It all started with someone discussing a cooking hobby over
the internet – introducing me to a blog… How excited I was when my first blog
was put out there. I waited hours on end to hit the re-fresh button, waiting
for some people out there to come and read, comment, criticize, slander, love
what I write …! The journey started there… And then it has been a no looking
back kind of a game. Each experience amounting
to a dash of frantic typing, hitting back space, re-typing and then editing,
finding pictures, scouting for content which readers love.
The best kind of
blog posts have been those which have been straight from the heart, ….The Cherry Eyed Sherpa
I still remember writing this in one shot … and without
editing putting it out there. I cannot imagine having to change any one of those
words on the world wide web… I meant every word I have said. And then to get
all those amounts of emails from all of you sharing similar stories and
experiences makes me feel special, that I have a gift of words, which I should
put to some greater good.
I was laughed at and ridiculed for obsessing over my blog…
spending way too much time I could have used in maybe making some money, cause
a blog is for the passionate, not for those who think money is the end goal of
spending time on something. And then there are those out of the blue calls from
a friend in the middle of the night telling you how she saw Wilderness as a reference
for a post by someone in Australia !!! Like when did the 3rd world
become an inspiration to the 1st world ??
Today, I am going to be short on words… today is about Thanking you all for reading, commenting, emailing, facebooking, twittering and all
those modes of communicating and reaching out to me. Encouraging me to use my
idle time and just writing !
