I have finally made a century!!!
I have finally completed a century. 100 posts……. When I started I never thought I would see this day specially considering my consistency in such matters……. BUT I just about made it and this is the 100th post!!!
I started my blog in June 2007 after I was very impressed with my visit to a friend’s blog (Kaushik) and lots of other blogs after that. Hubs had been after me for a very long time to design a site for us which I had conveniently postponed. Designing sites for money is different and designing one for yourself is quite a cumbersome thing specially because there is no money involved. You lose the motivation to do it. This was just a very easy option.
When I started I had no idea what to write in it. I wasn’t much of a traveler nor a keen observer so photoblogs were out. I don’t like cooking so cookery blogs are out nor do I like maintaining scrapbooks so that was out too. Now diary writing was something very comfortable to me. So I started writing on the lines of it. I don’t write well but I write what I feel.
My Ma started me on writing my journal when I was in the third standard as I was a classic case of someone with anger management problems. So my journal was my outlet. I could hardly form sentences then but I wrote and still do. Unlike earlier days when nobody ever read my diary now lot of people do. Though I must say that in my blog I have to really filter out controversial things and in some cases erase post after post.
There was a slack then because I got busy and in all my spare time I started playing scrabble in Betapet………… that was a scrabble site. The site gave scrabble a new meaning and it was marvelous. I also met a whole lot of very nice people there……. including Dhir. It was real fun playing and challenging myself to new heights. I even used to take holidays from work to play. Totally addicted!!! But all good things have to come to an end…… Betapet closed!!! I was totally heartbroken!!! They do have a swedish site where I sometimes go just for the heck of it. The other scrabble site Lexulous is boring with lots of people and it is quite honestly very disgusting!!! Sometimes in midst of frustration I even contemplate learning swedish just to go back there to play.
After Betapet closed there was a huge lacuna and I had no idea what I should do with my time because even reading was getting monotonous, when I started blogging again. I haven’t stopped since then. Though I am not very regular I do write and I enjoy it here. I also have made friends in the blogosphere. It is a good place and I get to read so much. I love gappa and sucharita’s blog and kavi’s blog and also malvika’s blog, anuja’s blog and iyer’s blog and ofcourse Dhir and Smita!!! Rick’s blog, Pat’s blog,Delish and LLS and Varunavi and ofcourse Domain Maximus…… he never fails to put a smile on my face. These are some of my all time favorites. All these bloggers write so well!!! Most of them have different aspects to life which is very interesting.
It’s been a great journey till now and this is just a milestone.
