I remember the events as vividly as it was just yesterday. I faced serious personal crisis. I had a bleak future, no friends and suffering through the traumatic episode. I tried to bury myself in reading but found that it can only mask the frustrations and loneliness it didn’t provide me the space to flutter my wings. I always wanted the world to know who am I, what I feel and how I think. Wanted to make friends, go places and create new experiences. That’s when I took up the blogging in June 2004. Blogging not only provided me the space to vent my emotions but created a platform to rediscover myself. I started writing about assorted subjects, did book reviews. I was a tiny drop of rebel in the ocean of blogging. Slowly people started recognizing me, started appreciating my work made some fans and followers. The journey had been like a roller-coaster ride like sunshine and rain. Writing to attract some comments. If I get commented I will be writing with new vigor else with renewed energy to get myself recognized. Slowly I started getting a few regular comments from the community and writing fraternity, who later formed a bond which couldn’t be broken. Made a few friends for life and a few enemies too. The biggest enemy is my health which tries its best to keep me down and away from blogging and friends who keep encouraging me to write and defeat it. Love you all those who have been in this journey with me and also love them who have left me in between. There will be times when I will be requiring the comforting hands of my friends on my back to sail past the troubles and I am sure I will find them right behind me.
I have been associated with #Blogchatter since a very long time and now I have now joined the next campaign Blog Buddy 3.0. Blogbuddy, is a lot more about quality of talks and being friends with co-bloggers. Blogbuddy starts in November with bloggers who are brought together on same platform and divided into smaller groups. We have named our group name as #WRITEON. Blogbuddy 3.0 is third season of blogbuddy which is now better, best and bigger.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
