It's Been Three Years

...since I started this blog. (Which is why the Guy gifted the blog the new header.)

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.

Time flies on blogs, doesn't it?

Unmana said...

Dipali: I can't, right now. I love it too much.

D: Actually, to me it seems like it's always been a part of my life.

I am a lucky guy to read your three years within 1 month and only 6 more months left :) Isn't it cool?

Unmana said...

Siva: I thought over your comment for a few moments, and am still not quite sure I got it right: you mean you have six months archives' of my blog to go through? If that's what you mean - thanks for taking the trouble of reading all my old posts. I'm flattered.

Yes, you got it right. It is not at all a trouble. Infact i feel more matured and grown up personally. Keep it going :)
