Wow, I never realized that I actually registered 5 years ago. I haven’t been posting that long though. I think I started out for a bit but then like all things, I just lost enthusiasm. I guess I found my blogging rhythm last year. As I look back on my posts now, I realise that my blog posts have changed significantly. I used to read a lot of blogs, mainly for information. And I thought that we should blog only if you have something important to say or something informative to share. Over the past two years, I’ve realized that this doesn’t always have to be true. Everything someone can say can be important. A person sharing their feelings or their frustrations, can be just as important. You don’t always have to like what people have to say, and therein lies the beauty of blogging. If you don’t like it, just click the close button on the window.
We all blog for different reasons and to each of us, our reasons are personal and justified. I realized that what I had started doing was not what I wanted to do. I wanted to write… Write about anything and everything. I didn’t want to have to think too much, or structure things. I do enough of that at work. So, after a while blogging became more of a chore than a pleasure. And that’s just so wrong. If the one place where I could say anything, was no longer a happy place, then why do it at all.
So five years on….I have changed, my blog has changed, but I’m much happier about both.
