13th May, 2004 was when I posted my first entry. It has been an amazing journey, where I met a lot of blogger buddies and shared. I must mention one blogger, who really inspired me. She is Poonam. I read all her posts in a week's time and started blogging. I was heartbroken when she deleted all her posts one day and moved blogs and URLs, and stopped blogging. Sometimes, I do get mails from people who've said that they read my blog and started blogging. If the feeling was half of what I felt when I read Poonam's blog (though I don't know how you measure it:-) ), I am really glad that I could inspire.
It's been an amazing 6 yrs for me of self discovery. I've come across bloggers, who say that the template is like clothes and should be changed as often as possible. It hasn't happened in mine. For me, I can say something like this: "I walk these paths, I learn these lessons, I crossed those miles, the same old me, the same old shoes, just longer hair. I still search for you and I still search for myself."
I continue to learn, to seek, and search. In the 6 years, I have realised I can be detached from blogging yet love it.
Congratulations to a dear blogger cynic, who has become a mother. The kiddo might just call her Didi, but the news touched me as I have been reading her for 6 years now, in her different avataars.
And all these years, I have never written this, I am madly in love. :-)
