I have always loved writing, from my childhood! Be it poems, slogans, short stories and more. The thrill of presenting the written piece to my parents, teachers and friends was unbeatable. The happiness whenever I received an appreciation was unmatched. Technology was not that strong back then and slowly my passion faded. Reading was another interest and very enjoyable. I could spend hours reading books.
I continued writing bits and pieces, whenever I got the chance. But there was always this regret of not being able to pursue my passion. I began contributing to magazines and E-zines. Many of my writings got published, but even then I felt empty. My Facebook account was filled with poetry and other write ups of mine. Six months back, a good soul suggested, that I start blogging! Now, I had no clue about this. He taught me everything and helped me open an account on WordPress and here I am today, celebrating the sixth month anniversary of my blog “Musings On Life” !
Initially, I had my apprehensions as a new blogger, as to how people would react to my writings? Would they like it, find it amusing and what not. But I kept pouring out my thoughts and the response has been quite good so far. I did receive some encouraging words of appreciation and this has kept me going. On this occasion, I would like to thank my esteemed readers for all their support and encouragement, all through these six months. I look forward to continued support from you all. If there is anything specific that you would like me to write about, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to do it.
Any suggestions about improving my blog are always welcome. I would like to end this post with a few lines …
Writing is a precious gift
Granted to a privileged few
Reading is an invaluable habit
Exposing an entire world, new
To gain a place in a heart
Makes writing an indispensable art
