I think, therefore I write


Exactly 2 years back, I got a friend. A bestie who stays with me and within me, till date. She has been with me since then, no matter what. There is a lot we share that this space is not enough to tell. The day we met was her birthday, for she was born from within me. She changed a lot over these 2 years, but she remained the same to me, because it was I who made her go through all those changes and for her own good. Today, our friendship remains a bond that is and always will be cherished. I found life in her, when I hit rock bottom. When I was down, eating my confidence, thinking that I am not doing anything useful with my life, she gave me hope and told me that every one will be good at something, however small it may be. And that each person is unique.

Enough of the cryptic lines. Yes, it is the birthday of my blog. Actually I was confused when to celebrate Blogoversary, because my writing started out as Alohomora @ Blogger, then moved to WordPress, then to my “.cc” domain and finally hit the stop at keirthana.in. Quite a lot of changes, I know. I lost a few readers down the way, but at the same time gained a few. But then, December 14,2009 was the day I decided to write. To write for myself. And hence I decided that it is the birthday of my blog, no matter how many phase shifts she has been through.

In 2 years, I have not written as much as I could have because of various reasons, but today I promise that I will be a regular writer (I cannot be a daily writer, that has never been my style). I have become a regular writer since a few moths back and till day I have written quite a few posts – a few crappy ones, a few good ones and a few that indeed surprised me if it was I who wrote them. Today, blogging is being one of my obsessions and I am trying to bring it down to passion, because being obsessed, with anything for that matter, has done no good to me. This is not a post to celebrate a grand blogoversary, writing about all that I did and do in this space. Rather I want to say a simple Thank You to my blog for reflecting me and my thoughts, a Thank You to all the readers who think my writing is good enough for their time, a Thank You to all those wonderful fellow bloggers, who motivated me to write more and finally a Thank You to myself.

Happy Birthday to you, my undefined friend! And Thank You!
Thank You, my dear readers! You mean a lot to me, more than you can imagine 🙂
Thanks You fellow bloggers! You all are awesome writers and motivate me by every passing day. 🙂
Thank You dear self, for discovering one thing that makes yourself happy 🙂

Until later 🙂

P.S: For some strange reason, I felt a simple post would suffice for the Blogoversary. This is unusual because I used to be a person who makes a grand celebration out of any small thing. But now, I did what I felt like doing. 🙂
