I remember, it was a year ago, that I was at my table, pulling my hair out in frustration, shedding copious tears over all that was going wrong for the tech-challenged me. Moving my old blog to WordPress without a glitch and creating a new blog I had envisioned…uff! Just remembering those times makes me want to pinch myself. Is it a year already? Did I successfully create a blog on WordPress on my own? Without ruining my four years of hard work?
Ah! And, what a year it has been! A year of realising my blogging dream–of having a blog that belonged to a niche, of assuring myself that I was on the right track, and of writing with a renewed zest, with the only aim being to enjoy the journey. I admit, I was a bit late in realising that writing for myself and for the love of it would help, much more than writing with the aim of “succeeding” as a blogger. But, as they say, better late than never!
Writing every post, creating images, sharing my posts…this is what I love. This is what I truly enjoy. And, the fruit of this labour – the comments I receive, the joy I derive from connecting with other bloggers and watching my writing getting better by the day, finding courage to share my Life, sharing facts about Life and its varied hues. The list is endless!
A few days ago, I requested some of my dear blogger friends and cousins to write a short review of my blog, or what they thought about my blog. The outpouring of love that I received left me elated, blessed! Learning what others think about my writing, about how I present facts of Life and how my words resonate with others, left me stunned, and made me feel honoured. For I know these wonderful people have expressed the truth and not just praised me to the skies!
And, for their warm words, I will be ever so grateful to each of them. And, to all of you, too, dear readers! Today, on the first anniversary of Metanoia, all I ask of you is to keep encouraging me, motivating me with your words, so that I keep pushing myself towards realising a tiny dream I dreamt for myself. Of taking Metanoia to the position I have envisaged. And, of being a better writer than I am today.
Thank you, everyone, for visiting Metanoia and showering us with such love and warmth! Your emotions that you share with me through your comments are priceless!
Sharing here, the love my dear ones showered on Metanoia…
