There are some things in our life which are omnipresent. They are forever in our thoughts, even when we don’t know. My blog is one such thing for me. I haven’t written seriously since a long time but there hasn’t been a day or an occasion when I didn’t feel like ‘blogging it out’. Why I didn’t do that, is a different story.
Many of my blog friends wouldn’t know (or may be they did, through the many widgets that show the site visitors impeccably) but I’ve been lurking around a bit, reading but not commenting on their blogs. With no intention of offending anyone, there was a simple reason for it. Blogging was becoming a way of venting out, justifying, explaining and defending, and at times just glorifying our lives for our own benefit (even I did that sometimes).
That’s not why I began writing or reading blogs. We had views and ideas, but there wasn’t the need to have people agreeing with it. The number of readers a post got didn’t motivate a ‘sequel’ to it. Nothing was written just for the sake of garnering appreciation or creating a controversy. The greed was to write what we enjoy. Nothing else.
And hence, I’ve decided to make a new beginning. One thing that I’m going to remind myself everyday is that my blog may be a part of my existence but it isn’t my identity and I cannot open the book of my life here for people to derive conclusions about me. At the same time I don’t want to create an impression of a person that I’m not.
My personal life had taken precedence here and I’m going to change that. No more elaborate A Jr stuff (a post on writing about our kids is going to come up sometime soon) and definitely no more bursting of mother love. 😛 😀
Hope my readers will continue coming back to my blog for the sheer joy of reading and will not go disappointed. 🙂
