Welcome to my new abode!

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.

  6. Cheers! Here’s to new Deeps.

    Welcome to the WordPress family. It looks like I am welcoming you to some kind of cult. Ha..ha..ha..

    I started on WP but I have experienced that once many bloggers moved to WP, friends have come closer and all because of good comment interaction. Many a times I want to reply to a comment on blogger but then becomes lazy. WP allows it so it is going to be fun here.

    D:Yes,Solilo thats one of the things that attracted me to this space-the easy interaction with other bloggers.

    As for templates which many complaint. I would say that WP even though doesn’t allow Template edit still it has variety. The one you chose is really preofessional. You can always spice it up with a personal banner of your little cutie pie.

    D:The template cant be changed?I was thinking of going in for a different font for my blog title.So that cant be done is it??

    Let me know if you need any help. You might already be knowing this still you can refer this. It also has a link of Chirag’s how to create a blogroll.

    D:Thanks so much,Solilo.Will chek the link and Chirag’s too:))

    Have fun. Happy WP blogging.
