Looking back @ 365 days- 52 weeks- 12 months- 1 year that went by
It’s been a while since i wrote something in here or let me put it this way; it’s been a while since my think tank cooked up anything. Without noticing, a year has passed since i started blogging. I have come a full circle from zero back to zero. The place looks deserted as it was a year ago and i am once again thinking of reinventing myself - Venky 3.0
It was a certain February I started off writing about cricket. I found no takers for it. What is the use if you write something people dont want? People might argue that one should write for his own pleasure. Then buddy blogging is not is not your platform you write the same in private place why the hell do you choose blogging and ponder no one visits. I found this out quite early which actually helped me.
I switched to genre which i always had in me, subtly taking pot shots - Venky 2.0. I brought out the cheeky guy hidden inside me. I started my new journey with IPL’s dubious DLF maximums and strategy breaks. Then i never turned back. I slowly started building up readership. Truth be told i first sailed blogs for gaining one ship thats readership. I have this luck, whatever i do ends ending very good; call it “Naradhar Kalagam” or whatever; I sailed towards friendships.
As months passed by, my areas of writing improved from taking pot shots to fiction writing and a bunch of vote less Blog-a-Tons. If i can look back and see my year of blogging; 51 posts, 32 followers, close to 1000 comments, 1 interview, page rank 2, 1 blogadda pick (which i didn't nominate); not bad.
Well, I didn't earn enough from this to buy 2 kachoris, 2 mirchi Bajji and a jalebi which costs 25 bucks but a few friends and experience i earned through blogging simply priceless.
