I had always wanted to write. My first story ever was about a duck which ate too many apples and eventually got a stomach ache, but that duck did not regret it; the apples were too good, you see. I was nine. My green writing folder was big for my hands but I took it everywhere. I do not know why, but I always regarded diaries and journals as log books of crushes and spites. One, I had none, the other, I did not want to make real by writing it down. Evidently, I lived in an imaginary world of my own.
My blog, Light Writes, finally came into existence after a series of procrastination and hesitation snags. I needed a medium to practice my timeliness, and to display my writing into the void , to be constructively commented on and critiqued by my audience.
The Blogger community is formally the most helpful and engaging place to be! I have learnt not to be hesitate to ask questions- so that I can level up to from noob to semi-noob. I know now to take blogging seriously, but not to stress about it. I love how there is so much to learn, by engaging in this community. The Blogging University is a great start to beginners. Keep trying out new themes, titles and taglines until you find the one that fits you like a second skin. Be consistent in updating and writing. I am still trying my hardest to achieve that. It’s not easy, but we’ll all get there.
I thank Sailaja ma’am for giving me this award. She has been a strong motivator ever since school days, and her confidence in me, I remember, was an integral part of the fifteenth year of my existence. Her blog is a stream of lovely internal dialogues, which are so quintessential to her, her personality and delicious writing strikes a chord with me, immediately. She still walks in beauty, and now writes beautifully on her blog too. (That was a reference to our little coded poem for Teachers Day, ma’am.) In all honesty, I could not stop grinning the day she posted about The Blogger Recognition Award and frequently got distracted from the Storage Area Networks internals I had. My gratitude, ma’am.
