Apologies & Gratitude

Apologies & Gratitude

Hi everyone!

Today I am writing to apologize to all of you. I have not been reading your blogs lately. In fact I have not been reading at all. There is a lot going on at my end and that is keeping me away from my love of reading and writing.

I have not been writing anything new except for the daily prompts and have only been posting my previously published posts. There seem to be dullness in the air around and nothing seems to be moving. All I am doing now a days on WP is scheduling a few of my older posts and replying back to your beautiful comments. There had been a death in the extended family and that too has its effect showing. Not feeling too well in terms of health and need to get a few things checked at the medical center.

Despite all the above, I am pushing myself to keep going. And believe me, YOU have helped me so much with that. I am sure you know that I am not reading your blogs at all now a days, still you all are reading all the previous posts that I schedule to be published. All you beautiful souls are liking and commenting to praise my posts and encouraging me to write more. Your love is pure as no one has come back telling me that I am not reading their posts. I have always said and felt during my blogging journey that support is the key that opens the doors to our success and connection with each other. With tears in my eyes, I want to accept that I have not been too much of a support to you guys lately. I have failed for a while and YOU are still supporting me. I feel that you all understand me so well now. I am sure this phase in my life will go and I will get back on track soon. I will be back in action, reading and enjoying your beautiful posts and giving my thoughts on the same.

Thank you all. I wish there were few more beautiful words in my dictionary to tell you how much your support and love means to me and how you have helped me always.

Strong Bloggers & what Success means to them

Strong Bloggers & what Success means to them

It’s been 4 months and 20 days into the blogging world. In this time, I have seen and learnt many things about people and their blogging way. I have tried to understand other people’s perspectives, I have learnt many new things about different places and cultures, have seen stunning photography and read beautiful poems and articles.

During this amazing journey, I have seen the following kind of bloggers –

  1. Who are already considered successful.
  2. Who have reached a stage where they can relax a little for they know, they are doing reasonable and will reach the stage where they call themselves successful.
  3. The ones who are still struggling to understand their way to the success.

Now, when I think deep, I ask myself that it is even important to be a successful blogger? And what exactly would success mean here in the world of blogging?

Then I tried to answer the question myself. Here, there is nothing like being successful or not successful. All that matters here is to be a Strong Blogger. The one who keeps writing and fighting, the one who offers help to others when they need it, the one who can inspire others with his/her posts, the one who is daring to write the truth and is bold enough to face criticism, the one who is influential the positive way, the one who is writing for a cause, the one who is trying to create awareness, the one who is taking out time to appreciate others and encourage them.

This deep insight encouraged me to create the Blogger’s Pool which extends appreciation and support that all of us need. A place where we can meet other beautiful bloggers and appreciate their work.

Today, I want to take pride in saying that I want to be a  STRONG BLOGGER. I want to spread happiness around. I want to find out a way to connect people to each other. I just want to support everyone around with my words. My Strength is my Success!

Do you also feel that it’s the best way to blog! Please leave your comments to express your views.

mySestina theory behind following you

mySestina theory behind following you

Dear fantastic fellow bloggers

There is a theory behind me following you

Not just for the sake of you following me, that I follow you

I follow you, for I love to read your mind

I love your creativity, the art in your soul

I relish your ideas, that can change the world

I am amazed at your pictures, where you capture time

I take advantage from your lessons of life

I laugh merrily at your funny posts

You bring me the world on my computer screen

You help me come out of my testing times

How I feel so connected to you

How we share a fantastic relationship

And that’s my theory of following you

I am not simply following you, for you are following me

I follow you to see the world through a million eyes

Trying to find Love in Blogging (in all of YOU)

Sometimes, we just get tired of the situations, no matter how hard we try, things just don’t seem to work. I am writing this post with tears in my eyes, not able to understand the fate and the destiny. Failing to find love in life, right from the beginning, right from the childhood, love deprived teenage, and the story continued..

Now, trying to find love in blogging. With all your beautiful comments, words of inspiration, things you say that bring a smile to my face even when I am in my worst of the moods. Your love inspires me to keep going. All your encouraging words tell me to fight and never give up. I feel as if you all are just by my side, holding my hand, telling me softly – “It will work out dear, please don’t up.”

Nurture your Blog – the smart way

Nurture your Blog – the smart way

We all want to see our blogs growing. More readers, more followers, more likes and a lot of traffic. Most of us love blogging, that’s why we are here. We start to enjoy the blogging world and in a way our blog becomes really precious to us, as if it is our baby. But, a baby needs to be nurtured properly to grow and to be good at the things he or she needs to learn.

Now, how do we nurture our baby blog to make it a successful big blog?

The answer is very simple.. by following good and smart practices. Let me point out a few here with respect to making use of the Community Pool and Daily Prompt Post by WordPress 

  1. Make use of the Community Pool’s post every Monday.
  2. Leave your link in the comments section and a brief description of your site.
  3. Publish your best post right after leaving a comment on Community Pool’s post to let people take interest in your blog and are encouraged to follow you.
  4. Go through the comments of other bloggers there and invite them to your blog.
  5. Follow their sites as per your interest, try to read their posts and leave comments to show your dedication.
  6. Try to make use of the Daily Prompt post everyday. Write a post with respect to the prompt and link it to the Daily Prompt site. This could attract a lot of readers to your site.
  7. Try to keep the title to your post very interesting to gain immediate attention.
  8. Being positive is the key. Stay connected and support others in order to receive their support.

Hope this helps! I wish you all a lot of contentment with respect to your blogging experience.

Cheers!

The Need for Blogging

The Need for Blogging

Understanding the need for blogging is not very difficult once you start doing it. We tend to realize the value of blogging in our lives, once we create a blog of our own and start to publish our work. In a matter of a few days or weeks, a blogger realizes what was he/she missing when they were not blogging.

In a way, we are able to find a fantastic way to let the world be aware of our ideas. The need to be heard and to make a difference in our own lives and to influence others gets satisfied here. When people appreciate our ideas, we feel energized. It gives us mental satisfaction. Our own brain drives us towards achieving that satisfaction.

The fact is that once we start blogging, it is very difficult to stay away or missing even for a few days from our blogs. The need to read other’s posts, the need to write more and publish, makes us miss blogging when we are not doing it. It is always great to come back to the blogging world if we have to take a break from it for any reason.

I just took a day off and guess what! there are so many posts that I missed on. Makes me feel not too good, but I am trying to catch up. Please bear with me my dear fellow bloggers. I am now back and will be back in action from right now itself.

Guess, the need for blogging is just too deep inside me. Do you feel so too?

Chemistry of We Bloggers

Chemistry of We Bloggers

Yeylow Bloggers!!

Guess what I am here with today! A sequel to the  Journey of We Bloggers &  Motto of We Bloggers.

Today, let’s conclude with the Chemistry of We Bloggers!

As the name suggests, this post is completely dedicated to all the fellow bloggers around.

The journey of writing a post, publishing it and achieving attention are very important aspects of our blogging lives. Now, comes the best and the most important part. It is building chemistry amongst fellow bloggers. All of us have followers and friends and it’s amazing how we share a relationship with them.

This is no ordinary thing. It is rather an achievement to be able to build a chemistry with people we have never seen, never met, people who are not known to us, we don’t even know each other’s names mostly, yet how we connect with each other making no mistakes.

We have the power to make each other smile, bring happiness to each other with our support. Isn’t it wonderful? To me, it most certainly is! How we click with each other, how we just understand each other’s writings and photographs, how it soothes us and brings us peace. I have made many relationships here and they must be smiling while reading this, because they understand that I am referring to them. The same way you could relate to your group of followers and bloggers.

We are simply nothing without each other. It is our unity, our chemistry that makes us special. A single fish can never survive in an ocean. It has to build a family. Stay with other fish, support them and be a part of the group.

So guys, hats off to our Chemistry. I am so proud of all my fellow bloggers and I truly appreciate their effort and time to make all of us survive and thrive for the best.

In the name of our combined efforts – Cheers to the Chemistry of We Bloggers!

Yippeyyyyy!!!

Journey of we Bloggers

Journey of we Bloggers

Yeyllow! What’s up!

I decide to write a Prequel to Motto of We BloggersThe journey for we bloggers with each post that we write.

First thing, you know what? An idea to grab my attention. I know what I am going to write about today. Oh man, I guess this is going to be simply amazing.

Does this go through your mind as well? Well, with me it does. And now presenting the next step, which is – Writing. Now! that comes with a lot of imagination. Sometimes, we take a long time to write a post and sometimes less. Depends really on our mood and the availability of time. Sometimes, we just write what we are feeling in that particular moment and that comes out really well mostly! Maybe because, those are the true emotions of the moment.

Already!! Let’s move ahead. The writing part is done. Now what? Well, give it an appearance. Open Mr. Google and look for a perfect picture for your post. This one is OK, I guess, O no wait! I guess this is better or will this be more interesting?!.. and till the time we find the best picture to match with our post, we keep troubling  Google Uncle.

Alright, now i have found the picture as well. What do i do now? Hmmm, let me fill in the categories and a few tags for the post. This was easy.. I am done with that too… now do I hit the publish tab?

O no wait! let me proof read the post. Let me check for any changes or any sort of grammatical errors, spell checks. Is the language looking right? Guess, all is in place. Now, can i publish it? Should I? Hmm, guess, I will go and hit the publish tab.

There, I hit the PUBLISH tab…

The after story has already been presented to you.. check out Motto of We Bloggers if you haven’t yet!!

This is an every time journey for all we bloggers with each post that we write. But the best part is that we never get tired of it. In fact, we love it, we live every moment of it.

Hope you all can relate to the experience. Please drop your suggestions for any additions to make this experience even more interesting.

Cheers to Blogging!! Cheers to Bloggers!!
