down poems in my free time. I was shy, I was awkward and I never opened up. I am not saying I am introvert, no that’s not me! I am a people’s person! I am lovely to talk to, I am the heart of parties, I am happiness when I am around but I am very personal. I just don’t share! Hence, when this family started sharing and caring and showering all the love, I slowly found myself getting out of the closet. I even have nineteen followers on my blog today which is too big of a number for me! Not kidding, because why would anyone want to read rants and stupid poems those come out of nowhere? But this family is crazy! They not just come and read my stuff, but also share and comment and like! Woah! Too much to ask for. And during the Alexa campaign, I was nothing but blown away!
Jai, my blogbuddy from Blogbuddy 2.0 is one person whose been a tremendous motivation. Reading what she writes up on her blog, forces me to come back and write something down here! Then there is ModernGypsy! She is definitely elder to me, but Man! I have seen this blogger grow! She is one hundred percent of pure motivation. Her art is taking her places, Blogchatter is taking her to places! So is Blogchatter to Cafenined Words! What Blogchatter has given to me, is irreplaceable. It’s incomparable.
This post too just like all others is a last minute thing, and I know it’s not fair on my part to be so irregular, when at the same time there is a team of diligently hard working people burning their midnight oil planning campaigns and crusades for us! Hence before I end this post, I want to apologise to the Blogchatter family and particularly Richa for having repeatedly disappointed you, but believe it or not, if there is one good thing that happened to me in 2016, it was meeting Blogchatter via Blogbuddy 2.0.
You guys are LOVE.
