All the media, visual, as well as print are on a spree of round-up of 2010; let me join them.:P
2010 as any other year has been of ups and downs. There have been new thoughts, new stories and a new place. This was the year that I shifted from blogger to wordpress and this was also the year when I finally accepted myself and began a new journey.
Blogging has been wonderful, apart from keeping my writing skills alive, it has also acquainted me with wonderful people. A tribute to all of them.
I did not know what blogging meant until I read Mirthquest, although I knew her since long, but reading her work gave me new insights as also new words. (I am a person who uses words more than 6 letters very rarely).
SHe writes rarely but when she does, its worth the wait, each of her work is a jewel, well researched and well documented, Yes she writes Dil se.
I imbibed the art of story telling from him. Give him a situation and he can weave a story around it, yes his stories are such which you will enjoy with kheemapau
She ados about everything- family, current affairs, you name it, for Rachna I wait with bated breath to see what new she has to offer, for her posts are always fresh, covering something new.
A mom of four who is into gardening and photography, her posts are a visual treat. I often wonder how she manages to balance so much.
She takes me ona pilgrimage every time she posts, her posts are a visual treat and a storehouse of information. The fact that we have a common background bonds us more.
I landed on her space by mistake and the fact that she is from Bahrain too hooked me up, enjoy her updates on her baby and life generally.
Reading Anoobhooti us like listening to my mother, the same thoughts, the same views.
She is a fairly new acquaintance but one which I feel will go a long way
She is one who has fought odds head on and has started anew.
Zephyr is one who have started following recently and whoa, the way she writes.
There are many blogs which I read but these are a few which I am sure to comment on and who have become good friends, so if I have forgotten any; please do not get angry, it just means that there is still time to build new bridges.
Lets welcome the new year,
with new wishes,
holding on to the old,
welcoming the new
With hope in our hearts.
For life will be forever
of ups and downs, new friends and old
new experiences and old wisdom
But for all that keep a window open to allow change
and always keep hope in your hearts.
