Wow! I can't believe that I have completed one year of blogging.

A person so unpredictable that I am, I never knew I will stick to blogging. Being sensitive can be such a pain at times that you don't even know from which side of the bed will you wake the next morning. Dealing with my sensitivity and using it in a productive manner was a challenge for me. Also, giving an outlet to my thoughts and expressions was a need which had to be addressed. Another, most important thing was that I needed an anchor. I found mine in my blog, or rather blogging. Because my blog alone ( like a stand alone PC) won't have helped me. Only, and only hearing from other people, through comments, sometimes through email, on various forums like Indiblogger and Blogadda made the experience so rich, and so satisfying. It's a networked PC now!
I wrote my first post on 21 June 2010 titled My World - My Perception. Today, when I read it, I smile. I guess, my words speak for themselves. Today, I feel mellowed down, soften down.
Often, when I wrote a lively, bubbling post, somewhere I was disturbed from inside. They say words have power. And I do believe in it.... strongly. Words change the way you feel. I tried never to bring in my bad state of mind on the blog, rather concentrated on writing something positive, something nice, something interesting. After writing a post, the comments that followed from blogger pals would brighten up my day.... howsoever low I felt. Each morning, when I turned on my PC and logged in to Blogger.... the dashboard would open up and say "10 or 8 or 5 comments" waiting moderation. Somewhere you feel, you are being heard. Somewhere you feel your views are being reciprocated - in agreement or disagreement. Especially for us, the psuedoanonymous bloggers who know no one in the blogosphere and nor they would share their blog with their friends, it's an amazing feeling to be liked for what you write. To be liked for your expression from unknown people.
Today, I'm a one year old blogger, a more happy person and in love with my blog completely. Can I ask for something more?!
