(Blogging) Excitement and Memories!

It’s exactly a month today since I joined WordPress. It’s been an exciting, enriching and reflective month.

Exciting as it helped me connect and converse with people around the world.

Enriching as I got to read great pieces of writing and see wonderful work of art and photography.

Reflective as I realised that I need to work really hard on my writing.

I managed to put up 20 posts  this past month. Quite prolific I thought! Perhaps it’s the novelty of it all. Perhaps, as the novelty dies, I may not be so prolific. Whatever the reason, it has been a great and memorable experience.

And it would not have been possible without the support and feedback of my dear fellow bloggers and followers. Every time I post a blog, I sit, like a child anticipating  gifts, with my I pad, checking every two minutes how many ‘likes’ and comments my post has garnered.

It brought back memories of the time when, as a child, I had penpals. Strangers from exotic countries became my friends. I would wait eagerly for their letters through which I learnt about them and their countries and proudly showed off their pictures at school.

It feels like déjà vu again. Only this time, I don’t have to wait for weeks, just minutes or hours for a reply. It is this that keeps me going, posting blog after blog , day after day. And I was pleasantly surprised when I recently received my ‘100 likes’ badge. I read a blog the other day about the value of ‘likes’ and people luring us to their site with’ likes’. But I’m going to turn a blind eye to that warning and celebrate!

Here’s to many more months of blogging , excitement and wonderful memories!
