A little about my blogging journey so far and blogging plans for the future!
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.”~ Walt Whitman
There are many inspirational stories on the internet about successful bloggers quitting their soul killing day jobs to blog full time. My blogging story is not such an inspirational one. I didn’t quit my job to blog because I had no job and that’s why I started to blog.
Irrespective of the trifling reason to begin blogging, blogging has definitely changed my thoughts, words, actions and even life.
Starting at the beginning
When I started blogging I had no clue what it takes to create a blog and no idea what one could receive out of a blog. Creating this blog was a ‘spur of the moment’ thing without any prior thinking through. Today I thank God that I didn’t think before I started to blog. Because if I had thought about it, I would never sum up the courage to share my thoughts through the blog and I would have missed out on one of the best adventures of my life.
I started this blog on January this year during a sleepless night. The name of the blog came naturally to me as that is who I was- educated, unemployed and an Indian. I published my first post and a few kind people stopped by and left some encouraging words behind. Those words fueled my motivation to further work on the blog. I spent a few more sleepless nights customizing and designing the blog. Today I feel very fortunate and grateful to have come this far and for the amazing community I am part of through this blog.
What is yet to come
Some of you might be wondering what happened to me, why have I become irregular or what my plans are for this blog. I have been wondering the same for some time. I have also been sick for a short while which gave me ample time to think and overthink. After much thinking and a lot of procrastinating I have decided to take this blog to the next level. I am going to shift to a paid plan. With still a bit of hesitation and a lot of doubts (to overcome) I am going to invest a little bit of money and a lot of time blogging this year. I want to take a chance and listen to my heart this once. I am going to bring a lot of interesting and hopefully helpful content in the coming days. I truly hope to get the same love and support that I have been getting so far.
Blogging is a creative way to express thoughts and opinions, to share those thoughts, to connect with like minded people and to find support in a community that transcends borders. I feel exceptionally lucky to be part of such a wonderful community. I hope I can and I really want to be responsible, sensible and compassionate in creating blog posts that adds value and meaning to life. I can try, I might fail but still I can try.
‘To try’ is my where to next!
