Yay!! I am 5…

downloadHi friends… There’s double celebration today. This is my 100th post and on this day, 5 years ago I started blogging. I was waiting to give my 100th post today, so as to make it memorable. The reason I started blogging was my love for Writing. I know, nowadays I don’t write enough! I’m trying to get rid of my laziness and write more. I have succeeded to a certain extent. I have started off with another short story, which I hope to publish in the near future.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts that I never expected to reach any milestone in blogging. I loved writing and I wanted to express myself through words (people who know me well also know that I am a very talkative person). That was the time when I felt that blogging is the medium through which I can express myself. Initially, when I started, I did not even expect people to read it. Slowly and steadily I started noticing that people started reading my posts. The visitors on my blog increased by the day.

It was one February afternoon that I decided to start my blog and by evening I was ready with my blog page and My First Post, that was way back in 2013. I did not realise that time what was in store for me. Few months later I met Mayur (my husband) and something clicked and we were married within a year. What I did not know was, that my husband had read my blog post secretly and was very impressed by it. This made my blog very memorable for me. When I first started off, my blog was called My Space, but I changed it about a year ago. My husband helped me revamp my page to Vaishu’s Corner and designed it for me. Also, when I started off I was using blogspot , but after a year I changed to WordPress. I have been more than happy on WordPress.

Whenever I have been to family gatherings or wedding people have appreciated my blog. Of late, I know that I have been a disappointment to you all. I have not been blogging enough. My husband says that I have to respect my fans and write more. I will not make any promises like I have always made. I will make sure I make time for my blog and keep my fans happy. My family has been a great support in this for me, be it my parents, in- laws, sister or husband; everyone has supported me to do what I love, that is writing. I must in such a case give them happiness by writing more. So, friends, be ready to see me on your timelines more often with my blog posts.

I have, finally, decided that I will no more wait for free time to blog. I will make it my priority because not many people get the support to do what they love. When I have such a loving and supportive family and fans, I know I shouldn’t disappoint any of you.

Thank you so much for encouraging me till now and I hope to get the same encouragement in the future as well.

On the occasion of the fifth birthday of my blog I would like to share with you the post that is very close to my heart. It is the post which I wrote on my grand mom’s birthday way back in July 2015 (which happened to be a year after her death). I will share the link of the same so that you can re-read the post that means a lot to me.

Till then, Cheers!!!

I’m 4 years old!!!

big-cake1256Hey friends! No, no; I’m not four years old, it’s my blog!! After having given my blog a makeover, I’ve been blogging regularly, since. Four years ago, on 28th of February, I decided to give a plunge into this blogging world. Four years later, today, I’m glad I did it. I never thought I’ll come this long in the blogging world. I always loved writing; and I wanted to share my experiences and thoughts. Nothing was better than blogging. That is how I started off.

I did not expect that I would come this far as I did not expect readers waiting for my posts, but to my surprise during the period in between, when I got lazy and stopped blogging regularly I had people asking me why I stopped blogging. In fact, there were people who were waiting for my posts. That I when I decided, come what may, I have to respect my readers, who encourage and motivate me to do what I love.

During the time when I had literally stopped blogging and put up like one post per month or so, my husband kept insisting that I should follow my passion for writing and blog regularly if at all I dream to achieve big in the writing field. With this continuous motivation and encouragement, I somehow managed to shed my laziness and decided for myself, to put a blog post every Thursday. I am a day late this week, I know. Considering the fact that I’ve consistently put up posts every week this month, I’m proud of myself for having comeback with blogging.

Recently, I gave my blog a makeover and my husband brought out the creative side in him, by designing a cover for it. With the hope that I will receive the same kind of encouragement from all of you, I wish to make my blog a huge success in the coming days.

Thank you so much for reading and giving me the feedback. Most importantly, thank you for motivating and encouraging me to continue blogging.

Cheers!!!
