Here I am, writing my 200th post for this blog, the blog that I had started as an outlet for my emotions. I was completely new to this sphere, didn’t know many people who were into blogging, basically knew nothing about it. I thought of exploring this zone myself, and soon started off with writing my own blog where I used to rant and speak my heart out, because I knew no one is going to judge me. Little did I know, I soon started getting followers and random people started commenting on my blog. At first I was like, “Am I even supposed to reply? I don’t even know this person.”
Slowly, I started writing my secrets and troubles and happiness out here, and it surprised me how people from across the globe could relate to it and gave me words of inspiration and supported me. In today’s world, even your close friends cannot be trusted, but the WordPress community took me by surprise. I was astounded with the fact that if I am going through a certain situation, there are people out there who can relate to me and that in itself is amazing. Instead of judging me, on WordPress, people could relate to me and we would help each other grow.
Being from India and never have travelled outside this country, I can now say that I know people from Nigeria, Australia, London, Spain, Canada, Ireland, UAE, basically from everywhere. It was only yesterday that my mom was asking me about my blog and my followers and I told her that majority of them are not even from India, and she was surprised how her daughter is connecting to people from outside India so easily. Wonderful how this one platform that I didn’t know much about has simply widened the horizon for me. People from different parts of the world can relate to me, they like my writings, they help me with honest comments so that I can improve, they inspire me, they motivate me, I get love and blessings from people I don’t even know personally.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much that means to me. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for all the love and support you guys have given me. So much love makes my heart heavy, so many well wishers out there, so much support, so many wonderful people.
I had never thought that a simple blog of mine could connect to so many people that they would actually care to follow my blog. I had never thought to come this far. I know its just my 200th post, but for me, this 200 is a lot. I promise to write more and connect more and make many more friends out here. You guys are like family to me, my WordPress family.
I love you guys, each one of you.
This blog means a lot to me just because of you guys.
I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
