Beginning of a new journey...


Today..I'm all set to enter the big blog world..actually on second thoughts not all that set..honestly a little scared,a little skeptical,and a lot in self doubt..because now I will be shaping my thoughts into words..and those words won't be on the pages of my diary but here..where if I'm lucky people will come and read what I have to say..for all you mind blowing expert bloggers and writers it may not be a big deal at all...but for me it really is...I've spent 21 years of my life...without sharing my inside with anybody...initially nobody cared enough to listen and by the time someone actually did..I had lost the ability to open up..not that I'm complaining..I have beautiful souls around me for which I'm extremely grateful to God..Its just that I don't think what I feel or say is important and honestly I do have a lot of trash filled up inside...which I'm trying to clear up..hope it happens soon...for now I'm making an effort to pour my heart and mind into words..to pen down what I feel..I don't possess..the talent of being able to use dramatic phrases or elaborate language..you see the writing skills are in the process of development..so my expression might be very simple..I have been writing earlier...but except a few poems nothing exactly from beginning to the end..just open lines here and there..in my diary..and blogging was something I couldn't have even dreamt of in my wildest imagination..and today if I have a blog and the courage to write here, its only because of one of my best friend whom I met online on orkut some time ago..to be precise 21st September 2007..He is the sole reason I'm here today...he was the one who thought I could write...he inspired me...gave me the courage to believe in myself..to begin a blog..in fact I din't even know how to make one...he took out the time to make one for me..and gave me the instructions to go about it while we were chatting...and I won't be exaggerating it one bit if I say that I must have asked him hundreds of lame questions..but he was very kind enough to answer them all patiently...Ufff...just look at me...I'm going on and on about him but forgot to disclose his identity only..for me he is stibumama and for the members of the blog world..The Solitary Writer..and now that I have revealed the name I don't think I need to introduce him any further... Best friend...i owe a lot to you...thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo muchhhhhhhhh for encouraging me,inspiring me..giving me the confidence to write,for believing in me...and for all your help,time,patience,support and most importantly for being the wonderful friend that you are...I just don't have words to express my gratitude..Thank you sooooo muchh...I will try my level best to not let you down...and if I can...I wish I make u proud someday...Thanks a ton!This could have just not been possible without you!I'm really blessed to have a friend like you![STATUTORY WARNING:I will be eating a lot of your head in the upcoming days...be prepared..coz you know I'm dumb..] There is another person I need to thank and that is"miss pink orchid"..another awesome blogger...again needs no introduction..Thank you sooooooooo much dear..You haven't even read my works still you joined in..its really encouraging and means a lot to me...I hope I don't disappoint u...thank u soooo much!! I extend a very warm welcome to all those readers who take out their precious time to visit my blog...thank you soooooooooo much in advance I hope my words can bind you if not then at least your feedback will enable me to improve...looking forward to a nice learning and sharing experience. Thank you, God bless.

  5. Welcome Little Girl,

    Well, the world of blogging is small... there was a time, when I started, I used to think that there is no one else in here - then, when I joined The Writers Lounge (Where I'm sure you will be joining soon) I found many of the people around me writing blogs - that means, I started to know people whom I felt close to... and now again, I feel I am almost alone in this world.

    This was not to discourage you in anyway... The World of Blogging is worth a visit... Keep writing... Keep blogging...

    When I started blogging, the idea was completely different... now a days, I feel the idea of blogging has changed and hence, I changed too... I wish you all the success here and I am sure you will get many friends to interact and discuss life with... Have a good time...

    Best of Luck :)

    PS: Now that you have started it, dont leave it. I am sure this will be the first Debutant Blog Post with so many comments in it. Thats a nice start - you just need to carry on!

  11. there are two audiences you will garner for your blog: your own friends who know you well and will read your blog cuz ur are their frnd. and unknown peopl who dont know you but still give your blog a try.

    if you want your blog to be read by a lot of people, remember to keep it fresh. you may write personal stuff, but make sure u write it in a way people will wanna read it. not in a way that will make ppl feel they are not invited to read it and is private.

    best of luck
