I think, therefore I write

The journey to the hundredth

Here is the century of little pieces that I have written as posts, starting from my college final year days till now. A little of this and a little of that. Starting out as an amateur girl who writes about the silly incidents that she faced at her internship to the girl who has discovered some depths of reading and writing and is able to relate to it better than before.

This blog has been an incredible friend, teacher in my life so far. The best thing that this blog has taught me is to do things because I like to do and not because someone else likes to. I know I never write much of a post on any current affairs or a similar genre. My posts always were personal, a little expression of my feelings, musings etc and some abstract thoughts penned down that helped me see certain things clearer. It was different that my posts were not targeted for an audience but I just told myself that I will write what I want to even if it is crap. Eventually blogging fed my desire to become a better writer and I am thankful for that.

It taught me that becoming a better writer is what matters and getting published is just an extra bonus because that’s how my heart looks at it. I have moved around my blog so much before finally settling here and have been on breaks that never seemed to end. But I have always come back to this space. This is my wonder-world where I always come back. I thank all the readers who have supported me unflinchingly, pouring in their thoughts that have made many of my best days πŸ™‚ This blog has been a better friend than I initially thought it would be. Supporting my pace and enablingΒ  me for more. It has been a kindle to nurture my passion for the language.

This journey to the hundredth post has been fun even if it was slow. And with this hundredth, I have promised myself not to force myself to write just because it has been a while since I posted anything. I will write because I feel like doing so. I have done this in the past too, but I admit, there has been times when I blogged because I wanted to bridge the gap. And I am going to stop doing that. That just doesn’t feel right. Hope my fellow bloggers will agree as I know for a fact that they too feel that writing should not be imposed.

Lastly, I have finally been welcomed into the warm extended arms of the Bangalore city. Settling down is taking its toll but it comes with the package. The happiness has not ebbed out fully and I am enjoying this 2nd chance at a little something called life πŸ™‚ With that last note and a thank you for your support, I leave you now. I will come back to start the journey to the 2nd century and so will you, if you liked my 1st century πŸ˜‰

Until later πŸ™‚
