Alphabet J – Journey into blogging!

A to Z Challenge

J

Day 12 – ** Theme Kaleidoscope of thoughts**

ic:clipartfox.com

Blogging was alien to me till a few years back. Some friends once mentioned about blogs. Intrigued and fascinated by what I had learned, I came home and googled out “blog” and it opened up an expanse of literary artistry before me. I was amazed at what I had discovered. An ocean of bloggers from across the globe showcasing their written work on topics so varied and diverse.

It was then I decided that one day, I too shall start blogging. Immediately made a note in my “Bucket List “of things to do in my diary.  Many other things in life kept me busy for quite some time, and the list remained safe and secure in my diary, completely slipping out of my mind.

Last year when I was cleaning my closet, I found my diary and was browsing it.

“Starting my own blog” started at me. That’s when I decided to take the plunge. The journey so far has been good and I am enjoying every moment. It’s been such a learning experience. Admiration, respect and amazement is what I feel for all your ideas, talent and creative skills.  It is an absolute honour for me to be a tiny part of the blogosphere with all of you. A decision I am happy I took.

Words find their way out

from the thoughts that sprout

from my finite mind

leading them to infinite people.

Easy and lucid they are

to comprehend,

but are no match to

the work of the eminent laureates

I find many, among you.

Coming straight from the heart

my words through my blog just want to

fill your day with sunshine and warmth!

Happy Blogging ❤ !

Would love to know, how did you start your blogging journey?

    You are one of the first bloggers I followed when I joined WP last year, R 😀
    I started blogging out of curiosity 😉 Though my writing did not get much attention, photography did. One year later, here I am, with two blogs 😀 None of the close ones know that I blog, that’s my best kept secret…

      Thanks R! Cheers to our year long association. Your photographs are simply amazing. My daughter is very much interested in photography and art. So I keep showing her your pictures and paintings. But I am amazed how you have still kept blogging a secret from your close ones …………

        Awww that’s really sweet of you Radhika, to show my photos and paintings. You made my day by saying that 🙂 🙂
        Since none of my friends or family members are into blogging, I don’t think telling them about my blog would make much of a difference 😀 and sometimes, keeping secrets are fun 😉

    Blogging is amazing! Interacting with the community is sometimes more fun than writing. I started my first blog just out of curiosity. I wasn’t very confident that I’ll be able to keep writing. But somehow I kept going on but my reader base consisted solely of friends and family! After a while, I quit writing and abandoned that blog. There’s only so much until you can no longer pester your loved ones to read your work! 😂😂😂😂 I didn’t interact much with the community back then. But the writing bug cannot be ignored for so long, so after a while I started an anonymous blog on another platform. But it wasn’t any fun and I realized how much I missed WP! That was how My Random Ramblings​ was born. This is my third blog and like they say, the third time has been the charm indeed! Once I started interacting with the community, I realized how much I was missing out on! I have so much support and inspiration. It’s a wonderful feeling indeed. I have absolutely no plans to abandon this blog. That’s the power of the blogging community. I’ve got so many blogger friends. Blogging has indeed changed my life for the better! Whoops, sorry for the long comment. And I loved this post. Beautiful poem. Am so glad that you decided to start blogging then. Happy blogging to you too, dear! 😊

      Shweta, I enjoyed reading your journey to blogging. For me, except a couple of family members, all other followers are friends I made on WP. I think WP is an amazing platform and creates a cohesive bond among the bloggers. It’s wonderful that you got lucky third time. Now you have got a few loyal followers which I am sure will keep increasing. So stay put and let us enjoy your writings 😊💖

    Great Post Radhika! Last year I entered officially into this blogging world. I wanted to keep track of a few things which I wanted to catch up when I need like recipes and other stuffs. So I had a small google blog. Things were scattered and I really couldn’t organize there. That’s how I got to know this and I am glad, I got here. It’s not just about some public content. I read people, emotions, thoughts, attitude and lots of good stuff. I learned a lot and I made good friends to share and experience my interests.

    Happy Blogging 🙂

    You are one of my inspirational blogger friend in my list. I was about to leave my career in hotel Industry because of the unsocial hours which was an absolute struggle with family life especially with little kids. Where one of my old school friend had compelled me in blogging which was a new environment for me. But really enjoying now with new challenges.
