It started as a way to keep in touch with friends, in place of the emails I used to write to a bunch of them most mornings, as a way to start the day. Hardly any of those friends come here now, but I've gained a whole bunch of new ones!
I used to write mostly of personal things, of moments and experiences with the Guy. Then I started getting more personal, writing about my beliefs and what makes me tick. Then I started getting political. I started writing about movies. I put up my attempts at flash fiction.
The last year has been exceptional. I got listed here for India's top blogs. I hosted the 60th Carnival of Feminists.
Back when I started, I had a job that left me with some free time, and I was trying to build up a habit of writing. (For the record, I still am.) The last few months have found me very busy in my (now not so new) job. I have hardly had time to read other blogs, let alone comment. Time and again I have thought of giving up this blog.
But I couldn't. I don't know when I will, but certainly not right now. Forgive me if I don't come around and comment. I hope - selfishly - that you will still come around and read.
