5 Things I Learned from Blogging Again


Hello scribblers,

How are you all? Long time since my last open letter to you. I know, I know, I was the one who had been absent for so long. Blogging again really seems like a comeback to me- can't even remember the past few years, they were so busy and fast. They still are, but writing is something I loved and therefore I have decided to give it my best effort by managing my time better. I started blogging again at the start of this year, and I am happy to be continuing it. And in this past month or so, there are a few things I have learned:

Consistence is important, in everything we do. Even when we don't feel like doing it. Each day is different, and some days it takes a lot of extra work to get the thoughts from mind to paper. A little push on those days, and a bit of scheduling on the good days can help you on those seemingly bad ones. 

It's quality, not quantity. The number of followers doesn't matter as much as the engagement with them. The number of posts doesn't matter, what matters more is that you like what you write. Yes, we need to have a social presence and we need to interact an build connections, and it is very easy to get carried away with the race for building the number of followers. But, what matters more is that you are enjoying what you are doing. 

Not everyone will believe in you, but the few who do make all the difference. We expect our friends to be the supporter of our dreams and ambitions at the very minimum (that's what friends are, right?), but the real ones are barely a handful. I am lucky to have such those few in my life.

We need to make timeThere will always be something that needs to be done. I work 40+ hours a week, and also I need to study. It becomes really hard to get into a peaceful state of mind which I need to think and write. But, none of it comes naturally, not in this fast paced life. We need to prioritize the things we want to do and also the things we need to do, and manage our time accordingly.

And last, but not the least- the person who gave me the nudge to start this blog in the first place, is still probably the only person who still likes to help me out and invest in my dreams. She is a Madhubani artist- I love her paintings and the detailing in her art pieces. Send her some love here

I still tend to get overwhelmed with all the things that I have to juggle, now and in future too, but this is something I want to continue. And you all keep inspiring me!

Love and hugs,
