Six Years of Blogging

That's right, I've been blogging for six years. The early posts make me cringe, and there are many opinions I have revised. But I'm glad to see that I've become smarter over the years! If older = wiser, I guess that is a good trade-off.

For those of you who haven't following me from the beginning (which is everyone except the Guy? and maybe Pallavi?), here are some posts that still make me smile, not cringe, when I read them again.

If you're a lurker, this might be a good time to come out and say hi! And lurkers and commenters alike: tell me why you come here.

Congratulations!

I love being in blog-contact with a woman from an entirely different part of the world. And I love your writing. Thank you for all the wit and wisdom you have shared here.

R's Mom: Yes, yes, we know it's you. :)

Thank you for the kind comment. I've contemplated continuing with the Voices in My Head, but it didn't make a lot of sense to me. I want to write more fiction, but not for some months, I think. I just can't find the time or energy.

Yay for 6 years for blogging! If it weren't for this forum, I'd be missing out on knowing you. Even though we have Effe in common and we live in the same city whereas she doesn't, the distances and schedules are such that I can't see you as often as I'd like to. But thankfully, your blog is at my fingertips. I believe I've read every single post of yours, and whether I agree with the content or not, I love you for your clarity of thoughts and the ability to express them well :)

Unmana said...

Pallu: Aw, thank you. Now I'll have to try harder to meet you soon!

Hi Unmana,

Congratulations on your six years and here is to six more :-). Just wanted to let you know that you are one of my fav bloggers (though I hardly ever comment) and your mid-week reads are a pathway to me to so many other blogs that I might otherwise never have had a chance to read. Thank you :-)

Unmana said...

Sanjana: Thank YOU!
