TODAY MY BLOG IS 12 MONTHS OLD
Today is a momentous day for me and a day I feel very proud of. Twelve months ago today I started this blog not knowing where it would go or even if I had enough to write about. I had a few doubters when I started with comments such as “Oh Lakshmi…a travel blog? What next!” but I blundered into the world of blogging full of hope and happiness regardless. And guess what…after twelve months of blogging I’m still filled with hope and happiness.
I started this blog as I always found it hard to find great tips on travelling in India. I love to squirrel around in places and find lots of interesting spots everywhere I visit and I felt I had something to offer. It gives me immense pleasure to pass these tips onto you. I have expanded my blog slightly to incorporate other places I visit during the year besides India.
THE HIGHS OF BLOGGING
The absolutely wonderful, interesting and engaging people I have met on my blogging travels. You all inspire me, cheer me on and keep me buoyed with your comments and tips.
Following and reading some amazing blogs on a vast range of topics has been a huge highlight. I’m always quoting to Rahul something I have read on a blog that I follow.
Pushing myself to be a better writer and photographer each day. I’m still learning but having lots of fun doing so.
I know it sounds reward driven but I do adore your sweet comments and likes. They help to show me what you are interested in and what you might like more of.
It is a great way for me to document my year…to see where I’ve been and what I’ve done.
THE LOWS OF BLOGGING
- There are none!
So where to from here? I would love your comments and feedback on things you like, dislike about my blog. What would you like more or less of?
When I looked back at my early posts many of them had no likes, no comments and very few people reading them because it was a new blog. I hope to republish some of these posts over the next few months as some have some interesting and useful information in them.
So my tip to anyone wanting to start a blog is this ~ grab Ganesha ~ remove those obstacles and go, go, go!
