After months and months of a LOT of arguments within myself, I have FINALLYย  taken the first step towards writing a blog (I cannot tell you how many times I got so close) !!! I think I deserve a big applause (clap! clap! clap!). I remember how I used to skeptically stare at my laptop screen, wondering, whether even a single person (apart from me, of course!) would read my blog.ย  A little voice in my head (mind, heart, intestines, whatever!) told me that it was alright, as long as I took the first step and kept going. I guess that’s the part of me with a halo on top- ๐Ÿ˜‡ (“Well, it will be, if people do read what you write”, says the evil part – ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ). The truth is,ย  at some level, I am afraid if what I do would ever make a mark. Aren’t we all?

I remember doing things just for fun, when I was a little kid, absolutely not bothered by anyone else’s opinion. I wonder where the little child is now. I simply cannot find that child. When do other people’s judgments start becoming dominant? To think it could become more important than our own creative pleasure, is downright scary. I have a new mission now! Find the little child and let her have all the fun she has missed out, all these years (“Let’s see if that really happens,ย  Muahhahahaha“- ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ).

Thanks again, beautiful people, for reading my first post (tears of joy).

Yuhu!!

  1. That first step is always the biggest. And the wait for the first like or follow, or even comment, is the longest. It’s great you took the metaphorical plunge ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That was so well written. It’s so true, how we all felt when we first took the step into “blogging” wondering why or who would read our thoughts. I had no idea blogging existed and If you have the inclination to go back to my original beginnings of bloggings I wrote something amusing about my first experience. Yours was completely delightful. Really enjoyed.

  3. Hi there! Yes – I will read your blog ๐Ÿ™‚ Following now. Welcome to blogging and I hope that you truly have the best of times with it. It definitely can be scary and intimidating sometimes (the whole thought about what people will think, etc.) but whatever. You are here and you have started. Keep it up!
