It always seems impossible, until it is done.

When I initially started this blog, I never thought it would get to where it has today. On June 13th, almost exactly 7 months after I first started it,  I hit a major milestone which I would love to share with all of you – my readers, and my pillars of support – known and unknown to me =)

Milestone 1: I hit 1,000 views on my blog (I don’t even know who lucky 1,000th was, but I’m grateful!). That’s ONE THOUSAND VIEWS. For a writer, to know that there are people waiting to read my posts, is an amazing feeling. To know that in a little over half a year, there are a thousand views on what comes out of my heart and mind…that is another feeling altogether. I feel blessed that you think I am worth your time. Thank you for giving me this joy =)

Milestone 2: This may seem silly to most of you, or it may not. Regardless, I have to share this! My 1,000th visitor also gave me a wonderful gift…The knowledge that there was a search term that got me onto the first page on Google search! Without even trying!!! The search term was ‘top twenty something writers blog’ (it showed up on my statistics page), so I typed it into Google, and I was ecstatic at the result…because I wasn’t expecting it! First page on Google; that really means a lot. And I don’t even know how!

So that is the biggest thing to happen =) Thank you to all of you for affirming my faith in my writing, and making me believe it matters =) It inspired me to write some more, hence the Day 13 being published, and Day 14 is on its way too. Now that the semester is done, I’m hoping to have enough and more time to write more regularly. Again, to all of you – my 30 fellow blog enthusiasts, 90 Facebook likers, and 93 folk from the Twitter-verse – from the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate the support =)

The only constant in life, is change…

I have to begin this the way that has became annoyingly too familiar lately….I’m sorry. I’m sorry for this long gap in posting anything. I have only had enough time to be scribbling on scraps of paper, rather than construct my blog posts. Being a Masters student, before you know it, assignments are on top of you like nobody’s business, and you get sucked into the whole avidness of life’s routines. Even if you don’t want to, you do.

I know, it has been a while since I’ve last written. I’m just on the verge of completing a very tough semester at uni. And I genuinely miss writing and sharing what I have to say with all of you.

I’m glad that all/most of you are still here. One more week, and I will be free to do what I love. One more week, I ask you to bear with my tardiness. One more week, that’s all.

In the meantime, to some of the regulars on my blog (and to the rest of you, if you have the time), I would like to ask you for a favour. There is a wonderful job in my city that I want to apply for next week. The only thing I can use to apply for it is something I have written that isn’t work-related. And I’m allowed only one item of submission. I would like to pick a blog post, but I can’t decide which one. If any of you can oblige and help me pick, I will forever be grateful. If you’d like to comment here, or inbox me, that will be amazing.

Thank you for your patience. And if you choose to help me, thank you in advance for that.

Till you read me again next week, and you will (I intend to keep my word this time)  :)

Of apologies and the like.

Yes, I’m sorry. That’s what this post is about. I know that there are a few of you who read my posts and actually wait for the new ones. And it floors me to see that, every time. I  recently crossed 60 likes on my Facebook page, and 750 views on the blog itself. A part of me is stunned, and a greater part is humbled.

There are a tangible few of you who don’t even know me and still read what I have to say, no matter what. Thank you!

To those who do know me and continue to read what I have to say on a regular basis, thank you to you too. You give me a renewed confidence in my writing, with your comments, criticism and feedback. Know that any input is good, and is appreciated!

I will probably have a slew of posts coming your way, and I know some of you are going to say they are long overdue, but I appreciate your patience. Being a uni student with relentless assignments, and an international one – with ties back home – it does get hard to keep the posts going. But yes, at least over the next ten days, I promise to have a whole lot more for you to read!
