Happy Birthday Blog

This blog is exactly one year old today. And what an exciting year it has been! 

First about the blog - we have had name changes, layout changes, and even address change. I hope the current stuff is here to stay, at least for some time. 

The most important bit - THANK YOU to all my wonderful blog buddies. Your support and participation has been a real motivation behind this blog, and it has made the process all the more enjoyable. Of the many social networking tools, blogging is where I spend most of my time - and it's thanks to you :-) So THANK YOU. 

Some symbolism 
Though I hadn't planned on it, and frankly it didn't occur to me until I began writing this post - there is a great symbolism behind the journey from Lost Wanderer's Writing Blog to Writer Revealed. 

When I first started this blog, after several years of writing many first drafts and treating writing as a hobby, I had finally realised that I wanted this - more than anything, and this is what I was meant to do. So when I got serious about writing, I started this blog. At the time, I had good intention and a lot of motivation, but I was lost. I had no idea about all the blogs and information and all the millions of rules of writing and submitting. Before that, I just used to write. 

It has been a long journey, but during that journey, I have come a long way. From a Lost Wanderer, afraid to say I was a writer, now I say that with confidence. I may not be a published author yet, but I am sure as hell a writer, and I will remain one for the rest of my life. So how apt that I happened to choose "Writer Revealed." 

This blog has recorded the most monumental year for my writing - and I plan to continue this journey with you, as I progress to different stages as a writer. I hope you will stick with me. 

And I look forward to witnessing your own journeys, and cheering you along as we all move forward on this crazy-ass path, each in our own way. 

Lots of smiles and best wishes to you all :-))))

  6. Adam,

    Thank you. I think you were the first to follow this blog, and it was so encouraging because at the time I thought no one would possibly want to read it :-))


    Thanks. Glad I found yours too. Looking forward to hearing more about Skully.

    C R,

    It's been lovely getting to know you, and all your wide variety of interests and research. Looking forward to more years of that.


    It's been wonderful to find someone who uncannily thinks like me in many ways - though drastically different in others (you garden ..urgh all those insects :P) and I have enjoyed getting to know you, and being inspired by your super organised plans. Your publishing days are just around the corner, that's for sure.


    You are just so fun and so sweet. Thanks for hanging around here, and looking forward to sharing both our progresses over the years :-)

    You all are just fab :-D

  7. Yay for birthdays! What a great year.

  12. Thanks Karen :-) It is quite liberating.
