would I follow my own blog?

Honestly I have no idea…

Let me contemplate for a minute or two…..

I have a tendency to follow blogs that are focused on certain themes (like gratitude, cats, poetry, recipes, bread-baking, or minimalism). If I was to look for such a blog that is focused on one or two topics I think I would be more inclined not to follow my blog.

This is because I have no focus on particular themes. Generally speaking I write about anything  – any day I may come up with a post on something different. I think sometimes it makes it hard to follow or sometimes perhaps interesting/stimulating – after all variety and spontaneity may be interesting time to time, at least for me.

Or, is it?

So, I must ask my fellow bloggers and followers:

Why do you guys follow me really?

And, why would you or would not follow your own blog if you were someone else?

a quick thank you note

Today I have reached 700 followers..

Wow! 🙂

Thank you each one of you and I hope you will continue to enjoy my future posts. As you know I write on a variety of topics – from frugality to decluttering; from life to work; from philosophy to human pain and love; from poems to short story attempts, and many others. Nothing particular indeed ! 🙂

I sure enjoy writing honest and modest posts and interacting with you. I am amazed how supportive, wise, and humorous some of us can be. I feel lucky.

Stay safe and happy. Best.

1,000th post! :)

word

Who knew that I could be so talkative? 🙂

Looks like yesterday I have posted my 1000th post.. It is a significant number and I am seriously surprised by this.

It has been more than 1.5 years of blogging here and there could not have been a better chance for me to express myself and interact with wonderful people.

Grateful for this opportunity and for all the bloggers I meet here. Many thanks for following me.

ending healthy – life style journal

I have not posted my healthy – life style journal yesterday.

The fact that I am tired of not doing as good as I wish to do. Plus, in the last 3 months while I have eaten better, I did not lose much of a weight. So noting what I have eaten or how much walking I have done per day does not satisfy me anymore.

I am ending it for now. I may start later sometime should I see a benefit in it.

Thank you all of those who commented and supported me through this journey. You guys helped me keep going 🙂

Amazingly, I feel free, too.

Interesting….

Free from drafting it everyday, picking up multiple tags and categories, cluttering my blog with these daily posts…

I have more interesting stuff to write about.

Now, I will go enjoy my newly found freedom.

random thoughts

I believe it is around a year that I have started my blog here – I just surprised myself by remembering this.. A year.. Wow…

A year ago I was writing my first posts, not knowing what exactly this blog would be about. Not knowing what to expect to find. What to write. How or whether to respond to comments or how or whether to write comments on others’ posts.

A lot changed since then; I have evolved, so have my blog. It is pretty neat indeed.

Posts and bloggers I like to read have changed since then; mostly expanded. Sometimes I got to learn about new concepts, sometimes I just remembered, sometimes I knew about the topic but read the posts anyways – just to see the other point of views.

Sometimes I followed blogs first for some reason and then continued to read their posts about a variety of topics. Sometimes, I read a post first, something clicked, and then I followed the blogger. The reasons for choosing the blogs I follow (or unfollow) amuses me somehow.

One new concept I learnt about by reading posts here was “minimalism”. What an interesting concept that I can totally relate to. Boy, am I glad I learnt about it. I cannot think about another concept that was uniquely a blogging experience.

Other concepts I read in posts I knew before, but they have a great role in “reminding” me. Decluttering is one example. Reading the posts about it has been a very inspiring experience; I have done one of my biggest decluttering activity in years thanks to this experience. I must credit getting warm to the idea of thrifting and donating all bunch of stuff after I declutter to the thrifty stores to the posts I read here about decluttering.

Saving, budgeting, frugality, and conscious spending have been ongoing topics for me in the last 5-6 months. Similar to other topics, reading the posts has been incredibly inspiring and useful. All the tips and great points made about them. Knowing that I have not been the only one. Seeing that the majority of the tips work in my life. Keeping being inspired to do better in my budgeting and saving. These are still the most important topics that I keep reading about, almost every day.

One may argue that after a while, new posts may not be as useful as the ones I have read at the beginning (where the learning curve was steeper). That is partially true – I can say that I now know the majority of the tips/experiences written about in the posts. However they are still useful – to remind myself about this important goal of mine. That is why I read the posts on these topics very frequently and with delight.

There are a number of other interesting tags that I follow, some of which include renovation, housekeeping, cancer, and DIY.

Knowing how dynamic is my interests and what a variety of topics the blogs I follow write about, I am curious and excited about the future tags I will follow, future topics I will learn about.

keep up the great work everyone 🙂

cheers

appreciation to fellow bloggers :)

I would like to thank all the fellow bloggers who are following me; it is currently more than 450 🙂 I never thought I would get that many people who would be interested in hearing what I have to say. From the bottom of my heart, thanks for being interested in my blog!

The same for those who take time to comment on my posts and reply to my comments. Each one of you have somehow enriched my thoughts with your support and kind and encouraging words that also hinted your wonderful characters – thanks a lot 🙂

A final word to those blogs that I follow: I want you to know I read your posts as my time permits and I always like a post only after I read it. I am constantly learning and expanding my vision, thanks to your experiences and writing. Thank you for being here and sharing your world.

cheers everyone 🙂

May your lives be full of beauties, hope, support, and love :)
May your lives be full of beauty, hope, support, and love, however bumpy and dry it may look 🙂 *I like this picture as the little boat looks so off, so away from where it is supposed to be, yet is so full of life…. 🙂
