As the year slowly comes to an end, I take a look back at my 11 month old baby blog. I started out with so much fire….. so much enthusiasm. I had a million things to write about. I was going to have a blast with this. I was going to be the best blogger ever! (did I hear someone cough) Somewhere along the line, the fire began to flicker out. Not because I lost my passion, Not because I didn’t even know what to post. Life simply interfered and made it very difficult to type down my many ideas and I really didn’t know how to write short quick posts. At a point, I became quite ashamed to visit my OWN blog. Ridiculous, I know. Maybe in 2014, I would learn to cease my incessant ramblings and simply get to the point………Maybe…………Probably not. I like to ramble.
At a point, someone suggested I post entertainment news since I couldn’t type. I remember thinking, what would then make me stand out from the 5 million or so bloggers already covering the Entertainment section. It is not as if I can get the news before they do. What would make me different? I didn’t just want to be part of a crowd. I want to create a place for me. Where I rule. I may never get the hundred of thousands of daily clicks doing what I do, but at least I would like doing it. Nothing more important than loving what you do, and not just what people expect you to do.
To my credit (which is kinda the only one I can be slightly happy about), I have managed to keep in touch with most of the people who wrote to me this year. Thank you all for writing in. You made my blog a lot more interesting and I have made some lifelong friends. To those whose stories I never published, either due to similarities to already published stories or the fact that I found their tales a little too incredulous and unbelievable, ma binu. No vex for me. I would like to say all the people who wrote in, got their happily ever after, but that would be a lie.
Over the course of the next few days, I would try to post the follow ups of those who wrote in with their stories. Tune in for that. Till then, happy holidays. Merry Christmas. Try spend the last days of 2013 happy with family.
Thank you all.
