Started with a zest to return to this blog and write regularly if not daily. But something has changed, something is not the same – blogging is not the same that it was in those years. Like about 7 years ago!
I love writing even today – it gives me freedom to express and there’s no limit on words or time, I can write however long post I want and no one shall ask me to shut up!
Also, the best part of blogging – for me – is I’m better at writing my thoughts as compared to speaking them up. I feel while writing I’m more organized and the flow of thoughts is in order.
So when the love for writing is intact and the advantages are clear, then what happened to blogging? Earlier, it was so much fun, there was a undying excitement to check wordpress, to read blogs and to write your own. There was communication, however silly or wise, bloggers did engage. I miss that gang, I miss that madness. Everyone had a life then, everyone has a life now – so what really changed? What made us so busy to not look at the blogging world, at all?
I’ve made some really good friends here. Though blogging has (very near to) vanished from my life, I’m happy the friends stayed. Blogging also changed me as a person, how I thought, how I looked at things, how I knew things – it did change me and for good.
I think I’ve lost the track to schedule blogging in my daily routine. Of course there’s no compulsion to blog, no one’s holding me at a gun point! But how funny is that – I want to blog and I can’t seem to find a way to include it in my routine.
Let’s see if I’m able to take baby steps and get it back in my life!
