Yes..this is my 100th post. Frankly I cant believe I’ve hit the ‘100’ mark. In fact when I started blogging about a year and half back, I didnt think I could stick by beyond a month, leave aside a year( which I completed in September 2009).
I can never thank my husband enough for actually urging me to start blogging. It was at his insistence that I decided to try out this medium to express my thoughts on things happening in and around my life. Although I’m pretty much sure that he is cursing himself now for that suggestion :D. He wouldn’t have imagined in his wildest of dreams that I would become a certified blog-addict.
I never considered myself a writer( I still don’t), so I didn’t know what to expect when I began to express my thoughts by jotting down in words. Barring my family and very few friends nobody really knew I was blogging. And honestly I didnt do anything either to reach out to others and make them aware of my page. Even though I used to come across some awe-inspiring posts, yet somehow I always resisted myself from leaving comments there. I felt my words would not do justice to those inspiring posts.
And when I got a comment from Nitya, a fellow blogger-mom for one of my posts, I realized to my utter joy that my posts could make a connect too. That comment made me feel really good about myself. That also made me realize that I should also start leaving my comments on others’ blogs and give them a chance to feel good too.
Blogging has given me a lot. For one it has given me a platform to speak my mind. It also gives me a sense of thrill and excitement which I feel while writing my posts. I feel immense satisfaction when I hit that ‘publish’ button and then a sense of anxiety filled with thrill again when I get an alert about the first comment on each post.
And I’ve also realized that I’m now more open to debates and discussions which I always stayed away from otherwise :). It feels nice to read the other side of your viewpoint.
And most importantly blogging has given me such wonderful friends in such a short span that it makes me feel as though I’ve known them for ages. Some of you have come to mean so much to me that the I truly treasure this closeness and bonding. That means a lot to me :).
Last but never the least I thank each and everyone of you who reads my posts and shares your thoughts on them and makes me feel so great. You overlook the fact that most of what I write seem gibberish and yet you read them patiently enough to leave your valuable comments 🙂
Thank you from the bottom of my heart :).
I can just go on and on but I realize that I have to rush to Namnam’s school. Its her graduation day today and R & I have to be there for her. So bye for now.
