I’ve been mulling over it for sometime.Ever since I witnessed Indyeah,IHM,Usha & Smitha making the shift from blogger to wordpress I have been tempted to try it out on myself.Then the final straw came from Ummon.And I had to jump in the fray.
Why this move?Well,for one,it is high time I changed my blog title.I cant be ‘Starting up’ forever!I chose the title to suggest my literal start up to taking the first step towards writing in general and speaking my mind in particular.I was used to speaking up,but with my family and friends only.But pouring out to the world,that too strangers,and making a connection in the process?That was a first.
And now,over the course of 9months,I’ve had the good fortune of ‘meeting’ some wonderful set of people through their posts who felt like me,went through similar experiences as me,wrote about things that I believed in,inspired me with their impeccable way with words,and who really encouraged me to open up further by reading my posts patiently and gracing me with comments.Today,thanks to them,I no more feel like a fresher or out-of-place in this arena.
Hence the change in title.Which will now reflect more on my thoughts and experiences happening in and around me being shared on this page as I perceive.
Secondly,since I had made up my mind to change the title,I decided to go in for a new look.And after having visited the blogs of Madmomma,Solilo and more recently,the above mentioned five,I liked the look and feel of their pages.So I wanted to see if I would feel the same if I incorporated it on myself.
So here I am,with a new domain,a new blog title.It will take me a while to know fully well what this space has in store for me.I’m still discovering the many features that it has and trying to apply them here.So,all you people who’ve been here,done this,if I’m missing out on anything please enlighten me.
One thing is for sure.I’m already feeling much at home here.
